Pack Details

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.

THE ATLAS ATHLETE CAMERA BACKPACK

We took a 40L ripstop shell and added our patent pending Origami Camera Core to create an incredibly versatile camera backpack for medium size sets of camera and video equipment.

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 Athlete Pack can be expanded out to it’s full shell size of 40L. Approximately 10L is reserved for the Origami Camera Core leaving a front pocket that can expand up to 30L by releasing the side compression straps.

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.

Why we made this pack...

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.

Other camera bag brands make you buy an inserts like ICU’s or camera cubes that hold your gear and then slide inside their packs. These systems are expensive and poorly designed.

Bags using ICU's require a “pressure fit”, resulting in a fundamental compromise to the pack’s load carrying as 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).
