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.

Black Diamond Cirque 22

(1/1)

This 22 liter pack really feels like a running vest! Super comfortable and easily holds all my gear for a day out... including a full-size camera and extra lens! There is no way to route a water bladder but the chest pockets fit a 700mltr flask or you can fit a nalgene in the lower back pocket which is accessible while the pack is on

Compartment

Black Diamond Cirque 22

(1/1)

If the vest was more packed, unless I placed the probe right in the middle of the pocket, it would prevent the top from closing completely. Just another few cm would make a difference! I also like the separation between wet skins and the rest of the stuff and having the pocket be a bit bigger would help with that as well.

Size

Black Diamond Cirque 22

(1/1)

As far as sizing of the vest goes, I used the BD fit guide to figure out what size of vest I should get and based on my torso measurements, I selected a size small. The size fit perfectly. I found that the ski vest fit very similar to my running vest. All sizing in DB is unisex
