I own several different sizes of various models of Gregory packs. The Freia 22 makes a great day pack. It holds a ton and is very comfortable and balanced. The pockets are easy to load. So what are the two downsides? It looks more like a book bag than a technical pack. Because it looks so ordinary and doesn't seem all that amazing, the price is a bit inflated for what it is. That said, because it's comfortable and does the job, I am going to keep it. I think the black one is a cool color combo, but I was afraid the black would absorb the sun's rays when on my back and just feel really hot, so I opted for the light gray.

I needed a pack that could hold extra gear while on a day long ski trip with my kids. This is perfect. The profile is slim which means my arms do not swing into when I ski. It is very comfortable as well and does not leave me with aching shoulders at the end of the adventure.
