Rewards Program Terms and Conditions
Last updated January 1st, 2020
Opting-in to Moosejaw Rewards:
All users must accept these terms and conditions and create an account with Moosejaw to opt-in to the program and earn, accrue, retain and redeem Moosejaw Reward Dollars (MJ$). The program is FREE to join and membership is ongoing until or unless the user requests to be removed or is removed due to abuse of the program. Users can opt-in to the program while checking out on Moosejaw.com or at one of our stores or at any time within 30 days of purchase to accrue the MJ$ earned on that purchase. Once opted-in to the program, MJ$ will earn and accrue for redemption as described below until the MJ$ expire or the user leaves the program.
All information collected and used to facilitate the Moosejaw Rewards program is directly related to the program's ability to provide value to the customer. A customer opting-in to the Moosejaw Rewards program is a separate action from establishing a user profile as a result of making a purchase.
The program opt-in requirement was added on August 6th, 2019. Existing program members prior to that date must still formally opt-in and accept the terms and conditions to continue to retain, earn and redeem MJ$. Pre-existing program members that fail to opt-in prior to June 28, 2020 will be removed from the program, and any unused MJ$ will be voided. We really, really don't want to that to happen, so please opt-in or we'll feel terrible.
Leaving Moosejaw Rewards Program:
You may choose to leave the Moosejaw Rewards program at any time by logging in and clicking on the “Opt out Rewards Program” link within the My Account Summary page, Email, calling 877-MOOSEJAW (877-666-7352) or in-store with help from our employees. If you leave the rewards program, any unused MJ$ will be voided upon completion of your request.
All items we sell are eligible with the exception of gift cards or other items specifically noted. Full-priced items earn 10% back while discounted items earn 2.5%. "Discounted items" includes items on sale or discounted via coupon code or use of MJ$. You do not earn MJ$ for shipping or tax charges, only from the item value. MJ$ expire two years after earning and are redeemed on a first-in, first out basis (in other words, we always use your oldest MJ$ that are closest to expiration).
Checking & Redeeming MJ$:
On Moosejaw.com, just sign-in on any page to see your available balance. Once signed in, you will see your available MJ$ and maximum that can be redeemed in the payment section of the checkout process. In stores, provide the email address attached to your account to learn your balance and apply to your purchase. We will also send you a monthly email that details your balance and other account activity. This is a transactional email that you will receive even if you are not subscribed to our marketing emails.
Bonus Rewards Promotions:
Every so often, we'll have special offers where you can earn bonus MJ$, like an additional 10%, 20% or 40% back. So if we are running a 50% back special offer, and you buy a regular-priced item for $100.00, you will receive MJ$10.00 in base points, and a bonus of MJ$40. These special offers may have a cap on how many bonus MJ$ you earn during the promotion, but you will always earn the base Reward Dollars. Make sure to check us out on our social channels for other ways to win some extra MJ$!
MJ$ on Gift Cards:
You don't get earn MJ$ when you buy a gift card, but you do get MJ$ when you spend a gift card. Sorry gift givers. You're welcome gift receivers.
Product Returns and MJ$:
If you return an item, we deduct the MJ$ earned on that item from your balance. If you used the MJ$ and your balance is less than deduction, then your refund is reduced by the difference.
The intent of the program is to provide our loyal customers with a way to buy great gear for less. Moosejaw reserves the right to remove any user from the program and zero out their MJ$ balance if Moosejaw determines that the user is abusing the program by buying for resale, attempting to game the program or any other reason at Moosejaw's sole discretion.
Are you Sure?
Our Rewards Program is completely FREE and easy to use.
By opting out, you forfeit all the Moosejaw Rewards Dollars your currently have in your account, which is basically throwing away free money. What would your grandmother say about that? If you're 100% sure, please click "OptOut" below.
We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.
The Gregory Women's Octal 55L Backpack is an ultralight pack with plenty of space and a low base weight for loads of time on the trail. Thru-hikes or a week on foot, the AeroSpan suspension, EVAP ventilated back panel, and FocusForm harness and hipbelt serve you comfortably, supporting the load. From the custom raincover to the removable top zippered pocket with ultralight weather flap, both hidden in the top pocket, rain can't get you down. Or at least won't get your gear soaked.

