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.

It’ll save you from crying out in frustration (not that we’re speaking from experience, of course).

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 Packs Daylite 6L Sling

(1/3)

All in all, we’ve enjoyed testing the Osprey Daylite Sling. Although, on longer hikes or day trips we usually end up wishing for a full-on daypack instead. Despite the padding on the strap of the Daylite Sling, it gets uncomfortable after a few hours (especially since its full weight dumps into your right shoulder). That said, it’s great for those smaller excursions when you need to carry more than your pockets allow, but not enough to justify a backpack

Carry-on

Osprey Packs Daylite 6L Sling

(1/1)

Original review: I haven’t traveled with this yet, but I have several long trips coming up. I like having small bags for flights so I can leave my belt in there, and have my pockets empty so I can scoot through security easily (I hate it when people just don’t understand, empty everything out of your pockets!!!). I’m picky as I used to design and was in charge of inventory of packs and bags for a major outdoor company years ago and so I went over this bag and found nothing wrong with it as far as how it was made. I am 6’3” and around 240 lbs and this bag when the strap is maxed out rides where it is comfortable, my wife is very petite and when adjusted right she likes it too

Osprey Packs Daylite 6L Sling

(1/1)

This was one of the best purchases for our trip, and I'm excited to bring my new BFF (the Daylite sling) back home to the US where I'm looking forward to using it on day hikes in the city and in the country too!
