Why we made this
From the school yard to the daily commute, the Atlas day pack is designed to withstand the rigours of daily use.
  • Product Description
    The good ol’ Atlas has had some experience carrying ‘heavy loads’ — we reckon it's suited to just about anything. From carting school books and pencil cases, through to laptops, climbing shoes and your lunch, the Atlas is designed to carry all you need and keep it organised without complaints. Featuring our legendary Eco AzTec® canvas for durability and weather resistance, this pack has a main compartment with a laptop sleeve and two front zip pockets. Drink bottle pockets on the side help to keep you hydrated, while the bike light attachment and reflective detailing makes commuting in the darker that much safer. Complete with Macpac's iconic front grab handle, the Atlas it ready for any adventure.

A versatile and waterproof backpack well suited to motorcyclists
This is my third Macpac backpack and second using the Aztec fabric in about 5 years. As a motorcyclist, the fabric is near waterproof even in heavy rain and without a rain cover. The Aztec backpacks are extremely well made, and I appreciate the number of pockets on this backpack, as well as the external drink bottle holders. I also like the securing clip across the chest linking the straps; this particularly helps keep the backpack still when riding. I also find the 24L size can fit a significant amount of items without feeling too bulky even when full.

Ain't no good O Atlas for nothing
I am still using an older version of the Atlas from 2015 and the bag is going strong.
I particularly like the fabric used on this bag and i carry it everyday, including for overseas work travel.

I also bought a Boulder 28 L day pack but that is forgotten in my store room. Although it states 28 L, the Atlas packs more efficiently and i can put more in it; or so i feel.

Recommended purchase, one of my straps had frayed and i am contemplating if i should get a new Atlas.

Great for one bag travel
I have just bought this bag and I'm very impressed. Admittedly I'm a minimalist traveller, but this bag easily holds all I need for two days or two months travel. The pockets are really well set out, allowing easy access to essentials like phone charger, glasses, book etc. The main compartment will easily hold your clothes and computer. Loaded up, it carries well and the material is very high quality - and I expect very durable.
I researched for quite a while to find a top bag, and I think this is it. Good price too!

Hard to beat!
Great EDC and travel backpack. Pros: material and construction, it carries a 2 Ltr Klean Kanteen - seriously, 2 external entry pockets main front and top, with internal pockets and key fob. Harness and straps are seriously comfortable. Main compartment holds not only laptop, but i stuffed shoes, 4prs socks, 5 prs pants, 1 trouser, 1 polo, 1 heavy cotton sweater, and 3 shirts in there no real problem. Wow that's enough for me to travel and live on. Only con is the laptop sleeve they have clearly not considered end users here the sleeve goes straight to the bottom of the bag and needs extra padding or to be recessed. Wish they had a slightly bigger version but learning to live and travel light this bag is so well made and hard to beat.

Hard to beat EDC
Pros: Holds a 64oz - 2 LtrKlean Kanteen in side pockets not many packs can do that. The Aztec matrial is the Eco version they don't say this but that means it's an 8oz /270gsm fabric - highly durable, pliable, and water resistant - they should say that on the ad. Pockets besides 2 water are 1 front large vertical pocket the full size of the front panel, a top loading small pocket with key fob and this has 2 pen pockets, 2 pouch pockets, and a zip pocket great for wallet, phone, passport etc. Then main compartment where the laptop sleeve is its huge folks I packed it out with shoes, 4 pairs socks, 5 pairs pants, 1 trouser, 1 polo, 3 shirts, 1 sweater, laptop in cleeve and power cord. The Cons: play the laptop sleeve is poorly designed the bag sits squarely flat on the ground the pocket runs to the bottom no real protection there, serious design fault - wake up designers it should be recessed a good 20mm and extra 10mm of foam padding. Room for improvements increase capacity, otherwise this bag is a brilliant EDC, work, school, and travel pack. Great front grab handle for lifting out of overhead bins/lockers, harness and comfor level is good and I am a big guy 6'2" 230lbs it fitsand no stupid unnecessary waist strap for the price this is truly unbeatable.

Man Bag!
My partner bought me this for my birthday and its excellent! Hard wearing, simple and classy for a day bag. Fits everything for a night away and as an around town bag. Great hand luggage size for travel too! I love it!

Great bag for school or college
This bag is very strong and well made. We use it for school and would like to buy for another child at college but this bag only comes in black. Would love to see this in another colour, perhaps navy blue.

Have you improved laptop sleeve on Altas 24L yet? Concerned as feedback suggests not enough protection and should be recessed.Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Hello Megan, i had a discussion with our design team who have advised me that an update for this pack is on their to do list. They also advised that this update will not come into effect until this time next year. We hope this is helpful. Cheers :)
Hi, has the laptop sleeve been recessed and improved on the Atlas 24L by now?

The current Atlas 24L AzTec Backpack has padded laptop sleeve.
