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 Helena 20 Hydration Pack - Women's - 2.5 Liters

(1/1)

An upgrade from my old CamelBak is the elastic chest strap. It provided me with better comfort and convenience when trying to zip and unnzip my jacket.

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 Helena 20 Hydration Pack - Women's - 2.5 Liters

(1/2)

This pack is very versatile and is great for day hikes. CamelBak knows how to make a women's specific pack comfortable and fit well. An upgrade from my old CamelBak is the elastic chest strap. It provided me with better comfort and convenience when trying to zip and unnzip my jacket

CamelBak Helena 20 Hydration Pack - Women's - 2.5 Liters

(1/1)

It's bigger than a typical mt biking pack so would be good for an all day long epic ride. It is also really great for short to moderate day hikes. Look, I love being able to organize my stuff, and this has plenty of pockets and places to stash snacks, keys (every pack should have a key fob and this one does!), first aid kit, tire repair stuff, snacks, extra layers, snacks. I haven't seen many packs this size that have the pockets on the hip belt -- bonus score

Size

CamelBak Helena 20 Hydration Pack - Women's - 2.5 Liters

(1/2)

The hydration pack is a nice size with a cool feature to keep it suspended up high inside the pack -- a plastic "handle" that makes it easy to fill in from my fridge door AND it slides inside a "pouch" inside the pack to keep it from sliding down to the bottom. Pretty dang slick. Overall this is a really sweet little pack (and it actually looks better in person!).
