This pack is a indestructible machine; think terminator. Great pack for multi-week expeditions. It's extra weight is worth the security of mind knowing you don't have to perform a fix in the backcountry with two weeks left in the trip.
best so far

The price of this pack put me off for a really long time.... I mean, its just a pack right? After putting up with failures from other packs i finally had enough beers and enough credit to order this thing. I plan on sending a thank you note to Budweiser and PayPal. I loaded it up and I am serious, this thing is unbelievable. It truly is the best pack I have ever worn. The load is perfectly distributed. It took me 5 beers to order this pack and it is one of the only times when waking up with what I spent money on after having a few beers there were no regrets.

1) Break the list into 2 columns.
2) Print the list on standard white copy paper.
3) Affix your printed list to a wall or tree with scotch tape.

Opinions such as comfort, fit, design and function vary all over the board depending on individual preference, body type and needs.

The ONLY back pack I will ever buy!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have tried SEVERAL of the well known brands of back packs as well as the "cheapos". I currently own three Gregory back packs, the Denali, Whitney, and the G Pack.
To make a long story short, I will NEVER buy any other brand of back pack again. I have had the Denali since March 3, 2003 (This is accurate because I just now looked at the receipt to be sure.)
I have used it and used it and used it. I have carried loads as light as 20 pounds up to as much as 75 pounds in the Denali. I no longer use the G Pack even for day hikes because the Denali carries more comfortably at 30 pounds than the G pack at 20 pounds.
There isn't a better back brace on the market ( my back isn't that good) than a Gregory Denali Pro back pack cinched up tight.
HINT: Don't feed a bear with it and you will NEVER need to buy another back pack.

Best Pack For Truly Hard Use
As an Alaskan guide and outdoor enthusiast I have spent many months over the last 30 years with a heavy pack on my back. In my profession I'm definitely in the minority on the use of internal frame packs for extremely heavy bulky loads. I've walked thousands of mile, sometimes with up to 150+ pound load with this pack and can say with 100% certainty that no other pack I've worn can compare. I would recommend this pack to anyone who has a need for a tough pack that is used hard. I'm 6'5" and only about 215, so I had to get an extra large pack with a large waist belt. The combination works awesome. I have used this pack very hard since 2006 and will replace it with the same style when it wears out.
i will need an excuse to use my favorite pack.

I want this backpack. But I want to make an informed decision. Would this be good for women as well? Appreciate any advice. Pretty much sold on this based on the reviews ... Thanks !
There is a women's version called the Petit Dru Por 85. Check Gregorys web site for specs. Hope that helped alittle.
Loaded for Great Smokie Mountains Trip
I've owned this pack for over 10 years and will never even consider buying another pack. This is my third Gregory pack. I also have a Whitney and a g pack by Gregory. The Denali Pro will stand up to anything but a hungry bear. (Hint: Don't feed the bears from it and you'll never need another pack.)

What's the country of origin? For $550 why wouldn't a person go with a Kifaru or Mystery Ranch pack?
Guess you have not looked at this pack, McHale for $1400 is the only real comparison.
The Denali is made in the USofA!
Wondering if anyone knows it it is...
Wondering if anyone knows it it is also a good fit for women as well? The equivalent women's pack is 85 l compared to the Denali's 105 l and I could probably do with the extra space.
Women's packs are designed with differently shaped hip belts and shoulder straps. If you really can't live with 85L, you may want to call Gregory to see if the men's and women's belts and straps are interchangeable; I'm guessing they are. You may be able to get a men's pack with lady-parts.
Anyone have a solid comparison between the...
Anyone have a solid comparison between the Gregory Denali Pro and the Arc teryx Bora 95 (besides the obvious 10 L's and slight weight difference), especially on mountain expeditions like Denali, Aconcagua, etc.? I am looking for an expedition pack in the area of 95 L for Denali in May and would love to hear how these two packs compare (pack-ability, comfort, suspension, durability. . .anything pertinent). Thanks!
Owned a Bora 95 since 2001 and the denail pro since 2009. Both packs are very big and durable. The denail is better for carying skis and is taller and skinnier in shape. The bora is short and stout. Both are comfortable and cavernous. arcteryx has good customer service (replaced shoulder strap and received extra fabrics). I can fit my stuff in the bora slightly better probably because i've had it longer. The front entry on the gregory is nicer than the side entry on the bora.
In response to dirtnerd's answer to cli3097292 I can't compare the two packs since I have never used the Arc teryx Bora95, BUT I can testify to Gregory's customer service. I own three Gregory packs and lost the sternum strap from the g pack. I called Gregory fully expecting to pay for another sternum strap because it wasn't a Gregory malfunction. It was a ME malfunction. Gregory sent me another sternum strap FREE of charge and also FREE shipping. That is tough to beat.

North Cascades 1995
I have owned a Gregory Denali since 1995. I purchased this pack because I needed a dependable load hauler for a 21 day expedition thru-hiking the North Cascades National Park, with just one resupply at Ross Lake. I loaded this bad boy down with 80 pounds of gear and supplies for two 11 day sections, and abused this pack through some of the toughest back county you will ever find. It performed marvelously. 16 years later, I am now section hiking the AT with my wife (much lighter loads), still using my trusty Denali. I will never own any other brand of pack. There are no visible defects of any kind after all these years... the stitching is still as good as new. Gregory totally rocks. I have an old North Face Snow Leopard that my wife is using... we are going to replace it with the new Gregory Deva 70. I'm sure it will be the last pack my wife will ever buy.

Okay ... I found the place where the water bladder goes ... now where does the hose exit the pack? I've prodded every seam in the general neighborhood.
It's usually at a corner near the shoulder strap. Look for a small picture of a blue water drop.
That pack is not hydration compatible. It has a sleeve on the inside where you might think the bladder goes but that is just to protect your gear from the back panel.
I always used the mesh pocket on the bottom of the brain. If you put it in right (with the line hooked over the mesh and crossing to the opposite side), it never falls out no matter how rough you are with the thing...
I put my 70 oz Camel Back bladder inside the insulated sleeve that came with it and slip it into that sleeve on the inside that Jeff says is just to protect your gear from the back panel. He may be correct about that but it makes a perfect place for my Camel Bak. I simply exit the tube through the center hole left when the drift collar is cinched up, then out under the right side of the removable top pocket . I then run the tube through one of the smallest key ring type carabiners you buy at Wal Mart that I clip to the d ring on my right shoulder strap. It keeps the tube handy.
