    Carry your gear in lightweight comfort.

    Navigate on foot through a labyrinth of trees until you reach a river, hop in your canoe and paddle over to where your mountain bike is waiting, jump on and pedal to the finish line. Whether you're in the middle of an adventure race, or just working your way through a typical weekend day, the Osprey Talon 22 Backpack is an excellent lightweight carrier for your gear and water along the way. This panel-loading backpack holds up to twenty pounds of gear, while its mesh-padded shoulder straps and hip-belt wrap you in breathable, cushioned comfort. The hip-belt's ErgoPull adjustment makes it easy to tighten or loosen on the fly, and the shoulder straps, harness position, and sternum strap can also be adjusted for a perfect fit tailored to your anatomy and load.

    The ventilating ridged foam back panel keeps you fresh through long day hikes or multi-sport excursions. A pull-out helmet attachment fits through the vents on your bike helmet to secure it to the front of the pack, loop and bungee attachments hold tools and trekking poles, and multiple smaller pockets hold items you'd like to quickly access. Control the volume of your load with side compression straps, and use the straps to hold additional items. The backpack's rugged nylon fabric stands up to the abuse that long days outdoors throw at it, so by all means, put it to the test and get outside for plenty of long days.

    The best pack for Mountain Biking

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I admit it I carry a lot of stuff when I ride. I like to have jacket and all the necessary equipment to get me through the ride irregardlessable if I am riding local or on a 10 day bikepack. This pack carries it all and you don't even notice it. This is my second one, the first was so sun baked the fabric spontaneously tearing. Carry a lot or little this pack does it all and you won't even notice.

    All Day, Every Day!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had the same Talon 22 for the last 6 years. It's seen me through more addresses than fit on a rental application, and more hikes than could be counted on the whole office's fingers and toes. I love love love it!
    The first thing to notice is how light it is, without sacrificing structure and utility. The hip belt has pockets (for snacks), and is easily adjustable. The two smaller inside pockets are perfect for your headlamp/keys/snacks or whatever treasures you need to keep accessible.
    I really love the stretchy external pocket, a necessary stash spot for that extra layer as desert days heat up.
    I'm a big fan/critic of pockets--when they're in the right place, in the right fabric, it's the bee's knees. Osprey nailed the design of every tiny detail on this pack: the stretchy side pockets are easy to slip a Nalgene into while walking, and the hydration compartment easy to adjust and keep your water bladder in place.

    Truly, I cannot say enough good things about this pack! From an airplane carry-on to my roaming briefcase working Outdoor Education, the Talon 22 is just perfect.

    Do It All

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this pack, it has everything you need as far as features go along with top of the line comfort and ventilation. Osprey is king when it comes to adjustment and fit and the talon lives up to that reputation. Let me know if you have any questions on this or any other hiking gear!

    A backpack for everything

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I originally purchased this backpack because i thought it would be a good daypack for hikes and most adventures in general. After owning this pack for 3 years and going on countless adventures , from local trails to intense volcano trekking in costa rica this is my favorite bag because of its size and durability.

    My Go-To

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been an Osprey fan for a long time. This 22 liter pack is truly a perfect day pack. The lid lock holds a bike helmet, but also a climbing helmet. The storage is ample and organized without being overdone. Perhaps my favorite feature is the mesh front and side pocket material. It's extremely flexible and can keep an absurd amount of external gear at quick access. This material also shines on the hip belt pockets were a smartphone or clif bar easily fit. I recently fit a 30 m rope, harness, small rack, crampons, food for the day, three liter reservoir, random small stuff, down vest, and of course ice axe and trekking poles in this beast for a winter class 3/4 14er ascent in Colorado. Solid. Overall, super light, comfortable, well considered pack.

    Simply put... Perfect

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this pack for mountain bike-packing. I don't put any gear on my bike so handling is never compromised. This pack is weightless and makes it so I can only haul the essentials. It seriously is a dream. I even used this for a 4 day fishing trip into the windrivers as my only pack.

    Perfect for everything

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This pack goes everywhere with me! Its perfect for hitting the office and loading up for a day hike. I can even fit my trad rack in it for those longer approaches and the suspension supports the weight with out any hesitation.

    The osprey warranty on the packs make them worth any penny. I've contacted them once and they were more than happy to help me out!!

    Lightweight Day Pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Great for day hikes, very light weight and fits everything you need! Front pocket stretches a bit so it allows for clothes to sit comfortably and be easily accessed. Deep pockets, hip belt works well for light loads. Great for minimalists.

    Perfect Day Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This Osprey bag is the perfect day pack for short or long hikes! It is my new go to pack, having switched from a Gregory pack a couple of weeks ago. I have gone on several long day hikes with this pack and it carries my water, extra layers, food, camera, and much more with plenty of room to spare. The pockets on the side are great for water bottles as well, and the small pocket at the top is perfect for your phone or any smaller items. It is also great when traveling as a carry on and I highly recommend.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    i have always been pleased with Osprey throughout the years. sadly my window was smashed in California and the thief only took my 10 year old day pack. when it was time to replace i knew exactly what i wanted. rarely do i bike with a pack on but having a pack that rides well and hikes well is a huge plus in simplifying my gear closet.

    Lasts a Lifetime!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am not easy on gear, especially bags. This pack has gone from an day pack to a school bag to my daypack in Australia. I've carried more weight in it than I should have and its stood up to the test of time. It holds more than you think it will and is much like a secret ninja in that way.

    So if you are looking for that perfect day or travel pack, look no further. The lightweight suspension is breathable and comfortable. I've carried everything imaginable in this pack from water bladders to laptops and cameras.

    Best day pack

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been waiting on the upgraded version of the Talon. This pack is absolutely comfortable. I kinda wish they would have made the Talon 18 in the upgraded version, but this pack is wonderful. It will be great for traveling out of country and I feel this could also be a good pack for ultralight backpacking. Overall I am very satisfied with this pack

    My go-to day pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've been using a Talon 22 for years, and the newest version is improved. I appreciate that not much changed about my favorite pack, and what did change made for a more comfortable carry.

    I don't take much on day hikes, so the 22 is even a little big, but provides enough extra room for stuff for my dog. I'm not usually carrying more than 10-15 lbs, but even there the older Talon felt close to it's max. The improved foam back panel has a continuous top to bottom stiffness that doesn't flop like the old version, but is still flexible, light and airy. There's also an improved seamless hip belt that pulls the pack into my lower back more effectively, making the load feel more secure.

    Otherwise, it's still my familiar old friend: external access to hydration reservoir, non-scratch sunglasses pocket, stretch mesh kangaroo pocket and water bottle pockets, good compression and big, easy-access pocket for everything else, with just a little mesh organizer inside to hold my keys and wallet.

    My Favorite!

      For years, even before the women's version, the Osprey Talon 22 has been my go to. So comfortable, I forget I am wearing it! This update makes it even better - more comfortable backpanel and harness. Don't wait!
