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.

Oakley kitchen sink

There is no better feeling than arriving at the office dressed smartly without a sweaty back. The great breathability not only makes the Kitchen Sink great for work but also means it can be used in any season, hot or cold, from the top of a mountain to the subway in NYC. Shoulder & Sternum Straps The first step of ensuring maximum carrying comfort with a backpack is getting the shoulder straps to fit you perfectly. The Oakley Kitchen Sink comes with highly adjustable shoulder straps that work for both tall and shorter people

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.

Oakley kitchen sink

Side pockets are large enough to hold 2 bottles (20 oz) of water each, with no problem. With the chest strap and waist belt it is very comfortable to wear with a moderately load for a hike.

Compartment

Oakley kitchen sink

(1/2)

In this busy day and age, it’s becoming more and more important to save time where we can. There simply isn’t time to be rooting around your backpack to find a pen or USB stick that’s slowly sunk to the bottom. Does the Oakley Kitchen Sink Backpack have all the storage needs for our busy lives of today? Yes, it sure does, and here’s why. Main Compartment The main compartment of the Oakley Kitchen Sink is accessed by unfastening the metal buckles, opening the lid, and then opening a zipper

Shoulder & Sternum Straps The first step of ensuring maximum carrying comfort with a backpack is getting the shoulder straps to fit you perfectly. The Oakley Kitchen Sink comes with highly adjustable shoulder straps that work for both tall and shorter people. They are made to be breathable and are padded to ensure maximum comfort. The shoulder straps are also quite wide to make sure they don’t dig into a groove on your shoulders and cause discomfort

Size

Oakley kitchen sink

(1/1)

It is too large for everyday use but too small for travel. It does not compete with hiking backpacks for day hikes because it is too heavy for that. The top pocket is too small for being useful, it's even hard to fit large sunglasses into it. The front pocket (you can see it by the flap on pictures) is only accessible when the buckles are open and the top is folded away because there is a zipper that runs around the pocket underneath the flap and it is really high on both sides - why to do this? If you can not get into the pocket without all those operations then you are as good getting into the main compartment

Strap

Oakley kitchen sink

(1/3)

They are made to be breathable and are padded to ensure maximum comfort. The shoulder straps are also quite wide to make sure they don’t dig into a groove on your shoulders and cause discomfort. The sternum strap connects with a plastic buckle and is very easy to open and close. This strap takes some pressure off your shoulders and is key to maximum comfort
