Talon 11 (Black)
Very impressed with this lightweight backpack. The design and quality is exceptional. I've bought this solely for mountain biking, and so far it has proved to be very comfortable and durable.
This is exactly what I need for trail riding! There's plenty of storage space and pockets for all my kit. Overall, a brilliant piece of kit which I would highly recommend.
Great little pack
I use this for snowboarding, it is the perfect size to stash a couple of spare pairs of gloves, sunglasses, balaclava, an extra layer (e.g. primaloft gilet) , some snacks, first aid kit etc. with a 500ml bottle of water on the outside. The pockets on the hip belt are great for lip balm, tissues, piste maps and sweets. Very comfy, you don't even notice it's there when snowboarding and its slim profile means you can ride a chairlift without taking it off.
brought the escapist 20 which i found to big for me , so purchased the talon 11 which is ideal fore me , big enough to keep my spare heart controller and batteries in plus all my other bits and piece's and a pack lunch too , i deal for my jaunts up and back to hospital until i get my transplant. will be good to for when i can get back out on my mountain bike. over all a well made day pack. interesting to see if it will hold the 1.5l bladder as well.
Good little rucksack for daily commute
Great rucksack for the daily commute, fits my laptop, phones, wallet and waterproof coat. £50 for it the only thing that lets it down is you dont get a rain cover with it, for the price it should come with a rain cover.
Problem with main zip catching the cover material
Love the look and design of this bag particularly for cycling, a good size and plenty of adjustments. Problem is the zippers both catch on the material at the top of the bag almost every time it is opened and then takes five minutes to prize the zipper free and close it again. No obvious fault in the manufacture just poor alignment of the zip with the water cover. Shame cos other wise I love it.
Disappointing - avoid if you are looking for comfort
I really want to like this bag but it’s just not fit for purpose. The bag looks great, really nice and seems to have a feature for everything but they have missed the point big time.
I bought this bag for day hikes, short runs and cycles (less than 1hr). The issues is that the way they have constructed the bag, they have made the bag long and thin which is not an issues. However they have made the back of the pack out of a hard sheet of plastic and glued strips of foam to it. As the bag is thin the edges of this plastic sit around the area where your shoulder blades protrude. Even just standing with this bag is uncomfortable, I tested it and I’ve sent it back.
This was replacing a 8L hydration pack I had which cost £10 and is way more comfortable. You pay a premium price but get a poorly designed product. I think you are paying for the label
Genial tout simplement
Tres bon sac contenance,ergonomie utilise pour la rabdonnée, le trail, le ski Que du bongeur.
Je vous le conseille, vous ne serez pas déçu.
Good quality but tiny...why can’t you just give us the exact measurements without requiring the stupid app?
I bough this rucksack as I enjoy walking and wanted a small rucksack to carry a few items whilst I walk...I wanted a small capacity rucksack so thought 11L would be ideal...and the volume is...but the rest of the rucksack is so small...it’s so short it comes halfway up my back! Us British people have a term for this...Pimple on a rock! Better sizing information on the website would be nice, the app clearly doesn’t work properly as it suggests back packs that are far too small. Why is it so hard to find the difference in size between small / medium and medium/large? Seems a simple question...clearly the volume is still 11L but the pack must be larger in length or something...why not just state that on the website and give us better information?
Looks good but far too small
Have admired the osprey packs for a while and was due to go on a weekends hiking in Italy so thought I would replace my old worn bag. I used the size checker app and it recommended s/m which I thought odd but believed it anyway, I'm not a particularly tall guy at 5'9". This arrived the day before I was due to fly so grabbed it and went. I paid the price for it. The bag is tiny. It feels like when I use one of my kids' bags. There's barely much left in the shoulder straps once loosened enough, the waist belt is nowhere near where it's meant to be and sits at the lower end of my sternum. This strap didn't get used as I could only fasten it by breathing in. The waist belt pockets are in turn unusable because they are so compressed and too far to the rear I cannot reach them. I'm not a marathon runner admittedly but nor am I a sumo wrestler. There's not an abundance of outdoor shops where I live so use online shops but I suffered this time by not trying out different packs. I struggle to see how much better the next size up for me would be, this would fit my 11 year old daughter.
It looks like it would be really good but I just found it unworkable. It got abondoned when I came back and hasn't been used since. Disappointed.
