Industry insiders respect the Gregory Baltoro Backpack as a top backpack. In 2016, the newest design of the Baltoro pack won another prestigious Backpacker Magazine Editor’s Choice Gold Award. Probably the most significant redesign features were higher tech materials that helped shed over 1 lb of weight and a waterproof phone/GPS pocket.
The Response AFS technology is a critical feature because it helps ensure weight is carried where it belongs; on your hips.
