The Gregory G Pack is the result of Gregory's experience making comfortable packs applied to lighter fabrics and materials. The hollow core single aluminum stay and well fitting harness combine to create a very comfortable pack suspension without being overly stiff. Weights at or around 30 pounds (Gregory's suggested weight) carried very comfortably in the G Pack. However, Gregory's G fabric (1.3 oz/yd2 silnylon) is rather thin and will not handle a lot of abuse. We also found the lack of accessible pockets, limited exterior attachment options, and the omission of hydration compatibility disappointing. This comprehensive review highlights the following features of the Gregory G Pack Backpack: specifications, features (frame and suspension analysis, usability features, and load volume flexibility), field performance (pack load carrying capacity, durability), value, and recommendations for improvement.
