Hiking packs: Miwok & Maya

Fast-Hiking Favourites

Compact backpacks for speed hiking or peak bagging over tricky terrain: the Miwok (for men) and the Maya (for women). GREGORY has fully reworked its Biosync suspension system for this popular backpack series. The back length is now adjustable and the hipbelt has wraparound comfort. These packs are dynamically suspended from the shoulder harness and hipbelt, which means they follow the natural movement of your body, even when moving at speed and over challenging terrain. The Miwok and Maya also have a few new features, like a dedicated hydration pocket.

“We’ve given the Miwok and Maya a full upgrade,” enthuses Brand Director Adrian Davison. “Our popular packs for speed hikers now fit even better and are fully adjustable, while still benefiting from superior ventilation.” This is down to the lightweight, flexible BioSync suspension system. The open-air back panel reduces back contact and increases airflow. Aero-mesh on the back panel, shoulder harnesses and hipbelt wicks perspiration away from the body.

The wide hipbelt wraps around the body for extra stability on fast-paced adventures. The hipbelt’s stretch construction and the stretch mesh tendons integrated into the shoulder harness attachments give it more agility and prevent the pack from getting in the way. As usual, GREGORY has designed a men’s model (Miwok) and a women’s model (Maya). Both models feature back lengths that are easily adjusted by up to nine centimetres and each model comes in three different volumes.

And when it comes to features the trail specialists at GREGORY have also outdone themselves. The packs have a dedicated zippered hydration pocket with SpeedClip fastening that can accommodate a GREGORY 3D Hydro Reservoir. The hipbelt pockets are sized to fit a smartphone and energy bar.

The men’s Miwok in 12, 18 and 24-litre volumes, and women’s Maya in 10, 16 and 22-litre volumes, will be available in stores from spring 2019. Men can choose between the colours Flame, Graphite Grey and Reflex Blue, and women between Mercury Grey (with a twin-colour zip in pink/orange), Meridian Teal or Poppy Red.

Further features of the Miwok and Maya include:

  • sunglasses Quickstow system on the shoulder harness
