A generous size that is highly adjustable so you can get the perfect fit that's comfortable for you. Gregory packs are really well designed, high quality, all round backpacks with loads of features for the weight.

Gregory says:

Nine times out of ten, a pack this light with this kind of capacity would be stripped of anything close to comfort or convenience. The Paragon 68 is the exception, tearing up the trail with lightweight, ventilated ease thanks to Aerolon suspension, and offering deluxe features you’d be hard-pressed to find inside its weight class. Looks like your long weekend plans just got a little lighter and a lot more comfortable.

Gregory's Paragon 68 Backpack is perfect for those looking to prioritise comfort over weight. It's well designed, well made and it works. The 68 version is the larger in the Paragon series aimed at multiday trips with enough extra pockets and points to lash on any extras you might want to pack.

This is a top loading pack with a double zip to access a simple internal sleeping bag compartment. All of the clips, equipment loops, straps and extras show the quality of this pack. There are easy to use pockets on the hip belt, two good pockets on the lid and stretchy foam pockets on the side and a large pouch on the front. These are perfect for stowing anything from drinks to wet items.

The foam padding in the shoulder straps and hip belt mean that even after a long day with a full pack the Paragon is still pretty comfortable. Both are adjustable meaning you can play about with them to get the best fit on you and this is well worth doing. This foam is also used as padding down the back and provides a great level of airflow which works well on those long ascents and on warmer days.

There are a few additional features with this pack that make it stand out from the crowd. One of them is the internal Sidekick pack which doubles as a hydration reservoir pouch or as a small ultralight daypack which is easily taken out with two simple toggles keeping it in place. The daypack weighs in at 124g and has adjustable shoulder straps, a zip pocket and has a draw cord to close it so it works well on it's own.
