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.

ULA Circuit

(1/2)

As each mile, and day passed, the Circuit became more and more comfortable. By Oregon, my pack was a tried and true piece of gear, and I would trust it with any long hike. By Canada, the Circuit was an extension of my body, molded to me so perfectly, I didn’t realize the aluminum stay had snapped from repeated bending. Even with the main support gone with the broken stay, I still threw on my pack and kept hiking, comfortable with my Circuit

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.

ULA Circuit

(1/3)

I found that through out the day, I would be constantly adjusting the shoulder straps, load lifters and hip belt. The Circuit will not stay in one position, so you need to tweak the straps every now and then while hiking.

Carry-on

Size

ULA Circuit

(1/1)

I still use my ula circuit over Newer dyneema ($$$)options( it rides well). Just pick out something that fits your all your current gear, and yes that means a larger sized bag.

Strap

ULA Circuit

(1/1)

I had one of their packs and took it out for a test briefly, and found the shoulder straps were not really wide enough / padded enough for me. Went with a ULA Circuit.
