Let everyone else burn up.
Hiking can be hot. Especially in hot weather, like in the summer. That's why The North Face designed the Alteo 50 Backpack–because the folks at The North Face are familiar with hot weather. The Alteo 50 is loaded with airflow-promoting ventilation that lets cooling breezes flow between your back and the pack. The lightweight aluminum frame adds lightweight structure to the pack for more stable carrying. The Alteo is also equipped with a multitude of pockets to help keep you organized and make it easier to access the gear that you need in a hurry, and even has a removable lid that converts into a daypack for exploration once camp is set up.

Currently considering the Osprey Atmos 50,...
Currently considering the Osprey Atmos 50, but also saw a North Face Alteo 50. Any suggestions as to which one would be better? The Osprey Atmos 50 or North Face Alteo 50?

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Nice design, tons of compartments, and holds way more than I thought it would. I'll be taking it out on a two week hiking trip with some pals.
Does the,North Face 50 have a sleeping bag...
Does the,North Face 50 have a sleeping bag compartment or straps?
Straps on the bottom or stuffs into the main compartment through the top, but not into a separate compartment with its own access. If you're looking for a TNF pack specifically with a sleeping bag compartment and zippered access in about the same volume, try the Terra 45. If you're looking for a good weekend sized pack, and aren't dedicated to this brand, Osprey has a wider selection.
