HOW TO PICK YOUR ATLAS PACK

PICKING THE Right pack

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR ATLAS PACK

Understanding how things are different helps explain how things are best used. Much like a 70-200 and 24-105, there is an overlap and a distinction is the role each lens plays based on the focal length. The packs work much the same way and this page covers the comparisons and the overlap. Let me know what questions you have...

Things to think about

  • How much space do I need for everything else?

    That's the best part. When you don't need the liters, packs will pack down to what you have inside them. In this case both the Athlete and the Adventure can be packed / compressed down to half in size. The Athlete around 20 liters, the Adventure around 35.

  • How much space do I need for camera gear?

    Both packs will hold plenty of gear. How they go about doing this is different and the differences are important. The Athlete has a shallow camera core and bodies with battery grips are designed to fit tight and will rest above the dividers. In comparison, the Adventure packs more like a traditional camera bag with the benefit of not having zipper or ICU in the way of your gear.

  • WHICH PACK IS BETTER FOR AIRLINE TRAVEL?

    Given the fact that smaller is better when it comes to airline travel, the Athlete Pack will work best and will easily fit under a seat. For its part, the Adventure Pack will readily fit overhead and can in a pinch fit under the seat.

IS ATLAS IS CAMERA BAG OR HIKING PACK?

A camera bag with lots of expandable space for non-camera 

When you buy a camera bag you are selecting a size based on liters. When you buy an Atlas Pack, the size is based on torso length / height and the liters range from 20-40 with the Athlete and 35-60 with the Adventure.

LET's talk about liters...

  • How much is 20-40 liters?

    20-25 liters is enough for all your camera gear, a tech pouch, lunch, a laptop and a few layers. At this size the pack will look and feel small. Once you hit 30 the pack looks about half-way full. Once you hit 40 the pack looks built out and large.

  • How much is 35-60 liters?

    35 liters is a lot of space and offers tons of options for camera gear plus food and/or clothing for overnight. Once you hit 45, the Adventure starts to fill out and looks about half-way full. Once you hit 55+ the pack looks built out and large.
