Gregory Baltoro and Deva trekking backpacks

All new, lighter & award winning

Baltoro and Deva, Gregory’s top models for long-distance, demanding treks are widely respected and legends in their time. They are the go-to packs for carrying heavy loads comfortably. For 2018, the technical backpack experts have given both models a full rework. New materials make both packs lighter and more robust. Further weight savings come courtesy of the optimised design and 7001 aluminium frame. The new Baltoro and Deva are also more comfortable to carry thanks to the lighter and more breathable matrix ventilated back panel on the Response A3 suspension system. This has also convinced the jury of 2017 “Outdoor Industry Award”, who awarded the Baltoro 65 as the only gold winner in the backpack category.

Baltoro and Deva have been Gregory’s flagship products for years – they are the ultimate trekking packs. They have everything that a good trekking pack should offer. They are robust, have a huge capacity, are unbelievably comfortable to carry and adjust to fit the wearer. Each size is available in three different back lengths and even the pre-curved 3D shoulder harness and hipbelt in LifeSpan EVA foam come in multiple sizes that allow easy fine-tuning.

Gregory has equipped the Baltoro and Deva with its new Response A3 suspension system. At the heart of the suspension system lie two independent shoulder harness panels and two independent hipbelt panels which pivot separately from one another and are adjustable in two positions. They are connected with one another via a 7001 aluminium frame. As a result, the whole frame automatically adjusts to the angle of the body of the person carrying it. The backpacks are comfortable to carry, well-balanced and can be adjusted at any time, however heavy the load. A detachable, 10 mm lumbar padding insert (Lumbar Tune) allows perfect adjustment in the lumbar region.

The back panel offers excellent moisture management. This is made possible by the very light and airy matrix foam which is covered in breathable mesh fabric. The result: the pack can be worn close to the body for better load distribution, without impairing ventilation.

Gregory makes both packs from abrasion-resistant 210D Honeycomb Cryptorip HD nylon and 210D high tenacity nylon, plus 630D nylon at the base. In the backpack experts have also given the new models a large stretch mesh pocket on the front of the pack. To centre the weight better, the two large zip side pockets have also been moved and now sit directly behind the large mesh pocket. This gives the overall pack a slimmer shape, reducing the risk of stumbling, without reducing volume.

Further features:

    • Ventilated, pre-shaped back section made of matrix foam with anti-slip lumbar padding with a silicone print
    • “Sidekick Pack”: compartment on the inside for a hydration system which also serves as a detachable, ultra-lightweight daypack for climbing mountains or heading off into the city

    • Removable compression strap on the bottom of the backpack – also serves as a waist belt for the SideKick day pack
    • Loops and elastic attachments on both sides for cords for ice tools or trekking poles
    • Zip pockets on front
    • Stretch mesh pocket on front of pack
    • Sleeping bag compartment, accessible from the outside, with removable divider inside
