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:

  • Cordura® Siliconised Nylon
  • Highly ventilated AirScape® backpanel with ridge moulded foam and built in air channels.
  • Large top zip mesh pocket
  • Panel loader with zipped access
  • Inside panel velcro pocket
  • Stretch woven front and side pockets
  • Osprey LidLock™(helmet attachment)
  • Single bungee tool tie-off
  • Tow-loop
  • Bottom InsideOut™ side compression straps
  • BioStretch™ sewn-in hipbelt
  • Zippered stretch mesh hipbelt pockets
  • Fully hydration compatible.

Many thanks from me also. I got home tonight to discover a courier card and wasn't expecting anything so phoned them up to ask where the package was from before going to collect it. It was a rather nice surprise. Cheers UKC and Osprey.

Funnily enough, the talon does not actually use Cordura, according to an Osprey rep who came in the other day!
