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.

Although the vest straps were clearly not designed with women's chests in mind, they're still very comfortable and the pack fits me like a glove otherwise. I kept the pack.

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.

I made a bunch of other gear upgrades this winter, to the tune of several pounds shaved off of my former ~11lb BW. I've been thinking a lot about how UL fits into my actual hobby of backpacking. My favorite UL techniques are the cheap/free ones that involve bringing less shit & not buying fancy gear for the sake of fanciness. When I assembled my kit a few years ago before hiking the PCT, I was new to the hobby and definitely not ready to spend $$$ on a fragile shelter that seemed fussy to set up
