Talon 33

Copied. Never equalled. Building on 10 years of design, the next generation of the iconic Talon series is here. Talon 33 features clean, modern design and stunning performance no matter what your adventure. Talon 33 is a versatile pack, designed as a true mountain professional and featuring all you could need for long days outdoors.

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 33 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, twin ice-axe attachments 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 top of the lid you will find another conveniently placed pocket, ideal for gloves, hat, map or other 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 33 is compatible with all Hydraulics™ reservoirs and the size Small High Vis Raincover.

Talon 33 is built to be lightweight, comfortable, durable and exceptionally versatile. No matter the adventure, Talon has your back.

Very good as expected.
A very good back pack that fits in between my other Ospreys. However, the compartment for the water tank collect and traps water. Would be a good idea to make a drain in future bags.

Just perfect
Just completed the Camino de Santiago with the Talon 33. 7 days on the trail carrying 11kg of kit. The pack easily swallowed up; 2 pairs of shorts, 2 pairs of leggings, 4x T Shirts, spare socks and liners, sandals, wash kit, 2x lightweight towels, sleeping bag liner, spare trail scarf, small camera, knick-knacks, energy bars plus 2x 1 Litre water bottles and a 2 Litre Osprey bladder plus some odds and ends. No idea why people say this is a day pack - I cant imagine what they would need for a day. My Talon 11 is my day pack and I usually take a jet boiler in that !!! People often say the Talon packs should have a rain cover but I think they are missing the point – the Talons are a super lightweight pack for people who are moving fast and light. I find rain covers pretty useless most of the time as the rain gets down the back of any pack and gets into the gear. I only use a rain cover for day hiking when I am not carrying any critical gear – for duration/distance I prefer dry bags inside the pack which also helps to keep the gear organised and structured with different colour dry bags indicating what’s inside (dirty gear, clean gear, critical gear etc.). People also often moan about top loading drawstring type packs but if you pack sensibly with inner bags it makes perfect sense to have the pack operate like this. At your destination you just whip out all the inner bags, select what you want and then repack the rest.
I picked the Talon 33 for the Camino because it’s the maximum size you can get away with for carry-on baggage (yes I know people get away with bigger packs but airlines can refuse and be picky about such things on the day) and I knew from my other Talon packs that these would be lightweight and durable. Personally I would have preferred a framed pack for this trip and would have liked one of Ospreys AG packs but didn’t want to risk it ending up in the hold and having its frame busted - I did discuss it with Ospreys customer service advisors and they gave good advice on this – great service again from Osprey.
The Talon 33 was great – it was as comfy as anything can be with 11kg inside it, didn’t make my back too sweaty although your bound to sweat a bit in 30’ of heat when your covering miles– like my Talon 11 it dried out super fast at rest stops. It did all I wanted of it – carried all my gear with reasonable comfort and after a week out on the trail it still looks brand new. The top of the pack has a neat zipped storage space which holds an amazing amount of gear and its perfect for the stuff you need to access fast and frequently. Its got nice sleek lines and was able to carry everything inside the pack nice and securely. My only minor quibble was the compression straps that wrap around the lower edge tend to snag and need a bit of messing with to get them tight and snug. Few bits of kit are ever perfect but the Talon 33 is as good a bit of kit as I have used so far – it looks good and works well, like all Osprey kit it looks ludicrously fragile bit is actually as tough as old boots and its super lightweight – once its on and tight it moves with you very well like a shell and doesn’t exhibit any tendency to shift about and risk putting you off balance. Thanks Osprey for a great product.

it's hard to access the bottom things inside of the backpack
Being narrow, it's hard to access the bottom things inside of the backpack. You have to organize things well from the inside so you will not have trouble accessing them when you are on the road.
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hi,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Talon 33.

We are sorry to hear that you have found it hard to access items at the bottom of your pack. We would recommend following our How to Pack your Pack guide, which is great for helping to organise your pack efficiently.

One of the best
After using the Talon 33 for around three years I thought I should leave a short review. This is simply one of the best packs out there. I've used this mostly on day treks in Scotland, bagging many munros with this on my back. At first the lightweight nature of the material and small clips was a little concerning and durability questionable, but after three years of mountainous scrambling, scree slides and forest trails I have one tiny hole on the front mesh. This pack is extremely durable and has stood up amazingly well at everything I've thrown at it. The airscape panel provides great ventilation and I've never had issues with sweat or hot spots on my back. For day trips one large opening at the top of the bag is all you really need. Items you might need to get to quickly can be stored in the top lid, hip straps, side stretchy pockets or shoulder strap pocket.

