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 Venturesafe EXP45

(1/1)

They do not have the better method of the load pulls at the top. I did not find this a problem in comfort. The straps can be adjusted fairly easily once you become acquainted with the positions of the strap pulls. The sternum strap is nice enough but could be wider

Compartment

Pacsafe Venturesafe EXP45

(1/1)

The Pacsafe EXP45 is way more a plus than a negative, but it does have a lot of room for improvement in two obvious and important aspects. That outside compartment is due for a redesign on the length of the zippers for much better access and visibility as to what you have in there. The backside, the straps need to have a place to hide, easily, and quickly. I suggest a hidden cover for the straps like Osprey has done so well and effectively

Carry-on

Pacsafe Venturesafe EXP45

(1/1)

Some of my fellow travelers had to check in their wheeled carry-ons because the plane was full. But, they did not ask me to check in my back pack. So glad because the purpose of the carry-on was to have an extra change of clothes and all of the personal items that I did not want to do without if they lost my luggage. The outer compartment is accessed from the top and has lots of pockets and such to keep you organized

Strap

Pacsafe Venturesafe EXP45

(1/1)

When you have the two shoulder straps stuffed into their channels, I cannot get the hip straps into their slots. If you can, would you please show us a video? Simply not easy and a royal pain. Should not be a pain point to do this. Again, I go back to the choice to have a cover over this or do a better job of making those hideaway channels easier to use
