Mellow bowls to steep chutes.
Equipped with Gregory's Fusion Flex suspension for lightweight efficiency and uphill-specific support, the Gregory Targhee 32 Backpack excels on technical ski tours and splitboard missions in search of untracked powder. The 7075-T6 aluminum stay transfers heavy loads when you're skinning uphill, covered by a thermo-formed back panel for soft-wearing comfort. Snow-shedding materials prevent it from soaking up excess moisture during inclement winter conditions.
This supportive pack strikes an optimal balance between ample storage and uphill efficiency, carrying everything you need for demanding tours without weighing you down with unnecessary bulk or unneeded features. Keeping you on top of rapidly changing snow conditions and emergency rescue scenarios, the dedicated snow safety pocket houses your probe and collapsible shovel. The hydration-compatible design (reservoir not included) keeps you drinking on-the-move, with an insulated sleeve that prevents your water from freezing in frigid temps.
Stowable ski and snowboard carry straps allow you to bootpack beyond the resort's boundaries and scale summits too steep to skin up. Stowable ice axe straps come in handy for riding through firm spring cycles and technical ski mountaineering missions. Glove-friendly hardware allows you to open and close the pack's compartments without removing your gloves and freezing your fingers off. There's also a stowable mesh helmet holder for staying cool on the way up the mountain.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I got this for a friend to use as a touring day pack. He loves the design and all the handy features, he especially likes the helmet strap on the outside. It can be a pain to try and fit your helmet in your bag, not a problem with this pack! The helmet strap design on the outside allows you to securely fit your helmet outside your pack. The 32 liters is a good size for day long missions. It's not the biggest pack in the game but is great for a few layers, avi equipment, and snacks. he got a size small and is about 5'7'
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The designers of this bag were really thoughtful. The hip pocket is big enough for several snacks. The top pocket for goggles is big enough for an extra sweater, your phone, and your goggles, but still has a separate smaller zip pouch so you don't lose your keys. The insulated camel back has worked well even in low temps. The big rear compartment has plenty of room for a shell and extra puffy. I took it on a 6-day touring trip to BC and loved it every minute. Plus, the color is cute.
Stoked to use it this season.
I just got this pack last week and I am already so impressed with it. I have not had the opportunity to use it out in the backcountry yet, but I definitely will be leaving some comments after I do (currently praying for snow)!! I have put all of my gear in it and it is the perfect size. The shoulder straps have very nice pads on them so it is very comfy when it is on my back. The hip belt is also one of the more comfy ones I have felt, it has very nice padding and is very well balanced. The pack gives you opportunity to carry your skis in a diagonal or an A-frame position. A couple other sweet features that this pack offers is a helmet carry net that can be easily stowed away, back panel zip option for when you have your skis in an A-frame position, and a good sized goggle pocket. I am 6'5" and the Large size pack fits me very well. Super excited to use this pack this coming season. If you have any more questions on this pack or any others you see on the site, you can contact me directly and I would be happy to help you out.
I am a 5'11 female. Which size would be good for me?
