The Talon is a hugely popular pack due to the successful combination practical features, low weight and excellent levels of comfort. The Talon 55 is a great pack for multi-day expeditions and overnight trips where you are packing extras for comfort.

Osprey says

The Talon 55 was designed with ultralight multi-day adventures and travellers in mind. An injection-moulded AirScape™ backpanel and a continuous-wrap harness and hipbelt allow the pack to move with you when navigating demanding terrain. This streamlined pack features a top-loading main compartment, a separate sleeping bag compartment with removable divider, hydration reservoir sleeve, dual zippered hip pockets, and attachment points for ice axes and trekking poles. Constructed with high-quality bluesign®-approved recycled high-tenacity nylon with a PFC-free DWR coating.

Our Verdict

Osprey's Talon 55 Litre Rucksack is packed full of features that make it stand out from many other packs in the market. One area it performs brilliantly in is the level of comfort it delivers. The foam padding in the AirScape back panel works really well to allow air to flow through and reduce your temperature and the discomfort that comes with a sweaty back. It is also soft enough to be comfortable with a full load while strong enough to stop anything digging into your back. The perforated foam used in the shoulder straps has a similar effect and they combine really well to maximise comfort.

The 55L capacity is ideal for overnight trips through to multi-day expeditions. The main compartment has access with the roll top opening under the removable lid and also through the vertical side zip opening. There is also a sleeping bag compartment on the bottom. The pack is loaded with features from the stretch mesh side and back pockets to the well sized hip belt pockets, the Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment points to hydration options. Little details like the extra large zip pulls makes use with gloves on much easier. There are attachment points and compression straps to personalise how you get the most out of this pack.
