THE ATLAS ADVENTURE PACK
DEEP CAMERA CORE | 50-70 LITER EXPANDABLE SHELL
When we started designing the Adventure Pack we prioritized around the following concepts: Supporting large sets of gear, efficient workflow and organization, ease of use during travel and of course comfort and fit. Let's break down each of these elements.
In terms of gear, the Adventure Pack can support 1Dx size bodies with lenses as big as a 400mm attached. Cine bodies such as RED or FS5 fit too but need to be broken down. Surrounding and securing your gear is high-density foam that works like a memory pad to minimize vibrations and bumps.
Accessing and organizing is super easy thanks to a backpanel that fully opens and a ton of pockets spread throughout the pack.
When it comes to travel the Adventure Pack excels. Typically camera bags as big as the Adventure Pack have removable camera cubes or ICU's that need to be taken out for overhead storage. But these systems are poorly designed and restricting, limiting access to your gear and compromising a pack’s load carry!
For airline travel with the Adventure Pack all you have to do is remove the frame. The Adventure Pack is carry-on sized and once removed the frame is easily stored alongside your pack in the overhead.
To see if the Adventure Pack is right for you and your gear, checkout the video from John Kelly below. It will help round out your understanding of the Adventure Pack.
When it comes to comfort, there is nothing more important than correct fit to ensure that weight is properly loaded onto hips and not shoulders. The Adventure Pack build includes an overbuilt harness and suspension system that makes for a much easier treks, especially when carrying heavy camera and non-camera gear.
The Adventure Pack comes in two frame heights and has an adjustable suspension with multiple sizes of hip belts types and sizes.
Sizes are based on torso length and waist size. The MEDIUM frame best fits if your torso length is less than 16in / 40cm. The LARGE frame fits best if your torso is 17in / 43cm or longer.
If you don't know your torso length you can use your height as a guide. The cut-off between the two frame heights is around 5'9 or 175cm
**Please know we are currently sold out of the medium Adventure Pack. We do not have an estimate on delivery at this time.
Some questions we get about the Atlas Athlete Pack
PACK SPECS AND DIMENSIONS
Not to the same degree, but yes it does increase from 50 liters to 70 liters.
At a 50 liter size the Adventure Pack measures 9in / 23cm deep and 25in / 63cm tall. At the maximum 70 liter mark the Adventure Pack will increase to 13in / 33cm in depth and increase in height to about 29in / 73cm.
WILL MY CAMERA GEAR FIT?
If you place a tape measure inside the camera core the depth will measure around 4.25in / 10.8cm. However, this measurement does not include the space gained with the lid closed. Practically speaking you can fit gear up to 5.25" / 13.7cm towards the top of the camera core as this section has more wiggle room than the bottom.
All sony bodies fit with grip
1Dx and D6 series bodies battery grips can be stored upright with lenses attached.
QUESTIONS ABOUT WAISTBELTS
Generally speaking the Adventure belt is more comfortable as it offers two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle. The Athlete belt has a single foam layer and is more minimalist.The Travel belt is just a fabric wrap without any padding. Photo's and videos of all items will be available soon! The Adventure extender is a piece of webbing with a male and a female buckle on each end. You would need an extender if you are between sizes (as an example).
Yes and removing the belt is super easy. Once removed the small pouches tuck into the back of the lumbar padding for a seamless look.
Get the larger size. Better to have a little more padding and webbing than less.
