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.

Thule Covert DSLR Rolltop Backpack

..this is so important for me. It feels good! Also, there is a double layer compartment on the reverse side for laptops and tablets and is padded firmly to protect things nicely

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.

Thule Covert DSLR Rolltop Backpack

(1/1)

Pockets galore! The only downside is that it is a little heavy to be used as a hiking pack. About double the weight you would want it to be. But this bag will take a beating! I trekked 8k to see the Navy plane in Iceland while it rained the entire time. This bag is not waterproof but does have water resistance

Compartment

Carry-on

Thule Covert DSLR Rolltop Backpack

(1/1)

Cons: wish it had a rainfly for the price, also a hip belt that would help a lot for how big the bag is. Along with that some molle style hoops would be nice in different locations to use molle attachments.

Size

Thule Covert DSLR Rolltop Backpack

(1/2)

My only problem is how small the camera area is. For example i use the Thule Aspect for a day to day use and it can fit almost everything i need in the camera area when i go out (Nikon FF camera with a 70-200, 24-70 and even a 14-24) so my problem with the Thule Covert is that i cant't fit all this stuff in the camera compartment i even though of send it to someone to fix it for me because i would really like to use this bag as a Trekking bag for 2-3 days without long walks but being able to take all my camping, food, clothes plus camera stuff and i dont like the bags where is 100% camera space, i really like the side access for the camera area which is divided from the top. Please Thule have this in mind for a next backpack!

Strap

Thule Covert DSLR Rolltop Backpack

(1/1)

This is honestly an awesome urban camera bag. I have not used it as a hiking bag yet, however I have walked around the city for long periods of time with it - the straps are not the most comfortable, but if you have layers on it's totally fine. There is no waist strap so if that's important for you in terms of hiking, then this might not be for you. But if you're into a cool-looking, urban bag then check this out!
