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.

Osprey Archeon 45 Pack - Men's

(1/1)

It is sizeable enough for camping out overnight or having a long day in the great outdoors and has plenty of pockets and zippers so all of your belongings are secure. It is on the pricier side for backpacks but quality is everything when it comes to comfort and safety.

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 Archeon 45 Pack - Men's

(1/1)

Plenty of storage, still incredibly lightweight and WELL-CONSTRUCTED and DESIGNED. It has been put to lots and lots of good use during this pandemic when taking to the trails is not only a pleasure but a sense of normalcy. It is sizeable enough for camping out overnight or having a long day in the great outdoors and has plenty of pockets and zippers so all of your belongings are secure. It is on the pricier side for backpacks but quality is everything when it comes to comfort and safety

Carry-on

Osprey Archeon 45 Pack - Men's

(1/2)

I don't bother with other backpack manufacturers anymore. Ospreys have been consistently good to me; their price premium is worth the quality and peace of mind to me, (though that equation won't be the same for everyone). The 45 is just the right size for an overnight/weekend trip, and it's great as a carry-on. It's adjustable enough that it works for my lanky 6'3" frame, and when you've dialed it in, it disappears in use

Size

Osprey Archeon 45 Pack - Men's

(1/1)

Perfect size for what I needed! I have a through hike size pack at 70 Liters but wanted a backpacker that fits as carryon for airline travel and easy stowage on train, bus, etc! Perfect size for long trips if you pack smart and the fact that the front opens all the way down makes packing and getting things out when fully loaded an ease! With less dangling in the outside, it also makes the traveling and stowage easy. 10 days in Italy- No problem!
