anyone else have some useful input on the farpoint 55?

It's a perfectly fine backpack from a very solid company with a great reputation.

It's one size up from the Farpoint 40 that I linked for you back in Reply #3.

Cheers,

Yes, thank you. Im aware of that. I would like to hear from people that have used it if you don't mind.

I've used it before and I know several other people who like it too. It's a good travel backpack for a bigger person who needs to carry 3 seasons worth of clothing and extra footwear. A couple of the people - including myself - didn't bother using the zip-on daypack and instead used our own.

It's a very popular backpack that you see all the time. Osprey products are everywhere these days.

Cheers,
Terry

I agree that packing more than 50 will be excessive for your size. I went on a backpacking trip with a girl your height several years ago and she looked rather silly carrying a backpack that was nearly as tall as her! Of course, if appearances don't matter, you may opt to take that route regardless.
