User Review: Gregory Palisade 80
Height of Owner: 6'4"
Price Paid: Around $250
I absolutely love this pack. I purchased it in '99 and broke it in backpacking up and down Ireland's West coast a month later. Quality is wonderful and it had enough room for everything I took with me. What I couldn't/didn't want to fit inside I attached to the daisy chains and off I went. (this included a couple nalgene bottles and my bodhran)
I've tried friend's Dana and ArcTeryx packs and none feel as good as this does to me. With my height it's hard to find anything that really fits just right, expecially in backpacks but this one does the job. Unless Gregory really messes something up in the future, I intend to stay with this manufacturer when the time comes to upgrade.
