It’s also not the lightest pack on the market by a long shot, but for the comfort on offer I’ll happily carry a few extra grams.

Yes, the Atmos 65 is a bit larger and heavier than other packs on the market, but I had no quarrels with this pack (outside the front pocket zipper issue) on my Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike.

All in all, this pack and series of packs are amazing. They don’t have all of the little nick knack extras that some other manufacturers have, but I promise that you’ll never take this pack off and want to toss it in the creek.
