User Review: Gregory Z65
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $139.99
Great hauler of loads under 45 lbs loads.
- Light for the amount of space and support
- Ease of pack ability
- Small hip belt pockets
Fit: Sizing is true to form for Gregory, as usual measured my torso and found appropriate size on the chart and bam it fit.
Comfort: The ventilation is fantastic when doing summer trips in the RRG Kentucky.
Capacity: I had it packed for a fall fly fishing trip and I topped out at 47 lbs and it was a little rough the first couple days. Since that time I have kept all my loads under 35 lbs, which it preforms remarkably well
Organization & Accessibility: Having the two entry points allows for easy packing opportunity and load balance (you don't have to worry where you put things you can go by weight) thanks to the panel entry. I also enjoy having the large pocket on the back for items that i need to get to quickly and do not want to mess with re-compressing my pack.
Ride: It is remarkable balanced and stable with loads under 45 lbs, loads under 30 you don't even know it's there.
Compression: The compression strap were designed with thought in mind and usability.
Ease of Use: No torso adjustments, just measure, find your size, packet it up, put it on and rock out.
Features: The only downside I have had is the hip belt pockets are smaller than other pack companies provide, which is not that big an issue but a little more space would be appreciated.
