Rob de Lucawrote a review of Gregory Targhee 32L Backpack on February 27, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Other reviews cover the Targhee's features; I'm going to talk about how this pack actually skis. I've owned and used any number of packs from Dakine, BD, Osprey, etc., and for the most part, they ski like crap, mainly because they rely on flexible plastic frame sheets for support. The Targhee has a perimeter wire frame that anchors to a real hipbelt. That means the load transfers properly when you're in your ski stance, and you can ski more naturally. It also makes hiking with skis strapped on a lot easier, because the load gets channeled to your hips instead of pulling back on your shoulders. All in all, this 32L pack skis and hikes much better, even fully loaded, than much smaller packs. That's on top of the features and sizing that make it super-functional, as other reviews mention. If you don't need or want or can't afford an airbag, this is the pack to get.
