Description

Carry your gear and water in lightweight comfort by foot, bike, or your chosen mode of outdoor transport.

Navigate on foot through a labyrinth of trees until you reach a river, hop in your canoe and paddle over to where your mountain bike is waiting, jump on and pedal to the finish line. Whether you're in the middle of an adventure race, or just working your way through a typical weekend day, the Osprey Talon 22 Backpack is an excellent lightweight carrier for your gear and water along the way. This panel-loading backpack holds up to twenty pounds of gear, while its mesh-padded shoulder straps and hip-belt wrap you in breathable, cushioned comfort. The hip-belt's ErgoPull adjustment makes it easy to tighten or loosen on the fly, and the shoulder straps, harness position, and sternum strap can also be adjusted for a perfect fit tailored to your anatomy and load. The ventilating ridged foam back panel keeps you fresh through long day hikes or multi-sport excursions.

A pull-out helmet attachment fits through the vents on your bike helmet to secure it to the front of the pack, loop and bungee attachments hold tools and trekking poles, and multiple smaller pockets hold items you'd like to quickly access. Control the volume of your load with side compression straps, and use the straps to hold additional items. The backpack's rugged nylon fabric stands up to the abuse that long days outdoors throw at it, so by all means, put it to the test and get outside for plenty of long days.

Years of Use

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This pack has been with me for about 3 years now and it is still going strong. From doing my first 14er to serving as a grocery pack, it has done everything perfectly. I've even been able to stuff it with my camping gear for a one-night backpacking trip.

If you want a pack that will hold up for years and will be highly versatile, look no further. I will continue to buy this pack and recommend this to friends.

Still my go-to pack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had this pack for about 2 years now, day in day out to work, class, riding my bike, hiking, climbing, carrying extra clothes, beer and snacks. It has definitely worn out over this time, but it is still holding strong. The hip belt pockets are perfect for hiking and biking, and the reflective patch on the back is good for biking as well. Highly recommended, and I'll probably get another one as soon as mine totally craps out.

GOAT IS GOOD

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Own a bunch of osprey packs in various configurations. Bought this as a light weight pack for bikepacking and general day pack use. On a recent desert bikepack trip, I was able to put a 4 Liter bladder in the sleeve and a couple extra liters in the pack and still had ample room for other crap. Hip belt, shoulder strap adjustments etc, ensured a great fit. The weight of all the water while biking dozens of miles off-road each day was less than ideal (hot, high center of gravity for dirt cycling). The newer talons have the helmet holder?awesome feature helping to keep track of helmet and in when gravel grinding on easy terrain, I shed the helmet in favor of a sun hat. Another bomber offering from Osprey. This is a pretty high volume pack that if over-packing or packing dense materials (like water, food etc.,) can get pretty heavy, pretty quick?negating the fast/light that you probably bought thick pack for.

Does the Talon 22 come with an integrated rain cover?

Hey Kevin,

Osprey offers rain covers as accessory items.

I would recommend checking out the Osprey Packs UL Rain cover. It looks like the small would be a nice tight fit but you might want to consider the medium if you plan on having a very full pack!
