Addressing the different wants and needs of male and female hikers, Gregory's Women's backpacks cater to the woman on the go.

Reflecting the difference in male and female ergonomics, these packs also employ narrower backpanels.
Having spent numerous years and countless miles out on the trail, the designers at Gregory are well aware of the problems that arise from ill-fitting backpacks. Unwilling to compromise comfort or load-carrying capability, Gregory's commitment to providing the perfect fit is evident in the technology used in the women's specific Intuition 3D Suspension. Comprised of a lightweight, sturdy 4mm steel wire frame, an anti-barreling stay and a cross-ridge backpanel, the suspension effectively transfers load to your hips, minimizes contact points to aid in ventilation and provides comfortable support.
A ventilated moisture-wicking harnesses, waistbelt and backpanel enhance fit, aid in load transfer and provide further cushioning. An adjustable sternum strap and load-lifter straps further enhance the fit of the Sage 45 Women's pack and ensure the stability of your load while allowing convenient on-the-go adjustment.
