Product Description

Slightly smaller than the Z65, the 55-liter Z55 is ideal for long weekends in the backcountry and gear-heavy alpine overnights. Superlight thru-hikers can stuff this versatile pack for longer trips, while dropping a few crucial ounces from their backs and keeping a feature set not found on other lightweight hiking packs.

I bought my Z55 online. I am very happy with it and below I will write some first impressions and details that I wish I had known while researching for the best backpack.

First, I must say that I use the backpack for traveling, not for trekking. Therefore a key feature for me was the U-form front access. This reduced the number of models to consider to some small Deuter backpacks, the Mercury Black Diamond, and the Quechua Symbium access. I chose the Z55 because it was lighter and close to the perfect volume of 50 Lt that I was looking for.

Second, I had to decide the size (S, M, or L). Be careful when you measure your torso length, do not confuse the pointy part of your hip-bone with the top part of it, which is a bit deeper. Watch carefully some tutorials. Those 3 centimeters of difference lead me to choose the M size instead of the S and I think it was the right decision.

Third, I was wondering whether the backpack could be used as a carry-on luggage in airplanes. The answer is yes! Although the minimum length of the backpack (not fully loaded and just considering the rigid part that cannot be squeezed) is 59 centimeters (and the maximum length allowed is usually 55 cm) I managed to fit it in the frames that they use at the airports to check whether a luggage is small enough. I did this by tilting and squeezing it a little, not too difficult. As far as I could know, the S and L sizes vary the length of the rigid part, but I don't have the measures.

Fourth, be aware that the belt is quite long. I am very thin and the ends of the hip-belt once it is fastened almost touch each other, leaving no room to tight it enough. Still, it works for me, but if the L size of the backpack had a longer belt (as I believe it does) it would have been to long.

Looking for a good one or two nights backpacking pack and I found it with Gregory Z55. The pack can easily handled a load up to 30 pounds. I found it to be quite a stable backpack when hiking over uneven trail. The support elements works very well. I like the fact that Gregory developed this "cross-flo" concept that keep most of pack off your back. It has a curve that settled perfectly on your hips, allowing the weight to spread evenly. After hiking seven miles over uneven terrain, I really didn't know that the pack was there even with 30 pound load. While my friends took off their backpacks during breaks,,,,I kept my own.

The pack can be access from the bottom or the top. It got front two pockets plus two side open pockets for all the extra stuff you might need without opening up the backpack. The straps are well designed and serves their purposes. It comes with an own rain cover. The top cover also got two pockets. The interior one for your valued documents and outside pocket that is pretty large by itself.

The pack comes in three sizes. The small size is only 52 liters while the large size comes in 58 liters. The one I owned is medium and it is your standard 55 liters big. This is a pretty well designed backpack and it can be used for many purposes depending on what kind of a packer you are.

Color Name: Storm BlackSize Name: Small Verified Purchase
I have been very pleased with my Gregory backpack. It is very lightweight, yet has room to accommodate essentials. It works just as well as a daypack for a 14,000 ft hike as it does for a 5-day backpacking adventure. The air venting feature is great and it's very handy to have the built-in rain cover. Only issue would be that the shoulder straps become uncomfortable when carrying 30lbs+.
