With a 4800cu in volume in a size medium, the Gregory Keeler backpack can handle everything from four-day weekends to bare-bones weeklong backcountry adventures.

- Backcountry Outlet

Your getaway vehicle for getting away from it all--be it an extended weekend trip or bare essentials backcountry excursion. Auto Cant ™ harness system mirrors the slope of your shoulders and width of your neck, eliminating rubbing and hot spots. Escape Harness uses bi-density foams laminated to the surface fabric which eliminates wrinkling when wrapping around shoulders and torso. Flo-Form® II molded backpanel features a soft layer next to your skin for cushioning; denser layers behind it provide form and support. Dual-density Wilderness Waistbelt is pre-curved to eliminate wrinkles, hugging the hips to provide greater comfort and load-carrying control. Single 7001-T6 aluminum stay and the hourglass FOAM-X framesheet are supportive yet torsionally flexible. Unique design offers three ways to get at your gear with top-loading, side and front access to main compartment. Hydration sleeve with an exit port holds a reservoir (sold separately) for hands-free hydration on the trail. Zippered side pockets with mesh organizers keep essentials close at hand. Features ice axe loop with keeper strap and reinforced gear loops. Made of tough Cordura® nylon with waterproof Shelter-Rite™ nylon/vinyl reinforcement on bottom for long-wearing durability.
