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.

Hiking

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/1)

I also purchased a Capture Clip from Peak Designs which allows you to fix the camera to the shoulder strap in place while hiking – a great addition to this pack.

Beast28 Matador

(1/1)

This awesome,lightweight backpack packs down into a tiny carrying case, but expands to be quite accommodating for a day hike with functional compartments to keep your items well organized. Highly recommended!

Size

Beast28 Matador

(1/1)

Speaking of size, the Beast28 is not ashamed to tell you how big it is and includes it’s size right there in the name: 28L. It weighs 20oz or 567g, which is about 2.5 quarter pounders with cheese – mmm. The backpack itself is considered in the mid range size of daypacks (normally between 10L-30L), so it works well as a carry on item, or even a personal item with some airlines
