Osprey Talon 33 Packis rated4.4286out of5by7.
Rated5out of5byfromsolid performing day and overnight packI bought the pack for day hikes and overnight backpacks. Separate storage of the hydration bladder prevents clogging up the main compartment, and leaves room for all essentials. I found the pack met all my needs.

Rated4out of5byfromCarries wellI purchased this pack for use on day trips and walking the dogs in the desert. I usually carry all the extra stuff for the wife and kids, and the safety essentials. The pack rides exceptionally well, even up to 35 pounds. My only complaint would be that the side mesh pockets are a little small for holding a regular Nalgene bottle, especially when the pack is full. If you are using a smaller water bottle, it will be fine. There is enough adjustability to allow for adjustments for comfort while on the trip. The pockets on the waist belt are really handy for treats and poop bags when we don't have the leashes with us. This pack could handle a one night minimalist trip, but would be a stretch for anything beyond that. If you are looking for a day hike pack that rides well and won't feel like a burden, this is a good choice.

Rated3out of5byfromLove everything -- except the frameI love every bit of this pack, from design to style. EXCEPT, one huge issue. The foam/plastic back of the frame became horribly deformed within the first week of use (I use the pack daily at work). The slight lumbar support became an unbearable bulge, like a slouchy, torturous piece of junk. No matter the adjustment, the lumbar was completely too bulgy, with the top half of the pack standing 4-5 inches away from my back and the lower half pressing hard into me. My coworker had the same pack and had to put aluminum stays in it to make it more bearable for him. Eventually he gave up and returned his. I would definitely by a similar pack with the light aluminum frame, but this frame is very poorly designed.

Rated5out of5byfromA keeperI recommend this bag over others in the Osprey line for the simple fact that it comes with a bladder -- no separate purchase necessary. One design feature that I don't get: the bladder valve does not have a dedicated channel in the rear of the bag (at least not one I can see -- please correct me if I'm wrong here). The bladder is inserted in the back, and the enclosing pouch remains unzipped for valve access. Compare this with the Osprey 10L bullet bag: there is a dedicated hole to thread the valve.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat pack!Although I've only used this pack once so far on a hike I hardly felt it on my back. Very comfortable! Could probably carry enough gear for a light overnite trek.

Rated5out of5byfromGlad I upgradedThe Talon 33 is an awesome pack. I had the Stratos 24 with the airspeed back and it was nice for hiking, but seemed to always be just a little too small and the rigid frame made sitting on ski lifts slightly annoying. I love the new talon pack. It's comfortable, durable, and the perfect size for almost any activities. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again, I love all my osprey packs.
