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.

Comfort-wise, this bag is not as comfortable as a true backpacking backpack, but I don't think its reasonable to expect that and to have the flexibility this bag provides as a piece of true luggage. It's a trade off, and well worth it. Having hands free on a long trip was a godsend, and the lack of retractable handle-associated hardware really frees up a lot of space inside the bag, in comparison to a roll-aboard style carry-on. Imagine navigating international airports with two little ones and the associated toileting/diapering/eating

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.

Compartment

Carry-on

Ebags mother lode

(1/2)

This bag is perfect for the weekend trip or if you're traveling to another continent. Size: This bag is perfect for people that don't want to check a bag at the airport. It does have the ability to fit in the overhead compartment for both domestic and international flights. This is great for people that are looking to save money on baggage fees(I am one of them)

Size

Ebags mother lode

(1/2)

At the current price, its a fine small duffel bag at about an effective 20 liters; its capacity is smaller than the specs would lead one to believe. It might be a fine overnight bag for a small child or a petite person but I would not recommend that use for a large adult unless its for very light weight summer clothes — shorts, T-shirts, a pair of sandals & very small toiletry kit.

Strap

Ebags mother lode

(1/1)

The design flaw is that the chest strap is removable and slides off WAY too easily. I ordered a bag and it came out of the box missing one side of the strap. I contacted eBags and they said "too bad, contact Amazon since you didn't buy it from us". Of course, Amazon cannot send me a missing part so I returned the bag and replaced it with another
