    Backpack with internal frame for technical or medium format gear

    I just received an Adventure backpack from Atlaspacks in Scottsdale, Az it meets my expectations for almost everything I ever wanted in a backpack.

    You can see from the pictures I have crammed it full of stuff! Its the most comfortable pack on my body out of all the packs ive tried you cant feel the load.

    I'm sure its overloaded but I can remove a lens or two and then go off on a walkabout without them or put a lens or two on the waist belt. This is one feature that really makes it for me is the waistbelt I have found while using a waist belt in the field with lens pouches you not only remove all the weight from the backpack to your waist allowing you to work 10 hours without being uncomfortable but you make changing lenses a breeze. You have two accessible zipper pouches with lens bags inside one on either side attached to the waistbelt. The waist belt is also removable from the pack and could be worn separately. The waist belt is so easy to cinch tight by pulling the straps and on either side and to loosen them by slightly pulling outwards on the cleats. the waist-belt also has the right kind of foam to hug your obliques and ride on the top of your hips. Allan sent me two packs to try with different size belts.

    The pack has water tight pockets, a place for hydration bottle, tripod on either side, internal rain cover, top load pouch and zipper pouches for clothing/food. There are so many other pockets, straps and clever little holders that you will be albe to customize the pack to fit your needs.

    The pack is longer than most which is important as you can see in the picture your able to fit a H6D with a 50mm lens in the bag East to West this allows me to grab the camera fully loaded and ready to shoot when moving from spot to spot. (look close and you will see the two brackets attached to the bottom of the H body)
    I am using part of the top of the bag for my pano rails already set up.

    The pack is really 90% perfect!!! right now but, if in the future Allan (the owner of Atlaspacks) would consider making a few dimension changes to the pack it could well be the most ideal backpack ever produced for anyone using larger gear.

    Best of all he sent me out the packs in one day they are in stock!

    This bag looks very interesting, as does their smaller Athlete bag. I wonder if the Adventure would be large enough for my Fuji GX680. Do you have the internal measurements? Their website doesn't say anything about... anything.
