Benedicto.co – Featuring Escapist 20, Talon 22 and Raven 14 – August 2014

August 1, 2014

Osprey is our choice for packs while mountain biking and bikepacking. I’m alternating between the Escapist 20 and the Talon 22 and Tori is using the Raven 14 exclusively…

Osprey Escapist 20

This has become my favorite mountain biking bag. Origninally I thought it would just be may bikepacking pack, but I’ve found myself taking it around town or to Sandy Ridge. It’s the right size for me to bring everything I need, including 2 liters of water, food, outerwear, tools, tubes, pump. The best part is how it sits on your back without swinging. I know the Raptor is a favorite for many, but I feel like the Escapist 20 is a good size upgrade that will encourage people to bring the right amount of emergency gear without feeling like your pack is overstuffed…

Osprey Talon 22

The Talon 22 is a hit with the endurance racing crowd due to it’s light weight and decent volume. I love the outer quick stash pockets and large internal volume. My only complaint is a lack of compartmentalization, but that is clearly a design choice by Osprey and I find myself appreciating that spaciousness as I live with the pack…If you’re looking for a light pack to fit larger items, this is a great choice…

July 27, 2013

I just want to start with how much I LOVE this backpack. It’s pretty much everything I have been looking for in a backpack for day hiking. The backpack I am talking about is the Osprey Talon 22 from the Talon Series. This backpack is lightweight, but with the features that keep all of your gear organized and easy to carry. I pretty much use this backpack all. the. time. It is a multi-use backpack so it can be used for hiking, biking, adventure racing, travel, festivals or anywhere you need to lug gear.

Here are the features that I require in a backpack that the Talon 22 delivers on…

There is the much needed hydration sleeve situated in the back of the pack. I always use a hydration reservoir so this was a must feature. It also has water bottle holders on each side which come in handy when I need to bring extra water or a different type of beverage.

There is a stuff pocket in front that is just as important as the hydration sleeve. I always stuff a jacket or long sleeve shirt in the stuff pocket with other items that I want easy access to. The Talon 22 is made with a stretchy fabric so you can shove A LOT of items in the stuff pocket making it a very handy feature.

TheWirecutter.com – Featuring Talon 22 – June 20, 2013

June 20, 2013

When we think of summer, we think of road trips, beach days and BBQs. Most of the time, all you need to enjoy your summer is some time away from work and your friends. But sometimes having the right gear can help make things better.

So, on the eve of Summer Solstice, we present you with this list of over 80 researched items that we think can enhance–or even allow you to have–an adventure. Although some of these are The Wirecutter or The Sweethome picks researched thoroughly, most of them are casual favorites we found after at least 20 minutes of researching or a few months or years of personal use. We tried to stay away from anything too frivolous, but let us know if we got anything wrong, or if we have missed anything you recommend. We’ll update this guide through the summer.

P.S. Please remember, just because this list is filled with high quality goods does not mean you need all or even most of them. You are capable of having a wonderful, memorable, amazing summer of fun and adventure without too many props. Just grab your friends and say yes to more things than you say no to, and don’t be afraid to scare yourself a little bit in the process. Things will work out just fine. (…)

Backpack (Haul your rations further and more surely)

If you plan on spending much of your summer on the trail, it’s time to upgrade to a dedicated hiking daypack. REI recommends choosing a well-ventilated, comfortable pack with side pockets and compartments with around 30 liters of storage space, enough to hold all of your food, clothing and gear. The Outdoor Gear Lab’s Editors’ Choice is the Osprey Talon 22, which costs $100. At 20-22 liters, depending on size, it’s a little smaller than REI recommends, but Outdoor Gear Lab says its design makes it possible to stuff in as much (or as little) as you need for your hiking. Its helmet attachment and tow loop make it a good selection for bikers as well. Raymond Estrella at Backpack Gear Test likes its ventilated back and comfortable hip strap, vital for long trips in the heat.

OutdoorGearLab.com – Featuring Talon 22 (Top Pick) and Raptor 14 – June 2013

June 1, 2013

We took 11 top packs and spent six months hiking, biking, and running to find which is the ultimate hydration system. Ever since the first CamelBak arrived over a decade ago, hydration options have changed a lot and there is now an overwhelming number of innovations and options. Which of these innovations is necessary and do you even need a dedicated hydration pack at all? Read on and be sure to check out the article How to Choose a Hydration Pack where we go more into the pros and cons of hydration packs and reservoirs.

Top Pick – Most Versatile

Narrowly missing Editors’ Choice is our own creation: the Osprey Talon 22 with Platypus Big Zip SL. It is the most versatile system we tested and scores very high for storage and comfort. Best of all, when you don’t want a hydration bladder/hose you just remove it and you are left with the Editors’ Choice from our Day Pack Review. Carefully read our How to Choose a Hydration Pack article… you may find you want a setup like this and not a hydration pack after all.
