Osprey Talon 44-Litre Backpack
Amazon Price: N/A (as of December 5, 2016 12:33 am –
Osprey's lightest multi-day backpack, the Talon 44 carries everything you need for overnighters, thru-hiking, climbing, and cragging.
The Talon 44 includes stretch mesh harness pockets for snacks and a comfortable BioStretch foam harness. The Talon 44 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. And to keep your load from becoming unwieldy, the pack includes an aluminum rail structure with composite side struts.
Despite the easy-to-maneuver design, the Talon 44 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 44 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 44, 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, zippered sleeping bag access, and a sewn-in tow loop attachment point.
Dimensions: 10 by 27 by 8 inches (W x H x D) Small/medium: 2,600 cubic inches/42 liters; weighs 2 pounds 6 ounces Medium/large: 2,700 cubic inches/44 liters; weighs 2 pounds 10 ounces

Great Middleweight Pack

Purchased the large, meteorite model pack for dayhiking, overnight hikes with shelters, and airplane travel. So far, it has worked well in every capacity.
Perfect size/weight for doing the Camino de Santiago
5 people found this helpful.
I bought this pack to do the Camino because my backpack was too big and my day pack was too small. It was the perfect size and weight. My pack weighted 9.6 kilograms including 2 liters of water. I am tall, 6 foot 4 inches, and I was able to get the waist belt onto my hips. The bottom access zipper was very handy for quickly getting to something at the bottom of my pack. The outside mesh pocket was large enough to carry all my rain gear. The lid pocket was large enough to carry quite a bit of stuff that I wanted easy access to. The shoulder straps were very comfortable. Overall, I was extremely pleased with the pack.
Light weight and roomy

I chose this pack to hike the Camino De Santiago in May of 2014. As I use it in my workout hikes building up too my actual trip I am finding that the pack is very comfortable and has plenty of space for the gear I will use for the 33 day hike. With plenty of adjustments that pack can be made to fit comfortably and still carry a 20lb load. Pros: Light weight and adjustable. Cons: Access to water bottle and the waist belt could be a little sturdier.
Ive only had this pack out once so far but it was the most comfortable pack that i have ever used in my life. My total pack weight with this pack for a week was only 24lbs 4oz thats including food and water. This pack weighs just over 2lbs while my old pack weighed a wapping 12lbs alone!! The trampoline mesh backing is so comfortable. Beets the pants off of fome pads that most packs have. Its a rucksack style meaning that its like a tube but unlike most rucksacks it has a light frame on the inside. It also has much studier materials then the slightly lighter Exos which i have used and liked a lot less then the Talon!
Great bag smaller than I thought

I bought this bag a little naive on the cubic inch measurements. I thought it would be bigger. It is a great bag, just not the size I was looking for. I encourage you to go to a store and examine in person and then come to Amazon.
perfect for girls
i got this for a gf of mine and its amazing. extremely comfortable. when it got too heavy for her to carry i carried it on my frontside (with my pack on the back) and it was still comfortable. the suspension system is great. durable.
It’s hard to beat Osprey’s quality and design!
Osprey is hands down my favorite brand of backpacks. They make packs that just make sense. The talon is super light and unbelievably comfortable. I am more of an ultralight backpacker, but have even used this pack recently for carrying my climbing gear. Its a simplistic pack, and that’s what I love about it. I reccomend this for anyone looking for a lighter weight, super functional pack.
Really like osprey backs and the way they stand up. This one was perfect for a 2-week trip to Paris and throughout England. Worked great as a carry-on, superb weight distribution, and would even be interested in one just a bit bigger…except that would mean it would be heavier and wouldn’t work as a carry-on.
Great Travel Pack
This pack has great capacity while still staying compact. It fits perfectly under the seat on the plane or in the overhead compartment. You can pack plenty of clothes and essentials and has tons of pockets and do dads for accessories and camping supplies.
