Osprey Talon Pro 30 - 2 Month Real-World Testing Review

After using the Osprey Talon 33 for many years, I spent a few months testing out the new Osprey Talon Pro 30 backpack, and it's great. I've tested it on winter hikes, desert hikes, and short overnighters, and it works well for all of them. And like the other Talon models, it's light, has an external hydration bladder pocket, and is pretty bomb-proof. In this video I'll go over the various features, how it compares to the regular Osprey Talon 33, and who the Talon Pro is for.

Cris Hazzard 4 Mile Trail Yosemite
Hi, I'm Cris Hazzard, aka Hiking Guy, a professional outdoors guide, hiking expert, and author based in Southern California. I created this website to share all the great hikes I do with everyone else out there. This site is different because it gives detailed directions that even the beginning hiker can follow. I also share what hiking gear works and doesn't so you don't waste money. I don't do sponsored or promoted content; I share only the gear recommendations, hikes, and tips that I would with my family and friends. If you like the website and YouTube channel, please support these free guides (I couldn't do it without folks like you!).
