Our Thoughts

Although the Osprey Talon is the perfect back for adventure travel, day camping, or hiking, there is no reason you can't one bag with it or take it on a backpacking trip.

The bag looks great and has the typical sleek and stylish Osprey look. Black bags stink, literally, in the sun and heat and the Talon comes in some nice colors.

The Talon, being a hiking/camping backpack has excellent water and rain protection. The top of the bag has a unique rainproof cover to prevent vertical flows of water from getting in the bag. The fibers itself are a nylon fiber that will keep your belongings dry.

In addition to keeping you dry, the bag also keeps you hydrated. The Talon comes with an external hydration sleeve that you can access from outside the pack.

If you are doing more "digital nomad" style travel, whereas you spend a lot of time in one place, the Talon could be a bit too much. But if you are an adventure traveling, with a lot of walking on hot sunny days, then the Talon will be perfect for you.

Online reviews indicate the bag is exceptionally comfortable to wear for long periods. Osprey puts a lot of effort into making their bags comfortable, and your body will thank you after lugging the bag around for miles.

*Sizes for the small size.

πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "The Talon 33 has good hiking pole holders--an Osprey design that's still somewhat exclusive to them. There is an adjustable back plate to accommodate different torso sizes. Osprey's Airscape ventilated back is a great system for keeping air moving behind the pack."
  • "I use this pack for day hikes and a small overnight hike and it is very useful. It has a large enough compartment for gear without being too bulky."

"At 33 liters, it’s a roomy day pack that can hold anything you need to bring on the trails. It also makes for a great commuter bag since it has a roomy compartment and pockets for organizing your work, gym, and personal belongings, yet it doesn’t have a metal frame or other bulky features."
