Lightweight, Roomy

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Julia from Wa on Thursday, February 2, 2017
I own (and LOVE) the Amber 44L, so when it was time to replace my very well-loved, yet *elderly*, larger Gregory pack (the oooold Jade) I looked to the 60L Gregory Amber. I wear a size S in the 44L, so ordered a size S in the 60L. Unfortunately, the fit was different. The frame of the pack came up too far behind my neck/head, so I was unable to put my head all the way back to look up, as I would if I was climbing a steep section of rock or hard snow. Darn it! So, I exchanged the size S torso for an XS, with the hopes that I could still swing it & the frame would be a little shorter behind my head. Unfortunately, the XS torso length is very, very short. I measure right at about 16", and the XS in the Amber 60L was easily 2" too short for me in the torso. I do wear the size S torso in the Amber 44L, so I think the 60L frame is just a no-go for my body type. The frame did sit a lot lower, though, so if you have a super short torso & are looking for a larger volume (but lightweight) pack--this may be a keeper for you!
