We’ve actually got two versions (years) of the Transalp, the older has a soft back and the newer has a bit stiffer back panel, which is probably a bit cooler, but is also 5 oz heavier. As far as the weight, the older one is 2.2 lbs and the newer is 2.5 lbs, that’s without the 100 oz bladder, which I was surprised to find almost weighs a 1/2 lb itself. Yes, it’s a bit heavier than say the Talon 22, but you do get some extra space for that and an integral rain cover. Probably what I like most about the Transalp is that it has a lot of places to stuff things, inside and outside pockets, zipped and open mesh, but it was also very comfortable when carrying 15+ pounds in it. Additionally, that comfort was for a range of different size backs, mine being a long torso, and my wife’s being short. We both have no issues over the fit and best of all the packs carry well enough to kind of disappear (as much as packs ever do) on your ride. My older pack is probably 5+ years old now, and shows no sign of wear, and that’s with using it as an everyday bag, day hiking pack, travel pack, and now bikepacking pack. So, quality I’d say is good. Overall, we really like the pack.

Good story about my Transalp…I was wearing it while riding Gooseberry Mesa. I cut too close to an old dead tree and hooked my pack on the tree by the carry handle sewed onto the top of the pack. The pack lifted me and my bike off the ground and slammed me into the side of the tree.

The only damage to the pack was a six inch perfectly straight tear in the pack body. Took it to REI in Denver and they fixed it right up. No problems since. Unfortunately my body, shorts, and jersey did not survive that crash as nicely.

Great pack.

SImply to heavy even when empty. DOes not sit that well on body. Straps tend to press into shoulder muscles.

While I have a much older one I love it. The pack is my Hike, bike, commute, snowboard, snowshoe. ETC pack. There is a ton of great storage and it fits me great! I would recomend this to anyone looking for an all in one day pack.

I love this pack. I got it when it first came out and despite trying many other packs this remains my favourite. Despite being 15yrs+ old and being used a lot it’s still going strong.

I hope I find something I like as much before it wears out.

I love it and … I had bought it 12years ago and I just used on all trips..
On my last trip I had to throw it away as I was complete wearn out.
I do not think it still exists 🙁 does it?
I am desperately looking for one bag exactly like this…
anyone any ideas?
