Osprey Talon 44 Backpack

Stuff you may find useful

Picking the right pack can be a challenge, but if you're looking for a high quality, compact backpack, the Osprey Talon 44 Backpack is really difficult to beat. It's compact, holding just 42 or 44 litres (depending on the size), but for travellers who aren't packing the kitchen sink with them -- especially those who love to travel light this could be the ideal pack.

Osprey Talon 44 BackpackThe pack is fully adjustable, with enough straps to satisfy even the most avid wanna-be parachutist. It's top loading, meaning that you're guaranteed that whatever you want will always be at the bottom of the pack. there's also interior pockets where you can better stash some of your less valuable valuables (never, ever pack essentials in your pack -- always keep them on you). There's also a few stretch mesh sections which can be handy for sticking stuff in while you're on the go.

For those who believe in being fully prepared, there is even dual quick and easy ice axe attachment and tool tie off points -- cool!

The pack weighs in betwen 1.05 kg (2 lbs. 5 oz.) and 1.11 kg (2 lbs. 7 oz.) and is available in a range of colours -- including spicy chilli! -- to hopefully match with the rest of your outfit.

Best of all, it comes with a Osprey 100% Lifetime Guarantee: If you're not satisfied with your purchase, you can return it any time for a refund of the purchase price.
