Description

A sturdy pack that accommodates your body, your movements, and your hiking plans.

Gregory gave the Baltoro 65 a hefty helping of cargo capacity and a supremely comfortable suspension system so that even when the pack is fully loaded on a one-, two-, or three-day trip, it will offer stable support for mile after mile.

  • Response AFS Suspension system incorporates a pivoting shoulder harness and pivoting hip-belt that move with your body throughout your stride (rather than resisting against your body's movements)
  • Pre-curved foam harness and thermo-molded backpanel conform to your shape without chafing against it
  • Single aluminum stay prevents barreling and transfers the load to your hips
  • Detachable top lid makes a waistbelt pack when you go on side-hikes or quick summit attempts from camp
  • Hydration sleeve (reservoir sold separately) and water bottle pocket keep H2O close at hand
  • Includes removable divider for sleeping bag compartment
  • Plenty of pockets keep small items organized
  • Highly durable fabric and DWR-coated water-resistant zippers stand up to abrasion and the elements

Full time life use.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this backpack 2 yrs ago or about when it first came out. I liked it, since then we have seen thousands of miles together. I've been living out of it since then, It has strong materials that will take whatever the send its way. I've done AT section hikes, Hitchhiking around the US (getting thrown into beds of trucks and used as a bench, it held up great) even throwing it off a train. The straps are good, can get irritating after a few hours, they tend to sit at an angle and not flat, but the hip belt is great. plenty of padding all the way around. I found that it had too much space and i over packed even when trying not too but i have carried a 75lb load comfortably for a weekend. (not recommending you do that, but it can be done). I would suggest this to those getting into backpacking, but im heading down the ultralight path now so my pack is retiring.
The only thing that annoyed me is that no matter what the weight was (25lbs - 75lbs) the straps and back supports would squeak non stop . and i had an expert at an rei look at how i was set up and he couldn't figure out why it squeaked. so thats my one major issue with it.
I shall post a photo of it when i get one. but it served well.

Great backpack!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this pack after trying Osprey and Arcteryx comparable bags. Despite slightly added weight, this one felt by far the most comfortable and carried loads the best.

I took this on a 4 day backpacking trip with about 40 pounds and found it to be great. Lots of pockets, good load balance, GREAT lumbar support and stylish and durable.

I would highly recommend.

Squeek squeek.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this pack, the only disadvantage I noticed is the squeeking sound it starts making, especially near the hipbelt.

The Cadillac Pack

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great size, incredibly comfortable, durable. Gregory is a great company. They back their products like no other. For non-ultralight backpackers, this is an amazing pack. It weighs ~5lbs, but doesn't have gimmicks or unnecessary features. Super thick and padded waistbelt, comfy shoulder straps. Would definitely buy it again.

Extremely comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Used on AT with great success. Multiple access points make for easy access to top, middle and bottom items in pack!

Baltoro is a decent pack

The Gregory Baltoro 65 backpack is a great pack, with a decent amount of room, and a very thought out design. The Gregory Baltoro 65 backpack is made of 210D DDR and 210D x 420D HD flat weave fabrics, and are extremely durable and weatherproof to a degree. Using this pack the last year, I have some up's and down's for this pack, mostly positive things.

Not bad...

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

This pack is honestly comfortable with a considerable amount of weight, once you get it adjusted correctly. I'm honestly not used to packs that you can't adjust the yoke on, but i figured it out. Overall a great and comfortable pack.

Packing it Full!

Packing it Full!

Packed it pretty full for a hike in Colorado! It did really well!

After a Couple Work Outs

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

I got this on sale even though I didn't really need it but I just loved all the features and I love everything about it! All the features are great, all the pockets, sleeping bag compartment, moving waist and shoulder straps, moss green is killer and fits well in the woods! Love it but I cant wait to get into a actual trek with it! I will be getting out with it within the end of next month so ill update then. So far my only complaint is I like my waist to be pretty good and tight and the plastic in the cushioning causes mild irritation that feels mildly like pain but that us just with weights and not actual pack weight. I have a 18" torso length and read to go with the small and I think I would go with the medium because feel but again ill update later. I love it a lot so far and will update when I know more!

LOOK NO FURTHER

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This pack is everything you could ever need. It cinches down so as not to be huge and bulky when you don't need it to be, while you can loosen the straps and fit in it anything you could need. I have taken this pack on many weekend long trips and will be taking it with me on my nomadic journey around the world. I had originally purchased an Osprey pack, but immediately didn't feel the support I felt with my friend's Baltoro 75. I then found this one (the gold looking color online is totally inaccurate, it is a friggin' cool moss green and brown color) on steepandcheap.com and had to get it. The hip belts feel like pillows, even when carrying weight. It's just a great over-all pack with everything you could need. Cool, useful pockets as well.

