What is the Talon 22?

The iconic Osprey Talon 22 is a lean, clean and lightweight all-rounder with fantastic comfort and ventilation. The Talon 22 is the perfect do-it-all pack for all your outdoor adventures and is equally at home on the daily commute. No matter how extreme your activity the Talon will cling to your back like a frightened monkey leaving you free to concentrate on having fun.

What is it made of?

A 70 x 100D Nylon construction means not only will this pack supply you with almost every feature known to a pack, it'll last years of abuse, whatever the activity. This tough outer fabric also features a durable water repellent coating to resist light showers if you happen to get caught out. If you're walking in terrential rain then we'd recommend the use of drybags which you can find here

What are the features?

This mid sized pack has a zipped front panel access so you can get at your kit quickly and easily and features the clever LidLock system to stash a bike helmet. Hydration access is simple and quick, while an external sleeve lets you whip out your bladder for re-filling without having to enter the main compartment. Despite its minimal weight the Talon 22 does not scrimp on features with twin zipped hip belt pockets, stretch side pockets, stretch front pocket, stretch pocket on harness, an internal key attachment clip, an LED attachment point, an ice axe loop, a sternum strap mounted whistle and the brilliant Stow-on-the-go trekking pole attachment system. 

What is the backsystem?

Building on the success of the previous generation Talon, this latest generation version incorporates an entirely new and redesigned back system. Technology from Osprey's larger and heavier weight packs has been applied but in a much more minimalist way. The hip belt features seamless lumbar support and wraps around the body tightly and securely. The fabrics have also been updated, with a more breathable mesh covered accordion foam being used throughout the back and hips. The new shape of the back panel allows more air to flow through and reduces the overall contact between your back and the pack. All Talon packs sit close to your back for stability and security yet still breathe superbly. Because the Talon 22 does not have a rigid frame it can easily be stashed in your luggage for use as a lightweight spare pack when travelling. Lastly, the shoulder harness and hip belt are made with BioStretch materials and die cut EVA foam and stretch fabrics move with your body for un-restricted movement when running or climbing.

Summary

The legendary Talon is the perfect choice for those who dabble in a little bit of everything. Walking, biking, climbing, running, the Talon will do it all comfortably and effectively with minimal fuss.

Care & Advice

Getting the correct fit for your rucksack is as important as getting the fit right for your boots. A badly fitting pack can inflict misery and discomfort and completely ruin your adventure. This guide is designed to help you get the best fit and comfort from your chosen pack so that carrying all your kit becomes a pleasure and not a chore.

ADJUSTING THE BACK LENGTH

If the pack has an adjustable back length, adjust this to your correct level. Your back length is not related to your height but your torso length. Many packs, and specifically the bigger and more technical packs are available in different back lengths or feature adjustable back systems. Contrary to popular belief, your torso length and not your overall height is the key to getting a well fitted pack. Tall people don’t necessarily have long torsos, just as shorter people don’t always have a short torso length.

Your torso length can be found by measuring from your C7 vertebra (the bony protrusion at the back of your neck when looking down) to the height of your iliac crest (top of your hip bones, where you put your hands on your hips). This measurement will give you an idea of which pack back length to choose.

Once you've got the back length sorted, either by selecting the correct size pack or adjusting the back system, you can begin to follow these simple steps to help achieve a comfortable carry.

LOOSEN OFF ALL STRAPS

Before you start fitting the pack, loosen off all the straps as this will make it easier to get the correct tension later.

TIGHTENING THE HIPBELT

Fasten the backpack hipbelt, the general position is the same as where you’d put your ‘hands on hips’ This area is called the pelvic girdle, and what you can feel when you rest your hand on the area is the bony protuberance, the iliac crest. The iliac crest can support the weight from a pack comfortably, and for sustained periods. The padded section of the hipbelt should encompass this and fit securely.

Tighten the straps so the hipbelt feels secure and held firmly around your body. Ensure that the lumbar pad is centered to your lower back to give you maximum support. Remember that your hips carry most of the weight of the pack, so this should be firm but comfortable.

ADJUSTING THE SHOULDER STRAPS

Next, adjust the shoulder straps, pull them until they start to become snug, but ensure that they are not too tight as to lift the pack off your hips. Remember tightening them will stabilise the pack but will increase pressure over the shoulders. If the back length of the pack is correct the shoulder straps will be flush to your shoulders whilst the hipbelt sits in place comfortably. The point where the shoulder straps attach to the main body of the pack should be roughly half way down your shoulder blades; this ensures  that the shoulder straps rolls evenly over the top of your shoulders to distribute the weight correctly.

FASTENING THE CHEST STRAP

Fasten the chest strap and pull until taut but not tight, the elastic section should not be extended. This helps keep the shoulder straps from catching in your shoulder joints and keeps the stability of the pack when moving over rough ground.

ADJUSTING THE TOP TENSIONERS

Top tensioner straps link the shoulder straps to the top of the pack. When tightened, their main function is to stabilise the top part of the pack. The optimum angle for these straps in 45º, but they will stabilise the load even when horizontal or at a more obtuse angle. Tighten them until you feel the top part of the pack rest against your pack, over tightening them will create excessive pressure on the front of your shoulders.

ADJUSTING THE SIDE TENSIONERS

Side tension straps are linked to the hipbelt. By tightening these straps you can stabilise the load but reduce the hipbelt flexibility. Where balance is critical tightening them can help you feel more secure. However, if you are striding out over easy terrain it’s better to loosen these straps to allow full hip flexibility.

ADJUSTING THE SIDE COMPRESSION STRAPS

Side compression straps come next, pulling these tight does two things: firstly, it stabilises the load, secondly it can lift the lower part of the pack, repositioning the load closer to your back.

ADJUSTMENTS ON THE GO

Following these steps should give you a comfortable but secure fit on your pack. Sometimes adjustments will need to be made on the go depending on the terrain or the load you are carrying. The perfect fit is very much a personal preference so experiment with different tensions on the pack to find what suits you best.

    Great day pack. Suspension system is fantastic and as a result its a very comfortable back pack. Feels bigger than its 22 litres and so offers plenty of storage. One of the best day packs currently available and offered at a competitive price by Trekitt.

    Absolutely brilliant. My first Osprey pack. After looking enviously at friends versions I finally took the plunge and Im very happy I did. Totally comfortable all day long. Lightweight and all mod cons you could ask for. I have swapped from a heavier pack with a back vent and can honestly say I didnt miss it. The comfort far outweighs the venting. Definitely recommended. My only slight niggle would be that stash pocket on front shoulder strap isnt big enough for a phone or Gps, which would have been perfect position for it. Still worth 5 stars though.

    Fantastic pack. Most comfortable Ive ever had. I thought Osprey were a little pricey, but now I have one, the price is more than warranted. So, so comfortable. Fits like a glove and every extra or attachment you could ask for. Wish Id bought it sooner.

The product I bought was competitively priced. The video demonstration of the product assisted me in my decision to purchase the item and was very informative, as it showed all of the features and the fit. I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
