Osprey's new Talon series for Spring 2007 contains four packs (44, 33, 22, and 11 liters) targeted for active light pursuits. The Talon 33 at 2000 cubic inches (33 L) is a frameless pack with just the right volume for an overnight fastpacking trip, multi-day adventure race, or day tripping in colder weather. The beauty of this type of pack is that it hugs the body, is well ventilated, is equipped for hydrating and snacking on the fly, and has loads of convenient access pockets. That said, how does the Osprey Talon 33 provide those desired attributes?
