Gregory Backpack Review

The Gregory Backpack was engineered from the start to incorporate the customers ideas on what worked and what did not. Gregory was the first to build packs using a different frame, waist and shoulder straps to fit each person.

The waist belt is designed to adjust to different hip angles of the hiker, which helps the load to be carried more efficiently.

All the Gregory Backpacks have durable fabric that is designed to hold under stress and not rip, with reinforced seams and buckles.

Mens Baltoro 70 Pack

The Baltoro 70 Pack is designed to be comfortable to wear while trekking across the countryside. It has a system to adjust as your body moves, keeping pack well centered on your back and thereby lessening tension on the hips and shoulders.

This backpack has won an editor's choice award in 2008 from Backpacker magazine. The features of the Gregory Baltoro 70 are made for comfort, ease of access to the gear and a means to organize your equipment.

Gregory Back packs are roomy, with this model holding 70 liters of gear, that's a lot of space. Pockets for everything are a standard feature and water resistant panel on the bottom and zippers.

The top lid compartment is a nice place to keep items you will need frequently such as maps or rain gear. The overall weight of the pack is just over 5 pounds for the small size and 5 pounds, 14 ounces for the large Gregory Backpack model.

Note: The 70 pack is unavailable at most of the stores we monitor. Some stores may have it at a reduced price which suggests that size is discontinued. The 65 and 75 Baltoro are now available....
