WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE
One of the questions we get asked a lot, what's the difference between the packs? With the prior generation of packs answering this question was a lot easier. With the new generation the lines have blurred as the exterior sizes and types of gear the packs each hold, have overlapped and blurred like a bokeh.
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.
For this round of photos of the packs everything has been shot to scale. This means you can trust the sizing between all of the packs shown on the white background. Every shot requires detail and care and a ton of patience. A huge shoutout to @justinwadeorton for the excellent work
SIZE AND CAPACITY COMPARISON AND DETAILS
How the packs stack up based on specs...
ADVENTURE LARGE GRAY
The only pack that did not make the first delivery, the new Adventure dark gray in large.
Everyone that reserved this pack is waiting for delivery. Nobody has received this pack and I promise the very first packs to be shipped when the next delivery is made is this pack.
ADVENTURE LARGE BLACK
Production output was excellent and everyone that reserved received this pack from the Earlybirds through Fall Wave 2.
Fall Wave 3 reservations, your Adventure Pack black is on the next container.
ATHLETE LARGE GRAY-GREY
Production on the new gray-grey Athlete Packs is very limited. I wanted to make sure everyone liked the colorway and the first batch was small. As a result there was not enough of this pack on the first container for everyone that reserved.
All Earlybirds, Summer Waves 1, 2, 3, 4 and Fall Wave 1 Athlete Packs large gray-grey have shipped.
Fall Waves 2 & 3, your packs will ship out next delivery.
This page is new and designed to start the conversation. Please expect more details and content over time. If there is anything I need to add please let Pro Support know. Thanks you.
Please contact Pro Support right away so we can check your order status if you have any questions. Thanks so much!
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN SIZES
Medium vs. Large. What's the differerence between sizes?
ATHLETE LARGE YELLOW
The pack with the highest production output for the first delivery was the Athlete Pack yellow large.
Everyone that reserved this pack in all of the waves has had their pack shipped. Of note: This was the only pack to have production output hit 100%. This means there are zero of this pack available to reserve ;)
ATHLETE LARGE BLACK
Out of all of the packs, the large Athlete in black had the most challenging first production. As you per the Dirty Pack Updates there was a lot of drama with this SKU including a change to the torso length.
As a result some of you in the early waves pushed out for the standard length pack while many of you went with the slightly smaller frame.
*Earlybirds, Summer Waves 1, 2, 3 & 4 packs have shipped.
Fall Waves 1, & 3, your packs are confirmed on the next container.
There will be very few of this pack available for reservation moving forward.
HIP BELTS ARE BACK IN STOCK
Hip belts are back in stock and we've got yours on hold here at the shop. If we owe you a hip belt please hit this link for our back-ordered hip belt page.

GEN 1 vs. GEN 2 PACKS
One of the best parts about having an Atlas Pack is our happy pack promise. This means your pack will be easy to repair and update via "firmware updates" for life. In this section we've listed all of the updates based on your pack.
A reservation is required for packs that are on the way. Your deposit is fully refundable and equal to 50% of the purchase price. The final payment covers the balance plus shipping.
How will I know when to make my final payment?
You will get an email. The site will also be updated with the details when it is time. Once you have been notified you will have 5 days to pick your pack and make your final payment. Please understand we cannot hold packs based on reservations. Only the final payment secures your pack and delivery.
Explain more about the perks?
The perks program started as a way to say thank you and off-set the long wait times during the first production run. Due to the success of this program, limited time perks will be included with in-stock packs as well as future reservations. Perks points work like gift cards and can be used to unlock any of the items from our Cargo Accessory line.

GEN 2 PACKS: Simplified sizing to 20mm.
GEN 1 PACKS: Woo-Jin buckles and pulls.

GEN 1 PACKS: Multiple colors from black, to limestone (light gray) and dark gray. Each pack had different colors based for belt, pack model and colorway.
