Gregory Savant 58 Pack Features.

Gregory Savant 58 Pack.
The largest pack in the All Mountain pack line is the Gregory Savant 58 Pack. It is ideal for extended trips when you need to carry a little more. It features a large, horseshoe shaped zipper access to the main pack body that really stands out. It comes with two large, zippered hip-belt pockets that provide excellent storage. The large roll top style lid comes with a seam-taped zipper. This combination provided great waterproof storage for a variety of items. The pack also comes with a side stash, zippered quick access pocket that is located behind the water bottle pocket on the right side of the pack. The Savant 58 incorporates 10 mm. breathable EVA foam in the hip-belt, which works well and provides good comfort. The hip belt is easy to adjust, adding to the comfort of this pack. The pack uses breathable, molded foam on the back panel and shoulder straps, all of which proved to be comfortable and easy to adjust. The Gregory Savant 58 Pack is a great companion to take backpacking, climbing, or travelling around the world.

My first pack...not too bad!!

Took this pack out for my first backpacking trip last week. Went to Pike National Forest. The Gregory Savant 58 (I have the large 62L pack) was not my first choice in backpacks but after trying a bunch on, this is what I picked and I was not let down. The sales associate at the REI Denver store was extremely helpful in fitting me this pack and making sure with my body size that this pack would work. Keep in mind I don't have anything to compare it to as far as previous experience.

For it being my first time ever backpacking, I didn't buy anything super light like I see a lot of people doing. With food and water, my total pack weight was 40lbs and I barely felt it.

The pack has durable fabric. The suspension system is great and made for comfortable hike. The hip belt pockets are kinda small but they held my camera and my iPhone without any issues.

The one thing I wish was a little better would be the straps on the bottom expand more to hold things like the sleeping pad. I had mine attached to the outside of the bag with extra straps. It wasn't an issue at all. But seemed like the included rain cover wouldn't be able to cover the entire bag that way. Didn't have a rain issue though to test it out.

Overall, I was impressed with my first one.

Perfect Pack (for my needs, at least)

This pack serves my needs perfectly. As a climber who looks to camp around the crag, I needed a pack that could haul camping and climbing gear, plus all the other essentials.

I recently spent a week in Southern California (Joshua Tree & San Diego), and I needed a pack to carry my gear and fly coast-to-coast with. The sales person at REI suggested this, and he was spot on.

There's a ton of space in the pack, and with smart packing, I was able to fit all of my stuff. The top-loading is great, but the ability to open almost like a duffel was truly wonderful. The hood was quite large, and I was able to store quite a bit in there.

The pack was very comfortable, even when loaded to the absolute max. Granted, I did not do all that much trekking with it, but I'm confident that it would have performed great in those situations as well.

I was between several packs, including the REI Pinnacle 50 and the North Face Terra 65, and I'm very pleased with my choice. I only wish that I hadn't left a ClifBar in the side mesh pouch on the first day at JTree...those squirrels get hungry, and mesh isn't a great barrier to stop their chewing...

Great Pack

I bought this pack with birthday money. It was intended to be my first "really good" backpack, as the one I had been using was a cheapy. I tried out several, and really had it narrowed down to this one and the Osprey Atmos 65. I liked them both equally in the store, and since the Gregory was $40 less, I went for it. Unfortunately, when I got it home and tried to load up a typical "winter pack" for 2-3 days of hiking, it was too tight on space. I would have had too many things hanging off the back of the pack, and I'm not a fan of that. My typical pack for winter includes the following: SlumberJack 15 deg. synthetic sleeping bag in a compression sack; slumberjack 3/4 length self inflating 1" foam/air mattress; eureka zeus 2 EXO tent and poles; Columbia omni-heat insulating upper; Columbia omni-shield weather upper; MSR 4L dromedary; sweetwater filter; optimus crux cooking system; and then add on for food, water and miscellaneous things like flashlight, para cord, etc.
In the end, I returned the pack and opted for the Osprey, which works great for me.

Great all-purpose pack.

