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.

Evergoods Civic Half Zip 22L

(1/1)

Of course, everyone’s daily carry needs are different so if you don’t carry too many small items or don’t mind not having the organization for them, then perhaps this is the perfect bag for you. It still holds up to the reputation of well-designed backpacks that Evergoods has in terms of quality and comfort.Utility: 3 of 5 — The CHZ22 is a fairly basic backpack. Evergoods doesn’t focus on making crazy innovations or unique features to their backpacks

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.

Evergoods Civic Half Zip 22L

(1/2)

(No, I did not let him keep it.)The brand’s newest backpack, the Civic Half Zip 22L, can be thought of as the successor to the Panel Loader. It has that same curved back panel and wavy straps my friend fell in love with, as well as many of the features that he didn’t get to know, like smart internal organization and discreet water bladder compatibility that makes the bag work for hiking, too.The Half Zip might feel more familiar than the Panel Loader though

Compartment

Evergoods Civic Half Zip 22L

(1/1)

The CTB40 has a firm shell so it always holds the same shape. The CHZ22’s exterior, however, is a single nylon layer, so it doesn’t hold the same shape when its empty.We’re clearly fans of EVERGOODS (L to R: CTB40, CHZ22, CPL24)Main Compartment AccessThe namesake of some of Evergoods’ bags are the style of opening (plus the number, which is the volume). The CHZ22 is a half-zip and is 22L in volume

Strap

Evergoods Civic Half Zip 22L

(1/2)

We haven’t dropped this particular sternum strap yet, but we have accidentally pulled it through the attachment loop when tightening. The sternum strap of the same design on the CPL24 came loose twice.
