Osprey and Macpac are the two best brands of rucksack, unless you want to pay silly money. Osprey are good for someone like me who wants lightness and comfort, though they are nothing like as tough as Macpac.

Although this is only a small daypack, it can be extended to fit accurately, with the hip belt resting correctly. I am 5ft 10 and the S/M is right at the upper end of its adjustment range. I recommend you read the sizing instructions on the Osprey website, as getting the right size is important.

Lots of handy pockets on the hip belt and shoulder straps, with a clip for a bike helmet. Nowhere really for an ice axe, though I used the clip for walking poles with the head of the axe at the top and the point in the side pocket, which worked ok; I think two technical axes would be too much for this pack. Fits an Osprey hydration pack, though there are handy pockets at the sides that hold half litre water bottles nicely. There is a slide-in pocket at the back which is perfect for holding a map or guide book, which you can get at without taking the pack off, so long as it is not raining.

The pack is not totally waterproof, though good enough to keep my stuff dry in a short rainstorm.

HASH(0x8f0138ec) out of 5 stars Awesome pack for bike commuting! 2 July 2011
By Z. Jackson - Published on
I received this pack as a gift (from my Amazon wishlist). I own the Talon 44 and use it for overnight backpacking trips. I needed a smaller pack for my bike commute and day hikes. Osprey has a long reputation for making quality packs, and their unconditional lifetime warranty can't be beat.

On to the Talon 22: My first impression after opening the pack was that the build quality feels really solid. The material is lightweight, but has a nice amount of stretch which should prevent most snags. The main interior compartment is very roomy, and I like that the hydration pouch is separate. This will help keep stuff inside dry and free from condensation from your bladder. For commuting I am carrying a macbook air, a notebook, a folder, my lunch and sometimes a change of clothes. There is more than enough room for these items, plus a 2 liter bladder.

Helmet holder (also works great for a nalgene bottle)
Nice material
High quality stitching
Lots of adjustment
Airscape back allows for great air flow
Top access zipper compartment for small loose items.

A bit expensive for a day pack, but the lifetime warranty and quality make up for it
Would like one or two more small zippered pockets

Overall: I would highly recommend this pack for commuting or day hikes. Outstanding quality, comfortable fit (6'1", 210 lb)

HASH(0x8fb280a8) out of 5 stars Decent backpack with a few drawbacks 16 Aug. 2012
By Mark B - Published on
Nice backpack overall, with a few awkward design points. It is highly adjustable and comfortable overall. I am 5'8" and the M/L is probably just a touch big; but I also tried on the Small, and it was just way too small. But a t my height, I have to really cinch down a lot of straps, so have straps flapping all over the place. Some of the straps loop about, so they end up becoming an irritation on my arm as I walk and hike. These looped straps need to be tucked somewhere, but they always end up popping back out. I have resorted to using chip clips to keep them down. The second issue is the bottom of the pack and the way it droops down if you put something like a book of Kindle in it. The bottom of the pack is loose fabric, so putting anything somewhat heavy at the bottom means that the bottom of the back then protrudes past the waist belt and ends up running on the small of your back below the pack's waist belt. I remedied this by putting soft stuff on the bottom, and things like a book on top of that. Thirdly, the pack has no rigidity at all, so it kind of bends and bows if you do not pack and cinch it right. This means it can bend away from your mid-back area, or it has also has a tendency for me to lean back and bow/fold in the middle, especially since I cannot put heavier items on the bottom per my previous comment. Fourth, it is very difficult to reach the water bottle pocket. I find that I have to remove the pack every time I want to access my water. Finally, the zippered waist pouches on the belt are located a little too far to the side. If you out a small camera or anything else with bulk in there, the pocket tends to rub up against your arms. Still, the pack is well-designed and streamlined overall. I like the features better than some others I looked at when making my decision on a day pack. It's a good choice overall. Zippers are solid; there is a handy mesh pouch at the top of in the main compartment; the top zippered compartment is spacious; and the pouches on the belt are nice but not placed very well. More challenging to cinch this pack down, but it is adequate. I like the bike helmet clasp; and it will hold your hiking pole. Still recommend despite some of the shortcomings.

