Description

Simpler is often better, and if you prefer going light and moving fast in the woods, mountains and beyond, the Talon 44 is the pack for you. 44L of capacity is perfect for committing day hikes and lightweight multi-day trips. Ventilated and comfortable, the BioStretch™ harness and continuous wrap hipbelt combine with a fiberglass frame to create an incredibly stable carry system that hugs your body so you can stay balanced on the trail, ridge or peak. We scratched our heads and updated our AirScape™ backpanel to use less material and glue while making it more breathable to keep you cool on hot days. When uphills turn technical, our Stow-on-the-Go™ trekking pole carry system keeps your hands free for upward movement. Zippered hipbelts, side stretch mesh pockets with dual access, a harness pocket, and top-lid storage provide all the organization you need.

Key Attributes

MULTI-SPORT

From top loaders to lumbar packs and everything in between, the Talon/Tempest series accommodates the needs of hikers, bikers and more.

CONTINUOUS LUMBAR-TO-HIPBELT WRAP

I Love This Pack

5

I used it on a through hike of the 140 miles Northville-Placid Trail and then the Cranberry 50 in the Adirondacks Mountians and even when takeing a break did not have a desire to remove this comfortable pack. Holds everything i need and then some. I laced some shockcord zid-zag across the exterior to hold itemts I wanted to dry. I like the removable top when I settle in for the night as it adds easier interior access to the main pack. The more I use it the more I like it!

Good alternative if the EXOS 38 or 48 don't fit

Quick Summary: I like this pack better than the EXOS and recommend it as an alternative to that pack Full Comments: I wanted the Exos it just was not comfortable on my body type. Purchased this pack on a whim because I had seen the other talon packs. I have about 10 days of backpacking with this pack so far and about 150 miles and I have to say this pack does not get enough attention. Mine M/L weights 2lbs 7oz which is respectable. My 3 day pack weight with consumables and bear can is 23 lbs and this pack works great. I have had it to about 28lbs with no problems at all. Not sure how it would do with the 40lbs listed. The padding on the belt is a bit light but I like the fact that it can wrap well over the top of my iliac crest to keep it from slipping down. I really like the fact that it has removable pad straps as I use that to hold my tent but you could remove them and save another oz or so.

I wouldn't buy this for adventure racing

Nice backpack and enough room for compulsory gear and food for multi day adventure races. Unfortunately I kept loosing my food from the waist packets when bush bashing as the zips get caught and slide backwards opening up the pocket. Then your bars and gels fall out. Would get another star if the zips opened by pulling forward.
