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.

Gregory Zulu 30 Pack - Men's

(1/2)

The slight curvature of the pack frame barely affects the interior space. I found the capacity good for long day hikes. However, it's too small for overnight trips. The zippers could be smoother

Gregory Zulu 30 Pack - Men's

(1/1)

This is my second review with over a use and am happy with the Zulu. I’d recommend The Zulu over the osprey stratos because they carry better and have a much more enforced hip pad.

Strap

Gregory Zulu 30 Pack - Men's

(1/1)

I compared it to my trusted Arcteryx Kata 37 of many hundreds of miles with more weight as well and could see the should straps were sewn in at an angle and spread out further then Kata 37 so the leading edge of the strap dug into my collar bones coupled with the packs hip belt is not designed to carry much weight like the Kata 37 so the weight pulled down onto my collar bone. Nice features,etc but bad design for me. Odd and funny is I hiked a long hike with a CamelBak Fourteener I had tried and had no such issues. It still wasn't as comfortable as my Kata and didn't fit as well my big frame but I did not get the intense collar bone pain