HASH(0x8f59a330) out of 5 stars Incredible pack! 1 April 2012
By Bkrez - Published on
This pack is absolutely incredible. It is durable, light, and extremely comfortable. I always bring it when I go backpacking as a day pack or fly-fishing pack that I take from base camp. I spent a week in the Colorado Rockies fly fishing for cutthroat trout and it performed flawlessly. My father and I (I am 22 yrs old) got caught in a torrential downpour for about 20 minutes and the pack kept my $1500 Nikon camera completely dry without a pack cover or anything. I own a fly-fishing specific orvis bag but I use this pack over it any day.

One of the beauty's of this bag is that it is comfortable no matter how much weight you have in it. You can carry just lunch or a heavier load and it will remain comfortable. Also, it can be folded and packed into a larger backpacking bag very easily.

I do a lot of backpacking, hiking, fishing etc. This is one of my favorite pieces of gear that I have ever purchased. I have had it 4 years or so, have put it through extreme conditions, and it still looks nearly brand new.

Buy one.

HASH(0x90e7c1ec) out of 5 stars Conflicted - GREAT Pack BUT.... a Defect on Day 2 26 July 2011
By The Dawdler - Published on
Verified Purchase
By all rights this should be a five star review. This pack is really well-designed and looks beautiful. I just bought it a week ago so it's hard to say how it will wear but as far as I can tell I'm going to be really happy with it.

EXCEPT.... on the second day of use I pulled the Lidlock clip out a bit and the Lidlock cord just straight up fell out. It basically tore off and just pulled all the way out of the side that was attached to the backpack.

This really bummed me out. Not because I actually even needed the Lidlock (I was just looking at it). But if this cord tore out with a quick pull (and not a hard pull), what other aspects of this pack are defective?

I paid a lot of money for this pack with the expectation that it was high quality. Now I'm not so sure.

I know that the best of products will have a defect from time to time and I know I can get this repaired for free. But to have a defect right off the bat was just kind of a bummer.

I hope to have the opportunity to leave a five star review for an Osprey pack some day as, so far, this pack is otherwise really fantastic.

******* UPDATE (12/13/2011) - Five months later and the pack has been put to a LOT of use and has been excellent! No other defects, very well-designed. I am changing from three stars to four stars.

HASH(0x8eff933c) out of 5 stars great student bike-commuter backpack 7 Oct. 2012
By Chris - Published on
Colour Name: CloverSize: ML Verified Purchase
I'm currently using this backpack as a student bike-commuter. I bike about 20 minutes to campus everyday, and I wanted something that wouldn't have my back drenched in sweat when I get to my destination. I really debated hard between this and other backpacks that claim this "back air space" for this purpose. I am very satisfied with this one! In addition, I think the style is great. I've gotten complements as well.

I would say the size is a bit awkward for a student backpack - the volume is great, but its volume is vertical not horizontal, but it does fit my macbook laptop plus a couple books. I also use this bag to do my grocery (Trader Joe runs). I can fit a full basket into it (assuming the sizes are not too awkward). BUT even if all my grocery doesn't fit inside the backpack, it has a clip on the top where I clip my plastic bags - I've done it more than 8 times and it hasn't failed yet! Thats where I put vegetables or fruit that didnt fit inside the bag. Keep in mind I just bike to and from the grocery store, so I can't really hold on to anything. So this says a lot about the backpack's capability.

I like the straps (waist and chest), but in the beginning it looked like they were a lot of straps. It takes a little bit of ingenuity to wrap them up and make them look tidy, so as not to look like there are 100 straps (so play around with when you first buy it, but some people actually like the "strappy" look). I like the waist pockets too! I put my wallet there, and its really reliable for quick access. I have not used the hydration packet, but maybe when I do more serious hikes.

So so far I've used this for a month now as a student backpack, and I highly recommend it!

One downside: so sure not everything in life is perfect. Its not as waterproof as I thought,but you can buy the watercover, which is separate. But it doesn't rain much in LA, so it hasn't been an issue for me. But when I go for hikes, perhaps it would be smart to get a water cover.

I am very impressed with Osprey!

UPDATE: Its now been more than a year since I bought this backpack. Its still as awesome as day 1. I like the bike light slot on the back.
I'll keep update to see how long this backpack survives.
