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.

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.

Timbuk2 Impulse Travel Pack - 45 Liters

(1/1)

Thankfully I can't recall it randomly coming undone while walking/hiking, and hopefully it stays that way. Anyways, thanks for a great product! I can see myself using this bag to go back to Iceland again to carry important photography gear while hiking because I know I can truly rely on it!

Compartment

Timbuk2 Impulse Travel Pack - 45 Liters

(1/1)

I really love all of the organizational compartments and how waterproof it is without requiring a rain cover option you have to fuss with. Sometimes when you're in the middle of a long cold hike, the last thing you want to do is stop and do more rain prep to keep going. I like that you can remove the straps to use it as a dufflebag if you need to check in the bag for planes. Only real complaint I have is that the little buckle locks sometimes do come undone! If anyone from the company reads this: heeeeelp

Hello! First time poster here. Looking to do my first big trip in a few weeks and I'm wanting to find a good carry on/travel backpack. I've had my eye on the TimBuk2 Impulse backpack 45L. Just wanting to know if anyone has purchased this bag and what their thoughts are on it!

Timbuk2 Impulse Travel Pack - 45 Liters

I like that you can remove the straps to use it as a dufflebag if you need to check in the bag for planes. Only real complaint I have is that the little buckle locks sometimes do come undone! If anyone from the company reads this: heeeeelp. Please upgrade this! It isn't the worse thing in the world, but more of an annoyance. It has come undone on me a few times only, most likely after it gets snagged on something and loosens
