Atlas Packs Athlete


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.

Patagonia Atom Pack


I bought this bag for commuting and short (1-2 night) trips, and absolutely love it! I got it to replace my old Jansport, as I wanted something smaller and with more breathability.

Patagonia Atom Pack


The straps are a pain point if the bag becomes too overloaded or the user is wearing a tank top (I did both this summer, and I ended up with rashes and sore shoulders). Like most backpacks, the weight is concentrated in the shoulders, instead of being more evenly distributed like larger packs (this killed me when I went up to Snow Lake the first time).
