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 Radial Bike Commuter Pack

(1/3)

Not only is this backpack comfortable & supportive for my back due to the frame & suspension but it is also very accommodating for my needs on my bike rides. As an IT professional that goes on an on-call rotation, it's also very accommodating for my laptop, wireless mouse, power cables, jacket and a few other items (e.g. - snacks, power bank, Swiss Army knife, etc

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 Radial Bike Commuter Pack

(1/2)

Osprey’s aware of this, and they’ve made sure to kit out the Radial with a harness system that’s more at home with hiking backpacks than typical day-to-day backpacks. It’s not quite as comprehensive as something like the one on the Salkan Backpacker where everything is padded like a racing seat. However, there’s still a ton of adjustability on the Radial to help you tune it to your needs.

Compartment

Osprey Radial Bike Commuter Pack

(1/1)

This makes a ton of sense because large ring pulls are handy for easier access to the main compartment, while slim pulls for the bottom rain fly pocket keep things low-profile.

Carry-on

Osprey Radial Bike Commuter Pack

(1/1)

The pack is just below the maximum possible size for airplane carry-on bags, which is great because I'm a fan of avoiding the checked luggage whenever possible.

Size

Osprey Radial Bike Commuter Pack

(1/1)

Some bags in the neighborhood of the Radial’s size feel floppy, but the good news is that’s not the case here.

Strap

Osprey Radial Bike Commuter Pack

(1/2)

The shoulder straps can be vertically adjusted through a clever anchor system. The top end of the shoulder straps forms a collar with toggles that thread through slots built into the sides of the floating back panel. There are five slots on each side, giving you a total of five levels of adjustments. By our testing, those with bigger builds among the Pack Hacker crew felt comfortable with the second topmost slot, while those with smaller builds felt more comfortable with the bottom two slots
