Updated for 2014! Striking a balance between weight and durability, the high-performance Gregory J28 Women's internal frame daypack employs lightweight, high-tenacity fabrics and an innovative, streamlined suspension system to provide load-carrying capability for long day hikes. Despite its lightweight design, the J28 Women’s pack comfortably carries up to 35 pounds!
Addressing the different wants and needs of male and female hikers, Gregory incorporates contoured shoulder harnesses, narrower backpanels and pre-curved hipbelts into its series of women's-specific packs. These packs are designed and tested by women to ensure that their performance meets the expectations of female adventurers.
Well aware of the problems that arise from ill-fitting backpacks, Gregory is committed to providing fit, comfort and load-carrying capability. This commitment is evident in the technology used in the J28 Women’s pack’s harness and CrossFlo suspension system. A lightweight wire X-Frame and a trampoline-style backpanel work in tandem to support the stability of the J28 by distributing weight evenly and transferring the load to the lumbar pad and waist belt. Die-cut foam on the harness and waist belt adds breathability and decreases weight. The ventilated moisture wicking harnesses, waistbelt and backpanel enhance fit, aid in load transfer, provide cushioning and keep you cool on the trail. An adjustable sternum strap and load-lifter straps further enhance the fit of the J28 Women’s and ensure the stability of your load, allowing convenient on-the-go adjustment.
The single main compartment of the J28 Women’s has extended zippered top-load access to the pack body. The J28 Women’s also features an exterior zippered top pocket and an interior zippered mesh security pocket with a key clip. All of the zippers used on the J38 are designed to be weather resistant. Side and bottom compression straps, quick-access waistbelt pockets, two exterior stretch water bottle pockets and hideaway gear loops round out the J28 Women’s pack’s impressive feature set. An integrated sleeve and exit port make the J38 compatible with a hydration system (sold separately). A color-matched rain cover is also integrated.
Available in your choice of color options, the Gregory J28 Women’s backpack is available in Small (1708 cubic inch capacity) and Medium (1830 cu in) size options.
