A tough, streamlined, and versatile weekend-or-longer pack.
When you wear the Gregory Stout 65 Backpack, you know what you're getting: a tough, straightforward, no-nonsense pack for lightweight overnights or weekend hostel trips. The Stout has a TrailFlex wishbone suspension that uses a flexible backpanel and spring steel internal frame to carry loads of up to 45 pounds without discomfort and has a TrailFit hip belt that is fully adjustable, so your hips, shoulders, and back can share the load.
The Stout carries like a champ, but it also has a series of smartly designed features that make trail life a little smoother, like a stow-away rain cover and removable lid that keep your gear dry and lighten your load, respectively. Top and bottom access make it easy to get at gear in different parts of your pack, and front, side, and hip belt pockets keep snacks, layers, maps, and phones accessible. If you're going for the summit, pull out the detachable SideKick daypack to go extra-light (the SideKick doubles as a hanging reservoir sleeve when it's inside the Stout). Gregory also built in loops to carry trekking poles and ice axes, compression straps for extra gear or sleeping pads, and a series of daisy chain loops that are designed to carry portable solar panels, but work as lash points for whatever other (non)essential gear you decide to bring.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Carried this pack with me and friends to Yosemite. Hiked Yosemite Falls with it. Was able to pack about 4 days worth of food and gear in it just fine. The shoulder straps appear a bit odd, but they are still comfortable. Tie all your straps down just right and the weight will be distributed just like it should be. Only sore part on me is my legs and that's due to carrying a good amount of weight up and down all those switchbacks.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Went and got sized before ordering so size was right. Color was right, I got the blue. Excited to start using. :)
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I gave this as an early wedding gift to my bestfriend's fiance and here's what he had to share!
This is a great pack, I recommend it to anyone who is doing an overnight or multiple day backpacking trip. This pack is comfortable, lightweight, has plenty of pockets and gear straps, enough room to pack for almost a week, and comes with an extra bag/hydration bag that can be removed and used separately. This was my first pack from Gregory and my expectations were definitely met.
What is the torso length range for the small?
Hey Jennifer - The torso length range for a Small is 16 - 18in (40 - 44cm). Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions. - Kyle L. - Expert Gearhead
I have a great pack that I can even put my bed mat in. I want this pack to take to Japan, but I need to carry a water bottle.
Water bladders are for day hikers. To use them on larger hikes you have to half empty your pack to get a refill back in. Does this pack have pockets for water bottles?
What size hydration bladder will fit into the Stout 65?
The Stout comes with a separate sleeve for the hydration pack, which you can remove and wear as a small daypack.
I have a 3L Camelbak bladder and it fits easily when the sleeve is in the pack, though it does take away space from the rest of the interior. When removed from the pack, the sleeve had enough space to stuff in a small shell along with the 3L bladder.
