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 Ghost 22

(1/2)

The color design is much improved and looks exceptionally good. Osprey builds some amazing packs. I have a Talon 36 and an Osprey Aether 60 as well and have only complements for the fit and comfort.

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 Ghost 22

(1/2)

The Osprey Talon 22 is the Cadillac of day packs. It is supremely adjustable for a precise fit and holds enough for winter season excursions into the backcountry, full rain gear, down jacket and pants just in case. The frame sheet is very supportive so this will handle a good load of water and all the food I need. It hugs my back and rides so well I just forget about it while hiking rough routes and off trail explorations

Size

Osprey Talon Ghost 22

(1/1)

I received the pack and was impressed by the quality of build and its features, with one glaring exception; the hip belt is way too small. FYI, I have a 40 inch waist, not slim by any means, but a size that is accommodated bu most packs on the market sized M/L. With the Talon 22, wearing a tee shirt and shorts, I was barely able to buckle the hip belt. This is unusual in that I have many packs and have never had this issue in one sized M/L
