It's a big EDC market out there, and tons of awesome gear is released all the time. We made The Drop to help you discover the latest and greatest essentials worth a spot in your EDC.

The next time you venture out into the great outdoors, you can take pride in the fact that you’re doing your part in preserving it when you use the CamelBak A.T.P. (Adventure Travel Pack) 20 backpack. Made from 100% post-industrial recycled re/cor CORDURA, the undyed version of the pack emits half the greenhouse gas emissions and requires less power and water to manufacture than traditional processes, making it the first pack to earn the highest rating on CamelBak’s sustainability and environmental standards scale.

Besides being sustainable, the A.T.P. 20 is as rugged as they come. The 100% post-industrial recycled 210D CORDURA re/cor Nylon 6 material is ultra-tough and resistant to abrasion, tears, and scuffs while remaining lighter than the common weights seen in everyday carry backpacks. The main compartment (lined with the same recycled 210D) can fit up to 20L of gear, while its removable laptop sleeve can accommodate most laptops up to 15”. The pack also has a luggage passthrough that allows you to slide it over the handle of your roller bag for easy travel and deployable straps that you can use to secure your equipment. Hypalon lashing points provide more attachment options.

Other compartments include an expandable bottle pocket, a large side pocket with an internal key clip that can store your essentials such as your phone, wallet, or passport, and a soft-lined pocket to protect your shades from scratches. The pack is compatible with up to a 3L CamelBak reservoir, which is sold separately to stay hydrated on longer treks.

What we like: It’s got the organizing versatility we’ve come to love in our favorite backpacks, and CamelBak’s commitment to sustainability is something we’ll always get behind.

What to watch out for: We wish it had some external loops for attaching extra gear or accessories. Also, if you're getting the undyed pack, keep in mind that on rare occasions, undyed fabrics may undergo light yellowing over time.

Final verdict: Whether you’re hiking, biking, camping, or commuting, the CamelBak A.T.P. 20 is a “do-it-all” backpack that you can feel good about buying.
