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.

Raptor 6 osprey

(1/1)

This goes back to my high school days and musty army navy surplus backpacks. But recently, my wife and I went to REI to get hydration packs for XC skiing in Central Oregon. The salesman described and showed us differences between Osprey and another major brand. I appreciated his comments, liked the looks of the Raptor 14, and it felt comfortable

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.

Raptor 6 osprey

(1/1)

I spend a lot of time in the saddle each week (almost daily). Also, this is not the first hydration backpack I’ve owned. Like many other reviewers, I owned a multitude of hydration packs over the years, primarily CamelBak and a few lesser-known brands from big box retail stores. ADDITIONALLY In this series of Osprey hydration pack there are four models

Compartment

Raptor 6 osprey

(1/1)

Might be nicer if it was wide enough for 2 tubes + tools (I jump from one bike to another often). The last features I like a ton are the small goodies compartments on the belt region (can easily store 2, maybe 3, granola bars on each side. Also, massively love the magnetic mount for the water tube; works perfectly. The helmet grabber on top is also useful when packing for the long trips and keeping it all in one spot
