These are a really great pair of climbing shoes. The rubber is really grippy with a nice edge. They are comfortable but offer a close fitting cut with plenty of control. Currently on sale at Field and Trek for a bargain price.

A superb bag for lugging all you kit around in. It is made out of a tough material that will last for a long time. The zips are nice and strong. Handles are well thought out and strong. On the larger models the backpack style straps are great. The side compression straps help in reducing space and the wet/dry compartment is a very clever feature that comes in very useful.
I have the 100L bag which is great for when you have loads of gear or if your going away for a while. I think i might have to get one of the smaller ones as well though so i have the whole spectrum covered.
I think the RRP is pretty average for the product but Cotswold Outdoor have had them on sale for well over a year now at almost half price, and that is very good value!

  • Excellent build quality
  • Good design
  • Cool Colours

This is a great pack that is extremely comfortable and lightweight. I bought it for carrying the essentials on a day hike and it performs brilliantly.

The size of the Talon 22 is great for spring/summer walks but is a little small when a few more layers are required in the winter. For greater flexibility it may be worth going for the Talon 33.

The design of the pack is exceptionally well thought out with the comfy 'clings to your back' design and a variety of pockets. The stretchy pocket on the back is also ver useful and the reflective claw design looks great.

My only issue with the pack is that i have managed to cause a small tear to the front panel. I think this would probably due to me being careless but it does highlight how Osprey have compromised ruggedness in the aide of weight reduction. Thankfully the rip-stop fabric means the tear is only tiny and i can carry on with with a patch of duck tape a big smile on my face.

This is a great piece of kit which now means i am unlikely to buy another bag from anyone other than Osprey.
