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.

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.

REI Co-op Diamond Pin

(1/1)

Something that started as a fun hobby and way to get into the great outdoors can get overwhelming real quick. So I gathered all my favorites for you here in one easy resource to help get you going. Everyone has different styles of backpacking (minimalists who want super lightweight gear, thru hikers who plan on being out for long stretches of time, and hikers dabbling in their first overnight trips who don’t want to break the bank). I’m a photographer who likes to go on several-day overnight trips, so lightweight gear that leaves room for heavy camera + lenses is where my priorities are
