Unanswered Question

What is the capacity in litres?

Just what I wanted!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just got the z35 and haven't had a chance to give it a thorough test in the outdoors, but a few initial observations. I had ordered the z30 and liked it immensely, but wanted a bit more capacity in a long day or minimalist overnight pack. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to get the z30 for a 'grab & go' day pack; and I might just order another one.

The z35 is exceptionally well designed, well constructed, and has the 'no pack' feeling (that I also found with the z30) holding a stuffed pack test load. I like the variety, size, and location of the pockets. I like the effective drawstring that closes the main pocket tightly in addition to the hood panel that covers it (this compartment can also be accessed through a large zipper in the front; a nice feature). A nice big pocket on the inside and the outside of the top hood panel (why, oh why, wouldn't every pack have at least one pocket built into the hood?). I like the rain cover in its own little unnoticeable pocket (often an 'accessory' for an additional $20 or so with other packs) .

I'm not a big fan of the outer mesh pockets, which are found on many packs, because they seem to get torn and snagged up by sharp objects. I'll try to keep 'soft goods' (like maps and energy bars) in these and see if that makes a difference.

I could hardly be more impressed with the z35 (and the z30 in the smaller capacity), and the design, construction, and feel of the Gregory packs in general. I've also enjoyed the fine service from I recommend taking a close look at these Gregory z packs if quality of design, construction, comfort, and performance are more important than lowest price (and the price was very good, too!).

PS: be sure to use the Gregory fit guide. I see it is on this thread, down the line a few posts.

After some light use, the z35 is just what I wanted it to be. It's got an efficient, tight design for a 35L pack; some of the 35L's seem really big for extended day/single night packs. The compact, sleek design might limit some storage that would otherwise fit in a more boxy shape, but it's all very 'out of the way' in look and feel.

I do wish there was at least one or a couple more accessory loops for poles, etc (although, I might never use them; maybe 'less' is more out of the way of snagging branches, etc). There is one in the middle of the bottom of the pack. I'll use the compression straps for my poles. The red bungee in the middle of the back of the pack (top of the stuff pocket) is designed to be used with the bottom loop for poles, ice tool, etc. I've found that that bungee, looped over the buckle under the top hood, makes an effective 'closure' feature for the otherwise loose-topped stuff pocket. A bit more work to get into it; but I feel more secure with it that way (having lost a nice light jacket off the back of a pack some years ago).

Something I've noticed consistently is that this pack is super-easy to swing on and off. It doesn't get 'caught' on my shoulder or wrist anywhere (requiring a bit of Houdini-like wriggling) like some other packs have.

My Second Gregory Z Bag

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I own a Z55 which is great for overnights but this bag is awesome for long day hikes or lite overnights. Love the Jetstream as it kept me cool and as dry as possible while the weight sat on my hips. Great option for a zip in access into the bag rather than going through the top. I was going to go with the Z30 but the Z35 was priced competitively. Best of all, it comes with a Gregory raincover! Love all Gregory bags and this one tops it for hiking!

Great Review for Z series

Awesome Review Alexander. Also, couldn't help but notice how epic that beard is.

Thanks Josh, I wish I could claim beard rights on that one. It is definitely epic, however it sadly is not me. I'm glad you found the video useful.


Easy and helpful guide to measuring yourself for the right size backpack...

Z Ventilated Hiking

Ranging from larger daypacks for light and fast overnights to small packs for a quick out-and-back hike, the Z and Jade hiking packs deliver. The suspension can handle up to 35lbs with ease. A curved, hybrid Wire Wishbone frame stiffens against the framesheet as more weight is loaded, allowing the pack to properly and efficiently transfer the weight directly to the lumbar pad and your hips.

How long is this pack with the lid pocket...

How long is this pack with the lid pocket empty (the "minimum" length)? I've handled a Gregory z40 and when it was empty and the lid was tucked in the frame was about 21" long. This somehow looks longer than the z40 but I'm wondering if that's a photo illusion?

If you are talking a "rain cover" most do not supply that, typically they are between 25 to 30 bucks, and they are sized by Ltr

Responded on

According to the Gregory, it DOES have an integrated (and detachable) rain cover in a bottom pocket.
