I used to lug around a huge 88L pack on my adventures. But since getting the Talon 44, I've converted to the less is more philosophy. The Talon 44 holds everything I need with room to spare. It's comfortable, light, and hugs my back so closely, that I hardly feel the load I'm carrying. It's even carry on legal size so I never have to check my bag when flying. It's my go to pack for all my hiking, camping & international adventures.
