Striking a balance between weight and durability, the high-performance Gregory Women’s Jade 53 internal frame backpack employs lightweight, high-tenacity fabrics and an innovative, streamlined suspension system to provide load-carrying capability without the bulk and burden of a full-blown expedition pack.
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 Women’s Jade 53 harness and CrossFlo DTS suspension system. A lightweight wire X-Frame and a suspended mesh backpanel work in tandem to support the stability of the Jade 53 by distributing weight evenly and transferring the load to the lumbar pad and waist belt. Die-cut EVA 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 Jade 53 and ensure the stability of your load, allowing convenient on-the-go adjustment.
The single main compartment of the Jade 53 has an extendible drawstring-closed top entry, and a U-shape zippered entry allows full front access to the pack body. A large front stuff pocket provides a place to secure additional gear. The Jade 53's lid includes an integrated stowaway pocket. All of the zippers used on the Jade 53 are designed to be weather resistant.
The Women’s Jade 53 also includes side and bottom compression straps, bottom sleeping bag access panel, quick-access waistbelt pockets, two exterior stretch water bottle pockets and hideaway gear loops. An integrated sleeve and exit port make the Women’s Jade 53 compatible with a hydration system (sold separately). A color-matched rain cover is also integrated.
Available in your choice of color options, the Gregory Women’s Jade 53 backpack is available in X-Small, Small, and Medium size options.

Real Customer Reviews
- AMAZING pack for the price
Likes: This pack is amazing. I was looking for a cheaper backpack that would still be study and hold enough stuff. I took it to New Zealand for a backpacking trip and it was fantastic. Love all the compartments, it's very comfortable and breathable while I'm wearing it on my back, the daypack is awesome, and the rain cover worked great when we had an unexpected storm on the trail. I didn't even know it has an optional sleeping bag divider until after I was home, but that's a great feature too. Color (grey) is really cute. The size (53L) is perfect for a light backpacking/camping trip. It even has sleeping pad straps underneath. Overall I love this pack!
Dislikes: The color choices for the daypack (bright teal) and rain cover (bright pink) are a little off putting but you get used to them.
- Very nice pack
Likes: Removable daypack
Dislikes: Not adjustable
