Gregory Amber 44 Backpack - Internal Frame (For Women)
Closeouts. The perfect weekend warrior, Gregory's Amber 44 backpack is stabilized by a TrailFlex wishbone suspension. Along with an easy-access main compartment, multiple compression straps, pockets and daisy chain lash points provide carrying versatility.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by over 40 and hiking from oregon on Wednesday, August 16, 2017This one is made for a womens body.Just pay attention to the weight limit. My friend over packed her Gregory and it rode heavy on the upper hip area. Easy access for your things and sturdy.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by helizzza from Colorado on Saturday, June 3, 2017I am very happy with my Amber 44 backpack from Gregory. It fits me perfectly and has all the right pockets! The top flap come off for a convenient day pack and I love that you can access the main compartment from a zipper near the bottom as well as the top! I am super excited to take it to Europe this summer and on some one night backpacking trips!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Trail Runner from Utah on Tuesday, April 4, 2017This no nonsense pack has what I need and nothing I don't. It carries a full load well with nice weight distribution. It's also nice and adjustable for small loads as you can easily tighten things up without a lot of fuss and excess dangling attachments. The rainfly is a real bonus. This is a great pack for a sweet price.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Jen from Holland on Tuesday, March 28, 2017I have put about 25 miles on this pack since buying it a few weeks ago; mostly 5-6 mile training hikes to get ready for a weekend outing. So far, I'm very pleased. I have about 25 lbs. in it, and once it's on, it feels like nothing. My only gripe is that there's no where handy to stash a water bottle (the side pockets are hard to get into when the pack's on.) There is a water bladder pass through, but I like bottles, so that's kind of annoying. Love the roomy pockets on the hip belt, and the two separate lid pockets.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by summerlove from New England on Wednesday, February 8, 2017My torso measures about 17 inches but I'm usually more comfortable in a larger pack, so I ordered a medium at first. It was comfortable and held the weight on my hips but I felt like it could be more stable. Also, I'm 5'4" 130 lbs and the waist belt was somewhat large at the smallest settings. I returned it for a small which fits perfectly. I packed up for a four day trip and had more than enough room. When fully loaded, cinching the compression straps effectively stabilizes the pack. It's also perfect for lesser loads because you can use the straps to reign in the extra fabric. I ordered the Gregory Amber 34 thinking the 44 would be too large for day to day uses but they looked essentially the same, with the 44 having the benefit of the added capacity when I need it. I love the smaller pockets on the lid, the hip belt pockets, and that it comes with a rain cover. Overall this pack is awesome!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rachel from Santa Cruz, California on Monday, October 10, 20165'1, 120 lb female. Wasn't sure if this was going to fit me, but it fit perfectly. Order arrived in 4 days exactly as described. Really great quality and exceeded expectations. Perfect size for a carry on and for my trip to Nepal. Love the pink accent! Would highly recommend this product.
Reviewed by Julia from WA on Friday, September 9, 2016I'm madly in love with this pack. I've had Gregory packs for years & was so disappointed when they started changing over to the more trendy Osprey-style "hang off away from your back" fit. That style just doesn't work for me at all--so uncomfortable & feels off balanced. Luckily, Gregory's Amber fit is old school--super stable & close to your core.
The Amber 44 expands to carry a lot of gear or shrinks down for quick jaunts. I've used mine for 100 mile long sections on the PCT, or cinched down tight for short day hikes. It rides stable and close to your back, keeping the weight easy to manage. The waist pockets are big enough to fit your cell phone, camera, snacks, etc. and are easy to access.
The pack feels like good quality--tough fabric, sturdy zippers, tight stitching.
If you're looking for a fit similar to the classic Gregory packs, this is it. If, however, you prefer the newer mesh "airy" fit, the J series will probably make you happier.
