The Osprey Talon 22 is a great choice if you're looking for a well built day hiking pack, full day adventure backpack, or a mountain backpack for bike backpacking. With a light weight suspension that nicely transfers the weight to the mesh covered, perforated hipbelt, Osprey holds on tight to their reputation for comfortable load carriers. Also perforated and mesh covered for moisture wicking comfort is the shoulder harness. Finding gear is easy because the main pack bag has panel loading access. 3 stretch woven exterior pockets allow for packing gear quickly, while a large pocket features a separate space for more gear organization. Twenty pounds is the maximum recommended load carrying capacity.
