The Atom is a simple pack with a clear mission – it has no frame, no hipbelt, no attempt at back ventilation, and not even padding in the back panel – instead, the design focuses on fast and efficient travel.

In lieu of features designed to accommodate a big load, the Atom provides features to enable quick access to your supplies so you can keep moving. The Atom is fully customizable. Atom Packs doesn’t just tolerate customizations but encourages them.

The frame helps transfer weight nicely to the plush 3” tall padded waistbelt, which I prefer over a more structured hipbelt … The side pockets are very easy for me to reach. – Matthew King
