Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Praise from a Giant I've had this pack for a little over a year and it has held up phenomenally. I am 6'8" with a 38" waist and it has only been comfortable. I've taken it on many weekend trips and a few extended trips along the AT. Pros: Weight rests comfortably on hips Comfortable shoulder straps Fantastic suspension Lots of lower back support Zippered compartments Ease of access Easy to pack Durable Cons: Heavy Could be more breathable Overall I would recommend this pack to someone going on extended trips carrying 70+ lbs or someone who doesn't mind carrying a larger pack. I would definitely buy this pack again given the chance, and will be buying Gregory again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but not for large chests I bought this pack to replace my decade-old Kelty, and I was somewhat disappointed. The pack carries weight well for the most part, but no matter how I tried, even with various sizes, I could not get the straps comfortable. The shoulder straps were either pressing hard into my chest or the chest strap was so high it was encroaching on my neck. Pros: -Carries weight well -Lots of useful features -Waterproof hip pocket is useful -Included rain cover and day pack are useful Cons: -Uncomfortable and inflexible straps that don't work well with large chests -Chest strap constantly slides and moves too close to the neck -Buckles seem cheap and don't always latch securely with a reassuring "snap"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backpack for long hikes This backpack is full of surprises. It comes with an integrated daypack which is rather small but perfect for day hikes within a longer backpacking trip, which is also ultralight. Two sidepockets, one meshed one waterproof (for phone). Straps are not hurting the shoulders and hip straps place comfortable. Expandable cupholders and slings for carbine hooks everywhere. The 75 liter looks small at first but can pack a lot once you use all the space properly. The main storage compartment is easily accessible from top, bottom and on the back. The only drawback on this pack is that it does not breathe very well on your back, so if that is an issue I would recommend to get another backpack.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gregory messed up a good product. I don't like the new back piece that they implemented. For me what sold me on the Gregory was the Molded back piece that fit my back and hips super comfortably in the older models. The newer model I am not impressed with the changes to the back piece at all. In fact I am actually taking it back due to the lack of comfort that it provides. The removable lumbar system is a pain to get right. I did over 40 miles and I couldn't get it right at all. It was not comfortable in the least. The strap system was a pain. I did not like the daypack/hydration bladder pack in it. It was too big for a hydration bladder and the bladder would move all over the pack even with strapping it down. I love the new pockets on the hip belt. I ran into another hiker on the JMT and he pretty much said the same thing I did. What made the old pack great was messed up in this pack. The pockets were a huge improvement over the old pack but not enough for me to keep this pack. I will be off searching for a newer pack again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Like the 2014 pack better than '15, but still good Already own an early 2010 model; love it. Decided to upgrade before our trip to hike in the Grand Canyon and Philmont NM. Bought the closeout of last years model (2014) and purchased this new model (2015) to compare. the 2014 model shows continuous improvement over the 2010 but is same design. 2015 model is a complete redesign that maintains the famous "Cadillac" fit and comfort of the Baltaro. 2015 has some positives and some real/potential disadvantages. Negatives: 1.Gregory replaced the rugged solid aluminum stay with a "coat hanger" internal frame, two aluminum rods that I could readily bend, not sure how well these will hold up. Also, I think this is why they have the new lumbar pad, because the frame is not as stiff in the lower back and probably where some of the weight savings of the new pack come from. 2. They reversed the zippers on the side pockets. If you open these while you have your pack leaning against a log, loose items will fall out and you have to roll the pack forward to access. 3. The brain is divided into two compartments and the zipper now goes front to back. I personally like the single large compartment with attachment points inside. Never had problems with loose items falling out. 4. Rain cover not as nice as Gregory's retail sale cover, doesn't have self storage bag. I like to clip onto the pack exterior on rainy days for quick access. 5. Many of the exterior attachment points were removed and the remaining ones don't seem as durable (not gusseted). I like hanging things all over my pack (i.e. crocks, rain cover, snack bag etc.) 6. Removed the heavy duty zipper on the lower compartment. This is really nice when trying to stuff a large sleeping bag in there, didn't worry about zipper failure. Positives: 1. Still better than competitors. 2. Like the new hydration sleeve/day pack 3. Hey at least it comes with a rain cover 4. Nice dry storage on the hip belt for a smaller cell phone. I wish they made the hip pouches larger/interchangeable for snacks and compass. 5. The exterior center pocket seems larger and has an elastic mesh that is handy for loose items (rather than store pack cover there) Included some photos below to try and show the differences. Perhaps my concerns will prove not important and the new frame system will prove as durable. However for now I am staying with the 2014 model and will let other backpackers test the new frame and work the bugs out of the new design. And as always, Gregory stands behind their products, with their free repairs. Cheers!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from so close to perfection I spend 3 to 4 weeks a year on the trail and under the stars. Not as much as some but enough to get to know my equipment. I've owned Karrimor, Ems, Deuter, and Lowe Alpine packs. Believe the hype. Gregory has nailed the back system. Simply disappears on me, 40 pounds included. Never change! I wish I could have given 5 stars, as there are many other things to like. But the material, Gregory, is the least tear resistant I've met on a serious backpack. Almost every minor abrasion causes a tear. I'm afraid to lean in up against a tree or a rock. That's the only major. The sleeping bag compartment needs to be bigger, and actually fit one more easily, but that's minor. 4.5 stars. Make 'em of tougher stuff, even if they weigh a bit more, and it'll be the only pack I buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Pack I'm an assistant scoutmaster and bought this pack for a backpacking trip on the AT with my son's scout troop. This was my first real backpacking trip. First, kudos to REI for having sandbags to test the packs loaded as well as a torso measuring tool. I tried 3 packs and on me, this one was the most comfortable on me (your mileage may vary). I'm 6'3" and 195 pounds. We did 9 miles on the AT and an offshoot trail to our campsite. The first 2 miles included more than 1000 feet of increased elevation. With 3 liters of water in a platypus, I had close to 30 pounds of stuff and backpack. The pack was comfortable and fit all of the equipment I needed. I did not make use of the day pack or rain cover (thankfully on the latter). The belt pouches were good for protein bars. I prefer to keep my phone in my pocket, but the waterproof pocket is a nice touch for that as well. All of the straps worked well for me. I only had a light sleeping pad strapped to the outside. If you're in the market for a pack of this size, I do suggest checking it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This pack is fantastic, my wife and I took this and the Female equivalent on a recent trip to Guadalupe Peak. It held up well and was like carrying a marshmallow on our backs. Very comfortable for the 40+ pounds we were both carrying. If you are on the fence between this and Osprey go Gregory all day long.

I measured my torso at 19". Is it possible I can get away with the large pack for more volume? Or should I stick with the medium size? Thanks

Asked by: BackpackNoob
Based on your torso length, we recommend the medium pack. The large pack has a torso length that is too long for you and may be uncomfortable.
