Product Description

Product Description

A classic trail favorite, the Palisade provides all of the features you would expect from a hardcore load hauler with a fresh new look. Guaranteed to last as long as the memories you make with it.

A trail favorite, the redesigned Palisade 80 backpack offers all the features you would expect from a hardcore load hauler but with a fresh new look. The Palisade 80 is equipped with Gregory's Response CFS suspension system, which includes such features as a quick-adjust, five-point angle waist belt and an ultra-soft pre-curved 3D harness. By adjusting to five different hip belt angles with ease, the waist belt combines with the harness to provide maximum comfort by eliminating wrinkles and hot spots on the main contact areas of the hips and shoulders. As a result, the pack feels as comfortable at the end of the hike as it did at the beginning. The Response CFS system also employs twin aluminum stays that are supported by a horizontal anti-barreling cross stay, ensuring that the pack will not barrel under extreme weight.

Storage-wise, the Palisade 80 includes a large main compartment, a front pocket with a stash pouch, a top pocket that converts to a fanny pack, dual waist-belt pockets, a hideaway water bottle holder, and a stash pocket. The pack is even hydration compatible, with a built-in hydration sleeve and dual exit ports. Other features include top, front, and bottom access; a water- and wear-resistant bottom panel; water-resistant zippers; and a sturdy exterior made of 210D HT double diamond ripstop and broken twill nylon fabrics. All Gregory packs carry a lifetime warranty.

About Gregory Mountain Products
Company founder Wayne Gregory--who designed his first backpack at 14 as part of a Boy Scout project--opened Gregory Mountain Products in 1977 in San Diego, California. From the start, Wayne wasn't just meticulous about designing packs that improved upon fit and used the best materials available, he also wanted to know how his designs worked in the field and what he could do better, a heritage of accessibility that has continued to the present. In the early days, he loved to talk tech with customers at his retail store in San Diego, asking for feedback on what worked and what didn't. Ultimate, Wayne realized that fit was king in the backpack business, and he pioneered many firsts, including being the first company 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, automatically improving load transfer; and developing the center-locking bar tack, a stitch that ends and locks off on the center of a seam instead of the side to improve strength at the major stress points. From the earliest days, Gregory packs were noted for their innovative design, ergonomic and comfortable fit, and high quality.

I bought this pack as my last pack to hike with my last child. At 54 with 3 herniated discs I needed a pack made to fit the body correctly to eliminate undue strain or torque to the muscles and vertebrae of the back. I went to REI where the guy there told me this was the pack for me, he too has back issues. I wore it around the store for 30 minutes with 40 pounds in it and had no pain or strain. There is a Utube video on how to fit it properly and a video on the company website on how to fit this pack. So I tried to get a medium pack with large straps from REI and that failed miserably (REI is just not set up to do special orders in less time than weeks)so I ended up ordering it from Amazon at $140 less no tax and free two day shipping. I then called the company, Gregory Mountain Products who sent me the retrofit straps (my torso fit a medium pack but my gutso needed large straps) for free on the promise I return the old ones. I got the straps, retrofitted the pack and then went hiking with the Boy Scouts in the Grand Canyon on a 10 mile hike to Havasupai that includes a 2400 foot elevation gain in two miles and had absolutely no back problems. I wish I had a car that was this good. This pack fits so well and moves with you you do not feel the weight at all. It so perfectly aligns the weight on your hips, has a waist strap that allows for adjustment to fit your shape so it stays over your hips and articulates to allow for natural hip movement. It has comfortable strapping,all the room you need for your gear for two days to ten days (its 80L capacity) and extra room for common gear to support a group. It is more money than other similar sized packs without the belting/harness system but once you go Gregory you will never go cheap for the backpack again. In a word the pack and the company Rocks. this pack gave me the freedom to go into the backcountry like I did when I was a kid and enjoy it. You go Gregory Mountain Products!!!!!

Size: LargeColor: Iron Gray
This pack is absolutely wonderful. It has space, tons of access points and is the most comfortable pack I have ever worn. There are a ton of adjustments to make the fit perfect. 80L capacity is big enough for a weeks worth of gear without becoming too bulky of a pack. If you are looking into becoming a serious packer (or if you already are) then this is the pack for you! WELL worth the money (and i know it is a lot)...Sometimes you simply pay for a name, but with this pack, you are paying for the highest quality and comfort. Read other reviews and check out other online sources...they all agree. Anyway...that is my two cents worth.

First of all, I bought this pack at REI Seattle because I needed some serious advice from a specialist or at least, someone who knew what they were talking about. My last 2 packs were so terrible and hurt so bad not due to my own packing/adjustments. I had already known this pack was 100 dollars more at REI but because of the hour or two advice and support of the employee working in the packs department I decided to just buy it there.

That being said, this pack is probably one of the top 5 you can buy for this size and capacity/load size. Let me explain why..

- Most comfortable pack I have ever put on. Even when you have 80 lbs of crap inside of it, this pack shines as being comfortable. When I put this pack on with 70 lbs of gear, it feels like around 35 on my back

- Straps, buckles, materials - As many of you know with experience in lesser quality backpacks, this pack does not suffer from inferior quality materials or design to save a few bucks. The buckles could be a bit better, but they are sound. The stitches will not rip, the buckles will not break, and most importantly the zippers will not come apart, even when you are zipping up a compartment that is stuffed to the brim. A+ design and construction.

- Weight distribution: Even if you load more weight into the left side than the right or vice versa, once you strap in this pack correctly you will be amazed that you cannot tell the difference. With the pack undone resting on your shoulders, you can feel the 10 lbs difference on one side or the other, but once you buckle in and strap up you seriously cannot tell that one side is off at all. I was impressed. It is like magic almost. Not even kidding.

I purchased the Palisade 80L pack in March of 2012 and I have since used it backpacking in Arizona, on a cycling trip through Ireland, hiking in Scotland, and the Camino de Santiago in Spain. This pack has proven itself time and time again for it's reliability, comfort, and durability. I originally purchased this pack for its ability to carry heavy weight without too much strain on the body. I am 5' 10", 160 lbs with a damaged shoulder and I can carry an easy 50+ lbs without any issues. Most of my trips have been loaded with 25-30 lbs plus a grocery bag of food.

One thing to consider is that it is not waterproof and a rain cover should be used. Through a series of unfortunate events, my pack ended up in the Atlantic on the Irish Coast. I was able to remove the aluminum supports and drop it off at a cleaner, good as new.

I was worried about the pack being too large or too heavy but the good news is, if you need the space, you have it! If you don't, empty space never hurt anyone. I would highly recommend this pack and I look forward to many more years of use.
