The Zulu and Jade replace the Z/J series for 2016, and these streamlined, updated, lightweight packs feature a redesigned, low-profile CrossFlo ventilated suspension, improved shoulder harness design, and a new lumbar platform that provides increased comfort in all terrain. Lower profile cargo compartments improve balance while a new front stretch pocket makes it easier to grab and stash gear on the go. Meanwhile, Gregory added new fabrics and reinforcements to increase durability, and they flipped the U-zipper main access panel upside down for easier packing and unloading.Designed to strike the balance between daypacks and trekking packs, the Jade 53 is perfect for the trips you actually have the time to take: overnights, long weekends, and four-day, three-night stays in the backcountry. The new CrossFlo suspension better supports multi-day loads over long distances, while its ventilated trampoline backpanel design keeps you cool on short and long hikes in all kinds of weather.
