About the Product
Your week-long epic just got better thanks to the Baltoro 75. Response A3 suspension automatically adapts to your body and the terrain, making this spacious pack feel deceptively light and agile even when fully loaded.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Gregory Baltoro 75 Liter Men's Multi Day Hiking Backpack
  • The back panel is fantastic and makes a wonderful platform for the rest of the weight. This is my go-to pack for winter or long hikes...hauls big loads with grace.
  • The updated materials feel lighter and slightly stronger than on the previous model, the ventilated hip belt is very comfortable and conforms well to my body.
  • Even when using this pack for smaller trips it compressed well so it wasn't cumbersome with a smaller load. Whether is be a day of climbing, or even just a quick overnight trip.
  • This pack fits my body like a glove, supports the lumbar, and places the load right where it needs to be, my legs. Very comfortable!
  • Amazing pack. The Gregory Baltoro is the only pack that fits me right. It is the only pack that I found comfortable enough to take it on a week long backpacking trip.
  • I have an slim athletic body, this Backpack was very unconfortable for me. This backpack is heavy and harness for the hips are so big for me.
Osprey Aether AG 70 Men's Backpacking Backpack
  • Great recommendation! It is super comfortable and leaves no added pressure on my lower back. I like the features a little bit better on this pack as well.
  • It is comfortable, has pleanty of room, exterior pockets and straps for everything I brought and needed.
  • Tall pack with plenty of straps and pockets. Very comfortable, fits like a glove. I love all the adjustable features.
  • This bag does a very good job of keeping the weight centered to the body and with the spring loaded waist belt it really make the bag feel lighter!
  • This pack is great with one flaw, the pockets on the hip belt can be opened with one hand but closing them with one hand is a different story.

What customers say about "Features"
Gregory Baltoro 75 Liter Men's Multi Day Hiking Backpack
  • The back panel is more ventilated than on the previous model, preventing my back from getting anywhere near as sweaty. The hip belt pockets are big enough and easy to reach.
  • Overall, the suspension on this pack does a great job of transferring most of the weight to my hips and is on of my favorite features on this backpack.
  • The pack as a whole is well thought out, and small features like the integrated rainfly pouch, and sunglasses stay are appreciated.
  • Lots of nice pockets and utility gear loops etc. Pack is fairly comfortable and distributes the load around the hip nicely. It feels sturdy, although the fabric doesn't seem that durable.
  • Phone pocket is too small for any modern phone (I have a Nexus 5X), forcing you to use a not-easily-accessible pocket.
Osprey Aether AG 70 Men's Backpacking Backpack
  • The pockets on the hip belt are the best out there. I like all the other features like the mesh front and side pockets although wish they were a little more bigger or more stretchy.
  • The Aether AG 70 was the perfect bag for me. I can adjust the harness height perfectly for my long torso, and the hip belt support on this thing is down right luxurious.
  • The osprey is all around the best pack I’ve had. The detachable day pack is a great extra it comes in very very helpful. The pack has all the bells and whistles I could ask for or need even!
  • It really wraps around your back when you apply the load-lifters. All in all, a very comfortable pack to carry.
  • Top bag is too small; sleeve inside main bag is pointless the way it is placed on the arch of the back.
