Fit my 5 foot tall son (size medium) and is very adjustable with many cool pockets. He doesn't understand how cool all the many pockets truly are but it is very comfortable for him to wear. Love this website! This will be great on short expeditions. We got him a bigger one for the 5 day trip.

This pack will be my three-season day scramble pack. I has sufficient space to carry my ten essentials and all the clothing that I carry but usually don't need to put on. The pockets are numerous enough and well situated. The top pocket I can access easily enough while wearing the pack. The waste band pockets are nice but slightly too small in that they won't fit my compass. The pocket on the back is handy for things I don't use often but would like to access quickly, such as my first aid kit.
The pack is comfortable. I like the lumbar padding and the mesh back. I haven't used it when it was hot but bushwhacking in 60 degree weather didn't get too sweaty.
My issues with this pack are generally minor. The tool attachments seem a bit precarious. They don't seem terribly secure under the best conditions and tend to loosen over time. The insecurity is because they are hooks that you tighten down.
The biggest issue is the lack of attachment points. I could not use this as a winter pack. I have a hard time attaching a spare carabiner let alone my shovel and snowshoes.

I bought this online not really knowing what to expect. I am usually going into a store to try on a pack before I buy it. I love, love this pack! It is so well laid out, a lot of thought was put into the design. The fit is perfect, I like the fact that Gregory packs come in sizes. I am tall for a girl and the medium is a perfect fit. The suspension is awesome, it keeps the pack off my back. We will be trekking for 10 days through Italy in May, I can hardly wait!

I was looking for a mid-size pack for winter hiking and snowshoeing. I looked at many packs but kept coming back to this one. It includes a raincover, a comfortable hip belt, and I can secure my snowshoes fairly easily. The sleeping bag compartment stores my emergency gear as well as items I want to get at quickly. I found the pack to be comfortable when loaded (30 pounds)and easy to adjust when moving, though the straps tended to stay secure. If you are looking for a nice day pack or overnighter you cannot go wrong with the Gregory Z40.
