Capacity and comfort for big-time weekends.
Know that feeling when it starts to get cold, you reach into your pack to pull out a puffy, and then you remember you left it at home because it didn't fit? No fun. Gregory's Baltoro 75 Backpack has over 4,500 cubic inches of gear-toting capacity to fit all the puffies, fleeces, and longjohns you need, so you can be seriously prepared on weekend backpacking trips or pack more efficiently for three or four-day excursions. 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 two, three, or four 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 basecamp 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 rocks and rain from putting some serious cramps in your backcountry style.

Great pack for carrying some weight
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The pack is just great. It is comfortable and can carry a ton. I carried 40 lbs (brought my large DSLR) and it felt great. The hip belt easily carried the weight and there was no shoulder fatigue. The storage is plentiful with lots of pockets and the through the front of the pack one can access the main compartment. That was a great feature. Attention to detail is excellent with choice materials and craftsmanship.
I did break the hydration system hose clip on the right-hand shoulder strap. That happened when I caught the hose on my hip when I put on the pack. I contacted Gregory and never got a response. No biggie.
I'm 6'3" 205lb and use the MEDIUM.
I highly recommend this pack!
I´m using it to hike mountains in Argentina, 6.000 to 7.000.
You can drop it, kick it, punch it, smashed it... it will resist.
The backpack has a lot of storage and its comfortable . You can distribute your stuff through the different pockets.
Something extra: It has a cover and a small backpack for short distances.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Finally had this pack for a few seasons and I'm happy with the purchase. It will easily carry all the gear you need for a week out in the wilderness. The outside access flaps make this pack convenient to use and worth while, and the small outside access pouches carry the small snacks you need on the go.
Just keep in mind packs are all about the fit, so if it doesnt fit your body, well then it really doesnt matter how cool or pretty it is.
I am 6'1" 180lbs and use the large....
We meet at last
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've been in the market for the perfect pack for over a year, and when this one came up on Backcountry, I jumped right in. I'm 6' 2", have longer legs and probably a shorter-than-average torso length for someone my height. The Medium length fits perfectly. I love the front access, the bottom access, and the included rain cover. Super comfortable and lightweight. The only thing I would improve upon this pack is having a real "lid lumbar day pack." It does not function like other removable lid packs I've used and this pack actually comes with more of a cinch-sack style day pack which you can connect inside the main compartment. I might even seek out a similar lid pack to connect to this one instead of using the one included.
Hiked Great Sand Dunes With This Bag
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Love the easy water access that tucks in on the side and removable day-pack /water- sleeve. The bag itself can pack a large load no problems and I'm glad i got it hiking threw sand! I think the bags ability to cinch down while compartmentalizing all my gear with easy access as well as swell up and pack a ton of gear to haul on the suspension comfortably is really my favorite thing. Ive taken it car camping a few times as well and it works out great to have a bag in my tent organized and the day pack with me on a hike. I got the 75 so i could have the side flaps but the 65 with a newer light weight gear set up probably would have worked out well enough for weekends.
What is the waist size on the large? How big will it adjust to?
I recently purchased the Baltaro 65 and my sleeping bag will not fit into the compartment because it is too big. Does the Baltaro 75 have a considerably larger sleeping bag pocket?
Is the back length fit of the Baltoro 75 identical to the Baltoro 65? I've had the chance to try on the Baltoro 65, so I know what size fits me but I'm looking for the extra capacity in the 75. Thanks!
Yes, the torso lengths are the same across Gregory's line of backpacks:
XS: 14 - 16in
S: 16 - 18in
M: 18 - 20in
L: 20 - 22in
So definitely go with the same size that fit best in the Baltoro 65! Hope this helps.
Is this the 2015 model?
This is the 2015 model Gregory Baltoro.
Contact me with any questions about Gregory Backpacks:
I just bought the Baltoro 75 (2015) pack. I am wondering how exactly do I attached the rain fly so it is secure. I am a pretty intuitive guy and I don't see how to use the two little clips or two loops on the rain fly so that it stays put.
What is the difference in the Gregory Stout and the Balatoro that makes a $100 difference?
The biggest differences between the Baltoro and Stout is the support/suspension and shoulder straps. The Baltoro has all the bells and whistles of Gregory's most recent upgrades to allow a more personalized fit: Response AFS Suspension system, Auto-Cant harness and EVA foam Auto-Fit hip belt. Considering the sale price on the Baltoro right now I would highly recommend going for it over the Stout. Both are great packs.
Contact me with any questions about Gregory Packs:
Does the stated weight of the baltoro include the weight of the raincover and removable daypack or are those in addition to the stated weight?
That weight includes the rain cover and the brain which doubles as the removable day pack.
I would like to know that this Baltoro 75 including a rain cover ( 2015 model).
Please see the link above, I am looking for the same bag.
Could you please let me know?
It is the same pack, and comes with the Rain Cover.
