Atlas Packs Athlete
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.
The Hynes Eagle is a humble unassuming bag but it’s a decently comfortable bag to carry and even packed out, it retains the ability to squish & squash a bit. I have used it as successfully as an under seat item on domestic flights.
Different sizes were developed for all kind of travel. The Mundo Carry-on 38 is perfect for short business trips or extended weekends. With hand luggage dimensions, the travel pack can be easily stowed, no matter what your choice of transport – train, plane or jitney. The plethora of pockets will keep all the necessities for a short trip tidy: work documents, clothes, food, your electronics etc
Because of the way it’s designed, when fully packed out the Trexad Mundo ends up having too much depth to meet carry-on requirements and I very much doubt I could jam it under the seat on an international flight. But the dealbreaker is the straps are uncomfortable. My husband doesn’t have any issues with the straps on this bag but they don’t work well on my smaller frame.
With the Trexad Mundo, I have to pack the Kånken empty and laid flat while my other inflight items have to be distributed throughout the bag. This is not as convenient as with the other two bags where it’s just a matter of pulling the fully packed Kånken out of the larger bag.
