Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack, Worth the Price! I debated for entirely to long about buying either the Baltoro 75 or 65 and landed on the 65 to save a little weight. I am 145, 5'7" and the small seems to fit perfectly! I have used this pack in up north trips in Michigan & recently through the Grand Canyon and it was great. I love the suspension system & the lack of back pain when using this :) I ended up going with the 65 @ a small because it is a nice blend of attempting to be light-weight & having the available space for longer hikes & the top lid detaches for longer trips which adds a few liters of space. Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tons of features I chose this pack over the AG Osprey. The pivoting hip belt is a must. It moves with your body. The weight is perfectly distributed and supported. Love the front, top and bottom access. The removable day pack is genius. You can put the gear you want to bring into the tent into it. So many pockets and storage places! The waterproof hip pocket is nice. Wish it was bigger. Great place for your wallet. Wish there was more mesh, but not at the expense of support. The best pack available in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All around winner I have been through many backpacks on my quest to find the boltoro 65. I even had owned the old version of the boltoro and ended up selling it to find something lighter. I bought packs from osprey, granite gear, arcteryx and they all left me wanting the old Gregory back. When Gregory revamped this pack for 2015 I was instantly sold. They had dropped the weight of the pack without sacrificing the thing I loved most about it-the suspension. This pack is extremely comfortable and built like a tank. The fabrics are durable and have a high quality feel to them. Only gripe aboutthepackisthe waterproof pocket doesn't fit an iPhone 6 with case very easily. Buy it, you will not regret.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Pack! I bought this pack with going lighter in mind. I own a Baltoro 75 that is only a few years old and I love it but my thinking was that a smaller pack would force me to pack a bit less. I took this pack on an over nighter to Savage Gulf in Tennessee and still over packed but it hardly mattered! I went from a medium suspension to a small suspension and I'm still fiddling with the adjustments but it handled the weight well and was comfortable. The only downside that I can see is that the waist belt and the belt of my pants sometimes pinched my stomach. I believe that I can adjust the suspension for a better fit and all will be perfect! Gregory is the Cadillac of packs and this new model is another home run!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great pack but! This is my forth Gregory pack. I like their craftsmanship and fit. This is no different except for the following. The pack has an integrated pocket on its right side near the hip belt. This pocket is to hold a water container, very handy. However, the bottom portion uses mesh? This lasted about 4 hikes before it wore through. This needs to be a much more durable material. I have an old chalk bag that I will modify in an attempt to fix this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort hauler! I bought the Baltoro 65, 75 and Scout 45, 65. I returned everything but the Baltoro 75. I really wanted to like the Scout but the Baltoro is worth each and every one of 1lb 3 oz ounces more that it weights. Please see my review of the Scout which is an unfortunate miss in Gregory's lineup. The instant I put on the Baltoro the comfort and perfect fit was immediately apparent. I tested it first with 40lb of Kitty Litter in each pack then I loaded 5 days worth of gear and food into it. My decision was made before even taking the pack on the trail. I could not believe I had 45lbs on my back. It felt effortless and the transfer between hip and shoulder straps (as I tightened one and loosened the other) was seamless. Comparison of Stout Vs. Baltoro The main pieces organization between the two packs is roughly the same (one large compartment, lid, brain, etc) Baltoro : Adjustable shoulder straps (a must in my opinion), adjustable load straps, wider more padded shoulder straps, accommodating my chest width (185lb 5'11), weight rides effortlessly. Bottomline: everything you could want and more. With 35lb+ loads I could not think of a better pack. Stout: 1lb 3oz lighter, constructed well (as to be expected from Gregory), unfortunately this pack just did NOT fit well for me. The shoulder strap connection to the bag were not adjustable (they are stitched to the bag) and they pinched in on my chest and armpits. It almost felt like I was wearing a woman's pack. The shoulder strap was also less padded but the padding should have worked for loads of up to and around 40-45lbs if the fit was better. The chest strap was not long enough to accommodate my moderate chest width (see picture). Bottomline: check the fit before you commit. This is not meant for everyone. I would have loved to save 1lb 3oz with the Stout but the differences are unmistakable. I know cutting weight requires compromises but I expected better fit and a few basic adjustments from Gregory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pack Overall happy with my purchase. Took this pack out for 30 miles round trip hike. great suspension system carried my load with ease and barely notice the 40lbs on my back. This pack comes with a daypack that was very useful for me when I was fetching water from a spring. I was able to get this pack through the airport without issues and plan to take this backpacking overseas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Update to Great Pack The New Baltoro 65 and Deva 60 kept all of the great things about the last model (lots of pockets, awesome - even improved - AFS suspension system) while overcoming its weaknesses (weight). We almost bought the last generation to replace our packs when we saw an article saying that they were completely redesigning these for 2015. So we held out for the new ones. Headline message: Maybe the best overall pack in its class but there are a couple annoying things (see bottom). Here is our rundown: Weight - the big news for Gregory, they have dropped the weight by 13oz for Deva (M) and 13oz for the Baltoro (L). With the weight loss, Gregory is now in line with the best-in-class Arc’teryx Altra 65 while coming in a $150 cheaper! (the new Baltoro is 2 oz heavier and the Deva is 1 oz heavier than the comparable Arc’teryx). In short, Gregory is no longer the “comfortable but heavy” alternative. Suspension System - the new Baltoro looks to us to be every bit as customizable as the old system and then some. It has an additional lumbar support which I find helpful, and the main support is a more breathable mesh. The hip belt is extremely comfortable and not over-padded, and the cantilever allows independent hip movement. Overall very good fit and very comfortable though it will have to wait for a full hike before we can tell for sure. Access - the pack has very good access from the top and from the bottom and retains the optional divider between the main compartment and the sleeping bag/tent compartment. It has plenty of side pockets and attachment points. New features - it comes equipped with a rain cover and a waterproof electronics pocket on the hip belt (my one big complaint), both very welcome. It also has a removable daypack they call the Sidekick which doubles as a reservoir sleeve. We were a bit skeptical of this design but on seeing it in person we think it might be very useful (we will certainly be using the 2L reservoir sleeve). Complaints: Minor complaints so far (recognizing we have NOT field tested it yet!) The lower-end Stout model is "solar ready" with daisy chain lash points for a solar panel. I cannot for the life of me understand why this was left off the Baltoro/Deva. We would love to have it here. The waterproof pouch is TOO SMALL! I can just barely squeeze into the zipper my iPhone 6 with its case. If you have a 6-plus or a larger android phone or use one of those larger cases (e.g. a Otterbox), forget it. It is as though this pouch was made with the last generation of smart-phones in mind (which it probably was). Seriously, an extra 1” would have made all the difference. But, at least for me, it is “barely big enough” There is NO WAY I will be able to use the phone for a quick photo on the trail which limits its usefulness. Will post an update when we have done some field testing, but overall (except for the pouch) it is an fantastic upgrade.

