After using the Talon 44 for quite a few years & loving it; I thought I should get the Talon 22 for a day pack or for whatever & I am pleased. Typical quality you would expect from Osprey Packs & very simple. No complaints!
Works for me. . .
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This works really well for me! I like to go on 2-3 day ultra-light trips and this pack holds everything I need. Hammock, warmer clothes, water purifier, a few extras & out you go. The pockets on the hip belt even fit iphone 5+ Otterbox. Strap -30 degree bag to the outside & works for cold weather trips too.
little big bag
Little big bag
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
A good day bag with many of the feature of a much large piece. But the price is lots strap flap which seems to be left out of the promo picture. Definitely on the right track here but i doubt they eat their own cooking. Why would you want a bike bag with flapping straps. This is a well made and very comfortable bag.
I think I'd go for a small Kestrel if I had to do it again.
Capacity too small for good daypack
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
This pack was way too small for what I needed, though it's a beautiful pack, very comfortable with it's back design. One big thing was that I liked the side pockets in the waist strap. However, I was worried about whether my phone would fit. It does! However... I couldn't get good advice by talking to customer service or even get educated on the size (liters OR cu in) to look for; the three packs they recommended were all almost 1/2 the size I described that I needed -- to carry laptop, reading materials, a light jacket, food and beverage for a long flight, then to use as a hiking daypack. I now realize, thanks to researching my daughter's North Face Recon (which is exactly the right size) that I need about 1700 cu in or 28 liters. Now I've sent them all back and am just borrowing hers for the trip :)
Just A Picture
This is what my Meteorite color scheme looks like! I love the deep blueish! Sorry my computer wont let me upload a photo into share a photo!
Great Day Pack!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I have tried this day pack and the Camelback Mule and I like this one better, but I love them both! Hard decision! My favorite part about this pack is the electronics pocket, it is not as padded as the Mule but it is big, in fact it fits my photography camera, which as a pretty decent sized lens! Other than that I really love the hip straps, its always nice to have a hip belt! It looks killer sweet too!
Does this backpack have a tuck-a-way storage...
Does this backpack have a tuck-a-way storage for the hip belts?
The hip belts are fixed but you could fold them back and secure them with the zig-zag side compression straps.
ok great thanks so much!

Hello, I wont to know if this backpack are for woman too.
I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina, you have shipping service to my country? what it the shipping coast?..
My intention is to buy tow of this backpacks, one for women, one for men.
Thank you very much!
Hey Pablo, thanks for your question. Yes, this can be a women's pack too, I am a waist measurement of 25 inches and 5'3 height, the S/M fit me great. We do offer shipping to Argentina and the brand Osprey is not on our vendor trade restrictions. Here is how to caculate shipping costs; First, add the item or items to your cart. Then proceed to checkout (don?t worry?proceeding to checkout doesn?t make you obligated to purchase anything). Enter your address in the billing and shipping fields. Once you change the country, the page will show you the shipping charges. Hope this helps!

This is a great day-pack, perfect size for long days or a quick light overnight trip. I really like the external hydration compartment for your reservoir, I have the Osprey reservoir with the ridged back and it's fit so well in the sleeve. This pack is very adjustable, I can wear it or adjust it to my husbands size with no issues. Fit is very snug and comfortable on your back, the back has ventilation to keep your back nice and cool.
Worked great on Mt Whitney
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought this for my eventual hike of Mt Whitney. It worked great in my practice hikes and for the real deal. The waist strap just barely fits my middle waist spread but should be fine for most people. For water, I used a 3L camelback in it and placed two 750ml bike bottles on the outside pockets.
It took me 9 hours to make it to the top and 7.5 down and the pack was never uncomfortable during that time. I carried in the pack a fleece, light jacket, rain pants, water purifier, hat, gloves, extra socks, and various food items.
Unlike some, I did not have a problem with the inner pocket where my purifier, meds, and some other small items were stored. I found the outside shoulder and waist strap pockets handy to keep my energy bar and gel for the next snack break while I hiked.

