Denali 75L Backpack
Being the little brother of the Denali 100, the Gregory Denali 75 Backpack is designed for overnight alpine climbs and minimalist expeditions. The pack maintains the same technical prowess of the Denali 100, but is a smaller and more nimble option that will keep weight to a minimum and provide sleek and streamlined functionality whether you're getting deep into the backcountry or high into the alpine. In order to save weight, Gregory designed the Denali with a lighter 210D nylon fabric and 420D high-density reinforcements where they are needed most. A puncture-resistant internally laminated front panel protects against ice axes, crampons, and ski edges, while the 630D high-density nylon base saves the bottom of the pack from rock and ice.
For a comfortable carry, Gregory fitted the pack with its top-of-the-line Fusion Flex Pro suspension. The system is composed of two 7075 aluminum frame stays that can be removed to lighten your load and a sewn-in framesheet for additional support. A tubular cross stay prevents the bag from collapsing and bunching when weighed down with a heavy load, and the high-density EVA foam padding at the shoulders, back, and hip pads ensure a comfortable fit. There's a removable bivy pad concealed in the back panel, and the hip belt can be also removed when you're really trying to go fast and light in the high alpine.
The classic top-loading design lets you stuff all your gear securely down inside, but Gregory also hooked the Denali up with a full-length side slash zip access point for easy access to layers that have been stashed closer to the bottom. A zippered pocket underneath the removable lid is perfect for small items, stowaway side pocket stow water bottles, and waist belt gear loops are perfect for all your rock- and ice-climbing gear. There's an internal hydration reservoir with a tube port to keep you hydrated and a quick-access zippered pocket at the side that's designed to keep your topo map close at hand. Since the Denali is designed for alpine expeditions, you'll want to keep your ice axes handy with the back carry system.
