Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best pack I've ever owned! I have several packs so I wasnt real excited about another one. After just one use, it is my new favorite! I bring it with me on long treks as well as day hikes. The multiple adjustments make for a great fit and is so comfortable no matter how much or little I'm carrying. The compartments are perfect, not too many, and with plenty of room. Love that it comes with a custom fit rain cover and it has proven to withstand the hard rains. An all around great pack!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versitile Bag I was familiar with Gregory prior to using this backpack, but after receiving it in my Cairn box, I find myself looking at more and more Gregory products. I really like the versatility of this backpack and it's finding its way on more and more of my hiking trips because it carries a lot of gear comfortably. I am looking forward to more and more trips with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot on fit! Great fit, I have a short torso but long legs so shop clerks are always trying to fit me incorrectly. This was spot on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will be my go to pack for backpacking this summer I haven't had the opportunity to put this pack to full use yet but it seems very well made and I look forward to using it for backpacking trips this summer! I have found it to be lightweight (even more so than my 28L Gregory pack purchased elsewhere) and comfortable in my limited use thus far.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I am sure someone will appreciate it. I gave it to my daughter who literally just bought a backpack a couple weeks prior to delivery. No one will be using it....likely to be a donation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great lightweight backpack I really like this backpack. Very lightweight but carries the load well and has enough organizational features to manage a long weekend trip. Love the fact that it includes a rain cover and the waistbelt pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mid sized backpack Great pack. Very comfortable. Perfect for shorter backpacking trips when a smaller pack is sufficient.

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!

Gregory Women'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.