Best Lightweight Pack EVERAbsolutely love this pack. It's light but really comfortable and fits more than expected. The lashing points on the bottom are slightly annoying as they must be adjusted up behind the water bottles at the side, but a small downside compared to the benefits. I wish Gregory would change these to be separate straps even if that meant just a tad more weight in order to add the additional buckles, etc. Outside of that it's my go-to pack for any trip. It's gotten pretty beat up and I'm already thinking about the next one.

Decent pack but not perfect. I don’t backpack much and this is the first backpacking pack I’ve owned, so take with a grain of salt— I don’t have anything to compare it to. I just used it to hike in to base camp for a big mountain climb. It fit everything well, and I love the stretchy mesh on the outside. However, after 16 miles with it fully loaded, I have an epic bruise/wound on my right shoulder. When I loosened the shoulder straps and tried to carry the weight on my hips, my mid back would hurt. It’s possible I just haven’t figured out the straps yet, but definitely cannot quite give this pack a 5/5.

Light and ComfortableI got this backpack for my 18 year old daughter. She used it on an overnight backpacking trip and it worked great. It was light and comfortable and fit all her gear.

Lightweight and very comfortable!This pack is just what I hoped it would be. Lightweight and comfortable for multi days in the back country. I have several Gregory packs and for good reason. Lots of features without the added weight. All my gear fits just right without going to my heavier other brand pack. Nice to shave those ounces/pounds down without giving up the comfort of carrying the load. Nice to use either the "brain" or light weight top cover, depending on amount of gear.
The outside pockets are plenty big for stowing tent gear and water bottles, if you choose not to use the inner pouch for a hydration system. The shoulder sunglass clip is very handy.

Poor QualityI received this backpack as a Christmas present from a friend, but the 2nd time I used it the seam completely ripped. The bag is comfortable, lightweight, big enough for a week backpacking trip, and works well other than the quality.

Love it so far!!I've only used my new Gregory Octal 55 a few times, but I am smitten with it! I was specifically looking for something lightweight, as I don't often take long treks and for me, carrying a heavy pack takes most of the fun out of hiking. This pack is so light and so comfortable, that I trekked longer and farther than I ever have before. I love all the special features like sunglasses cord, the roomy hipbelt pockets, and the mesh water bottle pockets on the side. I would love a smaller day pack with a similar design because this pack is perfect!

After 150ish Miles and 5 varied trips I LOVE IT!I have now taken this on trips in temperatures >18 degrees and <90 degrees, with a required bear can (BV450, not the huge one) at times, with more gear for colder temps and in areas with long water carries. I did have a DEVA, but I have slowly changed out my gear and didn't need a pack as substantial as the DEVA. For an UL pack it carries well, but if packing too heavy the shoulder straps tent to dig in around my collar bone and my lower back begins to hurt (this is the only reason it is 4-star vs., a 5-star) but I know from others with varied UL brands, they ALL have issues if overpacked. I love the larger hip belt pockets and ease of access to them as well as the large side and back pockets. I like the fact that it still has an internal frame as I appreciated the added support as I am 58 yrs young.

versatile lightweight packI'm on my third season using this pack and I love it. I bought this for the Enchantments and used it ever since, including the Wonderland Trail. I've up to 31lbs in this pack and feels great. Due to the weight the fabric and especially the mesh won't hold up as well as on the Dueter pack, but it weighs in at quite a bit less. Overall, great pack.
There doesn’t seem to be any information about sizing on this page?

Will this hold a BearVault 450? That is , in addition to the usual gear? I am trying to find a backpack for my wife.
Asked by: Retiredchemist
Hey there retiredchemist!
Great question. The Gregory Women's Octal 55L pack will fit the BearVault 450. It is a tad bulky, so be warned. There is extra room for gear, and you can still use all the pockets and openings. Hope that helps!
