Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile, well built, and lightweight I decided to try the Gregory Paragon 38 after looking at a number of different options and even trying many day packs on hikes. In the end, the Paragon was the pack that featured the best combination of weight, size, comfort, and features. I have now used the Paragon during many miles of hiking. One of my favorite recent hikes was to the summit of South Sister, in Oregon. The Paragon was a great option for this hike because it could comfortably carry a 3L hydration bladder, another liter of extra fluids, a couple layers, gaiters, food, and other small necessities. It's also just barely compact enough that I was able to use it as my carry on for the flight to Oregon. I had to keep the top as lightly loaded as possible. A quick look at the Paragon and one will notice that it's made to be lighter than most packs of this size. Despite being constructed primarily with lightweight nylon materials and smaller compression straps, this pack still feels like a high quality piece. The clips and other hardware are smaller as well, which helps to reduce the weight of the pack as much as possible. However, this doesn't prevent the Paragon 38 from carrying a good amount of weight. I've loaded the pack with approximately 20 lbs and I have no doubt it can comfortably carry more if needed. In addition to the main chamber, there are two pockets in the brain, two side water bottle pockets, hip belt pockets, large stretch panel in the front, and a small zippered pocket behind this for the rain cover. The rain cover pouch can still has room for other small items like an emergency blanket or a first aid kit. The hip belt pockets are convenient for small food items, and even a regular sized phone, but they won't hold most of the xl sized phones on the market with a case. The internal hydration pouch easily holds a full 3L bladder with a small strap and plastic clip. If desired, this elasticized pouch could hold a small computer or anything that one might want to keep separated. A bottom zipper allows easy access to the bottom of the load. I like this feature because I tend to put a warm layer at the bottom and don't like having to dig for it when the time comes. Below that are two straps for a pad or anything that might be added externally. One side also has the loop and cord for carrying poles. The Paragon's stability is due to the aluminum framed back panel. I've used ventilated style backpacks before but found that I much prefer a pack that keeps the load closer to the body. I haven't found heat to be an issue, which might be due to the cutouts in the back panel. The Paragon 38 features adjustable shoulder harness height, which is important for me because I tend to be on the border between medium and large packs. Adjusting the harness is done by simply loosening the load lifter straps and pulling the Velcro of the harness away from the back panel. Once the harness is placed at the desired height, it's secured by pressing the Velcro back together and readjust the straps as necessary. With the comfortably padded hip belt and well designed S shaped shoulder straps, I've spent very little time thinking about the pack or adjusting it. However, adjustments are very easy to make on the fly and the hip belt loosens readily if needed. I never felt I needed the silicone layer on the lumbar pad that is a feature of the Paragon 38's larger siblings. After many hikes, I can safely say that the Paragon 38 is a great option for anyone looking for a lighter than average pack that can carry enough for an all day hike or even and overnighter if necessary. The Paragon has proven to be durable and easy to use. At the end of the day the pack is comfortable enough that I am not thinking about it until its time to access a pocket or it's time to stop.The Paragon is now my go to pack for day hikes of all distances.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Eh, it does seem to be missing features... Missing Gription lumbar pad and Sidewinder water bottle pocket. the latter is one of my favorite features of larger volume gregory packs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Checks all the boxes had to buy this after I had the 48 out a few times. I love this line of bags due to the lightweight/toughness ratio. This is a strong enough bag to "mistreat" a little, you can sit on it and toss it about and not have to worry about it. Overall a great pack. Have about 400 miles on this, mostly cold weather, long day hikes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The review before me was unfair and unclear I am honestly curious to see what features were missing in the previous review posting made by "RetailEmployeeNotSellingYourStuff". I get that you were unhappy but we must ask you to elaborate before condemning the product. Some people are swayed by reviews and to have your review be vague and strong, it isn't helpful.

Gregory Men's Packs

Gregory backpacking packs are available in a size range. Please check the PRODUCT FEATURES and / or SPECIFICATIONS for the torso range measurements of each size of a pack. The steps below are a guide for measuring your torso size.

The hipbelts on Gregory backpacking packs are adjustable to fit a range of sizes. A simple rule of thumb is that the ideal distance between the ends of the hipbelt pads after tightening should be 3 to 5 inches. However, the most important criteria are that the hipbelt wraps clear over the side of your body and that it rests 1 inch above your iliac crest. This allows proper load transfer to your skeletal structure, which maximizes comfort and minimizes energy expenditure.

1. Put your chin to your chest and feel for the big bone protruding on your neck at the top of your spine. That's the C7 vertebra.

2. Feel your hip bone, the top part of this is your iliac crest. Find the spot on your back that is level with the top of this crest.

3. Have someone measure the distance between these two points, following the contours of your spine.
