Just Right

Overall, Very happy with the Zulu 40L. I purchased this primarily as a Day pack but found there is enough room for this pack to function as an a good overnight pack as well. Two good size Storage compartments in the Brain of the Back, a large Main compartment and there is a way to access the botto... Read More

  • Great light hiking bag
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Kseez73 from New Hampshire on Thursday, September 6, 2018
    This is a great bag. While not the lightest bag you can buy, it’s very Light. Has all of the convenience features I like while hiking(pockets on hip belt, built in rain cover, large stash pocket, hydration sleeve). I would highly recommend this pack.
  • Great backpack for Search & Rescue
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Psydoc from New Mexico on Sunday, July 29, 2018
    I was needing a new backpack for search & rescue work and this pack fits the bill. It is large enough to carry enough gear to sustain me in the field for 48 hours. I especially like the hydration reservoir, which helps keep my hands free during a hike. I measure about 17 inches along my spine, which would suggest a smaller size pack but the large fits just fine. Plenty of pockets and the zippered back opening is sweet. It rides well on my hips and is very comfortable. Need to keep your load under about 30 pounds. I carry 20 to 25 pound loads and it works well in that brange. Overall, I love this pack.
  • Instant comfort
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tom from Tucson on Thursday, July 19, 2018
    I received the large size since I am 6'2". I know back packs and getting them to sit just right may or may never happen. This pack fit right - right out of the box. It's not a minimalist pack which is the trend these days so it has a lot of options and straps and loose strap ends but once you get used to it you realize this is what makes such a pack so versatile. So it works for day hikes with modest gear to a light overnight pack and you can cinch things down or expand them and it ride just right. The ventilated back panel is a must for me and this has it! Gregory and Osprey make great backpacks - buy whatever one in your size you can get on sale. I have 3 Ospery's and this Gregory is every bit as good.
  • I love this bag
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Big Jlee from Castle Rock, Colorado on Monday, November 13, 2017
    Just took this bag out for a week of hunting, I was using a bigger Marmot bag prior, no camping just long days of cold then heat then cold again. This bag is maybe a little big for a daypack, but I could cinch down the sides and make it smaller. I really liked the ability to open the bag from the middle instead of pulling everything from the top. My only complaints, the side water bottle pockets get cut off with the cinch straps and the top is a little floppy. But overall I really enjoyed this bag and will use it next year.
  • Broke first day out
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Hiking A. T. from Connecticut on Tuesday, October 31, 2017
    Hiking A.T. In Connecticut, 4 miles in my shoulder strap broke at the seam. I had to tie the two straps together so i can make it back out. Maybe a defective bag but as a hiker, I count on that piece of equipment!

  • “Is the Zulu 40 really shorter in length than the Zulu 35? The specs say the zulu 40 has the following dimensions, 25.5x13.5x9.5 and the Zulu 35 has following dimensions, 27x13.5x9. Is that true? ”

About Gregory

After designing his first backpack as a Boy Scout at the age of 14, Wayne Gregory dedicated his career to making outstanding gear, a mission that eventually led him to create Gregory Mountain Products in 1977. From the beginning, Gregory backpacks have been engineered using a combination of field research and customer feedback in order to enhance durability, fit and function. The brand has pioneered many industry firsts, such as multiple pack sizes with different frame, harness and waist belt dimensions. They also developed the first waist belt system that offered a variety of hip angles. Not surprisingly, Gregory backpacks have been praised in a wide range of publications, from Backpacker magazine to National Geographic Adventure.
