Paragon 58

rated 5 of 5 stars Infinitesimal adjustability, standout breathability, ridiculous comfort! As a satisfied owner of Gregory's Baltoro 85 and 75 GZ backpacks, I anticipated getting some trail time in with Gregory's new Paragon 58. Gregory Packs is no strangers to turning out coveted thru-hike size backpacks. In 2015, the Gregory Baltoro 85 laid claim to Backpacker Magazine's Editor Choice Gold Award and Outside Magazine's Gear of the Year Award. Heavyweight hauler comfort is what they are known for. As a review ranger… Full review

Z 40

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great build quality and very versatile. This pack offers all you need. I have had this pack for 11 months now and I really can't be more happy. It has some of above stated flaws, but that is just my personal opinion. I've mostly used it on multi-day hikes throughout woods and mountain areas and I am very satisfied. Came after I had sold my Osprey Farpoint 70. Personally I think that it is a bit heavy with those 1400g in size L, but I usually pack it very light no matter where I go, so it never was… Full review

Paragon 58

rated 3 of 5 stars This newly released lightweight backpack is equipped with user-friendly features without adding unnecessary weight. Supreme comfort meets a lighter base pack weight! This backpack is ideal for both the casual overnight hiker, and the long distance backpacker covering ground day in, and day out. Gregory has entered the ultralight market with its new line of lightweight backpacks, the Men's Paragon and Women's Maven series. Recreational backpacking has become obsessed with becoming UL (ultralight)… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Bought in 2000. Still going strong. Bomb proof durability. One of the best packs I've ever even heard of. Old school Gregory. This thing is amazing. Has held up for working on 20 years now. What more can you ask? And I've had as much as 75+ lbs in it. Yes, the ride gets a little... eh, when she's loaded that heavy. But she was never designed for that, and still takes it like a champ. My go-to for the tough and long ones. Full review

3D Hydro 3L Reservoir

rated 2 of 5 stars A reservoir with innovations that make sense, but durability could be a big issue. The main advantage is the three-dimensional shape of the reservoir, which allows it to easily fill and dry out. Other plus factors include a fold-away hook to hang it up, an easy-to-use open/shut valve, a sturdy hang hook (if you use it with a Gregory pack), and a baffle to prevent water from sloshing. With or without a Gregory pack, this reservoir should have been a worthy competitor for your hydration needs. Unfortunately,… Full review
