Product Description

Product Description

Its predecessor won countless awards for being the most comfortable, high performance pack. So whymess with a good thing? To make it even better of course. The Baltoro 75 has improved functionality within the feature set, increased pack volume and an updated suspension that carries better and more comfortably than ever before. We didn't think we could improve on perfection, but we dare you to tell us this isn't the best pack you've ever worn.

Designed for the backcountry adventurer seeking multiple pockets and zip-thru access points, the Gregory Baltoro 75 satiates with 75 liters of highly organized backpack. The pack is outfitted with Gregory's Response AFS suspension system, an independent rotating waist-belt system that automatically registers and adjusts to your hip angle. This pivoting belt mirrors your body's movements and evenly distributes the weight, helping the pack support larger loads without restricting your movement or stressing your hips and shoulders. Gregory also added a thermo-molded EVA back panel with a grippy lumbar pad. The back panel and lumbar pad help the pack stay properly positioned throughout your hike for a better overall experience. Comfort is essential on long hikes, and the Baltoro 75 delivers.

The Baltoro 75 offers three ways to access your gear: through the top, the front, and the bottom. The multiple access points let you grab your shoes from the bottom of the pack without rustling through the rest of your gear. The pack also sports several smaller pockets, including a zippered front pocket, twin side pockets, dual hip-belt pockets, and a hideaway water bottle pocket with a bungee. And that doesn't include the removable top lid pocket, which converts into a fanny pack or sling bag while keeping your compass, maps, and other small essentials close at hand. The pack even boasts a stash pocket on the underside of the lid for personal items.

And hydration is always a must while on the trail, which is why the Baltoro 75 comes with a reservoir sleeve and dual drink-tube exit ports (reservoir sold separately). All Gregory packs carry a lifetime warranty.

The Baltoro 75 includes a rotating waist-belt system that mirrors your body's movements.

About Gregory Mountain Products
Wayne Gregory designed his first backpack at age 14 as part of a Boy Scout project. Shortly afterward, he met Andy Drollinger, the founder of San Diego California Adventure 16. Andy was so impressed with Wayne's design that he invited the Boy Scout to visit the Adventure 16 factory, where he began tinkering with a variety of backpack ideas. Wayne soon became the young company's second employee. Wayne opened his first company, Sunbird, in 1970, but dissolved it a few years later after expressing frustration with the limitations of external frame designs. He founded Gregory Mountain Products in 1977, eventually pioneering many firsts, including being the first to build backpacks in different frame, harness, and waist belt sizes; the first (and still only) pack manufacturer to develop a waist belt system that adjusts to fit different hip angles; and developing the center-locking bar tack, a stitch that ends and locks off on the center of a seam instead of the side for increased strength at major stress points. Gregory is located in Sacramento, California.

Just got back from a 2 week backpacking trip in the Yosemite backcountry. All I can say about this pack is that it met all my expectations and then some. Very comfortable pack and secure compartments. Everything was easy to access and held up to all kinds of scenarios. The first night was extremely stormy and I kept the pack in my rain fly. It got very muddy and I was very upset that my new pack was all dirty after one night. The weird thing is that after it dried the mud just repelled off and it still looks brand new. Went through a couple waterfalls and narrow rocky places and still was rugged and looks new. The clips are strong and the straps kept everything in place so there was no slippage or swaying. I'm a tall and thin guy (6'2") and it fit perfectly. Made my trip a very relaxing one because it would have been a nightmare with any of the cheaper packs. Glad I purchased it!

The pack is comfortable and the shoulder straps and hip belt are padded perfectly. Although, for the money spent buying this bag, still missing some features. The Gregory pack has no good organizational pockets. The pockets are just throw stuff in and that's it. Would have been nice to have had built in mesh holders, so it was good for separating items into specific groups of like items (ie. medications, headlamp and batteries). The Gregory pack has no place to attach your water bladder hose so it just flops around by the shoulder strap. (easily corrected with caribiners) There is also no hook or strap to secure the bladder in the pocket (inside the pack). tied a length of nylon rope between the upper part of the frame so I could clip the bladder to it, to keep it from collapsing in the pocket as water was drank.

Key Features!

1) Pivoting hip belt. Unlike most packs where the hip belt is locked in an upsidedown "T" shape, this one allows for mobility. I carried this pack with about 40lbs (including pack weight) on a 4-day hike that included a fair amount of scrambling, including a long 5.2 climb. The additional flexibility allowed by the pivoting hip belt was a life saver.

2) "Sticky" material at the based of the pack. All previous packs I've owned caused my shirts to ride up over time such that I need to pull the shirt down every 15 mins or so to avoid having the pack on bare skin. The material at the base of this pack prevents that. Small detail, big comfort.

3) Fully adjustable. There are so many different ways to load and secure this pack. This is very handy when you need it as a day pack in the middle of a long trip to investigate an offshoot to your main trail.

4) Hip belt is thick and is molded into a curve.

Color Name: Cinder Cone RedSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
After reading the reviews and knowing the reputation that Gregory has, I decided on the Baltoro 75 backpack. I wanted comfort first, and the fit and padding on this bag makes this the Cadillac of packs. It may not be the best ventilated bag, but that's my only gripe. The accessibility is second to none, and this was a key factor in a pack for me. The pockets are nice for organizing your gear, and the removable top let's me throw my water bladder, snacks, headlamp and maybe a fleece while leaving my camelbak at home shaving crucial pounds off my overall weight. The pull out water bottle pocket fits my bear spray in a reachable and secure location. After 6 miles of strenuous hiking, I didn't have one bit of discomfort, and during the next 6 miles, I found the sweet spot in the many adjustments and was hooked. Although I had an Osprey 70, and a REI XT-85, this was the bag I plan on keeping till the thing falls apart. Even though it weighs more than most, I feel like you can add 10lbs or more and it still feels lighter than my other packs. Don't base judgement on the bag weight is all I'm saying. I have around 50lbs in mine for a week long trip, and could easily take on more. Gregory has a video on their web site that will help you learn how to adjust the pack for optimal fit. I ended up buying mine at rei after a failed attempt on amazon. Rei will Exchange your purchases no matter what the reason even years later, so its worth the few bucks more in the long run.

This pack is very durable and holds a considerable amount of gear, particularly for backpacking and hiking for days or even a few weeks. I like the spacious and numerous pockets as well as the comfortable waistbelt support. I have to knock one star off for having too many straps that need to be carefully tucked away in order to avoid snagging vegetation while hiking in the woods or getting caught on a conveyor belt at the airport.

Overall I would recommend this as a good amateur pack for light to medium hiking experiences, suitable for most people, and capable of holding a generous amount of gear. The 75 is for a larger person, I am 6'4". I would recommend a smaller size for women and children.

I bought this pack two years ago to replace my old 15 year old Gregory pack. I use it primarily for 5-7 day backcountry hikes. The pack holds a full load really well. The bottom compartment barely fits a standard bear canister and could be a little bit larger, but this is a minor issue. The main compartment is adequate. I love the side compartments, which hold a water filtration system, saw, and other items. There are plenty of hooks and loops to hold accessories on the pack. Finally, the center outside compartment is perfect for the things that one would need during a hike like snacks, kitchen, etc. The pack does squeak from time to time if the straps are not positioned correctly inside the frame. Again, this is a minor issue that is easily corrected. The construction is beefy and the zippers work well after two years of abuse.
