(Salt Lake City, Utah) - Gregory, the industry leader in backpacks and adventure travel gear, announces the addition of six new All Mountain series backpacks. The spring 2012 All Mountain series is perfect for overnight trips, trekking, travel and general mountain use and features packs ranging from 35 to 58 liters.
â€œWe heard from a lot of people that they wanted a lightweight version of our larger feature rich packs,â€ says Gregory's lead All Mountain series Designer, Mark Thibadeau. â€œWe designed the Savantâ„¢ and Sageâ„¢ series packs around our new super comfortable Intuition 3D suspension. The packs are versatile enough for use in the backcountry with the ability to travel across the globe equally as well.â€
Gregory's new All Mountain line includes the Savantâ„¢ 58 and women's specific Sageâ„¢ 55 (MSRP $199), Savantâ„¢ 48 and women's specific Sageâ„¢ 45 (MSRP $179), and the Savantâ„¢ 38 and women's specific Sageâ„¢ 35 (MSRP $159). All numbers refer to the specific liter size of the backpack.
The new Intuition 3D suspension is built upon Gregory's expansive knowledge of backpack technology and was developed specifically for the Savantâ„¢ and Sageâ„¢ series. The new suspension system provides incredible comfort in load carrying by utilizing a cross ridged back-panel with moisture-wicking mesh and a lightweight but sturdy internal wire frame. Similar to many of Gregory's larger pack offerings, the new series features integrated rain covers, front access zippers, external hydration access, and side and bottom compression. Other innovations include sidestash quick access pockets perfect for a headlamp or passport and an incredibly water resistant roll top style lid.
Gregory showed the S12 pack line to retailers at the summer Outdoor Retailer show that took place August 4th through August 7th in Salt Lake City, Utah.
