Gregory Makalu Pro 70 Backpack -

The Gregory Makalu Pro 70 is a professional-grade pack for expedition climbing, designed to haul heavy loads while not being too heavy itself. Like its deluxe backpacking cousin, the Baltoro 70, the Makalu features a beefy 3D-pre-curved hipbelt and a significant lumbar pad to transfer 50-pound loads from your shoulders to your legs. The Makalu manages to weigh about nine ounces less than a comparably-sized Baltoro, however, as it is much simpler in terms of layout and organization; the main compartment of the pack is one big uninterrupted volume with a removable hydration sleeve, perfect for accomodating big cold-weather sleeping bags and other bulky expedition gear. There are no side or front pockets or alternative access points - it's just the essentials here. 

The materials used to construct the Makalu are very heavy duty; the body is 210 denier nylon with a ripstop pattern of Spectra threads for reinforcement. The bottom and back panel are made of a waterproof and abrasion-resistant vinyl. A Hypalon patch on the outside of the pack body provides a place to strap on your crampons. The webbing straps, buckles, and drawstrings used are all very simple and standardized, making it easier to find replacements and make repairs over the course of a long expedition. 
Finally, the shoulder straps are rather more advanced than those found on some other packs in this category, with two slots that allow two different attachment heights within each torso size, an Auto-Cant system that allows you to change how close together the straps are at the top, and Gregory's unique Velcro-based design that allows you to move the strap's padding inboard and outboard as you prefer.
The Bottom Line: A pack that's ready to take on the big mountains of the world.
