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.

Hyperlite Mountain Gear 3400 Southwest

(1/2)

I already have a really light weight set up and didn’t really need the comfort of a bigger back pack or padding. So I got rid of my older atmos for a hyper lite southwest 3400, way simpler bag and less bulky and dropped almost 3 pounds in weight for me. Super comfortable for me mostly because I don’t have a lot of weight in there anyways. Just depends how you feel

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.

Hyperlite Mountain Gear 3400 Southwest

(1/2)

Also, the strap on the top of the pack that goes over the top to the back strap is too long when the pack is not very full, like on a dayhike. So it flops around annoyingly.

went to colombia for three weeks. great pack for a carry-on. i only travel via one carry-on bag; makes travel much easier. used it on a few day hikes as well

Hyperlite Mountain Gear 3400 Southwest

(1/1)

o This is on the heavier end of the spectrum in terms of mainstream UL packs black adds more weight as well.

Strap

Hyperlite Mountain Gear 3400 Southwest

(1/2)

The shoulder straps and frame stays were not aligned at all with everything a half to full inch off side to side. It just had sloppy stitching all around, IMO. I also don't think the backpack is built well enough to hold heavier loads, like I would have thought. I would have to sew on my own load lifter straps
