Reviewers like these things about Gregory Baltoro

  • The light weight makes it a perfect backpack for weekend camping and long vacations.
  • The adjustable shoulder straps with additional lumber support makes to distribute the weight for easy commuting.
  • This pack has the burliest suspension system and it loads extremely well. The suspension system allows both the shoulder straps and waist belt automatically pivot into the ideal angle to maximize load distribution and comfort.
  • The hip belt is very comfortable and allows easy hip movements.
  • It has good access both from top and bottom with the optional divider between the main compartment and the sleeping bag compartment below.
  • There are plenty of side pockets to carry sufficient gears for your trip.
  • An additional mesh bottle pocket allows you to fit in the water bottle for travelling.
  • The rain cover is excellent with a water proof pocket on the hip belt.

Reviewers don't like these things

  • Some complained that the backpack is not as stiff and durable compared to other models.
  • The chest strap is adjustable but not very comfortable for large chests.
  • The buckles in the chest strap are not much secure and can move up to the neck.
  • The zippers on the side compartments are also reversed which can make things fall when leaning over.

It is a comfortable pack when under heavy loads and over long distances. It compresses down well for use as a day pack from a base camp. It is very well constructed and can repel a ridiculous amount of rain. Packing is easy and there are enough options for small gear storage.
