Let's talk about size and fit for the Atlas Athlete Pack
Small enough to go everywhere!
At just 7in / 18.5cm in depth, the Atlas Athlete is the world's thinnest camera pack.
EXTERIOR SIZE: 20 Liters
This is the default size for the Athlete Pack. Plenty of space for all your camera gear plus lunch, layers a laptop and a few extra items. At this size the Athlete Pack is easily small enough to go under the seat.
EXTERIOR SIZE: 30 Liters
30liters of gear brings the Athlete Pack to about half-way full. At this size the pack has started to fill out and up slightly and you can start to see the differences in the size of the pack. At this size the Athlete Pack will still fit under the seat.
EXTERIOR SIZE: 40 Liters
Given how small the Athlete Pack can be, it holds an incredible amount of gear. Setup at this size there's about 30 liters of non-camera and 10 liters of camera gear and for travel this pack will need to go overhead. Even at 40 liters, the pack easily meets cabin standards.
SIZE BASED ON HEIGHT
+ If you are 5’8 / 1.7m or below, the medium size pack typically fits best.
+ If you are taller than 5’11/1.8m the large size pack typically fits best.
SIZED BASED ON TORSO
+ If your torso length is shorter than 18" / 45.5cm, the medium size pack typically fits best.
+ If your torso length is longer than 18"/45.5cm the large size pack typically fits best.
Torso length provides the most accurate measurement for backpack fitting.
HOW TO MEASURE
1. Cut a piece of string to exactly 18" / 45.5cm.
2. Hold the top of the string on your C7 vertebrae and drop the bottom end.
3. Now feel all the way down to where string ends. It will fall either above or below your Iliac Center (essentially your love handles and where you rest your hands when you are putting your hands on your hips).
If the string goes past your love handles, that means your torso is shorter than 18" = medium size pack. If the string ends before your
love handles, that means your torso longer than 18" = large size pack.
Go shorter if in doubt, if the pack is too tall fitting will be a challenge and the weight will not distribute properly.
The tipping point between sizes (for both the Athlete and the Adventure Pack) is an 18"/45.5cm torso length.
