confused....some reviews say this pack rides high if biking, yet it is listed for bike commuting. I mainly bike commute, but sometimes run to work or day hike. Not terribly fussy since I've been using a free Sierra Club backpack for the last four years (it still is holding up) but wished to upgrade.
Seeking something with reflective material and/or bright color, but not sold on just going with Momentum. Two concerns with this pack: rigid frame hitting helmet and can it be laundered??? I'm almost 5'6 but okay in torso to ride man's road/mountain without issue.

The Talon 22 might be perfect for you. It is a great day hiking pack, and also great for bike commuting. It is frameless so it will launder easier and it is will not hit your helmet.
The Stratos 24 will also not hit your helmet but as the hipbelt is a little more robust than the Talon 22, it is meant to sit higher on your torso. However, the ventilated backpanel and the removable rain cover are super nice features that the Talon 22 doesn't have. It is launder-able, but since it has a frame, a front-loading washing machine might be the best option.
So your decision comes down to lightweight/better for biking/great for hiking or ventilated backpanel/better for hiking/good for biking...
