Trekking backpack Gregory Wander

Wander for youth hikers

The Wander is a full-spec hiking and trekking pack, specially designed for adolescents and young adults. Just like the larger packs from Gregory, the Wander comes with top-quality suspension and ample features. The VersaFit suspension effectively transfers the load to the soft, padded hipbelt and stabilises the pack. The back length is adjustable. The Wander pack comes in two sizes (50 litres and 70 litres) and will be on sale from summer 2019.

Young adults are often lumbered with packs that are too big for them – simply because there are none available that fit properly. This is where the Wander comes in. It offers the same trail specs as the grown-up versions: The same perfect fit, and the same carry comfort, durable materials and proven functionality. The only difference is in the back length.

The 3D open-air back panel ensures good airflow and the spring steel and fibreglass reinforced internal frame of the VersaFit suspension effectively transfers the load onto the hipbelt and gives it added stability. Moisture-wicking mesh fabric means you can say goodbye to sweaty backs and the padded hipbelt makes it a comfortable carry. Both the back panel and hipbelt are individually adjustable (the back length by up to 10 cm).

The features of these junior packs are also of the same standard as the adult models: A large U-zip opening for easy access to the main compartment, without having to open the lid flap. A durable front stretch mesh stuff pocket provides quick access to a rain jacket or sandals, while side mesh pockets accommodate a drinks bottle. The pockets on the hipbelt are good for keeping a mobile phone or some snacks handy.

Both versions contain a made-to-measure rain cover. Trekking poles, ice tools or even a hydration reservoir can all be attached to the outside using the integrated webbing loops. These are also reflective, making it easier to locate the pack in the dark. The sternum strap buckle features a safety whistle for emergencies.

The Wander is a unisex pack and available in two different sizes (50 and 70 litres) in Shadow Black and Fiery Red from summer 2019.