I have stretched this to an overnighter on a few occasions, carrying about 10-11kg including tent, food and water. It honestly wasn't that comfortable and I had some shoulder pain the next day after some strenuous hill walking. This is probably taking the pack past it's comfort zone. There is minimal padding on the shoulders and hips - if you plan on carrying around 10kg or more definitely consider a bigger pack with added comfort.

All that said as a day pack for the mountains it's fantastic. Very light, durable, practical and capable of carrying plenty gear for the day. Stow on the go attachment for waking poles is a great idea with no need to take the bag off. Really cannot fault this bag and have purchased another Osprey for those camping overnighters.

Incredible Pack - more than just a day pack: 450km Camino de Santiago!
I am the proud owner of the Talon 22 and Talon 33 backpacks. These are by far the best packs I have ever used, and in all of my research (religiously visiting outdoor-shops, on the road talking to other adventurers, etc.) I have yet to find a backpack as versatile, lightweight and super-comfy as the Talon series. These packs are extremely light, they really hug your body, and no matter how heavy the load - you barely notice them. The pack moves with you and just feels great. They have plenty of storage space, pockets, connection-points, whatever.

Almost every review or video you find on the web say something along the lines of "this pack is great for those day trips, blah". I don't know what everyone else is carrying, but I managed to get everything I needed packed into the Talon 33 for a 3-week 450 kilometer hike through the north of Spain on the Camino de Santiago. In total, my backpack including everything in it came in at a modest 4,5 Kilos… And this was with 3 Pairs each of Polo Shirts, Hiking Shorts, Socks & Undies, then all of my toiletries, extra pair of "relief"-shoes, slieeping bag, towel, "utensils", first-aid, flashlight, warm layer, waterproof jacket, you name it. I even had enough space left for the occasional Bocadillo, some fruits and veggies, a can of beer or bottle of wine. Many people saw my “tiny” pack and couldn’t believe I had everything I needed.

Also, I often hear people complaining that this pack has no rain-cover included. I don't see the big deal. I pack everything inside with dry bags anyhow. This works wonderfully for structuring, and it keeps your stuff safe from the elements. This pack dries so quickly that a stint through the downpour will be soon forgotten if you pack right. I also own an Osprey Dry-Bag 30l which I used as a Pack-Liner instead of a Rain-Cover on the Camino. Everything inside my pack was not only completely secure from the elements: I also hung my Backpack every evening somewhere to avoid bed-bugs and other critters. Nothing got in ;-)

All in all, highly recommendable! My only 2 small gripes:
1) The previous version of this pack could not hold its shape, and stuff just kind of sagged and bunched at the bottom - leaving the lid to sadly droop over an somewhat "empty" top-portion. I am hoping this has been improved in the latest version (which I intend to get!)
2) The hip-belt webbing was way to short, whereby the webbing for the top lid is way too long and leaves you with a lot of dangling ends

But once again: I would highly recommend this pack and will definitely get the latest version.

Buen Camino!

Perfect pack for smaller loads
Bought this to encourage me to take what I need for 3 seasons backpacking, rather than what I think I need. I can pack into this little rucksack my 2 man MSR tent (ncluding footprint AND a cut down picnic blanket for the interior (I like a carpet!), sleeping mattress, sleeping bag, pillow, cooking set, first aid kit, spare clothes, emergency rations and a number of other small items (including my luxury, a portable radio!) and still have room in the top to stuff food for my evening meal. I'm carrying 7kg or so and the rucksack fits beautifully and is a joy to carry. Thanks Osprey, I love my rucksack! Bentley, UK

Great bag
I used the bag for my three weeks trip through Norway and Sweden. With 8kg it was very good to carry and I was absolutely satisfied. It is also very good for day trips in the alps.

Waist and Sternum Strap
i bought this for a trip to Portugal and Spain to walk an average of 25 km per day over 14 consecutive days. The pack was light and a good carry. My complaints are 1) the waist strap is too short and too narrow. It cannot be fastened closed when wearing a wicking layer, 3 season fleece and gore-tax waterproof jacket. In addition it is too narrow and becomes uncomfortable in extended use. The sternum srap is far too narrow and digs into the chest. For these reasons I have marked it down.
Osprey Customer Service, 

Hello,

Thank you for your review.

We make the Talon to be a versatile pack that can be used for a number of different activities, because of this, the pack, hipbelt and sternum strap are narrow to keep the pack as lightweight as possible. However, we have supplied hipbelt extensions in the past to customers who require them.

If you would like to request a hipbelt extension please contact our Guarantee Team here and if you have any more questions or require any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.

Regards,

Osprey Web Customer Service
