New Year - New resolutions! Am I right? But it really doesn't matter that much if you not doing anything different than a year before. Seeing new places and be off the grid for some time is very refreshing. But you will need a very good companion for that to happen! By that, I mean your backpack.

1) OSPREY FARPOINT is one of the most popular packs. The Farpoint is available in three different sizes — 40L, 55L, and 70L, but for carry on 40L would be the most suitable. It doesn't have a lot of adjustable straps just flying around, so it looks rather professional than a typical backpacker style. So it is comfortable and classy as well. I would love to try 55L one, because it has detachable daypack.
