The Gregory Z 75 Pack is a bigger and better pack by Gregory. The JetStream LTS suspension in the bag makes carrying load much easier. This ventilated backpack can be adjusted according to your need to fit you perfectly. It has lots of pockets at front, side which are all zippered. The front pocket has been redesigned to fit more stuff and has a half moon zipper. It has a beefy EVA harness for more comfort on the shoulders. The bag can be compressed from side, top and bottom to make it smaller. A multitude of other pockets allow you to keep smaller items separately. Thru-hikes, lightweight three-day weekend, or trips to the crag are just a few places you'll enjoy wearing this updated classic. The Gregory Z 75 Pack has managed to balance substantial load carrying with their Jetstream suspension offering True Ventilation Innovation and trend setting at its finest.

I just spent a couple hours with this pack and it may be their best pack design yet.
Things I noticed:
1. The thicker belt and shoulder straps are great and should be on all of the zpacks.
2. The bigger front pocket with half moon zipper is great! This also should be on all of the zpacks. The vertical zippered pockets on all the other models just do not work as well.
3. I have owned a lot of packs that have front access and this pack (finally) does it right. If you look close at the picture you notice that the whole front can be opened with only two buckles to unclip. Its really easier and quicker to open the front than open the top.
Only one bad thing to say about this pack- its too big. If this was a 55L pack, I would love to own one. If they take the new belts, shoulder straps, front half moon pocket, and front access and patch it on the z55. That will be one great pack.
I have the original version of the Gregory Z pack and needed a larger version. The Z 75 fit the bill. It has plenty of room for a 4 day mountaineering trip. It carried everything that I needed quite comfortably. The only thing that I would fix is the exterior side pockets. They are too small to carry anything significant. I usually like to keep Nalgene water bottles in the exterior side pockets of my pack and the Z 75 pockets would not support this plan. I was able to make up for this by using the hydration bladder setup and putting my Nalgene bottles inside the pack.
