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.

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 Tropos

(1/2)

Stiff piping outlines the Tropos’ back panel, making it highly-structured. It’s also equipped with an AirSpeed™ ventilation system that creates some space between your back and the actual back panel to increase airflow. We’ve had this bag on our backs for hours at a time while hiking, and while some back sweat is inevitable, the mesh and suspension have been doing a fantastic job of keeping us cool and comfortable.

Compartment

Osprey Tropos

(1/1)

the main compartment! At 34L, the Tropos has all the space for the gear you need daily or enough room for a shorter trip. Plus, its horseshoe-style opening offers a convenient amount of visibility and ease of access to everything inside.

Size

Osprey Tropos

(1/2)

This pack is on the larger side and looks rugged enough for the outdoors, but still refined enough for more urban environments (although it’s a little overkill as a daypack). We’re not surprised with its 82% score on our Instagram poll regarding its look, as this bag adopts a cleaner, sleeker take that most would appreciate.

Strap

Osprey Tropos

(1/3)

You also have compression straps on both sides of the pack, toward the top and at the bottom. The buckles that secure the top compression straps are hidden by a fabric welt, promoting a clean look that we’re fans of.
