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.

Gregory Citro 24 H2O Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

- The front top pocket has padding so you can put your phone there and not worry about it getting broken.

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.

Gregory Citro 24 H2O Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/4)

My boyfriend has the Gregory Citro 24 backpack in “spark orange”… I have the Gregory Juno 24 backpack in “lagoona blue”. Both of these are excellent for day hikes where you’re going to be out in nature for hours. Plenty of space to store everything you could possibly need. Plenty of water and plenty of space for food

Compartment

Gregory Citro 24 H2O Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/2)

Both good packs, but kept the Citro. Mainly for trimmer size and better pockets (I prefer multiple pockets, the Manta design was more about one large central storage area).

Carry-on

Gregory Citro 24 H2O Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

Equal: side mesh pockets accessible with pack on; both are comfortable, both sit on hips well and take pack weight off shoulders. Both good packs, but kept the Citro. Mainly for trimmer size and better pockets (I prefer multiple pockets, the Manta design was more about one large central storage area). I didn’t prefer (but wasn’t totally against) the Manta’s sideways-entry back panel pocket

Size

Gregory Citro 24 H2O Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/3)

however WHY are the outside mesh pockets not big enough to hold a water bottle? All of the previous citros have been big enough to hold a nalgene and this specific bag barely fits a standard plastic bottle. Super annoying and simply not practical. Makes me not even want to use the bag.

Strap

Gregory Citro 24 H2O Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/2)

- Front waist strap with pockets. They are kind of more on the side for me since I’m a big guy.
