Gregory added a variety of extra pockets in addition to the main compartment, including a large front pocket, two side pockets, dual waist belt pockets, and a hideaway water bottle holder. Hydration is always a must while on the trail, which is why the Deva 60 also comes with a reservoir sleeve and dual drink-tube exit ports (reservoir sold separately). Other features include an auto-fit waist belt system, an aero-mesh moisture-wicking back panel, a Gription mesh lumbar pad, a single aluminum stay, water-resistant zippers, and a dual-layer wear-resistant bottom panel.
The Deva 60's women's-specific fit is designed to fit a woman's unique body shape.

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.
