Why We Like The Paragon 48L Backpack

With the miles extending beyond the horizon, camp only a distant thought, and nothing but the call of simple, altruistic beauty ahead, the Gregory Paragon 48L Backpack is our go-to carry all. Lightweight and breathable, this pack doesn’t weigh us down on the many days ahead, and the adjustable torso length dials in the ideal fit. If the day plays rain, the fitted rain cover keeps all our gear dry as day-old bread.

Gregory Paragon

Light weight backpack that's very comfortable and a great choice for beginners to advanced hikers looking for a smaller pack.

Comfortable and capable

The gregory paragon 48 is an amazing choice for a hiking backpack, especially with the breathable mesh and metal rods in the fram to redistribute the weight to your hips instead of your back. Its very comfortable and a good choice for any kind of outdoorsman wether its a beginner or an expert since the bag isnt too complicated to figure out. If i had to nit pick and change one thing id add more pouches and pockets.

Everything inexpected.

I have used this bag multiple times was everything i expected and great features. Large side stretch pockets and large stretch back pocket. Right side pocket has convenient hole to access water bottles in and out without having to remove pack. Nice waterproof rain cover which works great has a hook and strap to keep from coming off. Great bag comfortable and light.

Great backpack

Was able to fit enough supplies for an overnight backpacking trip including tent, sleeping bag, extra food, and camera equipment. Everything feels fairly durable. Only complaints are that I can't reach waterbottles in the side pockets while the pack is on and waist pockets aren't big enough to hold my phone. Overall pleased with this backpack and looking forward to taking it out again in the future.

Great lightweight backpack

I used this for a couple weekend backpacking trips. Great backpack with lots of organization options. Could have more supportive/comfortable straps, but overall amazing pack.

Lightweight, versatile & user friendly

This bag feels like it was built in order to be used intuitively. Nothing too fancy. Only cons I have for this bag are the male/female clips size concerns me as they are small and seem fragile. Secondly, a hole in the top of the bag for a bladder hose to go through that isn't the main compartment opening.

Great 5 day pack

I recently purchased this pack to go on a 5 day 88 mile hike and it was perfect. Super comfortable and breathable on my back. The hip belt adjusted very well to take the majority of the weight.( My pack weight was 28 pounds with full food for five days and 2L of water) I encountered some rain as well but, this pack stood strong with its included rain cover. I also found myself using the empty backpack as an additional pillow which was very comfortable. It is not the lightest backpack on the market but it sure is comfortable and with its 48L capacity it is the perfect size for a 5 day adventure.I look forward to many more miles with this pack and I strongly recommend this pack to anyone! Great job Gregory!

Just what I was looking for...

Great pack. I love how it fits and carries weight well. I like the streamlined size of the 48L pack. Easily do a 3-4 day backpacking trip while packing some luxury items.

Great Backpack!

Took this pack with the family on several day hikes and had plenty of room to pack rain jackets and extra clothes for my wife and 3 kids as well as a picnic lunch, first aid kit, sunscreen, bug spray, etc. Included rain cover worked well to keep things dry. Side access zipper is a great feature that came in handy numerous times. The pack is comfortable to carry for extended periods of hiking, too.
