A large, serious pack for epic journeys. The 75L capacity is easy to access with a lot of 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.
Your week-long epic just got more epic thanks to the balanced, roomy Baltoro 75. Response A3 Suspension automatically adapts to your body and the terrain, making this spacious pack feel deceptively agile even when fully loaded. Thoughtful feature placement like external gear pockets, a divided lid, a sleeping bag compartment, and built-in organization keep your life simple on the trail and in camp.
Gregory's Baltoro 75 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.
