Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Osprey Talon 36 Pack - Men's

(1/2)

Comfortable pack without a lot of wasted space or things wasted on weight. 36L is about the right size for a small overnight pack, or for a daypack -- especially if you are bringing lunch or carrying stuff for kids/animals/etc. Comfortable and easy to adjust to fit.

Hiking

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/1)

I also purchased a Capture Clip from Peak Designs which allows you to fix the camera to the shoulder strap in place while hiking – a great addition to this pack.

Osprey Talon 36 Pack - Men's

(1/1)

I got this as an upgrade from my Talon 33. I have only hiked about 20 miles with it but I already like it allot. The new zippered top design makes accessing items in the pack allot easier than the top flap on the Talon 33. It rides comfortably on the back with both a heavy and light load

Compartment

Strap

Osprey Talon 36 Pack - Men's

(1/1)

The straps are much less padded than the Aether line, with Osprey opting for a smooth non-woven fabric sewn around the edge - totaling about 1/4" thick. The padding is also perforated to reduce weight and provide some ventilation. The ice pick / pole holding cinch is integrated into the left strap as well, with a secondary fixed loop on the main pack body. The cinch itself is hidden in the fabric of the strap, but is easy to pinch with two fingers
