Atlas are the only backpacks on the market today designed to accommodate both photography and personal gear. The company offers two lines of bags: the Athlete Pack is carry-on sized for under-the-seat storage and holds small to medium-sized camera gear. The overhead-bin sized Adventure Pack holds extra-large sets of camera gear and can be sized between 50 and 70-liters. Atlas Packs have received significant accolades from the industry, including “Best Camera Bag for Travelers” by National Geographic. All Atlas Packs are engineered for comfort and flexibility, with an overbuilt harness system and a patent-pending Origami camera core.
