Osprey Fairview review: my honest experience with the Osprey Fairview 70L backpack

I’m not traditionally a backpacker. Everywhere I’ve gone in the past, I had done so with a trusty suitcase. But as I went backpacking through Asia for two months, I figured I should listen to the advice of those around me and buy a good backpack. I knew I couldn’t just go out and get one. I needed one that specifically fit my (digital nomad) lifestyle, my body, and that could zip open at the front. So I did my research and after some testing I bought the Osprey Fairview 70L Backpack. I’ve decided to write a lengthy and honest review about the pros and cons and comfort of the Osprey Fairview backpack range.
