The iconic Osprey Talon 33 was developed for the long distance endurance user who demands the best performing kit when out for multi-day adventures or backpacking. This light weight load lugger provides fantastic comfort and ventilation thanks to the Airscape back panel and BioStretch harness.

This generously sized pack has twin buckle top lid access that also serves to compress the pack if you're carrying less stuff. 

Building on the success of the third generation talon, this fourth generation version incorporates an entirely new and redesigned back system. Technology from Osprey's larger and heavier weight packs has been applied with the Talon range, but still maintaining the lightweight and compact characteristics of the old pack. 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 33 does not have a rigid frame it moulds to your shape distributing the weight evenly across shoulders and hips.

The shoulder harness and hip belt are made with BioStretch materials, die cut EVA foam and stretch fabrics move with your body for un-restricted movement when scrambling, climbing and trekking. Hydration access is simple and quick, an external sleeve lets you whip out your bladder for re-filling without having to enter the main compartment. Despite its light weight the Talon 33 does not scrimp on features with twin zipped hip belt pockets, stretch side pockets, stretch front pocket, stretch pocket on harness and the brilliant Stow-on-the-go trekking pole attachment system. 

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.

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.

    Osprey Talon 33 Black ,  On

    Superb pack, extremely comfortable to wear, perfect for day-long hikes. The features of this pack are excellent, from the handy pockets on the hip belts, to the stow on the go system for walking poles (which works well to keep the poles out of the way of your swinging arms). I have a Camelbak hydration bladder as part of a biking backpack, and it fits perfectly well within the hydration pocket of this pack. This is a high quality product, and will last for years.

    Osprey Talon 33 Black ,  On

    The Osprey name speaks for itself quite rightly so. The lack of weight concerned me, unduly, this bag is as strong as any Ive owned previously, if not more. Highly recommended.

    Osprey Talon 33 Black ,  On

    Water resistant, stores a camelbak, carries hiking poles, fits in airline cabin bag limits, keeps the weight off my traps - ticks all my boxes. I chose the 31L S/M bag on account on my short back and it is perfect. Travelled on a holiday for a week with this half full and it fitted everything I needed and was perfectly comfortable to walk around with all day. We shall see if it stands the test of time and wear/tear but I must say I love it a little bit already.

Thanks for choosing this item ...

Osprey Talon 33 Black

Would you like to see the special offer we have for you?

 

   

The whole ordering and delivery process went very smoothly but unfortunately the boots I had ordered were slightly too narrow and had to be returned, the no quibbles returns process was quick and easy, with Trekitt keeping me informed by email at every step of the way, including receipt of my parcel and when my refund had been processed. Service and communication with this company always excellent.
