Tried & True Tech for the Winter BackcountryAfter seeing that Gregory brought back some of its signature tech, I decided to size up from my old 32l Targhee to the 45l. As soon as I put it on it felt as “old glove” comfortable as my 20-something year old Forester. The top loading is an awesome feature that I missed in the 32l. This pack has plenty of room for a overnight tour, but with full compression, it cinches down to 50% volume really securely. There are plenty of attachment points, straps and stowage for my gear, although this missed getting 5 stars, because of two split/snowboarder-oriented design features they missed on:
1. Lack of pole storage - I usually throw them inside the pack or loosely attached to the outside.) It would be nice to be able to quickly secure them to the outside during transitions.
2. Inability to use helmet holder when packing a board vertically.

Comfortable, functional and well thought-out pack.Comfortable, functional and well thought-out pack. Gregory did a great job in designing this pack and it was definitely designed by folks who do BC ski touring. To begin, the pack is quite comfortable with loads. You can fit items in this pack much more easily than other ski touring packs I've tried. While it's not the lightest, for the size and carry capacity, it is light! I didn't think I'd use the Fast Track ski carry option, but on my second tour with it, I was using it bunches on the ascent. The FT is awkward if you're descending, at least for me at 5' 9". The shovel, probe compartment is very ample as well but beware that components can kind of slip out of this compartment when you take off your pack, set it down, etc.
Very happy and impressed!

Incredibly Innovative Bag![This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This bag has been a game changer for ski touring and backcountry skiing. I also love that the aluminum frame is removable making it a super lightweight bag to use for other adventures when you’re counting every ounce you’re carrying.
The best feature of this bag for me is that it allows you to stow your skis without removing the bag. This system keeps me moving and is incredibly efficient for saving time and energy. It only takes me about 12 seconds to stow I skis after using them about 15 seconds to get them off my pack. This system works incredibly well and I can’t imagine going back to a traditional pack after using this system.
The rest of the bag is made well. I use the hip bag a lot and love the long side zippers on the bag. The deployable helmet bag works well and a nice feature.
Overall this is a high quality bag that has held up incredibly well on my backcountry adventures here in Colorado. I’m hard on my bags and this one still looks brand new after quite a few week long trips. I highly recommend this pack.

Very Featured, Steep Learning CurveGood pack, loaded with features which makes it fiddly, but hoping I’ll get use to it. For example, the tool carry sleeve is integrated with the top opening of the main compartment, so it seems a bit confusing. Yeah, I know it’s a pack, not rocket science, but when you’re skiing opening your pack should be muscle memory, not a game of chess. I’m still on the steep end of the learning curve and wishing it was a simpler design, but I can see this being a great pack once I get use to it.
Another thing, loading skis for booting without removing your pack is brilliant, but in practice I found it difficult to do. With a loaded pack I found it impossible to swing the skis around the bulk of the pack to make it a diagonal carry, so in effect it was half an A-frame carry configuration with both skis held together vertically against one side of the pack, the red tail strap side. I need to practice at home before trying it on the skin track again. Very well made, and the 45 liter is huge. My Black Diamond 45 liter packs seem small in comparison. That said, the Gregory FT is still lighter than my BD packs.

Really ComfortableI have a Gregory Zulu and it was so comfortable I decided to try this one and it’s comfortable also
Not real crazy about the hydration hose routing though I can’t seem to find a comfortable place to put it

Very well made! Just used it in Rainier in May and it held up wonderfully. The ski strap system is a little finicky and can make the skis rest uncomfortably especially if you have to down climb steep snow.

FastRack is AWEsome! Somethings are weirdThe FastRack System is AWESOME! I love it. The over-all design of the pack is great! My Avy gear fits great. Definitely enough room for more than a single day mission. Lots of loops to clip things too. Hip pocket for stashing snacks.
My one complaint is how this pack is cut. Its got a semi-hard backing, which is really nice and feel sturdy, but the pack doesn't "sit up" like any other pack I have. It wont stand on its own...and often falls over. My GF has a woman's specific Gregory pack touring. It doesn't have the FastRack, but the over-all pack feels, and functions, just like any other pack she has. I dn't know why THIS pack is designed differently.
Over-all I like this pack. Holds my gear, fits nicely, feels comfortable when I'm wearing it. I'm just super annoyed that when I put it down, it topples over, unlike any other pack I have.
Spent 3d/2n on a hut trip
40lb pack was quite uncomfortable. I'm not a huge fan of the hip belt and how they did the back of the pack. It carried heavy on the shoulders.
Also, took tumble on a downhill skin and the plastic buckle failed on the hip strap. Voile strap to the rescue. However, I would expect more from a pack marketed as "multiday"
Ultimately I don't think it's a bad pack.... Just not to my liking

Solid pack for day trips.I like the pack overall, comfortable and roomy enough for anything you need to carry on most day trips. Could use some design improvements too make it 5 star though.
Good: The compartment for shovel/probe is also big enough to store wet items/skins and other things you want separate from extra layers and other dry items. The fast track carry system seems functional and sturdy, havent used it yet and it stores away nicely if you arent using it which is a plus if you dont like extra straps flapping around. I have a bad shoulder, so it will definitely improve boot packs that are too long to comfortably shoulder skis but too short to want to take off the pack and set up a traditional ski carry.
Could be better: Not a huge fan of how the helmet carry comes out the top of the equipment storage area. It makes it sit weirdly on the helmet and the hooks seem like they may come undone. It also seems to impact how securely that storage area closes up which could be bad for safety equipment.
The Bad: The chest strap height can be changed by moving it between attachment points on the shoulder straps. This is very easy to do, but the strap also can come off those loops very easily as well. Mine apparently fell off when removing my pack for digging a test pit and I had to use a ski strap to secure the pack across the chest for the ski down. The strap turned up eventually, but thought it was lost for good. I will figure out a way to ensure it doesnt fall off the pack if it comes detached again.
