Can't find a bag that is small enough to pack my small things but won't look like a woman's bag/purse so I bought this hydration bag and took out the fluid pouch.
Nishiki Warwick 100oz.
I like the padded waist strap with pockets
Labeled compartments. Was able to put my small knife, small led flashlight,two large
Oakley hard cases, point and shoot camera, and 3 earphones while the back can fit
an ipad if you remove the hydration pouch(and the back compartment is well padded). Nice
the 100oz. fluid/hydration pouch pouch

The reviews weren't lying, it's just gobbles gear, it fits a lot for a pack this size. My old 25 litre couldn't nearly hold as much.

The Talon series is the lightest of all Osprey series and it shows in the suspension, among others. It's a bit minimalistic though still very comfortable. It miraculously held eveything i needed for a lightweight overnighter, i kept being amazed over and over....
Including 3 liters of water i packed a total of 8.5-9Kg and i have had zero issues. It was comfortable, light, easy to use and showed no stress issues. I noticed that i pulled the shoulder straps pretty tight for better comfort unlike other, stiffer, packs where i left some space between the back of my shoulders and the straps. This however made me have to loosen the shoulderstraps and hipbelt adjusters when taking of the pack and redo the adjustments when continuing, though this was no issue for me as it's fast and easy. The talon hugged my body more and most of the time i didnt notice the pack at all. This is probably beacuse the suspension is stretchy and that also explains why it needs a tigther adjustment; to avoid the pack to wobble left and right.
All in all a great pack and If you want a lightweight pack i can highly recommend it. A step up in suspension would be the Atmos i think. Stiffer/heavier pack but sturdier suspension and pack as a whole.
Though for an overnighter 24liters is very minimal and chances are i'm getting a larger pack for that
