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 Light Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/2)

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 Light Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

I wore this pack while biking on a rail-trail, hiking around the Red River Gorge area in KY, and doing the Via Ferrata climb in that same area. I never felt encumbered by the straps and the pack sat nicely in place as I scrambled around. I did drink ALL of the water on one of the days (again, it was 95F) so if you think you need more volume, consider the larger size.

Compartment

CamelBak Hydrobak Light Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

I liked having 2 separate compartments, and the clip for keys is nice for making sure they don't accidentally fall out when you're on a chairlift. The locking lever on the bite valve is great for making sure the pack doesn't leak when you toss it in the car or into a bigger backpack, and the disconnect for cleaning the tube will come in handy later on.

Carry-on

CamelBak Hydrobak Light Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

The sealing mechanism for this bag is terrible. It is nearly impossible to get a good seal that holds the water in. If you do not turn the cap enough it will leak (okay, that part makes sense). If you turn it too far, the cap will go past the threads on the bag and become nearly impossible to open (and it still doesn't hold water)

Strap

CamelBak Hydrobak Light Hydration Pack - Men's

(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
