Brand new Atompacks Prospector Large, Bahama Blue xv21, 50 liter backpack. Weighs 35oz. Hipbelt fits me perfect and I wear 30-32″ pants. Would likely work up to about 34″. I have loaded it up and walked around the house with it but have not taken it on a trip. I’m really into the pack design but the torso length is not quite right for me so I’m going to have to let it go. Includes hipbelt pockets and shoulder strap pockets. I spent a total of $311.04 on this pack so I will let it go for $300 including shipping conus. Message me if you would like more photos.Dec 24, 2018 at 10:37 pm #3569986

To answer some questions I was messaged about: It is supposed to fit 19″ to 21″ torsos. And it has a single aluminum stay.Feb 3, 2019 at 3:59 pm #3576562Benny HBPL Member
Hello, you say that the pack is supposed to fit 19-21″ torso but it doesn’t fit your torso. What is your torso length and what about the fit do you not like? Thanks.Feb 3, 2019 at 5:41 pm #3576580
Benny H, great question. My torso is within range, about 19.5″, so the shoulder straps attach to the pack very close to the tops of my shoulders. This means they don’t wrap around my shoulders very much. If I was designing this I would have attached the shoulder straps about 2″ lower. The result is that it fits very much like an HMG for me, where the lack of shoulder wrap causes some pressure on the trapezius. Don’t get me wrong, it’s more comfortable than HMG packs by far. But I tried on my wife’s medium torso ULA Circuit and it fits me perfectly. I’m technically within the torso range of both the Large Prospector and the Medium Circuit but the Circuit wraps around the shoulders more and is more comfortable.
I think I could actually be fairly happy with this pack. It’s light, the hipbelt is fantastic. Features are good. But after testing the Circuit (her’s is made of xpac) I just want sell this and get an xpac Circuit too. I expect that this information will not help me sell the pack. But it’s also not the end of the world if I keep it.Feb 27, 2019 at 6:42 am #3580802
