An amazing pack to help you on the most epic journeys. The large capacity is easily accessed with some unique features like the full body zip opening, dual access pockets and sidewinder bottle holsters that make using this pack super easy. An amazing, practical pack that works well on long multi-day treks through to backpacking travel.
Supreme comfort and advanced performance make the Baltoro 65 ideal for weekend warriors and demanding users alike. This backpack’s secret sauce combines trail-dominating Response A3 suspension technology with 65 liters of capacity, giving it dynamic load balancing in tough terrain plus a trim design that feels perfectly sized for long winter weekends, warm-weather multi-stagers, and shorter backcountry excursions.
Gregory's Baltoro 65 Rucksack is one of the most interesting packs available. Although it's not in the lightweight class with many other modern packs the Baltoro has focused on innovative and practical features that make using it a joy. At the end of a long day when you are tired and sorting through kit is a chore the Baltoro comes into its own. With a large U-shaped double zip that opens up the main compartment so you can see and access all your gear. The sleeping bag compartment is also easy to access and great for organising kit.
The Baltoro is really versatile and you can adjust the setup, alter the fit to suit you and even add, remove or change some of the components to maximise comfort. As the pack is designed for heavy loads this level of adjustability to get it comfortable is vital and works really well. It is constructed with good, durable materials and reinforced where you get the most abrasion but after long trips a quick clean has it looking as good as new. The best thing about the Baltoro is the number of unique features that make it enjoyable to use such as the double access pockets to the front and lid pockets, the sidewinder bottle holder that packs away when not in use, the pole storage options, attachment points on the top to carry solar panels and the handy little sidekick day sack that can double as the hydration pocket.
