Talon 22

Building on 10 years of iconic design, the next generation of the iconic Talon series is here. Talon 22 features clean, modern design and stunning performance no matter what your adventure. When it comes to a perfect all-rounder the Talon 22 won't disappoint, after all it's designed to cling to your back like a frightened monkey.

The cleverly designed new AirScape™ accordion foam backpanel combined with a seamless lumbar-to-hipbelt body wrap increases air flow and provides an even more comfortable carrying experience, by keeping the load close to the body and spreading the weight evenly around the hips.

Talon 22 features an adjustable back length, ensuring the pack fits well to your body and enabling the most comfortable carrying experience. The pack is complete with innovative solutions such as Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole attachment, LidLock™ bike helmet attachment, single ice-axe attachment and InsideOut™ compression straps. The zipped pockets on each side of the hipbelt allow quick and easy access to smaller items such as phone, snacks and GPS. On the top of the pack you will find another conveniently placed pocket, ideal for small items that you need easy access to. On the front of the pack is a large PowerMesh™ pocket, which is ideal for a wet jacket or extra layer of clothing. Keeping hydrated during activity is essential and re-filling your hydration reservoir has been made easy with the quick access external hydration sleeve with reservoir hanging loop.

Talon 22 is compatible with all Hydraulics™ reservoirs and the size Small High Vis Raincover.

Talon 22 is built to be lightweight, comfortable, durable and exceptionally versatile. No matter the adventure, Talon has your back.

Excellent pack
There's nothing not to like. Bought this to do Yorkshire three peaks challenge, and didn't even realise I was wearing a pack for most of the walk, despite it being fully packed. Just absolutely wonderful to wear. I also bought hiviz rain protection as another reviewer--Steven--recommended, but disagree that XS is a better fit. Fully packed, the XS does physically go over the pack, but the drawcord is strained to maximum, which would decrease it's longevity. Even though the 20-35l version is baggier, it is the correct size for this pack. Note that a tight rain protection will eventually allow heavy rain to seep through to the pack but a baggier one will not. I've had several packs over the years, the last one being a Haglöfs Corker day pack, but this is the best one i've ever used.

I recommend XS sized raincover for previous model
I have recently purchased the previous version of the Talon 22, not sure if the update is just cosmetic. I originally purchased a small sized hi-vis raincover (20-35 litre), but found it far too baggy for the Talon 22, there was masses of excess material. I have since changed the cover for the XS (10-20 litre) version which is a much better fit, even with the rucksack well filled. The rucksack itself is great and comfortable to wear.

If there is a better pack out there for hiking I have not found it, this is simply brilliant !

Very comfortable
I love this bag. I can fit about anything I want in it for cycling / walking day trips, its extremely comfortable and very light weight. It has a number of handy pockets and the water pouch part at the back is easy to use and very handy. The best bag I've ever had.

Great pack
This is just a great backpack. Love how it fits my back, allows my back to breathe, the convenient layout, and the looks. Enjoyed it on hikes, bike & horse trips and around the city. Light weight and allows my back to breathe.

An Excellent backpack
Excellent lightweight day pack. You can easily forget you have it on
Surprisingly strong and durable
I like all the extra features and have found I can also quick stow my camera using the walking pole stow system

Sac a dos basic et cher
Je trouve que les finissions du sac (tissus élastique de faible qualité) ne sont pas de très bonne facture mais que le confort est plutôt bon ( très bon dos et système de réglage)

Optimum in dieser Größe
Wer einen Rücksack sucht, der durch eine körpernähe Führung mit ausreichender Ventilation glänzt, ist sehr gut bedient. In der Größe M/L sitzt er bei sportlichen Aktivitäten sowohl bei Männern als auch bei Frauen ab 180cm Körperlänge optimal. Sehr durchdachte Kompressionsriemen und Helmbefestigung. Einsatzgebiet Tagesbergtouren (mit Klettersteig) und Mountain-Biking.
Lediglich auf eine integrierte Regenhülle muss verzichtet werden, daher ein Stern Abwertung.

Brilliant backpack
This is the best backpack I have ever seen. The straps are comfortable and spread the load so well I forget I'm wearing it. The pockets in the waist strap are a work of genius, so simple, and incredibly useful.

My Talon 22.
The best bay sack ever, from Snowdon to Hills around Port Stanley in the Falklands. Strong, water proof and does what it says. Will not buy another day sack.

Il meglio
Zaino perfetto: polivalente, leggero, solido ed incredibilmente versatile. Si ha l'impressione che ogni caratteristica sia stata studiata per massimizzare l'efficienza e la comodità d'uso.
Ho apprezzato in particolare l'aggancio dei bastoncini senza dover togliere lo zaino e la tasca per la sacca di idratazione esterna allo zaino.

Great for lightweight hiking
Love how many pockets it has, the bladder compartment is handy when you need to refill, I would say that it is not advisable to add more weight than is recommended as the straps aren't the comfiest. Also it is 100% not waterproof as Stew Shaw states this is why you buy the rain covers which leads to the next problem. Rain covers that small cannot be attached to the bag so in high winds, say goodbye.

Bellissimo zaino, si vede la cura adoperata in ogni minimo dettaglio ! Ha caratteristiche da zaino da backpacking (come lo schienale regolabile) in una versione da trekking giornaliero, ma la qualità fa sì che possa essere adoperato per più ambiti !

A great pack but a bit small
The Talon 22L a bit small for my hiking needs. It would be better if there was a 25L version for added capacity (the 33L is a bit too big as I only fill it if wild camping or winter hiking). The Talon 22L does have some good features - the mesh back-system is very comfortable, the easy to remove hydration pack (a must for me), even when the pack is full, the sturdy hip belt is comfortable, though the pockets are not waterproof like the rest of the pack, the stretch mesh side pockets are a good size and the compression strap ensures their contents stay secure. These features make this a really good all round very comfortable hiking back pack. At 6'3" tall the M/L size pack sits very comfortably on long 10 mile plus hikes and when scrambling.
What would make this pack better (for me) would be the inclusion of an integrated rain cover and removable stowage straps similar to those that feature on the Stratos series. Just a shame this pack is not available in 25L or maybe Osprey could upgrade the main compartment to 24L.

Best lightweight small(ish) allrounder ever, but ...
I have 3 of these packs: 2x 22l and 1x the bigger one, and I also bought a Tempest for my daughter. I don't know of another company making better packs, or giving better service. (My first Talon 22 wore out after heavy use ... I sent it back during a trip to the US and in a matter of days I had a new one.) However, it seems to me that the elasticized mesh on the outside stuff pocket and also used on the hipbelt pockets is worse than what was used in older models. My first Talon was replaced because it simply wore out, but I never ever had problems with the mesh. Even after maybe 10 years of use? My new T22 is barely more than a year old, and the mesh on the hipbelt pockets and on the back of the pack already has multiple holes. Maybe its lighter, maybe its stretchier, but it's not tough enough, IMHO. Also not sold on some of the features of the bigger talon, but will save that for another time. Fantastic pack!
