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.

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.

Osprey Airporter LZ - Medium

(1/1)

That said, when I take it hiking this summer, I think it will "absorb" my rolled up inflatable mattress quite nicely, in which case it will end up being perfectly sized. But just for the pack alone, it was "sloshing around" inside of it quite a bit. Which leads to minor issue #2, which is that this thing is awkward as heck to carry with a full pack inside of it. Slinging it over your shoulder is worthless: It will bang around your knees

Osprey Airporter LZ - Medium

(1/1)

So this gets 2 Stars from me and here’s why. It gets more than 1 because it did the job required: protect my pack, keep it in good order while on a plane. Job done, my pack was protected, that’s what it was supposed to do and yes I’ll use it again. Here’s why it only gets 2 stars: first, sizing is way off

Strap

Osprey Airporter LZ - Medium

(1/2)

Looking for something to protect my pack from being dragged while shipping it, this literally is made for it! The shoulder strap is really nice too!
