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.

Feels comfortable and light. By far the this camel back keeps my back the coolest in hot weather.

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 Lobo 6L Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

Maybe others have used the clips and like it, but I think it’s just a marketing feature, it’s not useful to me and it certainly isn’t very secure. The pak has also been used out on the West Rim trail and the Narrows at Zion (though I had to be careful and lift the pack over my head at some points since the algae blooms were in effect at the time, couldn’t let the narrows water touch the drinking water pack). I could never have done either day hike without the pak, especially part of the west rim, it starts just past angle’s landing at scouts lookout, and goes out to an overlook that very few people go to, which was excellent, except for the doe that ran by on the mountain side switchbacks. I’m just glad it wasn’t a mountain lion or that would have definitely been the last hike! It’s not like they let you bring protection into Zion! That day hike was just a solid 10 miles, and there is absolutely no where to reload on water, so the pak made all the difference for hydration during summer 2020 out at Zion

Compartment

Carry-on

CamelBak Lobo 6L Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

I carry a flip phone in an added pouch on the other strap, easy to get to and use with one hand if you've crashed and broken something and can't get the pack off. Overall, I like it, but what these things cost nowadays is ridiculous. But my old CB lasted 20 years, with only a broken zipper leading to it's replacement. If this ones that good, I'll be in the ground before it breaks, turning 60 next month

Size

CamelBak Lobo 6L Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

I like the size of this compared to a similarly constructed "women's size" CamelBak I recently tried out. This one is the perfect size for my frame (5'8, long torso) and I like the amount of water it fits. There's plenty of room for all of the little necessities I need in the pockets. The reason I'm not head over heels is the material
