High-performance pack for on-the-go hikers.
A low and narrow profile makes the Gregory Miwok 44 Backpack perfect for fast-moving travel whether you're thru-hiking or overnight backpacking. BioSync Suspension connects the shoulder straps to the waist belt with a flexible Wishbone wire frame to pull the pack closer to your back, minimize bouncing, move with you while you're hiking, and balance your load's weight evenly on your shoulders and hips. The shoulder straps and waist belt feature moisture-wicking fabric to keep you comfortably dry in warmer weather.
This top-loader also has a front zipper to quickly access your main compartment when you need an extra layer. The Miwok 44 also features and integrated rain cover and a hydration sleeve with external access. For storage, you get two zippered pockets at the fixed lid, a stretch pocket at the front for stuffing a layer back in the pack quickly, and dual side and waist-belt pockets. Front daisy chains let you attach gear with a carabiner, hideaway loops let you attach ice axes or trekking poles when you aren't using them, and four bottom lash points and side compression straps make sure your load is as compact and comfortable as can be.

Sorry Wayne... :-(
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
So I'm a total Gregory Fan Boy... In my world there were two pack manufacturers; Gregory and Dana Designs... and while that dates me I will still put any pack from Dana's Arcflex line or Gregory's Summit or Adventure Series lines up againts any pack suspension made today... Granted they don't make them like they used to and Mystery Ranch really isn't Dana butttt... as far as this pack goes I feel it misses the mark. For a 44L pack the suspension just did not work for me. I have some smaller packs from Gregory with light suspensions and they work... but this one felt significantly under built for the size of the pack (and I was only putting 15-25lbs in it.
I was thinking about getting this with the north face medium duffel, to travel south america with both for 5 months. Do you think that this pack is small enough to pack in the duffel? I figured I wouldn't always want a pack on but I would like a bag of this size for smaller day trips etc. (Such as machu pichu)
