Osprey Peripheral Frame
Peripheral frame was a departure from the norm many years ago and it’s still the foundation of our gear hauling packs. A wire frame runs along the outside of the backpanel directly connecting the upper load lifters and the central core of the pack to the hipbelt to transition and spread the load. Allowing natural torsional movement, effective adjustable torsos, and different load range and backpanel builds makes this suspension design truly innovative.

Best backpack everThis is not the first backpack I have owned. I kept giving them away until I found this Osprey Talon. I bought this pack years ago and still love it. I'm a 5'3 female and this pack fits me better than any other. I can carry everything I need for day trips or for longer journeys. I also use it as a "suitcase" when travelling by automobile and get a kick out of walking into a hotel with it on my back. I like all the ways to carry outside the pack and use them. The only thing that puzzles me about the pack is the big flat stretch pocket - I have not found much use for it. I am nearly 70 years old and think this is the only pack I could carry loaded (often just over 30 pounds) and be able to go anywhere.

Best daypack/light backpack ever madeI bought this pack probably 7 years ago as a daypack. I've used it on numerous day trips, as an airline carry-on with photo gear inside, and am now using it as a backpack. To celebrate my 75th birthday I'm doing a solo four day three night backpack trip in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wildnerness area. In the past I've used a 50 liter backpack for backpacking but wanted to cut down on weight as much as possible. I found that by using compression sutff sacks I can easily get my small tent, sleeping bag, Exped air mattress and everything else I need and want inside or in the outside pockets and keep the weight under 30 pounds. Fully loaded it's very comfortable, actually more so than my much bigger backpack. And why is someone is complaining about needing to take it off to get to their water bottle? Mine has a pocket that holds a 2 liter hydration bladder. If I was doing a longer trip, I'd want the 44 liter size but for 3-5 days, 33 liters is plenty.

Osprey Mens's Talon 33 Pack[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Since purchasing the Talon 33 I have used it on two separate occasions totaling 15 miles. Both times, it was a day hike and packed very lightly ( 10 lbs or less). The comfort of the pack was outstanding. I had no issues in adjusting the pack too fit me. Too early to mention durability but, in a visual observation it appears to be very well made. I see this size pack ( 33L) as being used primarily as a day pack however, if used in warmer climate where you did not need to pack a great deal of shelter or sleeping system you could probably stretch it into 2-3 day overnight hike.

Great pack![This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this as a bigger day pack. I already own the Esteban, but wanted a slightly bigger pack that had a place for my water bladder. I love that the bladder doesn't go in the main compartment. Definitely a space saver. I can pack my bladder, some fishing equipment, and some other misc. items and with the frame and construction, it feels lighter than if I were carrying less in my Esteban. Not too big for a day hike, and big enough for an overnight-er/weekend. Looking forward to taking this to Mount Washington this weekend and hiking through Scotland next month!

Great Day Hike or Overnight PackI now have several hundred miles on my Talon 33 and feel like I now know it well enough to comment on it. I use it mainly for 4-season day hikes and the occasional summer overnight. The pack is extremely comfortable and loads easily. I like the minimalist design and light weight. If you need lots of pockets for organization, this isn't your pack. For day hikes, I often use a hydration bladder. For overnight, water bottles in the exterior pockets. The pack works great in either mode, but pulling a water bottle out of the exterior pocket on the go is very difficult. Replacing it is even more difficult. There are times when I would like at least one of the pockets canted forward to ease access to a water bottle. And then I wouldn't want this if I'm carrying tent poles or a sit pad in the pocket. Go figure. I love my pack and heartily recommend it to anyone who is looking at ambitious 4-season day hiking. All the rest of my comments are nits that I have come to discover over the last year and am just passing along. The hip belt pockets are small and situated very far to the rear for me. This may not be an issue for most but I'm a huge NFL linebacker-sized guy. I'd like to add an aftermarket shoulder strap pouch but there are no good attachment points. I rigged it anyway. The load lifters on my pack are useless. Under load, they extend to their maximum length and will not adjust. For summer use when I'm not carrying a lot of extra layers, I'd like to be able to compress the pack a bit more. Perhaps just one more horizontal compression strap on the upper part of the pack would help. All in all, a wonderful pack.

