Osprey Talon 22
Used for 1st time on 12 mile hike. So comfortable, weight was evenly distributed. Great that the range has different sizes so suits a smaller female frame.

Purchased for skiing
Excellent backback which stood up excellently to my back country mshaps. No problem carrying all our stuff and the water skin was brill for drinking on the move, no more water bottles. This bag was so comfortable i didnt know i had it on even when full.

The product is amazing. It is lightweight, efficient as regards space and fits very well. it is robust and strong.
My duaghter bought me the Oasprey Tallon 22 for Christmas.
I do a bit of hiking and she felt I needed a proper knapsack for my varoius adventures.
I have just completed my third "Art O@Neill Challenge" this weekend. This is a walk from Dublin Castle in the City Centre to Glenmalure in the Wicklow mountains, a distance over 55km. The walk commenced at midnight and finished the following day in the heart of the Wicklow mountains at 15.15hrs.
I had used a 35 litre knapsack in the past but the Osprey Tallon was perfect for my needs.
I managed to fit in a change of outer gear, waterpfoofs, enough food and drinks as well as the required safety items.
The space in the bag was very well designed so I could put various items in their proper place and have good access as I walked.
There was excellent access to my drinks bottles as well as food in the rear compartment.
The bag is lightweight, robust and fits exceptionally well on my back.
When the clasps are tightened one would hardly notice the bag on ones back.
I have over the years tried different models but this one is the bst I've had and on Saturday when I returned home after the trek of 55km the first thing I did was tell my daughter that the new bag was the best Christmas gift I received in many a long year.
I'm delighted with the product and have showed it to a few of my fellow hikers in recent weeks.
keep upthe good work.

My everyday pack and mountain day pack of choice
I own a variety of packs, a good number of which are made by Osprey. Osprey is my go to choice of pack because they fit well, carry load exceptional, have superb features (the trekking pole attachments are awesome) and are lightweight. They are at the forefront of pack innovation and never has one failed me.

A very applied not clumsy rucksack amazing light weight but strong. Lots of pockets to separate
Good light strong bag
Supportive comfortable straps give body hugging mass transfer.
The ventilation gap controls the air around the body well.
The sips given good strong toggles good to help find.
So many useful pockets a joy to use.

Versatile for a lot of activities
I've been looking for a day rucksack for over a year now, for something that can cater for all of the following and more
its very adjustable, I was particularly impressed by the different sizes to suit different heights of trunks within customers, and the comfort level when using it. It has a big puch for a camelbak, which links to a fastening elastic so it doesn't flap around, a bike helmet clip, ice axe loops, 2 waist pockets, and 2 pouches for water bottles, plus a zip section for valuables, and another one for storing gopro / mobile phone in a soft fleece inside cover.
All in all its a great rucksack!!
