Awesome Mtn Biking / Day Hiking Pack
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was given this Gregory Drift 10L backpack by Backcountry for testing, but this is my personal review. I have used the pack so far mostly for mountain biking and day hikes. It is a great size for longer rides where you might need to carry an extra layer, some snacks and any tools. The included 3L water reservoir is probably more than sufficient for most peopleâs rides or hikes and fits nicely in its own pocket against your back accessed by unzipping the mesh around the shoulder straps. The hose has a magnetic end that attaches nicely to the chest strap and has a convenient open/close feature. The adjustable waist belt has been useful for allowing it to fit both me (6ft) and my wife (5'8") comfortably. The waist belt is sturdy enough to actually be supportive, unlike some packs I have tested that just have thin straps, but it is also light enough that you donât notice it and can easily be tucked behind if not in use without being bulky. The waits belt has two small stash pockets, which have proved nice for quick access to a snack or chapstick/sunscreen without having to remove the pack. The pack includes a small, separate tool kit pouch which helps keep you smaller bike tools easily accessible and not loose in your pack. In the smaller of the two main pockets there is a zippered pocket that is padded and lined with soft material for stashing sunglasses or anything you want to keep a little more protected. Overall this has been a great pack that has become my new go-to for mountain biking and short hikes as it is extremely light while also having enough storage for anything necessary.

This is not a Dakine pack like the description says. Here's a real description: If you don't already know, Gregory makes great packs and they're based in SLC, which means they're close to some of the best trails in the US. With the Drift they really seem to have put serious thought into an MTB pack that fits well, breathes well, and gives you tons of bike-specific features I've never seen together in one pack. On top of the vented back panel that feels like it has air conditioning compared to any other MTB bag I've owned in the past decade, you get slick upgrades like:
- a removable tool bag
- a crash padded phone/sunglasses pocket
- a hydration bladder that stands up to dry itself out (magic!?!?)
- a hip belt that can adjust vertically in the back panel for ideal fit
- a magnetic hose clip (awesome)
- a glasses loop on the shoulder strap (this might be my favorite feature)
- probably some stuff I haven't figured out yet
In my opinion, Gregory has solved the issue of having to choose between a "cool" pack that has 10-year-old technology or a "bike" bag that's just a cross-branded trail running or hiking backpack. It's almost as though a real pack company actually sat down and asked how they could make the best mountain bike backpack possible, and then did it. Amazing! What an incredible time to be alive.
P.S. CC writers, I assume you get paid for your work, so stop recycling old descriptions. Or at least get the name right when you do.
Does this pack have a helmet carry system?
Thanks for asking James, this does not have a helmet carrying system on it.