Took this pack on a 5 day trip in the Appalachians this summer and loved it. I got this to replace my aging (and heavy!) Gregory pack for longer trips, and those of you who are fans of Gregory but are looking for a lighter pack should try this one out. Carried about 30lbs of gear with great stability, including when scrambling. This pack is a good happy medium for me as I was looking for a reasonably light pack that had decent suspension for 30-40lb loads. The only caveat I have found is that you do have to conscientiously pack it correctly (heavy items in the middle closest to your back), or the comfort does suffer as I found one day when I was careless in the morning. The pack was roomy enough to fit tent, sleeping bag, 5 days of food and summer clothing with room to spare for me, and I don't foresee having any problems using it with bulkier winter clothes (though only relatively mild southeast winter clothes). This is definitely my new go-to pack.

my perfect pack

I bought this pack in anticipation of next year's AT thru-hike; my old pack was way too big and heavy. The Savant 58 wasn't the lightest pack I tried, but it was the one that best fit what the REI associate called my "weird body shape" (wide shoulders, shallow torso, lots of bones). It's only been on one trip with me since then, but I LOVE this pack. It gives me good organization, it rides comfortably, and once I put it on, a couple tugs on the load-lifting straps and I can barely tell it's there.

It didn't rub my shoulders, it didn't chafe my hips, and it was comfortable on my back. I wish it was a little easier to get to the water bottles I keep in the side pockets, but I found that I could still reach them if I took one arm out of the shoulder straps. I will use this pack until it self-destructs from extreme old age.

solid A

well thought out pack holds 80% of what i can stuff in a baltoro 75 with half the pack weight. new top pocket seems bigger than baltoro 75 and has water proofish looking fold down zipper. hydration sleeve is internal but has external access via lifting top pocket. holds my 100oz uni bottle no problem and takes up less room in pack also like outside top stuff no zipper pocket. although not made for it a gatorade bottle can be jammed in side stash pocket good enough to hold it. built in rain cover is a great added value and disapears back in vented pocket with out any special folding. large side belt pocket holds a smartphone plus a couple granola bars wow gave 4 stars because its new and dont know about durability but i realy like this pack the only thing missing is outside compresion bungee witch it has loops for. holds 30 pounds nicley

A Pack That Won't Disappoint!

A very well designed pack. The waterproof zipper in combination with the roll top brain makes for a reliable compartment for anything you want to keep dry. The no zip outer stuff pocket makes for easy access to a rain jacket or second layer. The horseshoe shaped zipper makes the bag very open and easy to pack and/or unpack. Also, the "one pull to open, one pull to close" draw cord on top of the pack is a very convenient way to open the bag especially with cold fingers.

This pack can fit a lot inside of it and has quite a few attachment points on the outside of the bag as well. So if you're looking for a pack that is large but not too large, pretty lightweight and comfortable, this pack is for you. You won't be disappointed!

great bag

This is a really great bag. Comfortable and BIG, but also can compress down to a really small size, so you have lots of options. Not a whole lot of easily accessable compartments. And the one on the front doesn't close fully, so when you do unzip the front flap to get to things on the bottom of the pack, you end up dumping things out. But still would buy it again, best bag this size I've seen.

Good Long Distance Pack

I just hiked 210 miles of the John Muir Trail with this pack. A Garcia bear canister with 10 days of food fit in horizontally about mid-pack and could not be felt through the back panel. Integrated rain cover was used frequently. Katadyn water bottle (slightly narrower than 1L) was reachable from the mesh pockets. The pack is very sturdy for the weight.

Fantastic pack

I carry a fair amount of camera gear on my day hikes, and this pack is absolutely perfect for my needs. Plenty of space. Love the horseshoe zipper that allows easy access to main compartment. Roll top lid with waterproof fabric is a nice, practical touch. Looking forward to what I hope are many, many years enjoying this pack!

Negative Reviews:

Super Small

This pack is extremely small and can only be recommended as a 1-2 day pack at best, unless you are an ultralight backpacker. Upon receiving the pack, I was surprised at just how small it actually was. I would say that it is just a hair bigger than a normal school backpack. For the price, I think that you can do much better going with a larger pack.
