Loading Ratings & Reviews...

Gregory Z65 Pack is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for light loads I've always been a big fan of Gregory packs so when I went to slim up my pack I was driven to the Z65. On a 5 day hike starting out with 32 lbs I had difficulty getting it to fit well. It refused to sit on my hips and would drive into my shoulders. The shoulder straps seem to be a bit narrow and the lumbar pad either didn't curve into my back enough or the lumbar pad was just too slick. Once the weight began to drop it became an enjoyable pack. I'd say that right around 23 lbs the comfort begins to drop off noticeably. I do enjoy the pack but it will likely be used only for lighter weekend trips.
