Weighing just 4 pounds while still delivering the fit and performance for which Gregory is renowned, the Contour 50 backpack is an excellent combination of load-hauling capability and intuitive access. The versatile pack is lightweight enough for quick overnights but has the capacity (3100+ cubic inches) for fast-and-light weekend trips.
Comprised of a lightweight, sturdy steel wire frame, an anti-barreling stay and a lightweight foam and mesh backpanel, the Contour 50’s Response LT suspension effectively transfers load to your hips and provides comfortable support. A moisture-wicking harnesses and waistbelt enhance fit, aid in load transfer and provide additional cushioning. Integrated air channels in the backpanel and waistbelt allow warm air to escape so you stay cooler while on the move. An adjustable sternum strap and load-lifter straps further enhance the fit of the Contour 50 and ensure the stability of your load while allowing convenient on-the-go adjustment.
The main compartment of the Contour 50 has top loading access and, in addition, a large, U-shaped front zipper enables you to quickly put hands on gear and or clothes without having to dump out the entire contents of your pack. The Contour 50 also includes side and bottom compression straps to ensure that the contents of the pack remain safely in place. A unique roll-top style top pocket on the Contour 50's highly water-resistant lid offers safe storage for valuables. A large front shove-it pocket is a handy place to store items that you may want quick access to on the trail. Zippered waistbelt pockets provide additional places to stow small items and side stretch mesh pockets are ideal for water bottles.
Other features found on the Contour 50 include dual ice axe/trekking pole attachment points, external hydration system (sold separately) access and an integrated raincover.
