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.

Patagonia Black Hole 25L Travel Pack

(1/1)

I have the Black Hole 25L, purchased last year. I have taken on a couple short trips and like the setup, features, and the durability. I will say if you are not an experienced one-bagger you might find it a little small. I think it's a great bag but a little on the narrow side and the top loading makes things a little tight

Strap

Patagonia Black Hole 25L Travel Pack

(1/1)

Attached to the shoulder straps is a standard sternum strap that can be positioned on one of five loops, depending on wherever it best supports you and the weight you’re carrying. This bag holds about 25L of gear, which makes it more of an in-between size, meaning you may or may not find this sternum strap necessary—either way, it’s there if you need it, and we’ve found it to improve the overall carry during our testing.
