This backpack seemed to have everything I wanted for a major backpacking trip: space, pockets, front/side access to the main compartment. It was one of only a few backpacks this size (the other being the Kelty Red Cloud), and it even looks good aesthetically.

But the backpack failed on Day One. The plastic in the hip strap is brittle, and the way it is constructed (in an "X" pattern, presumably to save weight) makes is susceptible to fracturing. When we unloaded the pack (had not even hit the trail!), the left hip strap was cracking and the right hip strap had broken clear through into two pieces just held together by fabric. I was aghast that such an expensive and otherwise attractive new backpack could have such a poor design for an essential component like the hip strap. I've never seen this happen with another backpack (certainly not my old backpack, which lasted me 15 years), and I later found out that the reviews on REI.com are full of people with exactly this issue.

I returned the backpack under warranty and purchased the Kelty Red Cloud instead, which has almost all the same features and size and a solid hip strap.

After almost 20 years of trekking, backpacking and mountaineering, I decided to hang up my trusty mule of a pack, the Lowe Alpine Contour IV, and splurge on a comfortable load master, the Gregory 95 (large).

I packed it for a 10 trip to knock out 5 14ers (and a few 13ers) in the Sawatch Range of Colorado.

When I pulled it out of the Eagle Creek XXL duffle in Denver, I noticed the plastic in the hip belt was snapped.

What that meant was for the entire time we were backpacking to basecamp, my heavy load (60+lb) was pinched into my shoulders.

I don't know if it cracked during transit, or if I missed the crack in the store (as some other reviewers have noted that these packs often come defective).

Additionally, just through normal usage on one trip, the fabric has several rips, punctures and tears. It seems delicate. I didn't notice any stitching blow-outs, but will watch (as other reviewers have noted on different back country sites) for that since it seems to be common.

I guess that they don't make them like they used to. I have contacted Gregory and am waiting for a return authorization.

In the meanwhile, for my upcoming winter trip, I am pulling out the trustworthy Lowe Alpine instead.

Sadly, I had always heard that Gregory's were the top of the line in comfort and durability, and for the price they charge, you would expect that.

Be very cautious if you are looking at an extended trip with more than 40lb loads, have a backup plan in case it fails far from civilization.

This is not your weekend pack; although, it can be used for that. This is for one or two week treks into the wilderness. For those purposes, this pack does the job very well. Although I have yet to use the hydration system option, it's there. It even has a usable and roomy detachable day pack.

Our family owns two of these packs. We do a lot of backpacking, and these packs have our highest praise. I really like the number of pockets on this pack that make it very easy to access gear. The main compartment is accessible from the front, sides and top.

The sleeping bag compartment is really nice. Misplaced your stuff sack? Just stuff it in here.

Not enough room inside? This pack has plenty of external straps.

I love this pack. It is huge, sturdy, and comfortable.

The most outstanding aspect is the confort. The shoulder straps are on pivots which allow them to wrap around at the perfect angle. The hip belt is adjustable. Both are well padded. The back of the hip belt is made of a rough material that allow it to grip and stay put when moving around. Once I strap this pack on and tighten it up--that's it--no more fussing, it just fits perfectly. I have been on multiday hikes with 50+ lb. loads with no problem.

The waterproof material on the bottom and the pockets on the hip belt are nice touches. The only con is that the water bottle holder on the side of the pack is difficult to reach when the pack is on. I usually just have my water in a bladder though so this isn't much of an issue for me.

I love my Mt. Whitney. It is a large back pack and may weigh more than other packs, but I like its functionality and versatility. It has several compartments and pockets. All compartments and pockets off main chamber can be accessed in at least two ways. There is a hole between the lower and upper compartment for hiking poles or other long objects. It also has several compression straps, so as you burn through your supplies you can cinch it up and keeps things tight. It is the most comfortable pack I have owned and if I need to I can carry over 60lbs. in it. I am 6 foot tall and weigh 200lbs, if that helps anyone. Gregory has building packs for a very long time and it shows. Everyone has their own taste, but I recommend at least looking at the Gregorys. See if you can borrow one and wear it loaded up.

This back pack is really something, it is huge!!! I have used the bag on dozens of weekend long as well as week long expeditions all over the Rockies. You have access to everything in your pack from just about every side, the two sides have zippers that go almost all the way down the side of your pack making side access to something near the bottom of your pack very easy, there is also the same access from the back but it is also its own pocket. The bottom compartment is not very large in comparison to the upper portion of the bag, it will fit a sleeping bag in a compression sack but I find it more useful to put things I may want more ready access to such as change of clothes food etc.. Another really nice feature to this pack is the large number of compression straps which allow you to keep everything really tight making sure nothing will shift around on you. The shoulder straps share this feature as well. Overall I would highly recommend this pack to anyone who wants to be able to take a large amount of stuff all neatly packed and easy to access all built into a comfortable package