This pack keeps getting more usefulI bought this for myself Christmas of 2013 intending to get my first sturdy day pack for day hikes and weekend traveling. Since, I've used it for day hikes, 2-4 day backpacking trips, other weekend trips, as a flight carry-on, and (in a pinch) as an academic bag. 5'6" female. I have an older model but I can speak to how it has held up over the years and hopefully the new models are at least as good. Overall feels: I find the bag to be quite comfortable, even when loaded with 20-30lbs of stuff. The water bottle pockets are a little difficult to get to, but I got used to it over time. I also enjoy having the brain, because I can grab a pencil/notebook/wallet/snack out of it pretty easily when I'm on the go without too much fuss. The hip pockets are also always a nice feature - I often get comments from friends about them. Overall functionality: This pack really shines as a day pack. I have never fully filled it during any day trip, so it looks kind of saggy while wearing. The brain/drawstring combo also can be a pain to get into mid-trip, but if you plan where to put snacks/water/rain jacket when you pack the bag it's less of an issue. As a multi-day pack, it can hold the basics - sleeping bag, hammock, tarp, water, first aid, a few layers, and some dense food - but I wouldn't count on bringing a stove. The brain is useful for attaching tarps and sleeping mats externally by just clipping the straps down. As an academic pack this is not so great. It's a pain to get into during classes and it's just not made to hold textbooks and notebooks. As a weekend travel pack, it can hold everything without being too bulky on trains/buses, and it's comfortable to wear even in a crowded urban area. Overall durability: The back has sagged weirdly and is now less comfortable, especially when it isn't holding many items. There are no major rips, buckle breaks, or seam failures though and that says something about the quality.

Awesome!I've been using this backpack for 7 years now, although I got a new one (from the life warranty policy!!) 2 years ago. I've taken it on an 8-month trip abroad as my only pack, and have done a month-long hiking trip with it. I also use it almost every day for classes, although it is a bit too big for this. What I love about this pack for backpacking trips is that it forces you to pack light, but you can squeeze sleeping bag, tent, and thermarest in if you really try. Super durable, and the life warranty means you might never have to buy another one.

This is a great mid-size pack[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this pack about a month ago because I needed a mid-sized pack with a brain, and I've been able to take it on a few day trips so far. I'm really happy with the features, and that it's pretty durable for the weight. The compression straps help pull it down into a secure load, the shoulder straps are comfy, the hipbelt pockets have plenty of space, and the back support is really comfy. I've used it this winter as a day pack and there is plenty of room for my sleeping bag, tarp, and sleeping pad in case of emergencies, and I'm looking forward to using it as a UL multi-day pack in the warmer months. Would definitely recommend.

