Built for gear-intensive, day-long adventures, the Gregory Miwok 42 backpack strikes an excellent balance between lightweight design, load-hauling capability, and movement-mirroring fit. It weighs roughly 2.5 pounds but has 2500 cubic inches of storage capacity and the ability to comfortably carry up to 35 pounds!
The pack utilizes Gregory's unique BioSync active suspension. The shoulder harness and hip belt are connected to the pack body by overlapping, flexible "tendons" that enable the pack to adjust to your body's motion during high-aerobic activities. Because of the storage capacity of the pack, it also employs a lightweight alloy perimeter frame for proper load distribution. The length of the pack's harness can be adjusted to comfortably fit torsos varying in length from 16"-21". A 3D open-air backpanel encourages airflow while moisture-wicking aero-mesh in the harness and backpanel cool your body. Side compression straps enable you to safely cinch down the packbag to keep contents secure. An adjustable sternum strap enhances fit and load stability.
The top-loading pack also utilizes a large U-shaped zipper lets you get inside the pack without removing the lid. A top zippered pocket has a soft lining to help protect electronics or other items and an integrated clip keeps you keys safely stowed. A front stretch pocket is ideal for discarded layers and there are also small zippered hipbelt pockets and a zippered lid pocket.
Other features included a quick-stow system on the harness that keeps sunglasses in close reach, side stretch pockets, and trekking pole attachment points. A lined interior pocket, with an internal hanger, and a drinking tube pass-through make the pack hydration system compatible (hydration system sold separately).
