Osprey Talon 33 -

The Osprey Talon 33 Pack is a backcountry pack that provides the greatest hiking luxury ever: freedom from a poorly ventilated, sweaty back. The AirScape backpanel, molded ridge foam back, and air chimney are all integrated into this bag to provide optimized ventilation that will have you focused on the trail instead of the load you're carrying. The zippered map pocket makes sure your map is in easy reach, and this hydration compatible back will carry your water resevoir with ease. This top-loading bag features internal and external compression components that keep your load in place and makes sure it doesn't shift. I found out the hard way that rabbits don't like ranch dressing on their carrots.

Biostretch covers the shoulder straps and waist-belt for maximum comfort and breathability while you hike, and the ErgoPull tabs cinch across your waist for an ideal fit.

The Talon 33's external hydration sleeve makes your reservoir easy to refill, side stretch pockets can fit extra water or snacks, two zippered pockets at the waist-belt carry a point-and-shoot, lip balm, or sunscreen, and one front panel pocket holds your map, a book, or a last-minute item you might want before you head out. The shoulder straps have Stow-On-The-Go attachments for your trekking poles when the trail is nice and flat, and lower InsideOut straps compress the pack down quickly and simply. This pack even has two ice tool attachment loops with bungee tie-offs so you can continue using it throughout the year.

Osprey Talon 33 Reviews:


The Talon 33 is what a backpack should be: light in weight, high in quality and design,rugged and reliable. I used the pack for a Rim to Rim to Rim in June last year and found it to be a valuable asset to our ardous trip. Alas, in a moment of my inattention, a squirrel ate a couple of holes into it. No problem, Osprey fixed the pack to 'as new', free of charge. Highly recommended!

My girlfriend loves it!

Bought this for my girlfriend to get more into backpacking and she loves it. Especially since its purple. She has used it on numerous trips as well as bike trips and traveling. It packs very well and has many pockets and features to keep all of her things organized which she really likes. Great buy for a lightweight light load pack.

My husband bought this backpack to bike around France for a week. It was very spacious and lightweight. I thought for sure, he would complain that it was uncomfortable (he can be hard to please), but he had no complaints. It held 5 days worth of clothes, a pair of loafers, his iPad and toiletries.

A great Day Pack

The Talon 33 carries a load at half the weight! And it is fully adjustable. At only 2 lbs the Talon can carry everything that you will need for the day comfortably. It has all the adjustments of a full size packback.

Great weekend excursion pack

Great pack if you are using for a light overnight trip. Not an ideal pack for climbers since the pack will make you uncomfortable after loading more than 28 pounds and hike with the loaded pack more than 6 miles.

Sleek and Light

This has been a wonderful, do everything pack for me. I use it for extended day hikes and travel. The packbag is light weight with good padding and ample capacity for long hikes.
