Ben Davenport wrote a review of Osprey Packs Talon 44 Backpack - 2600-2700cu in on July 1, 2012
This pack is the exact size I was looking for. For the crag, for traveling, and for some hsorter camping trips. I find the number of straps and loops and such that cover it to be unnecessary. Other than that though, it performs as expected. The hip belt doesn't fit me perfectly (if only it could go about an extra inch tighter...5'9/145), but the pack actually still works pretty well. It's not perfect, but most of the weight stays on my hips and it is certainly a comfortable pack.
I'd say to try it on at REI or some such, but it seems to work pretty well on my traveling and climbing trips around the Santa Monica Mts thus far.
