Osprey Talon 33
I used this on my Kilimanjaro trip. It was just the perfect design and size

Great product after great service
I have used the older version enthusiastically and found the updated version has more quirky pockets etc which are really handy. It fits comfortably and is light weight, holding enough for a five day walk

I have used this daily as commuting, both running and or cycling. I have also used it while fastpacking. It is an excellent multi-use backpack.

Very good all-round pack
Sized up from the Talon 22, which has done me well for over 4 years of constant use and abuse. This pack gives me all the space I need for work, the gym, and climbing, but it is still light and comfortable.
The hip pockets are made of stronger material on the 33 (the mesh on the 22 tore eventually) and there's a proper lid with inside storage too. Highly adjustable all round although many of the straps are a bit long, but Osprey seem to have abandoned the pull loop style which was a bit annoying on the old 22.
My only real complaint is the flimsy feel of the front drop storage area, as this is where my bike lock goes, but only time will tell. Otherwise excellent quality and well worth it for a light and versatile bag that would do for biking, climbing, hiking and general use.

Light, versatile and very comfy.
I bought this as my day bag and carry on flight luggage, cycle bag and day bag for a trek up Mount Kenya. It was useful and performed well in all of these scenarios. Light enough material so worth taking care in case of it getting close to anything jagged in case of tearing but still performed perfectly. Handy for easy access without having to remove the bag and nice and airy with the netting at the back for hotter days.

Comfortable and lightweight
Very comfortable hipbelt. Versatile can be used for climbing, hiking, mountaineering etc. Pockets on hip-belts are very useful! Note the M/L size has a much longer and more comfortable hipbelt than the S/M - even if your area a small person (or a girl)

Versatile, light and accessible
This light rucksack has a large capacity for its weight. It is usefully divided into pockets and compartments, all of which seem to have a particular purpose. The front waist band pockets are large enough to carry come in handy items and snacks; the water pouch is ideal, and the walking pole carrying loops allow quick access - and discard - and are perfect when on mixed terrain. I am very pleased with this versatile sack.
