Osprey Talon 33-Litre Backpack
Amazon Price: N/A $129.95 (as of February 28, 2017 6:04 pm –
The most versatile pack in the Talon series, the Talon 33 meets the needs of everyone from expert light and fast backpackers to hardcore do-it-in-a-day alpinists.
The Talon 33 includes stretch mesh harness pockets for snacks and a comfortable BioStretch foam harness. The Talon 33 relies on Osprey's AirScape suspension system to provide comfort to hikers, mountain bikers, and serious runners. Built around a ridge-molded foam back panel with grip mesh covering, the system offers ample ventilation to keep you comfortable throughout the day. The pack's BioStretch adjustable harness and mesh-covered, slotted foam hipbelt, meanwhile, help distribute weight evenly across the body. As a result, the bag won't weigh you down even as the miles stretch into the dozens. The harness includes an adjustable sternum strap with a rescue whistle buckle, while the hipbelt offers a modified ErgoPull closure to ensure a secure fit.
Despite the easy-to-maneuver design, the Talon 33 is spacious enough to carry all your adventure essentials. The pack offers dual zippered panel access to the main compartment, along with a top zippered mesh slash pocket for smaller items. You can also store gear in the spacious stretch-woven front pocket, the dual stretch-woven side pockets (with InsideOut compression), the dual stretch mesh hipbelt pockets, and the sewn-in stretch mesh harness pockets. And hydration is key for any outdoor activity, which is why the Talon 33 offers an easy-access external hydration slot that holds bladders as large as 3 liters (bladders sold separately).
Other features include an ice axe attachment point, an adjustable webbing strap that secures a rope under the lid of the Talon 33, a floating top pocket to keep you organized, a laced bungee cord with fabric wings to keep your extras secure, a LidLock attachment clip for a bike helmet, an integrated blinker light attachment, and a sewn-in tow loop attachment point.
Dimensions: 10 by 24 by 7 inches (W x H x D) Small/medium: 1,900 cubic inches/31 liters; weighs 1 pound 15 ounces Medium/large: 2,000 cubic inches/33 liters; weighs 2 pounds

One and only daypack – works for everything (inside and out)

This bag may be one of the best investments I have ever made! I use it for everything. It was originally purchased three years ago as a day pack for our hike of the Inca Trail in Peru. I did a lot of research and determined that this would be the best solution. We needed a pack large enough to carry gear for the day and any type of weather. We were not carrying tents or sleeping bags, so we needed a bit less space. My husband was so impressed when it arrived, that he purchased the exact same bag in a large. Since it’s first successful outing, this bag has been our go-to bag for any and all trips. We’ve taken it on airplane flights stuffed full of our daughter’s blankets, toys and DVD player with enough room for our books and light sweaters. It’s gone on car trips packed with clothes and toys. It’s gone on day hikes and picnics with food and blankets. It went to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro stuffed with 3 liters of water, jackets, rain gear, snacks etc. It is a roomy size for a daypack and large enough for a weekend overnighter. The pull tabs are nice as they have rings you can grab even with thick gloves on. The storage pocket on top is great for keys, passports and other items you need in a hurry. The front pocket holds travel folders, books, snacks and sweaters with ease. The drink pockets on the side, like most packs, are useless for water bottles if you are hiking. They fit in, but are difficult to squeeze in if you have the straps down tight and require you to take off your pack to get them back in. They are great for an extra water bottle (as camelbak backup) or for storing snacks, Goo shots, pocket translators, etc. The hip belt is comfy and has never dug uncomfortably into my hip bones. If you tighten the chest strap too tight, it pulls the top straps a bit too close and can rub your clavicals, but keep it loose enough and it is fine. The two hip pockets are super convenient for chapstick, money, candy, etc and are suprisingly large. The load straps are easy to adjust and keep loads (light and heavy) well balanced. It hugs my back and stays put, but also has a very nice air gap that prevents too much sweat. I recommend this bag to anyone and everyone – you will not be disappointed!

(Scotland-Italy-Switzerland-Germany-Turkey) Everything fits, so long as you can do laundry a couple of times.

I used this backpack for week long trips all over the world. Granted I am not like most girls and have to take my whole world with me but this pack is the perfect size to fit a weeks worth of clothes and still be carry on size. Who wants to wait for baggage claim? I love every Osprey backpack I have every owned. They are well built, the colors are great and they fit me which is hard to find as a short woman.
Light, spacious backpack.

Some things are well designed and well put together, and this is one such. This is the second Osprey Talon 33 that I have had, and this one is a bit better than the first; they added a few improvements in the years since the first one was made. If you want a pack of this size, then this is it.
I originally bought this for a trip to Peru, where I would be hiking the Salkantay (alternative nature hike to the Inca trail). They recommended bringing a day pack as we had porters w/ mules carrying a duffle bag with our extra stuff (sleeping bag, extra clothes, extra snacks, and whatever stuff that we didn’t need during the day). My friends bought the talon 22, I was the only one who bought the 33. The 22 seems to be much more popular, I probably saw at least twenty other people on the trail who had one, while I only saw one person with the 33. For the purpose of this trip the size was fine, the people with the 22 also had no problem. The 22 was probably a better size for the trip actually as most of the time my main compartment was never really full, which led to the top pocket sagging down all the way and becoming a little floppy.
It’s really a great backpack for the most part.
I just wish there was a hoop/internal frame to give it a more rigid shape, however, one really huge feature I want to see on this is Osprey’s Airspeed mesh backpanel on this guy. Went on an overnight trip last summer in 86 degree heat and my back was completely DRENCHED after 5 miles. Regular weather I’ll get damp but not dripping. A sleeping bag compartment would’ve been nice too like on the larger 44 series of Talons (yes, I know it’d add to the weight, but this fits all my ultra light gear for a 4 day trip)

The Osprey Talon 33 is the best day pack out there.

I am only 5′ and finding a backpack that fits is not an easy task. This one is perfect – and it is a beautiful shade of PURPLE! Yahoo! We are doing a awesome hike between camps in the Sierras this summer, so I needed something that was bigger than my regular “go out and hike for the day” pack, but do not need to carry a tent and sleeping bag. I love the little zippered pouches in the hip belt – they are perfect for my chapstick, sport beans, Aleve, etc.! Oh, and did I mention it is PURPLE!
Very awesome bag

Perfect for weekend trip. it is small enough to be treated as a carry-on but large enough get most of your stuff inside. a bit small for backpacking.