Please note that the info provided above refers to the torso size the pack will fit, and NOT any dimensions of the pack. Below are some steps for how to get your torso length. You should have someone help take this measurement for you so it is accurate.
HOW to MEASURE TORSO LENGTH: • Start at the iliac crest, which is the top of the hipbones on the side of your body. These act like a shelf for supporting a pack hipbelt. • From this level on your spine, measure to the C7 vertebrae, the knobby bone at the base of your neck when you put your head down. • Make sure you keep your back as straight as possible while measuring. • This torso measurement determines what size Osprey pack you should carry. Refer to the size chart above to find your ideal size. • If you are in between sizes, it is ideal to try them both on before ordering.
HOW to MEASURE HIPBELT SIZE: • Measure around your hips at your iliac crest, NOT your waist. • A properly fitted hipbelt rides centered over the hipbones and needs to be very snug. • The padded portion should wrap well around your hips, leaving a gap of 3 to 6 inches between the tips of the both hip pads when securely tightened. • Refer to the Hipbelt size info above to help determine your ideal pack size, but again, your torso length is what should determine your pack size, NOT the hipbelt.
ALL MIGHTY GUARANTEE - Osprey's Lifetime Warranty
When Osprey celebrated their 35th anniversary in 2009 they launched The Osprey All Mighty Guarantee. What that means to you is ANY Osprey product purchased at ANY time is covered. Any product, any reason, any era - the all encompassing Osprey lifetime warranty ensures their dedication to superior design, craftsmanship and quality of their products is backed up by their actions to replace or repair a pack so it lasts a lifetime. Or two.
Here are some details.... Osprey will repair for any reason, free of charge, any damage or defect in their products, whether it was purchased back in 1974, or ordered right now from this site. If they are unable to perform a functional repair on your pack, they will happily replace it. Osprey proudly stands behind the All Mighty Guarantee, so much so that it bears the signature of company founder and head designer, Mike Pfotenhauer.
Some Osprey All Mighty Guarantee FAQs:
What do I do if my Osprey pack needs to be repaired?
If you live in the United States and need a repair done on your Osprey pack, you will first need to obtain a Return Authorization number. You can do this by reaching their Returns Department at 866-314-3130, or using the information that is provided with a new Osprey pack.
What do I do if I just need a replacement pack part like a buckle?
Give Osprey a call at 866-314-3130 and they will take care of you.
How long will it take?
You can tell Osprey you need the pack returned by a certain date when you request a Return Authorization number, and they will do their absolute best to meet that deadline.
What if my pack is super dirty and stinks?
Clean it before you send it to Osprey to get repaired. The real reason is that there is a law that says if your gear is too dirty or odiferous (smelly), Osprey is not allowed to repair it and will just return it to you.
Do I have to pay for shipping?
A little bit. You are responsible for the cost of shipping the pack to Osprey, and they will pay shipping to return the pack via UPS or FedEx. Osprey cannot be held responsible if packages get lost in transit, so make sure you get a tracking number when you ship your pack out. Also, if you use expedited shipping be sure to let Osprey know (866-314-3130). They, in turn, will give your pack priority processing and return it using a similar expedited shipping method.
Do I have to register my pack to take advantage of this incredible guarantee, and/or need to be the original owner of my Osprey pack?
No! Osprey's All Mighty Guarantee is truly ALL MIGHTY. If you own an Osprey pack that needs to be repaired they will repair or replace it.
JUST A HEADS UP: If your Osprey product is not repairable and is replaced, the original product will not be returned to you. They will try really really hard to repair your pack, but if they are unable to make a functional repair, they will replace it. For products that are no longer in production you will be contacted by Osprey to discuss replacement options.
All good answers. So what is NOT covered?
• Osprey program packs or any Osprey pack used by outdoor programs are ONLY covered under Osprey's Program Pack Warranty, NOT AMG.
• Size and/or fit issues. Make sure you buy a pack that fits. Check out the size guide on Osprey product pages for more info.
• Personal preferences like colors you don't like, style of the pack, or not enough/too much room in your pack. Check the product description, features, specifications, and size guide to make sure you are ordering the right pack for you.
• Third party Repairs or replacements. Send your Osprey pack to Osprey and Osprey only to get fixed. Easy as that. And don't try fixing things yourself.
• Cosmetic wear and tear including any reasonable aging of your pack that affects only the appearance and not the function of your pack. Be proud of those scars!
• B.A.M.G. (Before All Mighty Guarantee) Repair Work. The All Mighty Guarantee applies only to repairs requested on or after January 1, 2009.
• A Osprey Hydraulics reservoir is covered by a limited 1-year warranty, which is the reasonable lifespan of a reservoir. Pouring and storing of warm/hot or boiling water in your reservoir WILL VOID your warranty, so don't do that. Reservoirs are NOT designed to contain or handle liquids at temperature.
