Osprey Packs was founded in Santa Cruz, CA in 1974, with Founder, Owner and Head Designer Mike Pfotenhauer sewing custom backpacks on a customer by customer basis. Osprey Packs today is a far cry from the Osprey of 1974, with worldwide distribution, excellent brand recognition and a pocketful of editorial awards. Despite this growth, some important constants remain – Mike's design and ownership and our dedication to innovation and quality in packs.
The Talon series is Osprey's best-selling range, perfectly designed for fast moving active performance – the packs are made from a super lightweight material providing comfort and ventilation as well as having excellent back support due to the AirScape® backpanel made from ridge moulded foam. New for spring 2011 is the LidLock® feature which enables the rider to safely stow the helmet onto the pack. The series includes Talon 4, Talon 8, Talon 11, Talon 22, Talon 33 and Talon 44 and are available in a range of colours.
Talon specific pack features:
