From bagging peaks to closing deals.
The Miwok 24 Backpack is one of the cleanest packs around, and even though Gregory designed it for rugged hiking, peak bagging, and mountain biking, it won't be out of sorts if you take it into town for a different kind of business. Designed to mimic the way flexible tendons and solid bones work in your body, Gregory's BioSync ATS suspension system reacts to your every move with flexible connectors that join the shoulder straps to the waist belt and back frame, giving the Miwok unprecedented movement and flexibility. Padded mesh makes the shoulder straps, waist belt, and back panel highly breathable, too, so you don't get excessively sweaty when you're bike commuting or boulder hopping.
Gregory equipped the Miwok with a hydration sleeve for your own reservoir and a tube clip at the shoulder strap to stop the hose from flopping around. The expandable front pocket is perfect for extra layers or a helmet, and a front clip makes it easy to attach a bike light when you're biking home from work or the trailhead. Side pockets hold water bottles, a top stash keeps your keys safe, and two zippered compartments on the hip belt keep a compass or small snack handy, because the only thing worse than getting lost is getting lost while you're hungry.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Replacing my much-loved Camelbak pack that saw me through many a National Park and overseas was difficult, but this pack turned out to be a good purchase. I like the fit, the zip pockets on the waist belt, the stash zip pocket on top, the awesome expandable outside "pouch" and the fact that it was compatible with my water reservoir. I would give it 5 stars, but the loop type holder for the water reservoir is too long and so the water bag keeps falling off and sliding down. I managed to rig it up so it stopped doing that, but feel that a shorter loop would be better.
