Gregory named favorite packs by Backpacker readers
Gregory Packs was the top backpack manufacturer named by Backpacker Magazine subscribers in four out of five categories of a recent survey titled “What we know about Backpacker Subscribers’ Backpacks.”
Gregory was the top brand in four categories: ‘most comfort,’ ‘best performance,’ ‘most advanced technology’ and ‘leading brands of backpacks.’
In the last three years, the 30-year-old company won awards for its pack designs from such diverse media outlets as Backpacker Magazine, Popular Science, National Geographic Adventure, Consumers Digest and Alpinist Magazine. Responsible for many industry firsts in backpacking fit and design, the Gregory research and design team, including company founder Wayne Gregory, continues does make a pretty cool bag. The company in recent years has expanded into lightweight packs, sport-specific packs.
Personally, I'm an Osprey guy, though I do think Gregory makes a nice, and well priced pack. It's also starting to do some really light packs, which are perfect for Rocky Mountain weekends.
