Striking a balance between weight and durability, the high-performance Gregory Zulu 65 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 Zulu 65's 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 Zulu 65 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 Zulu 65 and ensure the stability of your load, allowing convenient on-the-go adjustment.
The single main compartment of the Zulu 65 has an extendable 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 Zulu 65's lid includes an integrated stowaway pocket. All of the zippers used on the Zulu 65 are designed to be weather resistant.
The Zulu 65 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 Zulu 65 compatible with a hydration system (sold separately). A color-matched rain cover is also integrated.
Available in your choice of color options, the Gregory Zulu 65 backpack is available in Small, Medium, and Large size options.
