Talon 6 Lumbar

Building on 10 years of iconic design, the next generation of the iconic Talon series is here. Talon 6 features clean, modern design and stunning performance no matter what your adventure. When it comes to the perfect lumbar pack for just the essentials, Talon 6 won't disappoint.

Twin 600ml bottles sit in their compression holsters, ready for quick draw hydration on the go. The StraightJacket™ wings that wrap around the pack to compress your load tightly are great for when walk becomes run. The external bungee is the perfect place for stowing a lightweight jacket and on top of the main compartment you will find a smaller conveniently placed zipped wallet/key pocket. 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. The zipped pockets on each side of the hipbelt allow quick and easy access to smaller items such phone, snacks or GPS. The reflective Talons keep you visible if running on the road.

Talon 6 is built to be lightweight, comfortable, durable and exceptionally versatile. No matter the adventure, Talon has your back.

Overall very nice, but could use a couple of small improvements
This is overall a very nice waist pack, it feels quality made and it's super lightweight. The waterbottles feel a little cheaper than the rest of the pack, but I like the weird shape of them! The bag sits higher than a lot of other waist packs which I like, and it feels nice and secure as long as you haven't packet it too heavy. I would have loved a wider front strap so the weight is destributed over a larger area and I think that could make the pack more comfortable to wear, as I find that I have to tighten it quite a lot in order for it to stay put without boucing around (but when it's pulled tight it sits nicely). One thing I miss on this pack a lot is some kind of extra compression strap that could really tighten things up when you have packed it with very heavy things (think something like the two included waterbottles filled up + 2 ekstra bottles of liquid, a couple of big bags of snacks, a good sized lunch + fruits as well as your usual hiking stuff), it has the two straight jacket compression strings, but these doesn't tighten things that much even on the tighest setting and the two smaller compression strings on either side of the water bottles don't seem to do much for me other than pull the fabric on the padded belt towards the bag and not the other way around, which is what they were intended for and it just doesn't help that much.
So overall a nice bag, especially if you pack on the lighter side, but it needs some improvement in order to acomidate heavier hiking loads.

A super lumbar pack!
I just ordered the new Talon 6 lumbar pack and am very impressed with this product! It was delivered quickly by DPD courier in a few days. It well constructed and roomy. One drawback are the custom made water bottles. The spout closes too easily when drinking from it. Other than that I really like this pack.

4 etoiles parce que la perfection n exite pas
tous mes entraînements ont été fait avec le talon 6
3 grosses courses:
-Trail 42 km idéal
-Trail 80 km passable
-Trail 130 km limite avec les contraintes des équipements obligatoire et de la quantité d eau et de nourriture
les poches de devant devraient être un peu plus grande

Très bon produit mais question sur le confort de portage
Le concept du Talon 6, c'est un peu: prendre le bas d'un petit sac à dos Talon 11, ceux qui se laissent complètement oublier dès lors que l'on attache les ceintures, et le porter tout seul! On emmène deux bouteilles de 600ml (de quoi s'hydrater sur une sortie de 2-3h en course: au delà, prévoir un point d'eau!) et quelques affaires: barres de céréales à grignoter, téléphone, clés, portefeuille, boussole, veste légère... Les bouteilles sont très accessibles avec le sac dans le dos, même pour moi qui ai des bras pas très souples; leur forme effilée peut agacer lors des préparatifs (pas moyen de les poser sur la paillasse de l'évier pour faire sa tambouille isotonique!) mais se justifie pendant la course: on les remet sans aucune difficulté dans leur poche, sans avoir à bouger le sac.

L'amorce de la ceinture sur les côtés du sac forment de petites poches très pratique pour téléphone, boussole, etc. Elles sont reliées par une simple sangle très facilement clipsable, ajustable en charge sans la moindre difficulté. Seule interrogation: pourquoi avoir fait la partie rembourrée (sac+amorce de ceinture) si étroite? Sur le Talon 11, elle fait environ 70cm; là on est à 60cm. Résultat, pour ma morphologie en tout cas, la partie "confortable" s'arrête juste derrière le saillant des hanches et c'est la sangle, voire ses attaches, qui y repose. C'est d'autant plus agaçant qu'il ne faudrait vraiment pas grand chose pour que ce soit parfait!

Great bit of kit, non-leaky bottles and sensible storage capacity for short and medium distance walking.
I bought a Talon 11 recently and was so impressed with it I decided to replace my normal walking hydration back with the Talon 6. My existing pack was a no brand 2 bottles and pouch affair with bottles that always leaked and a pouch that was never really large enough for anything much more than a set of keys.
The Talon 6 hasn’t disappointed being really well made and with bottles which so far haven’t leaked a bit (apart from when I was stupid enough not to have closed the cap on a bottle properly – unfortunately no one can engineer out stupidity on the part of the user !!!). Some reviews point out the odd shape of the bottles and complain you cant stand them up while filling, I haven’t found this to be a problem you just have to be a bit organised if you are filling with any extras like juice or goop to go with the water.
Initially I found the pack to be a bit uncomfortable before realising it needs to ride a bit higher up my body than my old pack, lesson here is you need to play with the packs various straps and adjustments and try moving its position around on your body to get the perfect fit. Once you have it worked out its very comfortable to be carrying around a kilo of weight in water plus whatever else you may want to cram in it. Like the Talon 11 its extremely well made, lightweight and well thought out with plenty of space and sensible design.
My only minor criticism of it is a personal observation that I would have liked the waist belt to be a bit wider which I think may have made it even more stable and perhaps even more comfortable but that’s just speculation as I am not a human ergonomics engineer.
I need a lot of water when walking and I have found the capacity of the Talon 6 to be about right for my normal daily walks, I don’t really need the huge storage space although I can see for some of my walks the space will be useful when I am carrying a camera and extra water plus food. For myself I just wanted to get a quality bit of kit that’s well made and the Talon 6 has perfectly fulfilled that.
Summing up it’s a great bit of kit, non-leaky bottles, sensible storage capacity for short and medium distance walking or where a lot of kit is not required and speed and lightness are the priority.
