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.

CamelBak Arete 18 Hydration Pack

(1/1)

It even holds more than I expected, and can fit a small towel for those hikes that involve a dip in the water. The water pouch holds 1.5 liters, which from my usage is the perfect amount of liquid for a 5-7 mile hike. It's all made from quality materials, and should hold the test of time

CamelBak Arete 18 Hydration Pack

(1/1)

I just returned from Centrikid summer camp as a chaperone with this pack. I served in the Army all over the world and relied on my camelback such as mule and motherlode. So I knew they made awesome products and served me well during combat operations during my four tours of duty. I still have those today but I needed something small light weight and could carry not only water but my few essentials
