Looking for my first internal frame pack and have narrowed it to the following choices:

Gregory Whitney
Gregory Palisade
DanaDesign GlacierLTD
DanaDesign TerraplaneLTW

Would like to know any thoughts or experiences with these packs.

I have used a Kelty Trekker External for about 6 years.

Don't think you will go wrong with any of those packs. Given those four choices, I would go with the Dana Glacier. I prefer Dana over Gregory (though only slightly) and the Glacier is a bit smaller than the Terraplane. You won't be tempted to pack as much in.

I have used a Gregory Palisade for about 3 years now. It is a very large, versatile, and comfortable pack. However, it is heavy (about 7 lbs). I think the new ones are about 6 pounds, which is still too heavy in my opinion.

However, if you are looking to carry 40+ pounds, it is an excellant pack.

I'm not familiar with the other packs.
