Only a week to go!!!
I’ve actually been training with my loaded pack for a couple of months now to get use to the weight. I’m really pleased with my Osprey Tallon 44L. It is lightweight and compact with an inner frame for easy handling. I would have liked a brighter colour but black was the only one available at the time and let’s face it, its not a fashion parade!
