I'm set on getting the Farpoint 55 as my backpack but just wondering if any of you are aware as to what the main differences are between the S/M and M/L? I know the capacity of the S/M is 52l as opposed to 55l and there's an extra 2 inches in the height of the M/L. Does anyone know if there is any difference in the length of the hip belt or any other measurements?
Why don't you simply email Osprey and ask them? Their service department is generally very good.
I am going to pop into a shop over the weekend and ask but just wondered if anyone here might have an idea beforehand
Since you're trying them firsthand then any info from here is immaterial. Nothing beats getting fitted properly, right on the spot.
Osprey makes good stuff. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
