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 Hydrobak Hydration Pack

(1/1)

This pack is very minimalist, breathes well, and is quite comfortable. I've taken it on multiple 50-mile rides on my gravel bike and found it very comfortable and well riding for a unit with no hipbelt. Pocket is big enough for keys, wallet, etc., but not big enough for tire pump, larger repair items if your deeper away from the cars

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 Hydrobak Hydration Pack

(1/1)

It worked out great because the same bladder system can be used in our Osprey packs when we thru-hike. These days when we do day hikes of maybe 15km or more, we use them because we have them - it's a convenient way to carry a litre of water, your keys, bug spray, sunscreen and some snacks. But given the type of hikes we do now, I wouldn't go running out to buy a new one.

CamelBak Hydrobak Hydration Pack

(1/1)

However, I always give a little squeeze test prior to donning the pack on my back. It is just as easy to get it right as it is to get it wrong.

Strap

CamelBak Hydrobak Hydration Pack

(1/1)

I bought this one since I wanted a new one for summer and all mine were packed. The good stuff about this one: Love the mesh straps. Love the ability to fill without taking it out of the pack. Love the new cap and handle The bad stuff: I don't like the new mouth piece