Great Backpack

Very comforable and well balanced for 1-3 night trips. Sturdy with solid zippers and multiple pockets/straps to expand what you can carry. Only minor improvement suggestion is to have the waist belt strap easier to loosen - otherwise this backpack is worth every penny!!

I just received this pack today. I'm new...

I just received this pack today. I'm new to backpacking and bought it for a trip next month. Are you really supposed to be able to fit your bag in the sleeping bag compartment? That's probably a stupid question, but I have a Sierra Designs Buddy Rad down bag that I bought several years ago, and I don't see how it's going to fit in that compartment, even when in the compression sack that came with the bag.

Responded on

It's sort of an acquired knack, but it will fit once you get the gist of it. Your new pack will also loosen up and break in a bit after using it for a little while. Is the sack that came with your sleeping bag actually a compression sack with straps, or is it just a regular stuff sack? That will make a big difference. Make sure all your load compression straps on the pack are loose, then shove one end of the sleeping bag in first and swing the other in while you push from that outside end. Do it at least a few times, then park it there for a few days. Do that and things should get easier once everything is loosened up.You'll be surprised.

Deb,

If you are having trouble fitting your sleeping bag into the compartment, then you can remove the material that separates the main compartment from the sleeping bag compartment. I own the Gregory Baltoro 75L, and never leave the separator in. In my opinion, removing that material gives you more room to work with.

Responded on

the sleeping bag compartment is really just another pocket. it's not about "this is where your sleeping bag should always go," but more about in most situations, the designers felt that was the best place for a bag to go for optimal weight distribution. ideally, you bag should fit in there, if it doesn't totally fit, it's still ok. also, different bags and packs are designed for different applications. a sleeping bag made for high altitude mountaineering wont fit well in bag designed for fast and light summer trips.

Thanks for this video. It explains the measuring system well.

Wow! What a difference!

I took this pack out of the box and immediately noticed that "Electric Yellow" had a very slight greenish tinge to it, and wasn't the thermonuclear yellow depicted in the pictures. I can't say whether I was disappointed or not, but the color has grown on me so I am satisfied.

I loaded it up with a 45� sleeping bag. my 20� fit, but barely. I then added two changes of clothes, full rain gear, a hammock tent, a bevy of camping supplies like a stove, water filter, headlamp, hat, gloves, etc, and it all fit. my first aid and inflatable sleeping pad fit as well, and I put another foam sleeping pad on the outside. I filled a large 48oz Nalgene (the tall one) and stuck it in the bottle holder. It didn't fit, per say, but the bungee cord easily looped across the cap and the whole operation stayed put.

Once it was loaded, I added a DSLR camera and a pair of big headphones, and a spare pair of shoes, and headed to NYC for two days. I walked about 10 miles around the city with the Baltoro on my back over a wool shirt and a fleece. it was about 40-50� and I never got too warm or sweaty.

In fact, I never exerted myself. The dynamic hipbelt and shoulders were a dream! The pack stayed balanced, and I felt like I was carrying the load directly over my center of gravity. It was extremely comfortable for 35lbs. I was sold!

I will update this when I take it into the backcountry next month.

Love it

I've used it on overnighters and on weeklong winter trips. Loaded it with at least 60 lbs and it carried well.
The waist belt is very comfortable and moves with me very well, the shoulder straps are well padded too, although the waist will support most of the weight easily. The load adjusters are well placed for use while wearing and work great.
The sleeping bag compartment fits even my 0� winter bag ( Marmot couloir) in a large sea to summit dry compression sack.
I like the front access to the main compartment, the buckles work well and didn't ice up in sticky snow.
Cons: seems small for a 65L, noticeably smaller than the Arcteryx and Osprey I've used. The vertical zipper on the rear facing pocket is pretty much impossible to get anything in or out of when the pack is full, I try not to use it for anything not soft and stuffable. It would work for a small jacket, a beanie, some socks or a long sleeve shirt. I wish it was more functional, like the pocket on the Arcteryx Bora 65.
The compression straps are well placed and were strong enough to hold my skis on with my Scarpa Mobe boots attached.
I actually like the design of the Arcteryx bag better, but the comfort of the harness makes me happier wearing the Gregory. I'm 5'11" with a 32" waist and I got the medium.
All in all, a great pack.

Love it

Any advise on how to put the divider back...

Any advise on how to put the divider back in place for the sleeping bag compartment. Thanks.

Best Answer Responded on

Turn the tabs on the divider sideways to fit through the plastic rectangular keepers on the inside of the pack itself.

Responded on

Yeah, it looks a little weird and it looks like you might be doing it wrong but it is right when you turn the divider sideways, just keep playing with it and you'll get it.

Happy Camper

I really like this pack. I'm not an expert by any means, but so far I'm happy. Took this out just recently on an overnighter in the Red River Gorge in KY. Pretty steep terrain and really never even notice the pack on my back. Carries the weight really well.
