Reviews Summary


Here's what the reviewers think about the Gregory Targhee:

Reviewers like these things about the Gregory Targhee

  • With padded shoulders and ergonomic design the backpack carries weight exceptionally well. The hip belt is also padded and is well balanced.
  • The backpanel is molded with a lumber pad allowing to transfer the loads to your hips.
  • The Gregory Targhee is equipped to carry ski/snowboard which is an advantage for winter trekking and hiking.
  • It contains a separate avalanche gear pocket and a stowable helmet carry net.
  • A large goggle pocket and a zippered hip pocket make it easy to store emergency utilities while commuting.
  • With thick ski straps it has a solid build and is more durable for your vacations.
  • The zipper pulls and buckles are largely designed to access easily wearing gloves.
  • The torso length for the pack is quiet good and the hip belt is quiet adjustable for larger wait sizes also.

Reviewers don't like these things

  • The design and spacing is neat and clean but lacks a little extra space to fit in all clothing and accessories for longer trips.
  • Some also complained that the water bladder doesn’t fit inside the compartment.
  • A few trekkers complained that the diagonal carry system doesn’t work well.

Dirtbag Dreams

The Gregory Targhee 45 is a big burly pack that has been well thought out and worth the money.

Posted 27 January 2016 by Lynne Wolfe - Read full review

Backpack Gear Test

It has great winter organizers for carrying avalanche tools, skis and snowshoes. The pack is comfortable while loaded and almost empty. The major drawback is the fixed lid.

The Big Outside

All in all, though, this is one of the most versatile and comfortable technical packs Ive seen for backcountryskiing or riding, snowshoeing, and climbing.
