A wicked pack for streamlined weekenders.

At once fully featured and streamlined, the Gregory Baltoro 65 Backpack is a versatile weekender pack that will have you crushing the miles in serious comfort. With nearly 4000 cubic inches of gear-toting capacity, it has plenty of room for all your stuff, provided you don't plan on bringing a generator or 16 different fleeces with you. A hyper-adjustable Response AFS suspension provides a comfortable, personalized ride. Both the pre-curved Auto-Cant harness and EVA foam Auto-Fit hip belt pivot independently to conform to your body and keep you balanced on tough terrain, and the single aluminum stay provides lightweight structure and helps distribute weight evenly across your back, hips, and shoulders.

The Baltoro's fit and carry are what set it apart, but it's also optimized to hold three days worth of backpacking gear and adapt to the demands of your trip. The removable lid has two pockets and doubles as a lumbar pack if you're going on short base camp explorations or summit hikes, and the pockets on the front, side, and hip belt keep layers, snacks, maps, and other essentials where you can reach them. Gregory also built in a hideaway water bottle pocket on the side of the pack and included a hydration-compatible sleeve with multiple easy-to-feed hose ports. A series of lash points, loops, and compression straps hold everything from trekking poles to ice axes to that sweet stick you just found, and the DWR-coated water-resistant zippers and reinforced bottom help stop the elements from messing up your weekend.

A comfortable work horse

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Tried a few different packs for section hiking the AT,the lightweight ones gave up comfort and toughness,this one is the sweet spot.Love it.It will be the pack I use when attempting my thru hike.


Love it!

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I really like this backpack. The 65 liter makes a weekend trip luxurious and is the perfect size for 5 day trips. It is extremely comfortable to wear, even when weighed down with a lot of crap. I prefer to strap the tent and pad to the outside freeing up inside room for clothes, food, etc. You can really load this thing down! My entire life's in that bag, no joke. If you cant fit it in this pack, you probably dont need it for your trip.


Tested in Japan's Northern Alps

    Just did a 3-day hike in Japan's Northern Alps...Mt Sugoroku and Mt Kasagatake, roughly around 2,700m up. Bought this pack for the trip and was very satisfied. I carried about 25lbs (incl food & water) and for the most part, didn't feel much stress at all. Shoulder straps were super comfy, no soreness from the hipbelts, and everything packed in very easily. The hydration bladder / daypack were nice, but didn't need to use the daypack function. Really liked the angled bottle holder that can fold away. Just reach back and grab, easy to put back too...well designed. Comes with a raincover too, and while I didn't have to use it, it's great to have just in case and saves $$ by not having to buy one. Really only 2 things which I think could improve the design (but could also increase weight slightly). 1) the waterproof hipbelt pocket is a bit small. Can't fit my iPhone 6-plus in it. 2) the side stretch pocket is only on one side. Having it on both sides would be nice. Other than that, very glad I purchased this pack. Not to mention (although aesthetics don't really matter when backpacking) this pack is prob one of the best looking designs out there right now!

    Excellent Pack

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I picked up the Baltoro in May, and I have used it twice since then. Both trips were 4 days 3 nights in Northern New Mexico (Santa Fe National Forrest). The pack has straps and clips in all of the places you would need them. The lower straps held my tent perfectly, and I didn't need to use an additional strap for security as I had with my previous pack. The main compartment is cavernous and holds just about everything you could possibly need. There is a nice clip to hang your hydration bladder (I have a 2.5L camel bak), and even with the bladder there is still ample room inside to carry all your essentials (I put my sleeping bag at the top of the compartment). There is also a detachable "daypack" inside, but I haven't had the need to use it yet. The outside vertical compartment is also roomy, and even with a full main compartment, the external compartment holds a lot of gear. The rain cover comes standard, which is awesome and saves you 20-30 bucks from having to buy aftermarket. The compartments all adjust with external straps, so you can tighten everything down once its packed up. There is literally plenty of usable storage in any compartment at any capacity(that can't always be said of many packs). Here is the BEST part... it is the most comfortable pack I have worn. The shoulder harness and belt fit like a glove, and are heavily padded for comfort. After 18 miles on my previous trip I finally started feeling the straps (it was about 5 with my old pack).It is incredibly stout and sturdy, and doesn't give even when bounding down mountain trails. I'll let the technical experts at Gregory explain their frame system, but just know that it works and works WELL! I found that it vented extremely well too. I am very satisfied with this pack, and Gregory hit a home run (must be why it was the backpack of the year). I would highly recommend this for anyone doing 3-4 day trips. Also, it had enough room to carry my fly rod and fly fishing essentials on top of all my camping gear!

    Excellent Pack

    How big can the waistbelt get on the large?

    Hey Jonathan,

    Large will fit waist sizes between 34 - 40 inches.


    Rules my universe with an iron fist

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I've had a bunch of packs and just didn't like the aesthetic of the big towering jobs. However, as I got more gear I needed more space and finally caved. This pack devours my 70m rope, drawers, gear, helmet (lunch fits nicely under it in its own specific pouch), platypus, guidebooks, first aid kit, webbing, knife, the lot. It's totally comfy, adjusts easily and I've not one complaint about it (and the net side pockets are great for that odwalla or whatever you're drinking on the way to a crag). The Velcro hoops snag a clipstick perfectly on one side, and your hiking poles on the other if you're facing a scramble or sketchy part of the hike so as to free up your hands.

    The Worlds Most Comfortable Backpack

    • Gender:Male
    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This pack is the most comfortable with heavy loads. The shoulder straps are well padded and do not dig in with loads greater than 40lbs. The shoulder straps and hip belts move with your body movement. The load carries at the hips better than any other pack in this class. This pack is more comfortable than the Osprey Atmos AG and is not that much heavier. It has better pockets and organization than the Atmos AG. The waterproof hip pocket is perfect to carry a cellphone. I bought this pack, with the Osprey Atmos 65 AG ,with the plans to return the lesser of the two packs. I will be keeping the Gregory Baltoro. I agree with Backpacker magazine awarding the pack Editors Choice Gold. This pack is amazing.

    Good insight. I have an Atmos AG 65 but have been thinking about exchanging it for the Baltoro 65. The Atmos AG was squeeky with heavy loads.
