Talon 22L Backpack

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.

Versatile Pack for Every Adventure

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is my second review on this pack. I tested it out for the first time last year on a quick mountaineering day trip here locally near SLC. The 22L size was plenty for all my layers, food, water, crampons, and other essentials for a full day on the mountain. Plus, I the attachment features made it easy to add trekking poles, an ice ax, and helmet to the outside. I've since used it on plenty of hiking and climbing day-trips. It's great to throw in quickdraws or trad gear in on the way to the crag, coupled with the helmet attachment. Easy to throw a rope over top as well. Most recently, I used it to scramble up 200 feet of low grade 5 climbing, traverse accross a ridge, and then run 3.5 miles back down. It was comfortable for the approach and didn't restrict movement while scrambling/climbing (without harness),. I was extremely surprised to find that the pack stayed stable and moved well with me on the run back down. Granted I only had a few pounds of food, water, and backup layers in the pack, while running, but it worked so well I forgot I was wearing it. I've used it for about a year now and honestly can't come up with any real cons. The back panel heats up a bit more than some of the suspended mesh packs on the market, but the ridged foam of the Airscape back panel works pretty well to keep you cool, while also allowing the pack to sit close to your body and maintain a low profile. the hip belt straps are way too long for me, but you can always just cut them down to your size. I recommend this to everyone without hesitation.

My Favorite Pack: Past, Present, Future!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This pack has a special place in my heart. I got this pack (as a hand me down) during my sophomore year of college, I needed a durable pack that could carry my millions of things I hauled to school on a daily basis (yes, I am a bag lady who usually carries 10 bags). I absolutely loved this pack to death- I overstuffed it, overloaded it, and took it on all my adventures (and I mean every adventure, it was with me whether in the car or on my back). This pack held up for 4 years of abuse (after being passed down) and it honestly became somewhat of a safety blanket for me, and people knew me by my extra dirty yellow pack, and I was proud of it. This was my first Osprey pack and I haven't looked back since. I use this pack for everything: climbing (inside and outside), day hiking, cross-country skiing, to school, to coffee shops, to dance rehearsals, on road trips, and really anything in between. It has an amazing amount of zippered pockets for organization, feels comfortable despite heavy loads, has a nice aerated back, has squishy shoulder and hip padding for comfort, and water compatibility. I don't just love this pack for no reason, it is incredibly functional and detailed when it comes to user experience. Below is a picture of my pack laid out after coming back from a day hike. 4 Years after owning this pack, the main zipper broke and I couldn't fix it. After learning about Ospreys amazing warranty program, the "All Mighty Guarantee", I sent in my pack to Osprey. I knew I had nothing to lose, they would either repair it or replace it for me, such an incredible service! Sure enough, they helped me replace my pack and I am once again loving my Talon 22! I was delightfully surprised with transactions with Osprey, especially with a pack that meant so much to me. I love my new Talon! This pack's journey is a testament to a company that stands behind their gear, and that is something I can get behind.

Awesome daypack

This is the perfect daypack for medium to long day hikes. It's comfortable, lightweight, carries well, and has capacity for pretty much everything you might need for a long day in the mountains while not feeling like overkill for shorter outings. It's also totally usable as a commuter/travel backpack, although it's not quite so ideal for that (the lack of a flat bottom makes it liable to fall over if it's leaned up against a wall/desk/etc--not so great if you absent-mindedly set it down with a laptop.) I'd say the ideal use case is a long day hike with variable weather. I've carried 4L of water (3L camelbak plus 1L bottle), lunch/snacks, poles, several layers (shell, down jacket, fleece), and accessories in this with room to spare. The belt pockets are just big enough to hold items like a normal sized smartphone and sunglasses (although you might struggle to fit a really large phone in there). The dedicated knife pocket on the left shoulder strap is a nice touch too. I have not used the ice ax attachment point on the rear for its intended purpose, but it does provide a nice alternative spot to lash on trekking poles if you want to keep them out of the way. The mesh pocket in the back is great for stashing a light shell, hat/gloves, buff, etc (it's also a nice spot to stow a book if you're using it as a carry-on). The durability of this bag is really impressive--over the past five years, I've used it for hundreds of days of hiking and bike commuting and as a carry-on on dozens of flights, and the only signs of wear are stains/marks and very minor fraying on a few straps. I expect I'll get many more years of use out of it. The only (extremely minor) critiques I have are ergonomic details. The waist belt pockets could be just a little bigger to more comfortably fit modern smartphones. The hydration pack sleeve can be a little tricky to load a full 3L bladder in and out of and requires a bit of wrestling to get all the way into a loaded pack. And while the side pockets for water bottles are just big enough to fit a standard 1L Nalgene, it's nearly impossible to securely re-stow one back into the pocket while wearing the backpack--the side straps tend to get in the way. While there's a little room for improvement on these things, they're really minor for how I use the bag and shouldn't dissuade anyone from buying it.

Hey Shannon! This is one of the best product reviews I've ever seen. Thanks so much for sharing such detailed use of the features of this pack. I'm a fan of using the ice tool loop for a camera tripod when I don't need it for its intended purpose. Glad you like it so much!

Shannon - 100% agree with Matt here - GREAT review and thank you for the feedback. Happy Trails! Leta Osprey Rep

Great Daypack

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I used this every day for an 8 day trip to Costa Rica starting with getting on the plane, 7+ day hikes, etc. I was carrying rain gear and water (2 big water bottles) for 3 of us plus insect repellent, camera stuff, etc. It was jammed full but worked great. I used a camelback rain cover which kept it dry when needed. The best part: the waist support carried 90% of the load; I don't like lots of load on the shoulder belts; all I had to do was loosen them to transfer the load down. The "breathable" mesh on the back is better than most backpacks but still not up to rainforest conditions. That said, it was far better than my son-in-law's (plastic) rain proof backback. All in all, a great day pack that I plan to use a lot.

