It cannot be denied that both the Gregory Amber and the Gregory Deva are highly attractive bags. But more importantly, many consumers find that they are rugged and durable for many journeys and a lot of commuting.

What delights many consumers abut the Gregory Amber is that this bag remains yet balanced and stable when it is bogged down with a lot of stuff. The contoured shoulder straps are ultra comfortable.

The Gregory Deva provides you with all the compartments you are looking for. This bag is lightweight, which makes it an ideal choice when you need to move quickly through crowed spaces, such as busy airport terminals.
