Gregory Jade 28 Pack - Women'sis rated4.4286out of5by7.
Rated3out of5byfromJade 28 PackI bought this product to take on a trip to Nepal for a 6 day trek, to carry just my personal items such as a camera , some food & a rain jacket. While the pack worked OK for the trek itself, I also used it as my carry on piece for travel and business for another 7 days of travel. I only wanted to take one pack as I was traveling light .I found the pack not well organized for airplane or day to day travel. The fact that none of the stapes tuck away , and were hanging all over the place especially the waist belt was a problem, especially going through security checkpoints . I did like the suspension system as it did keep my back ventilated & cool on the trek itself . I found the pockets on the waist belt really too small to carry much of anything other than one PowerGel. Also the water bottle pocket was not deep enough to hold a water bottle in place . The straps that were designed to hold the hose to my hydration system are already stretched out after only 6 days of use & tearing. I did not have any need of the rain cover , but it is a nice feature . Over all the pack was comfortable and carried what it needed to.If you are just planning on using it for a long day hike it will be fine, for anything else not so much.

Rated5out of5byfromgreat backpackI bought this pack for daily use on the Tour du Mont Blanc. Since our luggage was taken from place to place, I just needed a day pack. This one worked perfectly. It was just the right size with enough room for what I needed during the day plus extra room. I will be using this pack a lot in the years to come.

Rated5out of5byfromBest Pack EverThis is an amazing product. It makes a 15+ pound pack feel like 5 pounds on my back. It didn't feel like I was carrying anything and was nicely balanced for scrambling over rocks and crossing logs over streams. I had a bunch of food, jackets, 3 liters of water and all my emergency supplies and there was extra space, too, had I needed it. We did an 8 hour hike that day, climbing Mt. Tallac and hiking to Lake Aloha, and the pack felt light on my back the whole way. Another day we were drenched by rain, and the pack stayed dry with the rain cover on it, though my waterproof hiking boots were soaked through. I heartily recommend this pack!

Rated3out of5byfromComfortable but not too practicalI'm 5'5" with a fairly small build so I needed to buy a women's small. It fits me well but really wish the medium fit because the hip belt pockets on the small are smaller than the medium and worthless to use except for pair of keys. So there is no where to put a small camera or anything that you may want to use often without taking off the pack or asking someone else to get something for you. Also on the women's small, the hydration pocket is smaller and shorter than on the medium and it is a struggle to fit a 70 oz. hydration bladder into it. I'll be using this for a 9 day trek in northern Romania and although I have not gone on the trek yet, I've been going on walks with it to get used to it before the trip.

Rated5out of5byfromI rate this backpack a 6 out of 5 starsI rate this pack 6 out of 5 stars. I recently purchased a larger Camelback but I received this Gregory pack as a gift and it is far superior. I used this pack for the first time on several hikes in the Sierras. It worked great in torrential downpours and my interior gear stayed nice and dry with the rain cover, even when my waterproof hiking boots were no longer dry (that took about 3 hours). My pack was loaded with lunch, snacks, 3 liters of water, safety gear and 2 jackets. I loved all the pockets for small things like my headlamp and cell phone. The hip belt was comfortable and I kept a small pack of tissues in 1 pocket and my waterproof camera in the other. It was cool to be able to tuck the excess straps out of the way. My pack fully loaded was probably close to 12 or more pounds but it felt like I only had about 5 pounds on my back. One hike was 18 miles and the pack still felt nice and light and balanced, even at the end. You could probably run reasonably comfortably with this pack, too. So, I loved it and never expected to find this pack this amazing.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat Pack for Small WomenI use this pack every other week for dayhikes that last 6 hours or so with a lot of elevation changes and this pack is a perfect fit for my small frame.

Rated5out of5byfromLove at first sightAnd I'm not talking about the color, though it is nice! Usually things don't live upto their online looks, but the moment I tore open the box, I knew it would be everything I expected. It's so nicely constructed, and I poked and pulled at every square inch. I'm 5'4" and the small is a perfect fit. Coming from a background in massage (and proper body alignment), I love the curve of the pack and the great weight's just so comfortable and functional! I'm a loyal Gregory fan now!
