Got my new pack, on the trail and I’m taking a break.
The new pack is very different from the old one. The Atmos is designed to fit the body like a glove rather than sit on the hips and shoulders like most packs. It will take some getting used to.
I hit the trail at noon and after 90 mins and 2 miles I need a break. It’s hot, dry and exposed on the ridge. That’s going to be the norm for the next 90 miles. (It’s 93, not 85 miles)
I may be out of range for the next 5 days.
