The innovative women's specific suspension system of the Gregory Maven 45 Women's internal frame backpack allows it to comfortably carry up to 40 pounds and stow over 2500 cubic inches of gear at a weight well below that of its load-hauling peers.
Addressing the different wants and needs of female hikers Gregory's Women's backpacks cater to the woman on the go. Designed and tested by women these packs incorporate shoulder harnesses contoured to fit the female figure and hipbelt panels built to adjust to fit women's hip angles. Reflecting the difference in male and female ergonomics these packs also employ narrower backpanels.
Equipped with Gregory's innovative FreeFloat suspension system, the pack employs a lightweight wishbone alloy frame with a fiberglass anti-barreling stay along with a perforated foam backpanel and 3D Comfort Cradle hipbelt to maximize breathability and carrying comfort while keeping weight to a minimum. Adjustability in the women's specific harness and hipbelt allow you to customize fit. Load lifter straps and an adjustable sternum strap further enhance fit and ensure stability. To ensure a customized fit, the pack is available in Xsmall/Small (fits torso sizes ranging from 14"-17") and Small/Medium (16"-20") size options.
The top-loading main compartment of the pack has an extendible drawstring closure. A zippered front entry allows access to a separate, lower sleeping bag compartment and additional full-length vertical zipper provides side entry to the main packbag. A divider between the upper and lower compartments can be opened up to convert the pack to a single large compartment. A large front stuff pocket provides a place to keep discarded layers or other gear easily accessible. Zippered lid pockets and zippered hipbelt pockets offer additional organizational options. Side compression straps allow you to cinch down the packbag to keep the contents of the pack stabilized and they double as external lash points.
Other features include large side stretch water bottle pockets, trekking pole attachment points, a front harness quick-stow feature for sunglasses, and an included raincover. An integrated sleeve and exit port make the pack hydration compatible (3D Hydro Reservoir sold separately).
