Gregory Explore-Series - Retro-Style Daypacks

Explore in Comfort

Autumn 2018 sees GREGORY releasing the new Explore Series. The four new models blend modern technical fabrics with timeless silhouettes and the excellent pack fit you’d expect from GREGORY. The four models are inspired by and named after the renowned explorers and adventurers: Boone, Muir, Workman and Baffin. They pay homage to the past while remaining firmly fixed in the present, and are set to be timeless classics of the future.

The four retro-design Explore models are made of extremely robust high-tenacity nylon fabric combined with technical mesh for better comfort and suspension system ventilation. All models feature a small internal zip pocket with key clip, a larger padded laptop or tablet sleeve and several other compartments for your everyday items.

The Boone is pulled straight from the Gregory alpine archives and reworked for the modern era with highly functional, technical fabrics. It provides 31 litres of storage and sophisticated organisation options. It also features an external access laptop sleeve with a weatherproof lid pocket and extra storage in the base for footwear, a lightweight sleeping bag or clean clothes.

Named after the adventurer and climber Jon Muir, this 29-litre daypack has enough room for your bouldering kit and spare clothes when you’re couch-surfing, following the best conditions. The separate bottom compartment can accommodate a blanket, shoes, or dirty laundry. And a padded sleeve with external access keeps your laptop secure and close-to-hand.

The design of the Workman is wholly focused on being simple yet highly functional. It offers numerous organisation options and a soft-lined accessory pocket with a water resistant zip. Just like its fellow Explorer models, it also has a padded laptop sleeve and an attachment option for a bicycle light. Volume: 28 litres.

The Baffin is like a classic toploader rucksack. But behind the lid flap there is a central zipper that divides the open-top main compartment to allow instant full-length access to gear. Inside there is a dedicated laptop sleeve, and a mesh bottle pocket for a thermos flask or water bottle. The lid features a water resistant zippered pocket with soft lining. So, you don’t have to worry about your shades or smartphone getting scratched. For cyclists, the Baffin also features a loop to attach a bike light. Volume: 23 litres.

All four models in the line are available in the colours Ink, Black and Midnight Blue. The Boone is 31 litres, the Muir 29 litres, the Workman 28 litres and the Baffin 23 litres.
