Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Compartment

battalion 12hr recycled firefighter

(1/2)

To be exact, we’ve tested the Battalion with the Tom Bihn Cache. The Cache’s zipper opens all the way around, allowing us to leave the top open and slide our laptop out without having to physically remove the entire case from the pack. Essentially, it’s a makeshift laptop pocket (just a little Pack Hacker hack for ya).

Strap

(1/2)

The backpack straps on the Battalion are solid, especially considering that this is a 12L pack. They’re beefy (½ inch of padding), wide, and have a slight contour to them. You could probably load this pack up with bricks and comfortably wear it all day long.
