SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (January 23, 2020) – Gregory’s fall 2020 collection is focused on increased sustainability, faster transition times and more effective organization and versatility. From everyday adventures, to skiing big lines and traveling the world, the brand’s newest collections show how the Gregory design team is thinking across categories about next-level performance.

While innovation and steady improvement have always been a hallmark at Gregory, the brand is taking steps toward a more sustainable future in 2020 by creating a tool that effectively assesses the footprint of its manufacturing process and materials. Not only allowing the team to better offset their carbon footprint through data-driven assessment and decision-making, but also giving the consumer an opportunity to as well.

Sustainability Driven by Data

The Resin, Gregory’s first-ever pack constructed entirely from recycled fabrics was created using a custom, life cycle assessment (LCA) tool. Gregory uses the LCA tool to calculate the carbon footprint of all materials and energy used to create, sew and ship a product. Gregory’s design team used that data to reduce the carbon footprint of the Resin by 59%. The same tool empowers consumers to take actionable steps to offset the carbon footprint of their purchase. For example, to offset the footprint of the Resin, a consumer can carpool, use mass transit, or bike 19 miles. Beyond the eco-friendly and PVC-free fabrics, purchasers will find Gregory’s usual attention to detail and thoughtful design. The weather-resistant front panel and dedicated laptop sleeve keep gear protected on the go. The Resin is available in 24 ($99.95), 26 ($109.95) and 30-liter capacities ($119.95).

Faster Transitions for Skiers

Awarded the 2020 ISPO Gold Award for its innovation and forward-thinking design, the Targhee FastTrack (FT) introduces game-changing technology to backcountry skiing with its new FastTrack ski carry system. Inspired by the quick-turnaround times needed for SkiMo racing, the FT ski-carry is a friction-based system that allows seamless loading and unloading of skis in a few easy steps. The system works by sliding skis through a lower loop of material, wrapping a reinforced, elasticized strap around the upper part of the skis, pulling them over the shoulder and locking them into place with an innovative hook system – all while wearing your pack. Designed by a team of dedicated skiers at Gregory, thoughtful design features extend to include durable, weatherproof materials and weight-reducing stripability for long days on the skin track. In addition, the Targhee’s aluminum hardware is optimized for use while wearing gloves, and the thermoformed back panel wards off snow build-up. This minimalist yet incredibly high-performing pack brings light and quick transitions to the backcountry. The Targhee FT starts at 3 lbs and is available in 35 ($219.95) and 45-liter ($239.95) capacities.

Digital Savvy, Versatility for Travelers

The Juxt, available in 28-and-34-liter capacities – is the ultimate companion for the modern, digital traveler, melding tech-organization with high-performance carrying comfort.

The Detour, available in 40-and-60-liter capacities, combines smart-style and a minimalist design, with gear protection and the convenience of organization and quick access to necessities. Offering a lockable main zipper and padded front panel to protect your gear, and a dedicated laptop sleeve for impact protection.

The Juxt 28 is $199.95, and Juxt 34 $219.95. The carry-on friendly Detour 40 is $119.95, and the larger Detour 60 is $139.95.
