most comfortable backpack I have ever usedVerified Buyer Reviewed by Nettie Marie from Hummelstown, PA on Wednesday, April 4, 2018Lots of pockets and ridiculously comfortable, this backpack is great! Only one little criticism is that the sternum strap is kind of puny. Other than that it exceeds expectations.
Loving it.Reviewed by Squeeky Crawler from CA on Sunday, April 1, 2018Lots of volume. Plenty of organizational pockets including generous hip belt pockets . My torso is 17 inches and the shoulder strap adjustment is fully cinched. Works well for backcountry skiing and day hikes.
Granite gear AthabascaVerified Buyer Reviewed by Golfer from Oregon on Tuesday, March 21, 2017Moderate size day pack with good padding with good waist belt and chest strap. Comfortable to carry.
Just my sizeVerified Buyer Reviewed by Searching for New Boots from New York on Tuesday, January 31, 2017I got this because a number of review said it's for a smaller frame. Turns out, it fits me great. Love the two hip-belt pouches and many compartments. I do wish the water pouch was bigger (to double as a computer compartment that would fit my 15" laptop in its bag), the rain cover was removable though and it came in more colors.
Love itVerified Buyer Reviewed by Dr Liz from San Antonio, TX on Tuesday, January 17, 2017This backpack is nice and light, very well-made and pretty. I use it for work, so can't speak to how it is on the trail, but it's been great for hauling heavy books and a purse around!
GreatVerified Buyer Reviewed by Gettin Outdoors from Milwaukee on Saturday, December 31, 2016Great value. Everything you want in a daypack
Well designed packReviewed by ipartner48 from Calgary on Wednesday, October 19, 2016Finally figured out that 24L is the right size of backpack for me for day hiking and after trying a North Face and then an Osprey, i fell in love with this Athabasca. I am [...] about organizing and this pack has lots of pockets to quench my thirst. This packs has tons of features - rain cover, hydration sleeve and port, removable hip belt, fleece lined pocket and more. Initially, i was skeptical about the back frame venting but it works quite well - pleased with it. This is now my 'go to' pack for day hiking and commuting! Highly recommended.
Not suitable for meReviewed by Elena from Moscow on Thursday, April 28, 2016For those who looks for imitation of a tracking backpack. Not capacious. Offices are small. All silly, is covered by couplers for reduction though and so will get into him not much. Useless fastenings on hips, do it even less convenient, especially if to move by bicycle. Will suit the person not of high growth or the teenager rather. Too sports for the city. If to use for a campaign, even for one day, for those who goes absolutely with light baggage (a sweater, water, sandwich)
Small and well madeVerified Buyer Reviewed by Ziggy from Idaho on Monday, February 29, 2016This a very sturdy, well-designed pack with large side pockets, a study frame, and lots of pockets and straps for extra gear. Unfortunately, it's also small, both in capacity and sizing, so mine went back, as I have large shoulders and the pack didn't fit me well. Other than that, it's a great pack for smaller people.
Nice for organizing your stuffVerified Buyer Reviewed by PA Gardener from PA on Friday, November 13, 2015This bag has lots of good straps for holding things in place. It is comfortable, and almost perfect. I just wish the front stretchy part was big enough to hold a light jacket or sweatshirt, but its a little small for that. There are lots of good storage compartments and overall the bag is great. Some bags have a special feature and include soft pockets for sunglasses or cell phones that put them within easy reach. This one does not have that feature, but it isn't a deal breaker. Overall this is a really great bag.
