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 Trail 40 Pack - Women's

(1/1)

Incredibly comfortable to wear for long hikes, can store your phone in the hip belt pocket for easy access. The included rain cover has definitely come in handy and is quickly accessible. Love the design of this bag and rarely leave home without it.

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.

So, for my very first pack, I'd say it's pretty good. It's especially great for the price! I have not used it yet for an overnighter, so that might change my opinion, but for everything I've done so far, it's been great.

.. I'm new to this) and after about 9 months finally realized after a couple months of complaining (oops, ha!) about it not getting tight enough to sit where I needed it, that they made a smaller size. Thank goodness for REI! I brought it in and traded it for a small

Strap

REI Co-op Trail 40 Pack - Women's

(1/1)

I wanted more than a regular backpack, but not the full blown version. The chest strap and padded belt straps are just the ticket. You might want to try before you buy.
