Comments about Osprey TALON 33:
I 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.
