I'm really glad I got this pack. Check out a number of them and was pushed over the line by the quality, fit and features. There wasn't another pack that came close to this for less than $100 more. It has an awesome warranty (and great customer care, from what I hear), but I'm happy to assume I won't need it. I've been all over with this pack since I got it and it still looks like brand new. There aren't any unique features I'm aware of, but it's a great pack for the money and is worth more than it's price. Super accessible, comfy and well-made. Nice looking, too. Happy to have it!
use it from the mountain climbing of the night to the mountain climbing of 3 days.I am lighter than other brands of the same size and think that the functionality is superior again. In addition, it feels Gregory to just fit a back.
I tried a lot of packs before taking this one out. It packs up quick and holds a ton for the size while keeping everything accessible and organized. I liked the suspension even better than the BD ACTIV - it fits perfectly and rides just right. Built-in raincover/pocket and hydration storage pouch is hand, as is the front access horseshoe zipper and roll-top upper access. Well balanced - extremely comfortable - tons of well-thought extras. I couldn't be happier.
"Great pack with lots of useful features... good suspension and water resistant materials..."
I had the chance to try this pack out on a couple of recent hikes and as with most Gregory packs, it's a winner. The medium is a 58 L pack. I really like the roll-top style secure top. It also has a nice separate water bladder compartment. The balance and comfort were very good. The only negative I have is with the water bottle pockets, but it's minor.
