Atlas Packs started as a black box project, our only goal, to create a world class line of travel and hiking backpacks. In 2018, after more than 3 years of industry and community focused R&D, we started selling packs to the public.
we create designs that solve real world problems. that's it!
If you value quality over quantity and attention to detail over dealers and distribution then you should consider owning an Atlas Pack. Atlas Packs are produced and imported from our factory in the Philippines. Each run made by hand, over 275 steps in the line.
The goal at Atlas Packs has been the same since day one. To listen and learn and make small incremental updates and changes with every run. Please checkout the updates section for each of the packs and learn about all of the improvements we have made over the years because of you!

ATLAS vs. COMPETITIVE BRANDS
Let's breakout some of the key differences between Atlas and the features and functionality you find on camera bags from competitors.
Extra Cost to Pack Camera Gear
Yes - You configure your camera gear inside a Core Insert that then goes inside the camera bag. The cost is extra and the price is based on size.
Different Size Camera Core Inserts
Yes - You just need to buy different size Core Inserts when you want to carry more or less camera gear
Expandable Outer Shell Size
No - Camera bags are sized based on liters and come in fixed liter increments (20, 30, 40 liters, etc..) This limits how much both camera and non-camera gear you can bring.
Dedicated Space for NON-Camera Gear
Limited -- Camera bags have very little room for non-camera gear, it's why they are called camera bags and not hiking / camera packs.
Atlas Packs' have a front shell that expands out for non-camera gear when you need it and compresses down when you don't. This is why Atlas is more of a pack than a bag.
Dividers that Spoon Camera Gear
Requires Pressure Fitting
Yes - The zipper actually keeps all the Insert from falling out. This is why the zipper is inset to your camera gear. Pressure fitting resulting in a fundamental compromise to a pack’s load carry ability and access to gear.
Custom Fitted Overbuilt Hiking Grade Hip Belt
No - Atlas Pack is the only brand that truly values hip belts. Available in multiple styles, sizes and colorways so you can go all day long!
Removable Hip Belt
Sometimes - Camera bags typically have sewn-in hip belts that torque and twist under weight.
Sewn-In Hip Belt
Most - Camera bags typically have sewn-in hip straps that are floppy and without any structure. These easily twist and torque under load. (much like the Traveler's belt)
Hiking Grade Overbuilt Hip Belt (in your size)
Special Shoulder Straps for Women
Yes - Camera bags with shoulder straps designed for women are needed to help offset pressure on the front of your chest because of how much camera bags "hang back". With a properly sized and fitted pack and hip belt you can position the weight higher up and help to elevate the pressure on the parts of your body that requires a curved shoulder harness. #straightisbest
Water Resistant Shell
Removable Frame - Rucksack Mode
No - While you can remove frames from some camera bags, removing the frame creates problems for your camera gear. Frames are required to keep all the core inserts in place. With the frame out of a traditional camera bag, the bag has no use case.
Weight Bearing Removable Frame
No - Camera gear is detached from the frame in camera bags and ICU's. It's just dead weight and why camera gear feels so heavy.
Yes - The upcoming iteration of the camera bag you are now thinking about purchasing will be launched next year and endorsed by the same influencers who introduced you to the current model - ugh!
