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.

Vertx Ready Pack 2.0

(1/1)

All logos on the bag are extremely subtle and I like that. It took me a few minutes looking it over to find them all. Over all though it’s extremely well made, it is extremely comfortable, and hides my pistol well. All of my gripes are minor and this is my favorite backpack

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.

Vertx Ready Pack 2.0

(1/2)

I think these are unisex, but I use a vertx ready pack 2.0 for EDC, small hikes with the fam on local trails, etc. Takes a beating and has a nice belt and sternum strap. Also more colors than black and camo like most bags

Compartment

Vertx Ready Pack 2.0

(1/1)

Moving to the main compartment you will see the bulk of the primary storage capacity of the pack’s 20 liters. A laptop sleeve easily holds a 14 inch laptop, and while the specs note it will hold a 15 inch I think that would be stretching it (literally). A few horizontal tool sleeves and a mesh admin pocket round out the main compartment. Everything is backed in loop fabric for adding additional Velcro pouches if desired

Carry-on

Vertx Ready Pack 2.0

(1/1)

Materials, workmanship, and attention to detail are excellent throughout. All seams, zippers, etc are very well done, as is overall appearance. I particularly like that strap keepers are provided to keep things neat and tidy. Overall design and flexibility is very, very good

Size

Vertx Ready Pack 2.0

(1/1)

I don’t love how heavy it is for its size and the capacity of the main compartment. But, there are other similar options available from Vertx which are larger, in the event you need something like this for school and carry a lot of binders, notebooks, or textbooks.