Not a huge fan. Incredibly lightweight which is fantastic, but I think Osprey compromised too much. Gripe #1: side compression straps. They're so low that they do nothing for the top half of your pack. If you want your load compressed at all then you're going to be out of luck. Gripe #2: top pocket. There is one large main compartment and the small upper pocket hangs inside the main. This is fine if you have nothing in the top pocket. However, this is literally the only place on the bag to put smallish items like sunglasses, phone, lunch, and have it be secure. Unfortunately, once this pocket fills up (which happened very quickly), it blocks the entry into the main compartment somewhat. The pack is great if all you're carrying is a couple extra layers and don't have any small belongings. I can picture this pack being great for some, but I needed something with more practical design and a much better compression / attachment system. It would have only cost a couple ounces to add additional compression straps and bottom pack straps, and it would have made HUGE improvements to the functionality of the bag. Returned. The lack of versatility isn't worth dropping a few ounces IMO. I may give the Osprey Manta a try...
Have never owned a "hydration backpack."...
Have never owned a "hydration backpack." Reading about various brands - getting confused since have no experience with one for comparison. I'm petite,5'3''. Must have a padded hip belt ( one on my camera backpack great for weight distribution,) and a chest strap would be good too. I'll be hiking ( mostly day trips) Coming up - 4 day rafting trip in Grand Canyon - hiking "stuff" out (going w/ group/tour, so won't hike w/ tent, food, etc. - but will have extra shorts, couple of shirts, small camera, toiletries...) Won't have my large DSLR camera rafting, but will have it other day hikes in the area - SO - need extra space - yet, light overall weight ( I'm not a "spring chick" anymore !) I've previously taken a regular multi-pocket backpack and water bottles -I need a better, Comfortable backpack ! I'd like an Accessible, easy to use hydration system - pretty clueless re: features - magnetic vs. clip for hose (?), etc. Fabric water repellent ? Covers (rain) work well? easy on/off ?
Lots of questions here Janet...
The Talon 22 is a lightweight hiking pack but does not come with hydration. If packability is what you're looking for, pairing this with the 2L or 3L Osprey hydration reservoir (which it is compatible with) is a great option. If you got the Osprey reservoir, it comes with a sternum strap magnet that works with the bite valve to keep the hose from bouncing around.
There is no rain cover that comes with this pack. However, it does work well with a rain cover if you get the proper size cover for this pack. It will fit an extra 2 layers, small camera, first-aid kit, and food for a day. It would also fit a DSLR camera fine with a couple layers and food. A hydration reservoir will fit just fine with either of these loads.
Also, aim for a sized pack and go for the smaller sized pack. Being petite, a sized pack will fit you so much better and make the carry of that pack that much better as well.
Osprey has always done a great job. This pack is no exception. it fits snug vents nicely, and when loaded doesnt feel like i'm biking with a ton of stuff on my back.
This pack works great for longer day hiking. Also perfect for an ultralight over nighter. The pockets on the hip belt are very convenient. Great comfort, even when packed full for all day wear. The adjustability is great and I was even able to let my 12 year old son borrow my M/L size and it fit fine.
Great pack, but odd for long torso.
Overall, the Talon is a phenomenal daypack. I use it for day hiking in the Adirondack high peaks area and Mountain Biking. It has plenty of room for 3 season equipment (I haven't tried it in winter yet, and compresses well to adjust to smaller loads. The side pockets are small, especially when the main compartment is full, so Nalgenes are a difficult (though not impossible) fit. My 3L Camelbak fits into the outer hydration area without much trouble. The hydration bladder does pull down on the top of the pack when attached to the loop provided, but it doesn't affect the fit of the pack. It may, however lead to a premature tear of the top fabric down the road. The harness and hipbelt pockets are huge plus, offering access to snacks, gps, camera, etc without having to stop. My only complaint is that there is an odd pressure point in the back panel as a result of using the pack (M/L model) adjusted to my longer torso (21.5"). I have to extend the adjustable back to its maximum position, and it results in a ridge that presses in horizontally on my upper back, where the fixed back panel ends, and the extended back panel begins. I have talked to another hiker with a long torso, and he solved this same issue by going up to the Talon 33, which apparently has a slightly longer back panel.
Does this pack come with a magnetic chest...
Does this pack come with a magnetic chest strap for the bite valve to clip on to?
Are you putting a new reservoir you purchased separately in it? Those come with sternum strap clips that make them compatible.
Or are you putting a reservoir from a Manta/Raptor/Viper/Verve in? If this is the case, Osprey makes a 3 magnet kit that you can put a magnet on every pack you'd switch the reservoir into that isn't originally a hydration pack...
Fits perfect, doesnt shift around a alot. Lots of room.
