Product Description

Amazon.com

Designed for the backcountry adventurer seeking multiple pockets and zip-thru access points, the Gregory Baltoro 65 satiates with 65 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 65 delivers.

The Baltoro 65 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 65 comes with a reservoir sleeve and dual drink-tube exit ports (reservoir sold separately). All Gregory packs carry a lifetime warranty.



The Baltoro 65 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.

Solid pack and pretty comfortable.

The padding on the hip and shoulder straps is very very generous and comfortable.

It's heavy.

Just so you know.

Before you overpack this beast and head for the hills, know it already weighs more than five pounds, dry and empty. But it doesn't feel so bad when you actually strap it on and it's even better when you're carrying a decent load. The shoulder and waist straps all pivot when you are moving, which at first feels a little weird, but it works surprisingly well. There's no mesh back padding like the Ospreys or the mid sized Mountain Hardwear packs, but I can't complain thus far about breathability. The padding on the hip and shoulder straps is very very generous and comfortable. For the lumbar area, Gregory has slapped on this sticky surface TPU or the like to keep slippage to a minimum. It's a nice touch.

I don't know how many pockets are on the Baltoro, but there's a lot. You will find a hydration pack hanger and sleeve with a punch out for the drink tube. The lid comes off and has it's own buckle/strap for a shoulder or hip pack. You will also find the expected mesh waist zip pockets and a canted mesh stash for the Nalgene. The bottom compartment could take a compressed sleeping bag - think a down bag as I doubt a decent temp synthetic will get in there. There's strategically placed compression straps and clips for quite a few ancillaries. Gregory has some lightly coated internals of the ripstop for some weather resistance, but I'd up for the rain cover you can buy separately if you're expecting to get wet.

If anything, when you're getting up this big, you may as well just go for the 75. I'm actually in slight regret I didn't do that myself, but I have no plans to get rid of this thing.

I got this last minute to take to Philmont for 12 days on the trail. Mine is a size large, which for my 6'1" 220 lb frame was perfect. The back support (AFS) and waistbelt were perfect for climbing up and down the steep, rocky trails. The pack rode excellent! My back wasn't sore once, even while carrying an extra 4 gallons of water up Mt. Phillips. Follow Gregory's fitting guide and you should have a great fitting pack. Water bottle holders and waistbelt pockets are well thought out and very simple to reach. (Waistbelt pockets are great for headbands, buffs, or cloth for glasses.) Another cool feature is the water bladder holder and tube outlet. This helps keep your heavier items closer to your back, too. The side pockets are roomy, but hard to reach without taking off the pack. Lots of extra tie off loops to support gear externally too. Overall, a solid pack with room to spare.

Most comfortable pack I have ever owned. Plenty of space for 65 liters and lost of adjustments. Only gripe; the hydration compartment inside the pack should have been designed to go between the pack and the back panel, not IN the pack - Its s little tricky. Otherwise this pack is awesome.

After several weeks and too many hours researching packs, I decided on this one because of the outstanding support and comfort. It isn't a lightweight pack, but if you pack light, the extra couple pounds make the comfort completely worth it. I took it up to King's Peak in August with 35 lbs or more and it was great. Everything adjusts extremely well. Access to internals is superb. Bright red color is fun, and the tacky lower back panel is surprisingly comfortable in bearing the load.

We left our packs behind for the summit and were caught in a thunderstorm, and it rained for several hours before I got back to my pack. My spare clothes and everything inside was dry! Pleasant surprise for having no rain cover.

Bear in mind the pack is ~5lbs and on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for!

Bottom line: build quality is great, super comfy, tons of room, anticipate using for 20+ years.

As a lite traveler and inexperienced trekker, I think the large size (65L) just gives an excuse to fill up with extra stuff I wouldn't otherwise be carrying in a 55 or 60 pack instead. With this minimalist mindset, I at first thought the Baltoro had too many pockets and straps and whatnot for my liking. However, after 2 months of travel through Nepal including a week-long trek, all the pockets were used, and I wouldn't have preferred any other backpack. The straps are as sturdy as I've seen, the rotating hip and shoulder straps are worth their weight. I was torn between the Baltoro 65 and the Savant 58. I preferred the Savant carrying up to 30 lbs., and the Baltoro over 30 lbs. My dealbraker was the unquestionably stronger straps and lumbar support of the Baltoro, and I couldn't be happier with this decision.

The bad: Small, ok, tiny hip belt pockets. Will fit my multi tool just barely. Has trouble with even a cliff bar, but will fit certain others. Forget about putting your smart phone in these pockets. So, small items and wrappers only. Oh well.
The good: Accessibility. You get access to whatever it is you need without unpacking a single item (packed correctly). This is major. Imagine never having to dig for gear again. With top loading access, front panel, sleeping bag compartment, two large-ish side pockets, front pocket, and top pocket, whatever you need to grab is right at hand. My friends all own Osprey and are very impressed, even envious of the storage and overall greatness of design. It seriously is awesome once loaded up fully.
Fit: My old pack nearly killed me. Ok, not literally, but it was terrible for me. Goes to show to do some research before purchase. I would have half dollar size blisters along my tailbone from rubbing. Also another, same sized, in the middle of my back. With a trip barely begun, these blisters would eventually feel like cigar burns. The Baltoro 65 fits like a dream. My main concern was to find a pack that fit me great. Yes, it's a couple pounds heavier than a ton of options. But after 5 miles loaded with three days full gear (right at 36 lbs for me), I barely knew it was there. Easily stayed comfortable past the 10 mile point, and I'm not in any kind of great trail shape. Independently moving hip belt and shoulder straps work flawlessly. Exceptional EVA foam padding. As a skinny guy, lots of padding is my friend. All of the adjustment straps do their job as they should, perfectly.
I should deduct a star for the small hip belt pockets, but I won't. The fact that it has them (many do not!) is sufficient. Many may call this pack heavy. Ok...
