Ideal for fast-and-light day hiking, adventure racing and other active pursuits, the Osprey Talon 18 is sleek and functional. Despite weighing less than 1.5 pounds, the Talon 18 is capable of comfortably carrying loads of up to 20 pounds.
An AirScape backpanel lends the Talon 18 flexible support and breathability. Both the Biostretch hipbelt and Talon Biostretch adjustable harness straps are padded with die-cut slotted foam and covered in mesh to keep weight to a minimum. Together they enhance comfort and optimize fit. Further enhancing fit, the hipbelt utilizes an ErgoPull closure that draws tension along the top and the bottom of the belt.
Accommodating users of different dimensions, the Talon 18 is available in two sizes: Small/Medium fits torsos ranging from 16"-20" in length and the Medium/Large size fits torsos that are between 19" and 23" in length. The streamlined storage capacity varies based on size, as well: Small/Medium is 976 cubic inches and Medium/Large is 1098 cubic inches.
The top-loading packbag is accessed beneath a lid that also includes a zippered storage pocket. Stretch woven pockets on the sides of the Talon 18 offer additional organizational options and keep gear and extra layers close at hand. A small dedicated stretch pocket on the Talon 18's shoulder strap is perfect for snacks, energy gels or electronics. Larger zippered pockets on the hipbelt offer quick and easy access to other gear and trail essentials. InsideOut compression straps on the lower sides allow you to cinch down the Talon 18 and keep contents safely in place for load control.
Other features found on the Talon 18 include a Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment on the shoulder strap, ice tool attachments with a bungee tie-offs and a patterned reflective graphic for visibility in low light situations. A lined, exterior compartment makes the Talon 18 compatible with hydration systems (sold separately) and makes it possible to refill your reservoir without having to access the interior of the pack.
