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.

Tortuga Setout Divide Backpack

(1/1)

Plus, the Osprey is unable to stand upright on its own (due to not having a flat bottom) and the Tortuga can. Thus, making it easy to put the bag down on the floor when not carrying it. -comfortable carry-on bag that is designed as a minimal backpack. Can be incognito from budget airlines and can blend into a crowd of people in a city without looking like a tourist

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.

Tortuga Setout Divide Backpack

(1/1)

We like to say that the Setout Divide is what the Homebase should have been... We think that Tortuga has really learned a lot and upped their game when it comes to this smaller pack

Compartment

Tortuga Setout Divide Backpack

(1/1)

And one last thing on this laptop compartment... We really like it, but we do wish that there was some weather resistant or aquaguard YKK zippers used, just for some additional moisture protection for your tech

Carry-on

Tortuga Setout Divide Backpack

(1/1)

came off. With really no effort from us at all—they just popped off as we were putting the bag on. Weird.

Size

Tortuga Setout Divide Backpack

(1/2)

As someone else noted, I think you’re going to have trouble going any larger than 27/28L if you still want it to fit underseat, and that’s going to limit the laptop space size you can get away with.

Strap

Tortuga Setout Divide Backpack

(1/1)

Though the Osprey had a better harness/waist strap system, but for the size of bag, the Tortuga's removable waist straps works just fine. Most times I don't even use the waist straps unless I know I will be walking for over 20+ minutes. Plus, the Osprey is unable to stand upright on its own (due to not having a flat bottom) and the Tortuga can. Thus, making it easy to put the bag down on the floor when not carrying it
