Just got my new pack!

Post by jaysmith » May 06 2009 3:36 pm

Just picked up my new pack (my first pack, too!) the Gregory Baltoro 70! I can't wait to get it out there and use it!
I've already read all the reviews and stuff, but has anyone here on HAZ had any experience with it? Maybe things to look out for?

Anything Gregory is G2G in my book.

Looks like a great pack for a serious outing.

I had to replace my Alice Pack that a coworker spilled diesel fuel on this past year, I had been using that pack since 1973. I still used the frame but I replaced it with one made by Tactical Tailor that I received as a gift. Still enjoy the Alice pack but have upgraded shoulder straps and kidney pad. I also use a thermarest seat pad that fits in the frame to pad my back. Very comfy pack and comes in earth tone colors.
