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.

Hiking

Atlas Packs Athlete

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

Gregory Tribute 55 Travel Pack - Women's

(1/1)

Cons that I found: hip belt has no pockets. While there are a lot of separated compartments all over this pack, it was lacking in the hip belt area. I also found the water bottle holder pockets to be woefully inadequate. Forget about toting anything larger than 750mL in those pockets, and even then I was always worried my Camelbak was going to fall out

Carry-on

Gregory Tribute 55 Travel Pack - Women's

(1/2)

If you are looking for a pack to go backpacking in the wilderness, this is not the pack you want. It is really intended for traveling by air and perhaps train if you then need to carry your luggage a bit of a distance and over terrain where a roll-aboard would not work well. For that it's a good pack. But it has no straps to attach any gear to it and you can't use the rain cover when wearing it

So someone with a smaller waist than me will not be able to tighten the belt strap as much as needed for good support.

Strap

Gregory Tribute 55 Travel Pack - Women's

(1/2)

But I had to put the shoulder straps almost as high as they would go (usually with packs I have the opposite problem, they barely go as low as I need them). But then the belt strap (well padded, thank you!) was almost as tight as it would go (about half an inch left) if I was not wearing a thick sweater or jacket. So someone with a smaller waist than me will not be able to tighten the belt strap as much as needed for good support.
