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.

I called the company and was given a comforting response. She said no worries it will wash off and if he wears long sleeves he'll be fine. My response "bless her heart". I know from researching they are great bags especially for the money

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 Kestrel 48

(1/1)

I couldn’t reach my water bottle, because I had them upright and didn’t realize they have the side entry for bottles! All user error there! I recommend this pack for people who want to carry lighter loads and go on shorter overnight treks.

Carry-on

Osprey Kestrel 48

(1/1)

Perfect carry on backpack. Just did a 15 day trip to Nepal and the backpack worked perfect. The rain guard also came in handy when backpack was on top of suv while raining. Everyone's cloths were wet but mine were still nice and dry

Size

Osprey Kestrel 48

(1/1)

This is undeniably a very nice bag. I can't argue with the look, the comfort and the quality, HOWEVER, this bag is nowhere near 48L. Not even close. It's more like 30 or 35L

Osprey Kestrel 48

(1/1)

[Opsrey Kestrel]([URL REMOVED] you can run straps through those two vertical lines with gray hooks. The rubber toggles also can be used to strap across the pack.
