Gregory Mountain Products elevated its backpacking and hiking packs collection for spring 2023 by redesigning its long-standing Zulu, Jade, Miko, and Maya suspension systems. The brand also expanded its reservoir collection with two styles added to its Nano collection.
The Zulu and women’s Jade in the ventilated backpacking and hiking category offer a more supportive and comfortable suspension system, dynamic carry, improved torso adjustment, and recycled materials. The new FreeFloat dynamic hipbelt moves with the body, and additional hipbelt padding offer a body-hugging fit. The suspended, open-air backpanel increases ventilation with 3.5-inches of adjustability. Using recycled materials and a data-driven life cycle analysis tool, Gregory reduced the carbon footprint for Jade by 26 percent and Zulu by 55 percent. The Zulu comes in a 30L and 65L capacity; the Jade 28L and 63L.
The Miko and women’s Maya are suited for day hikes with a BioSync suspension system with elasticized shoulder harness and hipbelt. The adjustable backpanel has 3.5-inches of flexibility, and the cool contour foam backpanel and shoulder harness promote airflow. Offered in four capacities, from 15 to 30 liters, both packs are available in plus sizes. Gregory reduced the carbon footprint by 26 percent for Maya and 20 percent for Miko with recycled materials and its data-driven lifecycle analysis tool.
The Nano Shoulder Bag and Nano Switch Sling are suited for everyday carry with easy access storage and a low-profile design. The Nano’s cross-body shoulder strap is adjustable, and the Switch Sling features a cross-body design with a padded shoulder strap. Both bags are 3.5 liters.
In the reservoir category, the Hydro 2L offers a fill handle connected to the cap holding the reservoir in place while filling it with an open/close screw cap. The SpeedClip backpack connector, compatible with any pack, fits the reservoir into a pack.
The spring 2023 collection will be available at retail in February 2023. For more product information, go here.
