The classic, award-winning Gregory Baltoro 75 internal frame backpack boasts a wealth of access points, an array of trail-worthy features and an innovative, custom-fit suspension system that combine to make this 4300+ cubic inch pack a backcountry workhorse.
Determined to avoid the failings of ill-fitting backpacks, Gregory has equipped the Baltoro 75 with the high-performance Response Automatic Angle Adjust (A3) suspension system. Designed to flex with the natural movements of your body, a “wishbone” 7075 aluminum alloy wire frame works in tandem with an HDPE framesheet to distribute weight evenly, providing superior load stability, comfort and range of motion. A composite EVA foam backpanel offers breathability and support while resting comfortably against your back. Extensive, contoured padding in the harness, lumbar area, and hipbelt further enhance both fit and comfort. A removable shim of EVA foam can be used or removed to beef up the lumbar padding to best suit your preference. The pre-curved shoulder straps and hipbelt fins move independently of one another to mirror your every movement on-trail or off. These components are available in varying sizes, allowing you to customize the Baltoro 75 to deliver the best fit for backpackers of all shapes and sizes. If you require customization of components, please leave detailed instructions about what size hipbelt and/or harness you need in the “Order Comment” field on the “Order Review” screen at checkout or call us at 1.800.617.0643 to place your customized order directly with one of our Gear Specialists. A sternum strap and load-lifter straps further enhance the pack’s fit and ensure the stability of your load.
A lashed divider separates the top and front-entry main compartment of the Baltoro 75 from a lower sleeping bag compartment, allowing for organization and separation of wet and dry gear. When hauling longer items or in need of access between the two compartments, you can unhook the divider and convert the Baltoro 75 to a single, large compartment. The extendible lid of the Baltoro 75 includes a weather-resistant zippered pocket for stowing gear and can be detached entirely to save weight. The pack has a wealth of other organizational features, including an enormous zippered front pocket, dual zippered bellows side pockets, two sizable and separated lid pockets, and a smaller zip pocket on the underside of the lid.
Other features include a canted, hideaway water bottle holder, two zippered hipbelt pockets one of which is entirely waterproof, gear attachment loops, and side, cross over and lower panel compression straps. Gregory also includes a raincover for full protection against the elements. An integrated sleeve and exit port make the Baltoro 75 hydration system (sold separately) compatible. That same sleeve can be removed entirely and, thanks to its integrated minimalist shoulder strap, it can be used as a lightweight daypack or summit pack!
The Gregory Baltoro 75 backpack is available in your choice of colors and Small (fits torso lengths ranging from 16”-18”), Medium (18”-20”) and Large (20”-22”) size options.

Dislikes: - None so far
- Great pack...... especialy for the $$
Likes: Built in day pack and rain cover. Great compartmentation!!!!!! I love that it isn't just top load. has hip pouches and one is waterproof. adjustability!
Dislikes: Could be just my body, but I'm not to impressed with the shoulder straps....It is slightly on the heavy side but that is a matter of perspective. Maybe I just need to get stronger.....
- heavy but reliable
Likes: this pack feels very reliable. the durability is reassuring. the ratings for comfort are satisfying. the small size is actually a 70, rather than a 75.
Dislikes: it is very heavy. the 65 is as adequate for lightweight and small camping equipment.
- Great Features
Likes: This bag is packed with features and is clearly very high quality. Of course, you get what you pay for.
Dislikes: The weight is a little heavier than I expected.
- Great pack at a great price.
Likes: The suspension system on this pack is excellent. No shoulder fatigue like my prior pack. Room for all your gear and then some with some other bells and whistles.
Dislikes: None so far.
- Still the one!!
Likes: It is the best backpack out there if you're looking for comfort and durability. A truly legendary piece of gear that you will own forever! You can dial in your fit easily with all the adjustment points as well as being able to purchase belt and harness's to suit your own situation. Plenty of room for a well planned through hike or long weekend. Grab one and get out there!
- Great Pack
Likes: excellent design. Lots of access points and places to strap things on the outside. Easy access to most compartments. Small removable day pack a great idea. Plus comes with rain cover that works perfect.
Dislikes: belt hip pockets too small for a phone. Should be removable so you could add your own Velcro attachments. Had to buy a separate phone holder to attach to pack.
- very good!
Likes: This backpack is extremely high quality, it is very good at balancing the weight for long periods of time, I also really enjoy the quick access water bottle, holder. I plan to take this on a 21-day backpacking journey and I can't wait to use it, I was on an extremely tight budget and the current deal really helped me out!!!
Dislikes: I wish the waterproof pocket was larger so it could fit larger things like my wallet or phone.
- I like it
Likes: This thing has everything I was looking for.
Dislikes: None yet.
