User Review: Gregory Palisade 80
Number of Pockets: 2
Max. Load Carried: 75 lbs
Height of Owner: 5' 7"
Price Paid: $270
I have found this to be a very good pack when used with loads weighing between 35 and 60 pounds. At higher weights, 65-75 lbs, its frame and hipbelt are not stiff enough and do not properly distribute the load. The hipbelt and suspension are great and easily adjustable. I used this pack for the entire summer of '99 daily while teaching backpacking. During this time I encountered no undue wear or manufacturing defects (which I can't say for a few friend's dana packs). It's a great pack.