Review for my Backpack What an awesome day pack! You can never go wrong with Osprey! It’s light weight. I was able to carry 3L of water along with a jacket, food and several personal items and didn’t feel a thing while hiking. It carried my trekking poles just fine. It was easy to access my small items in the hip pockets. Overall a great day pack!

Taking it everywhere!

In my book, the best benchmark of quality gear is how long it takes for my girlfriend to steal it. This was an instantaneous snatch and grab. You got your classic quality Osprey hip belt, you got you lovely backpanel mesh (cause back sweat is real), you got your helmet attachment that you can ignore when you're not using it, you got your mesh front stow pocket (for food, extra layers, a charger, etc), you got your stow on the go straps for hiking poles, you don't got your rain cover so maybe pick up a cheap one. Also, there's a water bottle holder, but it's close to impossible for me to grab it while the pack is on my back.

Bomb Technical Daypack

I used this for mountaineering, but it's got a ton of versatile features that would make it an excellent option for climbing, mountain biking, or hiking. You can strap a ton of stuff to this thing and not even notice they are there. Really enjoyed having hip belt pockets to stash small items quickly without having to take the pack off, which is pretty rare for a pack this small.

In between sizes

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I absolutely love this pack. Made with Osprey's typical quality and attention to detail, it's technical features are well thought out and it works well for a variety of activities from hiking to biking to climbing. Unfortunately I am in between sizes. At 5'7", 135 lbs, I have a 30 inch waist and a long torso. I'm not the biggest guy around and frequently find myself in between sizes. I found that with with this pack, the M/L large fits my torso perfectly at it's shortest length, while the waist belt is just a tad too big. But in the S/M size the torso is a little too short even when fully extended, however the waist belt fits perfectly. It's a shame as I really like the size and features of this pack. I planned to use it for longer day hikes but will have to keep looking. I'm sure I'm the odd one out on this as their sizing seems pretty all inclusive, it just didn't work for me.

Oh Jacob! I am sorry the waistbelt didn't work! Thank you for your review! Leta Osprey Rep

Sweet mid sized bike pack!

I've used it several times

As I'm getting into mountain biking, I wanted a pack that would fit well and be able to carry all my essentials and then some. This pack fit the bill and does that job. Lightweight but durable, spacious but streamlined, and the hydration sleeve make it a perfect pack for biking, hiking, or really anything else that ends in "ing".

Awesome pack but too small

I got this pack for my dad for his birthday, he is 6'2 and about 200 lbs. This pack (in M/L size) was awesome but just did not fit his body. It was way too small, the hip straps were way too high and the backpack sat weird on his body. We returned this and got a different pack that fit him better!

Hi Kayla, yes, the Talon series fits most bodies, but not the super long torsos as well. Sorry it didn't work out! Leta Osprey Rep

Best Pack!

I bought this pack about 4 years ago and have used it everyday since. It's lightweight and very comfortable. It is very durable too. I've taken it on a couple canyoneering trips and it has held up nicely, even the mesh. The helmet lock is really great feature too. I've fit my bike helmet on there as well as my climbing helmet and it stays secured on the pack well. I love this pack!

Awesome Day Pack

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Wrote this review of the Tempest 20 but the same applies here as well since this is the men's version of the same pack. The design is the exact same as the Tempest 20 with the exception of a 2 liter difference in capacity. "Perfect size for day hikes. Reservoir sleeve ensures hydration. Enough room for snacks, layers, headlamp, guidebooks and whatever other accessories you want to bring along. Trekking pole carry system makes it easy to stash your poles and retrieve them without removing your pack. Back panel breathes well, hip belt is very comfortable. Inner mesh pocket keeps your small items like keys and wallet easily accessible and not lost in your pack. Pack has a slim design that doesn't expand far from your back and keeps the pack from feeling bulky when fully loaded down. Very well thought out design made with Ospreys classic high quality craftsmanship."

Great Little UL Overnighter

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This pack is a great option for an UL overnight. I was able to get the essentials in for an overnight trip and still come in at under 14 lbs. It forces you to think about what you are packing. 15 mile days and I felt like I had nothing on my back. This pack is definitely worth the investment, if you are looking to try a lighter set up.

Super helpful, thanks for detailing the use model on which you based your review.

Perfect day pack

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

I walked for 3 weeks in the Himalayas with an Osprey Exos 58 and loved it, so thought I’d try the Talon 22 when it was time for a new day pack. I have not been disappointed. I’m currently using it on a two week trip to Montezuma, Costa Rica. I’ve mainly using it for short hikes to waterfalls, beaches and air travel. Rode a horse with it on my back for 4 hours and forgot it was even there. Did a 5 mi hike through the jungle in high heat and humidity. It was as cool on my back as a pack could be in those conditions. It expands and compresses to accommodate the load and it carries very comfortably. It feels light and balanced on my back and is very secure feeling with both the hip and sternum straps buckled. I’m looking forward to using on some longer day hikes, and think it would do well on a warm-weather overnight carrying ultralight gear. An all-round perfect day pack!

Hey Williams, of all the packs Osprey does, the Talon and Tempest series are my favorites (Tempest being the women's version). So light and actually moves with you and is comfortable. Thank you for your great review! Leta Osprey Rep

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.

Can anyone comment, on a S/M I'm looking for the measurement from the seam on the bottom of the pack to the top of the back-panel before you get to the adjustable shoulder harness? Many thanks

Is this a viable option for backcountry skiing? My problem with the Kamber series is lack of external water bottle holders.
