Vs Other Bags

Gossamer Gear Gorilla vs Gossamer Gear Mariposa

The Gorilla and Mariposa are complimentary bags intended for those who want to bring their electronics with them when they decide to travel. The Gorilla gives you a level of space most bags out there simply don't have.

It's fairly hard to go out there and find a bag that will offer you the same space while still fitting over your shoulder. The Mariposa offers you some space but it's intended to provide comfort more so. Buy it if you want to experience the outdoors or see new sights without any inconveniences.

If you’re planning to carry loads under 30 lbs you wont find a better well thought out ultralight backpack than the Gossamer Gear Gorilla 40 ($215.00). It’s the sort of backpack you can travel long distances, without feeling much weight or strain against your back and body.
