Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
So my torso measurement (measured with Osprey's torso measuring tool) is 20.5 inches. That's measured with my neck not bent, some manufacturers ask that you keep it bent, which adds another inch or so.
The medium/large sized talon, according to osprey's website, is good for "19 inches and up". I tried it with a moderate load and the suspension dug into my shoulders and the load lifters couldn't possibly work. Adjusting the straps up and down with the velcro doesn't help; if the height of the suspension is shorter than your torso length, there's no way for it to work properly. I'm going to buy a ULA pack instead, they make them for people in my size. Thanks for the good return policy, backcountry!
I wanted to avoid giving stars, because I'm only giving sizing info, but the form won't let me. So how about 4? Seems like a really nice pack, but I'm disappointed in osprey's limited sizing.
