backpacking campingI’ve needed a new backpack for a while but there is one thing that keeps me holding on to my bright, orange, functional yet non-functional, over-sized backpack- It was my dad’s! He got it when he was 20 years old (I will not mention his age but let’s just say he resembles Steve Martin). I’m not sure where he got it but I know he used it well- none of the zippers are functioning and the bottom gives out. The only thing that does work is the flap where it ties down and the frame. I’ve spent many trips with this backpack and it has never led me down the wrong trail.

Now, after 2 years, it’s time to spread my camping wings and graduate to the next level- a functional backpacking backpack! I can not be more excited to use her this weekend! This Gregory pack is a 55 liter pack perfect for overnight adventures!

Features include:

  • molded foam back
  • harness and waist belt
  •  intuition 3D suspension
  • water-resistant roll top style top pocket
  • side stash, zippered quick access pocket
  • large panel zipper access to main pack of body

I’ve already got her packed up and ready to go! I’ll let you know how she treats me 🙂
