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.

Got a pop up 28 a few month ago as i just need a good comfortable day pack. Opening morning this past weekend, i was lucky enough to get a cow elk archery hunting. Though i had help for the pack out and someone to bring frame packs for the others to use to help, I was able to load up both front quarters on this pack no problem and it did an excellent job. I would have had no problem making 3 trips if needed with this pack to get it out myself

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.

The obvious upgrade/advantage is this pack is perfectly thought out to be a climbing specific pack. I put it through a very long and steep approach today and it performed beautifully.

I can then tight the shoulder straps, but this makes it really tight to take the pack on and off.

I will make them work for there intended uses. I have been looking for this answer for 30 years in something that actually fits. Hopefully we can buy the smaller pack without the frame soon.
