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.

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.

Strap

Gregory A3 QuickSwap Shoulder Harness - Women's

(1/1)

Not for the faint hearted if using "off label", but this was an excellent budget solution for me. I have a 14-year old Dana Designs Terraplane backpack, on which the shoulder straps were aged and painful. With a lot of time spent hand sewing (pliers and big needle), I was able to repair my old pack for much less than I could have sending it for 3rd party repair.
