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.

CamelBak Fourteener 26 Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

Used this for the Mt Lafayette loop in NH a little over 9 miles with 3800’ elevation change. This pack was extremely comfortable I think the air channels helped but once you start climbing nothing helps. The pole clip is a must have for hikers as well as the waist strap elastic pocket. The waist pocket allowed me to take pictures with my phone at a moments notice without having to remove my pack or trying to finagle with zippers

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 Fourteener 26 Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/3)

Very good quality. It's big and you have a lot of room for some snacks, bug spray, some sun block and a couple of other little items that you might want to have with you on a hike. It holds a lot of water and it can really hold enough stuff for the day. We are in the desert southwest so the more water the better

Size

CamelBak Fourteener 26 Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

However, there is a trade off with the size of the pack. Camelbak is a quality hydration pack and though this bag is over 150$, you are getting a quality bag. Its very well cushioned and comfortable for its size. 100 ounces is a lot of hydration

Strap

CamelBak Fourteener 26 Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

I like the waist strap portion because it keeps your phone and other high reach items at easy access. The water pack is detachable and easy to clean. it honestly works just like regular back pack, and if it weren't for the spout, I would honestly think it was a regular backpack. The fabric and stitching is very well done
