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.

Regardless of what laptop size you manage to get in here, you can be sure your laptop is well cared for.

Compartment

Nomatic MCKINNON CAMERA PACK

(1/1)

It opens up from the right-hand side, and we’ve put our 16-inch MacBook Pro in here and were delightfully surprised at how much buffer there is on all sides. You have your standard false bottom for sure, but you get a good inch or two on the other sides as well. That’s apart from the good amount of padding this compartment has. It’s even spacious enough for a 17-inch laptop, though thicker gaming laptops might not go in

Carry-on

Nomatic MCKINNON CAMERA PACK

(1/1)

Plenty of convenient pockets for almost anything you can find a use for. The straps help absorb the weight of a full bag on your back and shoulders. So far, no issue bringing it on as a carry-on for a flight (United or Jetblue). I do recommend checking with your airline regarding carry-on policies

Size

Nomatic MCKINNON CAMERA PACK

(1/1)

I am wildly impressed with whoever engineered this bag to be able to fit an obnoxious amount of stuff in it and still look this slim - it's not bulky at all. I can fit more stuff in this bag than my previous camera bag (Lowpro Protactic 450) but the Mckinnon bag looks and feels much less bulky. Slow clap for whoever figured this out.

Strap

Nomatic MCKINNON CAMERA PACK

(1/1)

There’s also a simple sternum strap to keep things together. You have five points of top to bottom adjustment on each shoulder strap, giving you a fair degree of adjustability. They clip in easily on both sides, so you won’t have a hard time dialing in things to your liking.
