Product Description

Designed for the backcountry adventurer seeking multiple pockets and zip-thru access points, the Gregory Baltoro 75 satiates with 75 liters of highly organized backpack. The pack is outfitted with Gregory's Response AFS suspension system, an independent rotating waist-belt system that automatically registers and adjusts to your hip angle. This pivoting belt mirrors your body's movements and evenly distributes the weight, helping the pack support larger loads without restricting your movement or stressing your hips and shoulders. Gregory also added a thermo-molded EVA back panel with a grippy lumbar pad. The back panel and lumbar pad help the pack stay properly positioned throughout your hike for a better overall experience. Comfort is essential on long hikes, and the Baltoro 75 delivers.

The Baltoro 75 offers three ways to access your gear: through the top, the front, and the bottom. The multiple access points let you grab your shoes from the bottom of the pack without rustling through the rest of your gear. The pack also sports several smaller pockets, including a zippered front pocket, twin side pockets, dual hip-belt pockets, and a hideaway water bottle pocket with a bungee. And that doesn't include the removable top lid pocket, which converts into a fanny pack or sling bag while keeping your compass, maps, and other small essentials close at hand. The pack even boasts a stash pocket on the underside of the lid for personal items.

And hydration is always a must while on the trail, which is why the Baltoro 75 comes with a reservoir sleeve and dual drink-tube exit ports (reservoir sold separately). All Gregory packs carry a lifetime warranty.



The Baltoro 75 includes a rotating waist-belt system that mirrors your body's movements.

About Gregory Mountain Products
Wayne Gregory designed his first backpack at age 14 as part of a Boy Scout project. Shortly afterward, he met Andy Drollinger, the founder of San Diego California Adventure 16. Andy was so impressed with Wayne's design that he invited the Boy Scout to visit the Adventure 16 factory, where he began tinkering with a variety of backpack ideas. Wayne soon became the young company's second employee. Wayne opened his first company, Sunbird, in 1970, but dissolved it a few years later after expressing frustration with the limitations of external frame designs. He founded Gregory Mountain Products in 1977, eventually pioneering many firsts, including being the first to build backpacks in different frame, harness, and waist belt sizes; the first (and still only) pack manufacturer to develop a waist belt system that adjusts to fit different hip angles; and developing the center-locking bar tack, a stitch that ends and locks off on the center of a seam instead of the side for increased strength at major stress points. Gregory is located in Sacramento, California.
