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.

All side release buckles and ladder locks are manufactured by Duraflex. Comfort and ergonomics depend heavily on the user’s body type; nobody is the same. At 5’11, 155lbs, this pack fits me perfectly. The shoulder strap and back padding system is all linked to a unique, lightweight steel rail system with webbing straps

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.

While at first it seems like it’s just a dry bag with straps, it’s actually more sophisticated. The camera has thin metal frame which in practice makes the bag feel just like a normal, high quality hiking rucksack. I find the padding firm but comfortable, with plenty of air space for ventilation. The back straps are cleverly adjustable for torso length, and so dialing in the perfect fit is easy with this bag

Strap

There are three sets of compression straps. Two horizontal adjustable straps on the front/sides, and one on the vertical axis that affects the top or bottom of the pack. The horizontal compression straps are length and height adjustable via ladder locks. They are also removable thanks to laser-cut slots paired with T-hooks
