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.

REI Co-op Flash 22 Print Pack

(1/1)

I got this at the last sale. Used it everyday last week out hiking. It is soft & easy to wear for the person who does not carry lots of heavy stuff. I usually carry camera, binoculars, bird book, lunch, and a jacket

Hiking

Atlas Packs Athlete

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 Flash 22 Print Pack

(1/3)

I am obsessed with this pack. Got mine in 2018 after deciding to hike a 14'er while on vacation in Colorado and I have been in love ever since. I have a fairly petite frame (5'2", 135LB, 16 inch torso) and this fits me perfectly. I have a girlfriend who is 5'9" and it fits her perfectly as well due to how well all the straps adjust

REI Co-op Flash 22 Print Pack

(1/1)

The side pocket is several inches shorter. This is enough of a difference that when I pick up the pack, my water often falls out.

Strap

REI Co-op Flash 22 Print Pack

(1/1)

Nice little padding on the straps. Even when in 100+ degree heat for 9+ hours, helped to keep my back cool and wicked away sweat. Definitely waterproof. Overall a nice upgrade from the previous model!
