    Hey Anne! I am so glad I came across your site. Me and my husband are planning a world tour and also want to do a bunch of multi-day hikes including the Annapurna Circuit. I am shopping around for a backpack and was curious about which pack you used for the hike. Was it the Farpoint 40? What was your experience using it for long hikes?

    Are there no straps on the lower back of the pack to carry mom items like sleeping bags or yoga matts/sleeping pads?

    How do you carry your Matt?

    I meant long items*. Not mom items

    Just out of curiosity, why do you think it’s not good for multi-day hikes?

      Hey David, you can definitely use this for multi-day hikes but IMO there are better options…

      Couple reasons why:

      1- Multi-day hiking means you’ll be carrying a heavy pack on the trail. For this we really want sturdy hip pads to keep the weight off your shoulders.

      2- The pack is a bit more “square” in shape. This is great for fitting into the overhead bins aka carry-on sized. However, for longer hikes/overnights, it’s better to have a more “tall and skinny” shape that will keep the weight on your hips better rather than pull you backward.
