    This is a great pack for my son. He used it for a week-long 50-miler, it carried the weight great!

    This pack is awesome! It helped me get my gear sub-20 lbs. Its features are such an advantage over my old pack. The quality is outstanding. I look forward to getting years of good use out of it.

    I was going to buy an Osprey, but Osprey started getting involved in the State of Utah politics. I can't believe they tried to force their will on MY elected officials! They lost my business forever! I am happy to discover Gregory. The Gregory pack is better anyway! Win-win.

    I had been looking at similar Gregory and Lowe Alpine models, and this one struck me as a steal. The price was unbeatable for a quality 65L pack that is one season old (honestly, what's the difference??) I have not yet taken it out in the backcountry yet, but I've packed most of my stuff and I love the compartments. I purchased the Large and I am 5'11" and it seems to fit well so far.

    From the outside and in photos, Gregory packs look very minimalistic without all the pockets and loops you may see on an Osprey, but they are hidden very well. The main compartment has a genius drawstring and pull tab that is easy to open and opens wide, so there are no zippers to break when you stuff it. It also has a U zipper so you can access it from the bottom and sides. The same goes for the secondary compartment on the outside of the main one just without the zipper: just a buckle at the top and no zippers.
    It's hard to see in the photos, but there are loops on the outside (again, minimalistic).
    There is no mesh water bottle pocket on the side, but instead a tall, expandable pocket that holds more than bottles.
    The lid has two different pockets (one inside, one outside) that are designed so you can access all of the vital small things, which gives the top a square shape, which is better than normal single-opening lids.
    Now the part that I love the most is the detachable daypack on the inside that normally holds a water reservoir. It is a quality ~10L pack that is extremely lightweight and well-designed.

    The only issue I've had is the pull tab of the drawstring main compartment snapping. It is still usable, but I emailed Gregory for a replacement part. The rest of the pack has less breakable parts and zippers so I have high expectations for the longevity.

    I used this for a 15 mile backpack trip over the weekend. I loaded it with 35lbs. of gear and it really handled it well. Very comfortable suspension that hugs the load to you. It holds more than my previous SD 65 liter pack does. The daypack was great to hold a reservoir and rain gear for a 4 mile side hike. It would have held a few more smaller items should I have needed it. Over all seems like a durable pack that is really comfortable.
