GEN1 vs. GEN2 HOW TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE?

Telling the difference is easy. Just look at the ATLAS logo on the front.

If the logo is very big and easy to read, then you have a GEN1 pack. If the logo smaller and tonal making it harder to see, you have a GEN2 pack.

FYI: GEN1 packs were sold prior to 2021. GEN2 packs have been sold since 2022.

Did you know you can trade-in again and again?

I WANT TO TRADE AND LIVE OUTSIDE THE USA. CAN I?

Yes, you can still do a trade-in. There will just be some additional costs for shipping. Please inquire via chat.

CAN I TRADE-IN AGAIN AND AGAIN?

Yes. You can trade-in the pack you are getting for another trade-in credit on a new pack. The cycle can repeat and repeat and will not dilute out.

Said another way, when chose to trade-in your next pack, the original purchase price is based on the full price, not the price you pay which includes the trade-in credit.

WHAT DO I SHIP BACK TO ATLAS PACKS?

Dividers are optional. The frame is always required. The rain-cover and hip belt are ONLY required for packs in GREAT condition.

WHAT IF I DIDN'T BUY DIRECT FROM ATLASPACKS.COM?

Packs purchased directly from Atlas Packs (via site or events) will receive back more in trade when compared to packs purchased from third party sites or retailers and can be traded-in at anytime.

Packs purchased from third party sites, retailers or second hand, will receive back 75% of the original purchase price and must be in good to great condition to be eligible for trade.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER MY OLD PACK IS RETURNED?

To a certain extend this is a trust exercise and the final trade-in value will be determined once your old pack has been returned.

All packs will be inspected upon return and if the condition is materially different from the condition represented at trade, the difference will be either credited or invoiced.

Said another way, if your old pack looks better in person than in photos, you will receive back a refund for the difference. If the condition of your pack is worse in person and in the photos, then the difference will be invoiced and will need to be paid.

WHAT ABOUT ANY PARTS AND ADD-ONS?

At this time only packs can be traded-in for credit on a new pack. If you purchased any parts or accessories they have no trade-in value. This policy may change over time.

I GOT A DISCOUNT, DEAL, REFUND, OR PAID EXTRA FOR SHIPPING, DUTY, PARTS, ETC., HOW DOES THIS COUNT?

It does not. Only packs are accepted for trade-in credit and the purchase price will include any discount, credits, refunds and exclude all other costs or charges related to taxes, duties, shipping, parts, accessories or other. If you have any questions regarding this or other policy please contact via chat.
