The workhorse of Gregory's Z-series of packs, the Z-55 is a thru-hiker's dream—perfect for everything from 2-3 night trips of comfortable camping to long stints away from civilization when packing light.
Updated for 2014 to be 20% lighter than the previous model
Proprietary CrossFlo suspension system provides cooling airflow across the back without sacrificing load transfer
Ventilated, trampoline-style backpanel automatically tensions and increases in stiffness as you add weight to the pack
Lightweight wire X-frame provides superior load transfer directly to the lumbar pad and waistbelt; dynamic yoke integrates the shoulder harness directly to the X-frame for a perfect balance of flexibility and stiffness
Die-cut foam on harness and waistbelt enhances breathability and cuts down on weight
Two ways to pack/access gear: traditional top access (with floating lid) and a huge U-zipper for duffel-style front access
Front bucket pocket, front zippered pocket, top pocket (with key clip), and dual quick-access waistbelt pockets keep smaller gear organized and easily accessible
Features a hydration reservoir sleeve with port, as well as water bottle pockets on the sides
Side and bottom compression straps help reduce pack volume and secure your gear
Includes hideaway axe/trekking pole loops with secure carry
Integrated, color-matched rain cover keeps your pack protected from rain and mud; easily stows away when not in use
Ideal for carrying loads up to 40 lb. (great for a 2-3 night backpacking trip)
