Osprey Packs has long been a mainstay of backpackers worldwide. With good reason as their packs are durable, stylish, lightweight and cleverly designed.

Their latest Nebula Backpack is built with modern nomads in mind. The primary feature that sets it apart from other Osprey packs is that it’s TSA-approved, meaning there’s no need to remove your laptop when going through security. The laptop sleeve simply unzips to lay completely flat on the x-ray belt.

Other features include: a heat embossed stash pocket, side stretch mesh pockets to secure extra gear, a front panel organization pocket, an easy-access padded sleeve to keep your electronics safe and secure and a sturdy top grab handle. All packaged into a compact (19″ x 11″ x 11″) and lightweight (just 2.2 pounds) form factor.

Osprey has pretty much defined awesome lightweight travel backpacks for decades. Their Talon series has virtually become the standard kit for minimalist backpackers.

The recently updated Talon 33 is the Goldilocks of the series – not too small, not too big. It’s just right for backpackers looking to take their minimalist packing skills to the next level by traveling with exactly what they need and not an ounce more.

While it retains pretty much all of the previous features that make it awesome, a list of fresh updates take it to the next level. These include lighter weight construction as well as design adjustments to enhance comfort in every available volume. It’s worth noting that the Talon series is now complemented by the Tempest Series specifically for women. – Featuring Ozone Convertible 22″ – November 2013

Features include a well thought-out organization pocket that provides easy access to daily accessories; zippered front flap with a scratch-free electronics/sunglasses pocket; and (the real winner for travelers) an under-flap Port window compartment for instant, protected tablet use without removal from the pack. – Featuring Farpoint 40 – November 2012
