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.

Pacsafe Citysafe CX Anti-Theft Mini Travel Pack - Women's

(1/2)

I have been pleasantly surprised at the comfort riding in the heat; I haven't actually noticed much difference compared to my dedicated bike-commuting pack that has an integrated suspension system to hold it away from your back. I'm guessing this has to do with the low profile of the Pacsafe Vibe that keeps it from totally covering your whole back. I'm 5' 9" and a lean build and have found the pack very comfortable. The laptop pouch (which doubles to hold your hydration bladder) securely holds a 13-14" laptop with great padding

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.

Pacsafe Citysafe CX Anti-Theft Mini Travel Pack - Women's

(1/1)

However, as a hiking backpack this bag leaves a bit to be desired. The straps offer cross-body stabilization, but minimal padding. The bag also lacks external loops for additional gear/trekking pole attachment.

Compartment

Pacsafe Citysafe CX Anti-Theft Mini Travel Pack - Women's

(1/1)

You can keep other documents or small items in the two compartments, however, the pack does not really expand to fit thicker/wider items (I tried to stuff my lunch tupperware containers in it but they barely fit). The side pockets can be used to fit narrow water bottles, though don't expand much to fit wider bottles. There is a waist strap but it gets more in the way than actually helps with carrying the pack, as the pack is probably small enough that the waist strap is not needed.

Carry-on

Pacsafe Citysafe CX Anti-Theft Mini Travel Pack - Women's

(1/1)

I am beyond thrilled with this purchase. My main purpose for this backpack is our upcoming trip to Europe. I wanted something that was both functional and stylish as it would replace my purse.

Strap

Pacsafe Citysafe CX Anti-Theft Mini Travel Pack - Women's

(1/3)

The gold zippers and accents are great and the laptop pocket perfectly fits my MacBook. My favorite thing is probably the luggage strap on the back. It allows you to hook it over the handle of a carry-on, which is insanely useful. The only thing that took a bit of getting used to is the zipper, as it has a metal frame to give it structural integrity - that said, once you get used to it, it is great
