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.

Mystery Ranch 3 Day Assault CL

(1/1)

Sometimes I forgot that I had it. This pack is very comfortable and lightweight. I had a camel, 4 pouches of kool-aid, 550 chord, personal effects, and a tackle box and I never felt like I had to shift the bag around to give my shoulders a break. I carried this pack for close to 6 hours that day and it performed greatly

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.

Mystery Ranch 3 Day Assault CL

(1/2)

I took this out on a ten mile hike over a somewhat short mountain. It performed adequately. Overall, I feel like I'm a bit large to use this pack. The straps of the waist belt aren't sewn in, just threaded through buckles, and both ends pulled free while I hiked

Compartment

Carry-on

Mystery Ranch 3 Day Assault CL

(1/1)

It arrived and I took it out the next day. I travel around town and out of state often and finding a EDC that I can commute with and rely on is hard to find. They are always either too small or just too big or the carry space is just not thought out right. This bag changes things

Strap

Mystery Ranch 3 Day Assault CL

(1/2)

I gave these molle straps a good pull and there was zero tension ripping or tearing from the stitch. Previous to this I had an old 2015 USGI XL assault bag 2 day that I was attached to the hip to. but GI standards changed so its a hard bag to find with the metal yoke system still in it. The Mystery Ranch bag was identical with improvements! Buying some of the other models for my outdoor hiking camping adventures
