Atlas Packs Athlete
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.
Let’s do a quick roll call: shoulder straps, load-lifters, sternum strap, and waist belt—all adjustable for the best fit possible. It can be a tad intimidating at first, like being presented with a bunch of knobs and dials on a newly bought paper copier. The upshot is that this degree of adjustability is really useful when you’re trying to get the most comfortable fit. We like to carry a lot of gear when we’re biking, and the last thing we want is it sloshing around our back like a sack of potatoes
I ride to work almost everyday at it doesnt feel good full, even with light stuff like say sweatshirt, change of clothes and laptop. also the waist straps should have padding.
