Gregory Octal 45L Backpack - Women's


Octal 45L Backpack

Every ounce certainly counts, but that doesn't mean you have to opt for a hyper-minimalist stuff sack with zero structure. Instead, go with the much more efficient, and definitely more enjoyable, Gregory Women's Octal 45L Backpack. This weekend backpacking pack helps you maintain your desired base pack weight without giving up the space and load support you require on the trail. Constructed with a tough nylon fabric, the Octal provides stable, cool comfort courtesy of an AeroSpan suspension system and EVAP moisture-wicking backpanel that wards off soggy, aching backs, while the FocusForm shoulder harness and extra supportive hipbelt feature targeted comfort zones that let you cruise down the trail on Cloud 9. Then, a LeafSpring lumbar pad in the hipbelt saves your energy to prevent you from tapping out before your first day on the trail is over. The custom fitted rain cover stows in the top pocket for quick access when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and Gregory gave this pack numerous zippered pockets and gear loops to organize and carry your ice axes, trekking poles, helmet, water bottles, and sunglasses.

I've used it several times

This is an amazing pack. I love it for weekend backpacking trips (especially during the summer, when you don't need to carry so many layers). It's on the smaller size but it fits all the essentials for a night in the mountains (and saves the weight of bulkier packs). Its the perfect size for mountaineering in the Alps too. I've also used it as a carry on bag for planes haha. Overal Gregory makes a solid backpack. Highly recommended.
