Great for a long day hike and makes a really good rock climbing bag. Having the top strap under the top pouch allows to carr a rope easily

Comments about Osprey Talon 44 Backpack, Avatar Blue, M/L:

I bought this bag for a 5d/4n hiker in Torres Del Pain in Chile. I didn't have to carry all my food with me as i did the assisted trail but i carried all my gear with me and the bag didn't disappoint.
I got rain, snow storm, really (i mean really) windy weather and tons of sun. The bag resisted all that. I didn't use a pack cover. I simply used bin bags and and put everything inside. It was perfect, lighter and better for the strong winds in get in the park.
There was a minor tear in the mesh of the side pockets but nothing on the seams.
The pack fitted me like a sweater. I am a weight conscious hiker and carry on the necessary things (a lot of first aid and medicine as i am a solo hiker) and the bag passed with flying colors.
Pricewise is a good choice for the quality you get.

    Comments about Osprey Talon 44 Backpack, Avatar Blue, M/L:

    I have used this pack on a couple of 3 day hikes on the AT. Also packed it for a 5 day hike, but was rained out. This bag will hold all you can cram into it, however, it gets pretty uncomfortable on the higher range of weight (35-40 lbs.) I packed it out without water at 35 lbs., put in a few 15+ mile days in Tennessee and was more than happy to take this thing off. A full bladder will bulge the back panel when the pack is full. This is a great bag for lighter weights (>28lbs) and shorter days. It's an Opsrey so it is going to last.
