What you get This big-trip Gregory pack sports big-league comfort with a dynamic, swiveling suspension (fits women’s hips especially well). The precurved shoulder straps and well-padded hipbelt easily subdue 50-pound loads. It may not be for ounce-counters, but you get smart extras like a waterproof hipbelt pocket and removable daypack, and tough-as-nails construction.

Trail cred “This is the first major piece of backpacking gear I ever bought,” says Rocky Mountain Field Editor Elisabeth Kwak-Hefferan. “Twelve years later, it’s still the pack I grab for big, epic hikes.”
