Updated for 2014! Versatile and lightweight, the high-performance Gregory Maya 22 Women’s appeals to female hikers and mountain baikers who like to move fast. Despite weighing only 1 pount, 7 ounces, the 1343 cubic inch Maya 22 Women’s is sturdy enough to carry up to 20 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 Maya 22 Women’s pack’s BioSync active suspension. The Maya 22’s shoulder harness and hipbelt are connected to the pack body by overlapping, flexible "tendons" that enable the pack to adjust to your body's motion during high-aerobic activities. Breathable mesh and die-cut foam padding provide cushioning and help to keep you cool by wicking moisture. Side compression allows on-the-go adjustability and an adjustable sternum strap enhances fit and stability.
Numerous compartments on the Maya 22 Women’s provide access to the items you need without forcing you to pull out all of the contents of your pack to find them. The zippered main compartment opens wide for maximum access. A large zippered front pocket and internal elastic pockets offer further storage and organizational options. An expandable pocket on the front of the Maya 22 Women’s is large enough to accommodate a helmet, wet clothes or additional gear. Large side pockets offer yet another place to stash gear or water bottles and a sunglass stash on the harness assures that your eyewear is always within easy reach. Zippered mesh pockets running almost the entire length of the hipbelt provide handy on-trail access to snacks, gear or valuables. The Maya 22 Women’s has an integrated internal reservoir sleeve and zip-through access on the backpanel that allows you to refill your hydration system (sold separately) without having to remove it from the pack body. Reflective highlights add a measure of nighttime visibility and a safety light lash point allows you to easily clip on external lighting for the option of even greater visibility in darkness.
Made of incredibly lightweight, high tenacity fabrics, the Gregory Maya 22 Women’s backpack is available in your choice of color options.
