This 55-liter pack is ideal for multi-day excursions, easily accommodating your outerwear, clothes, sleeping bag, and tent. Eliminating pressure points and excess sweating, the Aerolon suspension uses mesh-covered, die-cut foam in conjunction with a lightweight aluminum frame to support heavy loads.

Gregory's Multi-Straps externally tether your sleeping bag, rolled-up tent, or bulky items the pack's bottom. Another innovative feature is the removable Sidekick Daypack, which is great for shorter hikes and supply shuttles into town, should you embark on a longer thru-hike.

Comfy and Lightweight

I use a backpack for at least 16 days every month, so something that is comfortable and easy to use is important. As a hardcore enthusiast of other backpack brands I was curious (and maybe skeptical) to see how I’d like the Maven 55. Short to say I’m sold and have been using it on trail ever since. It’s comfy, feels light, and gives you more headspace to enjoy being out on trail, which is something we can all hopefully appreciate in such a hectic year. prod Things I like- True to size and adjustable! Really impressed with the ease one can adjust to different body types. A built in rainfly makes for one less thing to pack. Hip belt padding is a lifesaver. Downside- The magnetic clip for the hydro bladder is finicky and the mouthpiece falls off. Only sized for S/M XS/S, getting some larger model packs would make backpacking more accessible for all! No built in daypack, something I personally prefer and the older model used to have. Overall YES yes yes! Will be and am currently using this pack again and again!

Cravin' for a Maven? Comfy yet light.

I am a 5'8", fast moving hiker and appreciate a combination of lightweight and comfort in my packs. As with all Gregory packs (and the Maven is no exception), I like the ease of adjustability. Not sure exactly how they do it, but the hip, lower and upper shoulder strap adjustments are very ergonomic and don't require unnecessary fiddling. And speaking of adjusting, the hip belt and the back panel (torso length) are both adjustable by Velcro to allow you to narrow in on what feels best over time and with different weights. The lumber support, the hip pads, and ventilation of the padding were also very nice and increased comfort in the later hours of the hike. I felt like the suspension system/frame worked well for me - the load was nicely transferred to my hips and lower back while still feeling secure to my upper back and shoulders. A few notes on functionality. The brain is 'free floating'. This is nice in that you can remove it completely if you want to drop a few ounces, but I find it rather fiddlesome since it can move all over the place. The brain has two pockets for organization of lightweight/small objects (the raincover in comes with has its own special pocket on the bottom). The main compartment can be accessed by the traditional top (closed by a drawstring and clip), a full length side zipper, and a bottom zipper flap (so kudos on the ultimate accessibility). The top pullstring can be easily opened with one hand. There is only one large inside elastic pocket for the hydration bladder, with the characteristic Gregory hook and a small webbing loop for hanging. The interior has a nylon shelf to divide the sleeping bag from the rest of the compartment, which can be easily removed. The outside of the pack has three elastic pockets, two on the sides and one on the back, and two zipper pockets on the belt useful for snacks, phone, etc. There is also a sunglass holder on the shoulder strap. There's also an elastic, adjustable loop and a lower adjustable strap on the back right for carrying trekking poles. All these awesome little features come with the price that there are a lot of straps and clips, making the choices for adjustment a little complex. I don't feel this takes away from the function of the pack, it’s just a preference for some people to be aware of when buying. Overall, I would recommend this pack for an overnight or multiday hike.

Great bag

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

This is a nice lightweight pack. The straps around the waist hug comfortably around the hips. The day pack that comes with it should only have light weight items in it. The fabric is very thin.

Loved the bag

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Incredible adjustability to find the perfect fit. Overall the pack is really comfortable and light but I love the hip belts and the mesh backing to keep your back from sweating profusely. Bonus: the waterproof hip belts pocket that is big enough for your smart phone when you need easy access to snap some photos on your way!
