Product Description

Simpler is often better and simply put this is one of the most versatile packs ever created. If you prefer going light and moving fast in the woods mountains and around town the Talon 22 is the pack for you. 22L of capacity is perfect for day hikes urban commutes or a trip to the market. Ventilated and comfortable the BioStretch™ harness and continuous wrap hipbelt combine to create an incredibly stable carry system that hugs your body so you can stay balanced on the trail ridge or peak. We scratched our heads and updated our AirScape™ backpanel to use less material and glue while making it more breathable to keep you cool on hot days. When uphills turn technical our Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole carry system keeps your hands free for upward movement. LidLock™ helmet carry aachieves the same when you stop for a mid-commute coffee. Zippered hipbelts side stretch mesh pockets a harness pocket and top-lid storage provide all the organization you need.

Designed with lightweight construction and useful features for fast movers and multi-sport activities.

From top loaders to lumbar packs and everything in between the Talon/Tempest series accommodates the needs of hikers bikers and more.

Users can't feel seams that don't exist so we left them out. Our updated Talon/Tempest hipbelt makes it easier to focus on the journey instead of the pack on your back.

I LOVE my Talon!!!
I have had this pack for 6 years and I have definitely put it though the ringer. I've brought this pack to 3 different country's and used it everyday. Along with weakly day hikes and multiply road trips, I've definitely gotten my money's worth. It's only started to rip a little on the mesh front pocket, but that's probably just daily wear and tear.

Great for airline travel
Not sure how old this backpack is but it's my oldest. Very durable. Primarily used for airline travel and my Go Bag when not traveling. I'm a minimalist and this is the only bag I fly with. I can pack a weeks worth of clothing for multiple weather conditions and all my essentials. Front mesh pocket is good for sandals or sweatshirt. Perfect size. Just needs to have an additional mesh pocket inside. Top pocket is good to sunglasses. Pockets in the waist strap are perfect for wet wipes. I would buy another one if anything ever happened to this one. Needs Velcro to put a patch on.

Nope, wouldn't buy it due to falling apart
I like the style, design and weight of the pack, but I'm sorely disappointed with the quality. The mesh material on the back is completely falling apart with several holes in it. The mesh on the hipbelt compartments are also falling apart. I've only used the pack for 2 seasons and expected it to hold up much better.

Fix the zipper jam!
My Talon 22 is a good, comfortable fit and gets regular use over 2 years. But the main compartment zipper jams repeatedly in the flimsy narrow covering flap. This continues to be a problem even with close attention during use. A layer of duct tape stiffens the flap and prevents jamming but looks ugly and requires frequent renewal, leaving adhesive to catch dirt.

How this problem evaded you during development testing is beyond me. I suspect that you modified the flap later in production. If so I would request an upgrade.

Love this Pack
I use this pack mostly for commuting by bike, but also for carrying anything around town, or for day hiking. It could totally be used in a minimal overnight setup if you keep things light. The pack is super super comfortable. I regularly load it up with heavy groceries and it hold up well. I love the idea of a little stretch mesh pocket on the shoulder but this one is so tiny that it cant really hold anything. Also, it would be cool to see some of their stuff use waterproof fabrics. Other companies do it and keep things really light.

My Go To Pack for the Airlines
I've had my pack for quite awhile- 15 or more years. The fit is perfect, holds just the right amount, and since it's yellow/gold, easy to locate.

Great except for the zippers
Too many zippers. Within less than a year, the main-compartment zippers of this pack got jammed and destroyed. I find a drawstring bag more convenient to use in fast-paced situations or when I only have one hand free. Luckily, Osprey will repair it but I'll still be wary about using those zippers 'cause the fabric is thin and slippery and catches very easily on the zipper pulls. I also find the thin nylon ribbon hangup hook thing at the top of the pack to be uncomfortable and rope-burn like when I need to grab the bag with one hand when it's carrying 20 lbs of gear. Not sure why that part of the pack is just a bare bones, unpadded ribbon.

Great Pack, Except for...
This is a terrific pack going up the mountain for a day and then back. The main zipper, however, got repeatedly caught in the supporting material and then finally one day, it got so stuck the only way was to pull on it and of course, it broke. Had to mail it to Cortez for repairs... Not great considering I had the pack for under a year. Have had others for three decades that never happened to. Please address at quality control, guys.

Fantastic Pack for ALL Activities
I've been through thick and thin with this pack. From easy bike commutes to rugged approaches to the crag in the Red River Gorge, this pack has made my life easier. For day use it has enough space for my laptop, notebook, climbing gear for the gym, and will still have space for other gear. For adventure use, it can fit all the snacks you could want, plenty of water, camp shoes, rain gear, a change of clothes and more.

The comfort provided by the adjustable hip straps and form-fitting yet breathable back plate puts all other 20-30L packs to SHAME. There have been times that I've lost my back pack just because I forgot that I had it on my back because it is so comfortable (that could just be a me-derived problem, not a pack-derived problem though). I originally commandeered this pack from my dad when I was in high school as a school bag, and it has lasted me since then (4 years later) after many adventures with only minor holes and abrasions from questionable decisions that I've made (once again, a me-derived problem, not pack-derived). All in all, this pack is a fanTAStic and 12/10 recommend it to you. Yes, you! Get this pack!
