kjrwrote a review of Osprey Packs Talon 11 Backpack - 600-700cu in on October 6, 2008
I purchased my Osprey Talon 11 as a lightweight replacement for my Dakine Heli-Pro (which is perfect on the slopes in winter but a bit heavy for summer sports). I first used it in a summer ultra-distance event and couldn't be happier ... the mesh breathes well, it's really lightweight and it stays securely in place so there's no chafing issues if trail running. I've since used it for mountain biking and it's a nice size for tools plus weather gear. And the gel/snack pockets are right where you need them to be.
