Suitcase or pack? It’s both!

For autumn 2018, technical trekking and mountaineering pack specialist GREGORY, is launching two new travel packs. They combine their sophisticated suspension technology (genderspecific design) with the advantages of a travel pack. The well thought out partitioning makes it really easy to organise all your clothes, shoes, kit, phone, camera etc. The pack opens like a suitcase yet the suspension provides the comfort you’d expect from a full-blown backpack.

You know the scenario, don’t you? There are no escalators or your Airbnb happens to be down an unpaved track, so you end up having to carry your ‘practical’ trolley bag after all. Or: your trusty big pack is great to carry but living out of it is a nightmare with stuff strewn everywhere. And the straps
always get snagged up at check-in, too.

The new Adventure Travel Packs from GREGORY bring together the sophisticated suspension of a technical pack and the features of a cleverly organised travel suitcase. So, instead of feeling like you’re carrying some foreign object on your back, these packs feel more like a perfectly fitting shoe.

The backpanel opens out fully, so the contents are accessible just as they would be in a suitcase. The waterproof, dustproof and stinkproof, zippered “ActiveShield Compartment” prevents wet, dirty clothes, shoes and kit from mingling with your clean gear. The full-zip front compartment conceals an
organisation panel for your mini ‘office’: multiple compartments for pens, notebooks and other bits and bobs, plus padded laptop and tablet sleeves. With a small zippered pocket on the top for your phone or money.

Clever little detail: When you pull the compression straps, the Flip Guard flexible compression panels protect the zippers on the front compartment. And the travel-ready suspension stows fully in a dedicated pocket. But this doesn’t stop it being a fully-functional, comfortable suspension system: The  hipbelt is adjustable and padded, the shoulder harness contoured with multi-density padding. The backpanel is even length-adjustable in the large model. Shoes have their own space in a separate  zippered compartment.

The men’s version Praxus comes in Indigo Blue and Pixel Black, the women’s version Proxy in Antigua Green and Mystic Grey. Both models come in a 45-litre and a 65-litre version
