Updated for 2014! Striking a balance between weight and durability, the high-performance Gregory Z35 internal frame daypack employs lightweight, high-tenacity fabrics and an innovative, streamlined suspension system to provide load-carrying capability for long day hikes or overnights in the backcountry.
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 Z35'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 Z35 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 Z35 and ensure the stability of your load, allowing convenient on-the-go adjustment.
The single main compartment of the Z35 has an extendible drawstring-closed top entry, and a U-shape zippered entry allows full front access to the pack body. A huge front "bucket" pocket with mesh sides offers convenient storage for gear or wet clothes. The Z35's top pocket has a key clip and a second stash compartment on the underside. All of the zippers used on the Z35 are designed to be weather resistant.
The Z35 also includes side and bottom compression straps, quick-access waistbelt pockets, two exterior stretch water bottle pockets and hideaway gear loops. An integrated sleeve and exit port make the Z35 compatible with a hydration system (sold separately). A color-matched rain cover is also integrated.
Available in your choice of color options, the Gregory Z35 backpack is available in Medium (2136 cubic inch capacity) and Large (2258 cu in) size options.
Styles available: Large Solar Yellow, Large Storm Black, Medium Solar Yellow, Medium Storm Black
