Osprey Waypoint 80 Men’s Travel Backpack: One Pack for Any Type of Trip

On the heels of yesterday’s first look at the Osprey Nebula laptop backpack, today I’m checking out the Osprey Waypoint 80.

It’s designed as a men’s travel trek pack that carries like a comfortable backpack. The 80-liter Waypoint, coupled with the included detachable daypack, make this the ideal pack for a simple two-week trip into the woods or a year-long gap year trek around the world. It’s durable, well-designed and packed with features and plenty of room for quite literally everything you’ll need for any type of trip.

Features include:

  • A zip-off, foam padded gender specific adjustable harness and fixed hipbelt directly connected to a LightWire peripheral frame
  • Comfort adjustable harness can slide either up or down using the window as a fit guide to locate your proper torso size
  • The tuck-away gender-specific foam padded hipbelt uses Osprey’s exclusive modified straight ErgoPull closure
  • A dual lockable zippered front panel provides access to the main compartment
  • Dual foam padded sidewalls work in conjunction with the StraightJacket compression system to protect contents and stabilize loads
  • Lower/sleeping bag compartment
  • Removable sleeping pad straps

A key component in the latest redesign of this pack is the addition of the fully featured Port Day Pack, a removable daypack with an innovative Port Window tablet access. This zippered sleeve features touch-sensitive film that allows tablet use without removing it from the daypack.

… and it’s all packaged in a nylon shell that’s designed to carry up to fifty pounds, but weighs less than six pounds.

Bonus: it’s also available as the Wayfarer 70 (in Garnet Red or Slate Grey) with women’s-specific hipbelt and harness.

Available now in Slate Gray or Highland Green for around $280 (USD) from Amazon.
