Show Description

Take the weight off your shoulders. The Talon’s super-comfortable carrying system makes it great for gear-intensive day hikes or minimalist overnights. Ventilated air channels in the back panel and shoulder straps allow heat to escape, keeping you comfortable on sweaty excursions. Stretch-mesh side pockets are easy to access and have plenty of room for sunscreen and protein bars and shoulder strap pockets stash your GPS for quick navigation info.

  • Mesh-covered die-cut foam hipbelt, shoulder straps and back panel are lightweight and let air flow.
  • Seamlessly integrated lumbar pad and hipbelt transfers weight without rubbing.
  • Top-loading access to the main compartment underneath the removable lid.
  • Additional side zipper entry into main compartment.
  • Bottom zipper provides quick access to your sleeping bag.
  • Stretch-mesh pockets on the shoulder strap, hip belt, sides and front are easy to access on the go.
  • Stow-on-the-Go trekking pole attachment lets you stash your poles without taking off your pack.
  • External hydration sleeve accommodates a 3L reservoir (sold separately) and is easy to load and unload without opening the main compartment.
