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.

Atlas Packs Athlete

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 Manta 24 Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/2)

I have an REI 40 liter pack that has a wider belt, and it's a nice feature. On the plus side: I don't use hiking poles, so I used one of the straps provided for them to hold a neck scarf to wipe my sweat, which worked fine. I very much like the small outside zipper pocket for frequently used items. The pack has several adjustment straps which allow you to tighten it down close to your back, which stabilizes the load and prevents it from jiggling around, especially on ascents

Love the fit, love the pocket selection, love the bladder, love the rain cover it comes with, absolutely, deliriously, ridiculously, in love with this back pack.

Size

Osprey Manta 24 Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

The waist belt is narrow, with minimal padding. I weigh 197 pounds. It might be fine for a smaller hiker, but the small belt gets tangled with my pants belt. I prefer a wider belt, maybe 1 and 1/2 inches thick

Strap

Osprey Manta 24 Hydration Pack - Men's

(1/1)

.. I don't like it looping down and across my chest or have it balling up inside the pack so I ended up cutting it to shorten it.
