It’s no secret that spring is one of the greatest times to hit the trail. In fact, between thru-hiking attempts, weekend backpacking trips, and day hikes, we’d be willing to wager that you have at least a few days on the trail ahead of you. Wherever your adventures take you, we’ve got your perfect pack companion. Here are three of our favorites from Gregory that you’ve gotta try.

The Versatile, Go- Anywhere Pack

Stout 65 (M) and Amber 60 (W) $179.95

Whether you’re hitting the trail for a long weekend, or backpacking through Europe, these full featured packs have plenty of space for everything you need. We love the abundance of storage pockets and the comfortable suspension with lumbar support.


The Perfect Blend of Lightweight + Supportive

Optic 48 (M) and Octal 45 (W) $189.95

Finally! A lightweight pack that still offers a supportive suspension. Starting at a skinny 2.3 pounds, this pack still boasts and efficient aluminum and mesh suspension. Perfect for thru-hikes, light overnights, and technical day loads.


No Fuss Hydration + Plenty of Room

Inertia 30 (M) and Swift 30 (W) $119.95

Love the convenience of a hydration pack, but hate cleaning a bladder? Gregory’s new 3-D Hydro systems perform like a hydration bladder, but expand wide for easy cleaning an drying. Plus, at a 30 liter capacity, the Inertia and Swift offer plenty of room for whatever weather the trail throws your way.
