Description

Lightweight and high-performance with multi-sport versatility.

You might only have the weekend to head out into the wilderness, but the Osprey Talon 33 Backpack has your back whether you're a light-and-fast backpacker heading out for an overnight or you're more of a summit-in-a-day adventurer who starts pre-dawn and ends just as the sun sets. The designers at Osprey molded the Airscape back panel somewhat like a chimney to ventilate any excess heat so your back isn't a sweaty mess when you reach your campsite or lunch spot. Biostretch covers the shoulder straps and waist-belt for maximum comfort and breathability while you hike, and the ErgoPull tabs cinch across your waist for an ideal fit. If you've set up camp and want to take a quick hike up to the ridge, just remove the top lid and pack your camera and a snack inside.

The Talon 33's external hydration sleeve makes your reservoir easy to refill, side stretch pockets can fit extra water or snacks, two zippered pockets at the waist-belt carry a point-and-shoot, lip balm, or sunscreen, and one front panel pocket holds your map, a book, or a last-minute item you might want before you head out. The shoulder straps have Stow-On-The-Go attachments for your trekking poles when the trail is nice and flat, and lower InsideOut straps compress the pack down quickly and simply. This pack even has two ice tool attachment loops with bungee tie-offs so you can continue using it throughout the year.

Perfection?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm beginning to believe this is the perfect pack.

My first test was a 10 mile run on a pretty uneven trail. With the pack being close to full, and around 18 pounds, it felt very comfortable and stable as I navigated multiple obstacles. The venting on the back panel really is a nice touch.

After a few more short runs, I took it on an overnight 50 mile round trip. Was really glad with my purchase after having just enough space, with plenty of comfort and stability.

I don't plan on using this for anything but fastpacking, but it really could be used for whatever you need it for.

Not too shabby!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I used the backpack for a long day hike. 17 miles through the high peaks of NY. I fell twice, once in a mid puddle, and it still held up well. Lots of room and the option to remove the top compartment makes it pretty convenient. I was a little skeptical about the toughness since it seems lightweight and thin in spots. But, the pack made it through the day with no holes and was VERY comfortable. I highly recommend it. It cleaned up easily and I got to my gear without trouble all day.

Not too shabby!
Unanswered Question

The 33 in S/M is marked at being 66 cm...

The 33 in S/M is marked at being 66 cm tall - i suppose this is from the bottom to the top of the top pocket when stuffed full .
Does anyone have the measurement of just the height of the padded back panel ?
How tall would the pack be if not packed all the way up ,
with the top pocket zinched flat and down with the front vertical straps?
I've seen pictures of people hiking like this , and the size of the pack resembles the smaller Talon 22 quite nicely.

But leaves the option for more space when needed.

Thanks a bunch,
Erik

Here's how I use the plastic C buckles in order to shorten straps "leftovers" - used to do a similar thing to tactical bags back in the army days - the point is (obviously) to shorten the straps length, to minimize the number of loops the bag got and the possibility of straps getting caught into stuff. You can also do the same thing for the rest of the straps using a good Tesa tape, simple fold into a box shape to desired length and then tightly apply few rolls of Tesa tape to hold it down.

One of the best bags I've ever owned

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had this bag for 4 years now, and it still amazes me everytime I use it. I've done everything with it from day hikes, winter day hikes, summer over nights, traveled through Europe, days at the crag, cycling, and everything in between. It's comfortable, light weight, and built like nothing I've ever seen. The bag is simple, but has the capability to haul probably more than it's designed for (45lb). Not only does it just work seamlessly, but it is also very good looking. All in all if you are looking for a general hiking bag (of which there are many), I would stick with the Talon series. I've had the 22 and I have the 33 now (the 22 was stolen), and they are hands down my 2 favorite. If you are just getting into hiking, I would get one of these over any other bag because they have a timeless design, and are very reliable, and most of all they can be with you from your first day hike, to your last peak 14er's. Totally worth the cash for the quality this bag provides.

Its Got My Back

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love it. I love it. I love it. I've had dozens of packs. This is my favorite by far. I use it for everything. Short hikes, long distance hikes, carry-on luggage, weekend suitcase, bicycle beer transport. One thing I'm non-plussed about is the cheesy talon/flame design on the back.