I am looking to purchase the baltoro 65.  This will be my first Gregory pack. After measuring my torso "many times" I am right around 18". Gregory suggests I should opt for the small.  I'm seriously debating between the small and medium.  I am 5'-10"

Asked by: The Golden Cheese
At your height go up, definitely not down. I don't know why they tell people this repeatedly, but if you go down in size, your load lifter straps will be below the top of your shoulders and you'll never be comfortable with a load on a long hike. "personal experience"

I am looking to do a thru hike when I retire from the military in a few years. I will have a dog with me for most of the hike and might have to carry some extra food for him that he can't carry himself. Would you recommend the 65L or 75L? Thank you

Asked by: NOLA Boy
Based on the information you provided, we recommend the Baltoro 75 Pack for your thru hike.

I see note of different hip-belt sizes.  Am I able to purchase a custom hip-belt at the time of ordering or do I have to get the standard belt size and then purchase a replacement later?

Asked by: Zier
We do carry the hipbelts for the new Baltoro 65 pack. You can order the size that you need along with the pack. Once you switch out the hipbelts, you can return the belt that came off of the pack back to your local store for a refund. http://www.rei.com/product/881011/gregory-a3-quickswap-hipbelt

Am I able to bungee cord anything to the outside, because I dont see any attachment points?

Asked by: RTFhiker
The Baltoro 65 Pack has shockcords on the outside of the pack to attach ice axes or trekking poles. You can attach your gear to those shockcords and loops or you could attach a bungee to the attachment points.

I tried this pack on recently and it seems to be the one for my AT thru-hike coming up in 2016. But $300 is a lot to lay down for a disabled veteran living on a fixed income. Does it ever get put on sale?

Asked by: ckhenson
Yes, it will occasionally go on sale. Most likely, you will see a lower price for this item during our 2015 Labor Day sale (August 28, 2015 - September 7, 2015).
