Description

We’re photographers just like you and have never understood why bag manufacturers seem focused purely on “holding camera gear” vs designing a solution for camera use.

  • ATLAS ATHLETE PACK FEATURES INCLUDE:
  • An industry first "Origami camera core". Allows camera section to be reconfigured between camera core and non-camera section of pack
  • 2L Water bladder pocket with dedicated tube routing through back of pack
  • Dedicated pocket for a 15" laptop
  • Custom fitted waistbelt (removable)
  • Aluminum frame / stay (removable)
  • The ultimate in comfort. Air vented mesh backpanel, overbuilt harness and suspension system
  • Meets carry-on standards
  • Front shell can expand from 5 - 30 liters
  • Lifetime Warranty
  • Designed for small to medium sets of gear
  • Incredibly thin profile, just 7" in depth
  • Draw string top allows for easy closure and access
  • Tripods can be securely stored on either side of the pack
  • Quickdraw hip pockets hidden into sides of waistbelt.

Camera bags are all giant boxes!  We wanted a thinner, more nimble design that holds weight close to the body and doesn’t impede movement in busy urban areas or while moving over terrain.

At "every day carry" size the pack is incredibly thin and measures just 7”/18cm deep. At this configuration the pack carries about 20L worth of gear. That’s enough room for ALL your camera gear PLUS a 15” laptop, snacks, ipad, jacket, water bladder and more...

And when you want to "get out of town", the front of the Athlete Pack can be expanded to store up to 30L of additional non-camera gear by releasing the side compression straps. FYI: The Athlete Pack she’ll measures approximately 40L and about 10L is reserved for the Origami Camera Core.

Other camera bag brands make you buy different size inserts such as ICU’s or camera cubes. These systems are expensive and poorly designed as they are detached from the structure of the bag.

Bags using ICU's require a “pressure fit”, resulting in a fundamental compromise to the pack’s load carry and limiting access to gear along the sides of the camera compartment.

With the Athlete Pack your camera gear is securely stored inside our patent pending Origami Camera Core. The Origami compartment is sown into the pack and accessible via unzipping the backpanel.

The top section of the Origami Camera Core can be changed to suit your needs. Push the pocket IN when you need more room for camera gear. Pull the pocket OUT when you need more room in the front of your pack.

The depth of the Origami Camera Core is ideal for mirrorless, micro 4/3 and small DSLR bodies such as a 5D or D800. Lenses can be mounted with these size camera bodies.

Lenses over 5" tall as well as gripped bodies and large DLSRs like a 1DX must be laid flat. Video cameras such as the FS5 or C200 can be stored (parts broken down).

We take great pride in our attention to detail and fitting photographers of all shapes and sizes. The Athlete Pack is designed for you from the ground up.
