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.

RAINS Buckle Backpack Mini

(1/1)

We walk away from the Rains Backpack with a few key take-aways, not least of which are the less-than-ideal shoulder straps and its fiddly adjustment, the subpar internal visibility for this black variant, and the interior pocket’s zipper that was prone to jamming. It’s not all bad, though, as we still think that the styling’s appeal still holds up.

Strap

RAINS Buckle Backpack Mini

(1/1)

It might be nice for the straps to be slightly tighter and for the bag to sit slightly higher when I bike, but it works fine as is. The only concern I had when purchasing was worry that the straps would be uncomfortable, but I've found them to be fine. Of course not as comfortable as a thick gel padded strap, but they don't dig or irritate me in any way like I had expected they might, and I've carried some fairly heavy things inside.
