Gregory Baltoro 75 Pack.
The Gregory Baltoro 75 Pack delivers spacious volume and an updated suspension to help you go farther, faster and lighter in comfort. Gregory has equipped the Baltoro 75 with the high-performance Response Auto Fit Suspension (AFS) system. AFS distributes weight evenly, providing superior load stability, comfort and range of motion. Other features include a canted, hideaway water bottle holder, dual mesh hipbelt pockets, gear loops and side, cross over and lower panel compression straps. The award-winning Gregory Baltoro 75 Pack boasts a wealth of access points, an array of features and an innovative suspension system that combine to make this 4400+ cubic inch pack a backcountry workhorse.
"The Gregory Baltoro 75 Pack is my favorite pack. It has all the volume I need to carry enough gear for a week on the trail and some extra fun on top of that. The fit is great because it keeps the load centered over your hips and does not restrict your bodies natural swing while you move on the trail. The Baltoro has by far, the best carry system. Each wing of the hip belt floats independently from one another and the shoulder straps are free from the hip belt too,so as your weight shifts from side to side as you walk the load stays centered with your torso. It's a breeze to adjust and has yet to have any piece fail on it . The Baltoro is for sure a great bag to get."

I just got back from three days out carrying my gear and half my girlfriend's gear and I am very pleased with this pack. I am not an ultra-lighter, and I want a backpack that will handle heavier loads easily and sturdily, and the Baltoro is certainly that. It's so comfortable it does not feel that heavy.
My former pack was a Gregory Shasta, and I loved that thing. I'm tempted to choose "put it through the ringer" for this review because I used the Shasta for about 12 years and never had single problem until it disappeared during a recent move. So I took the opportunity to try on a few more packs and found that the Gregory still fit me best. From inspection, I'm confident that the Baltoro will hold up as well as the Shasta. And it's just as comfortable on me.
Two things I always wished for from the Shasta were pockets and front access to the main compartment. The Baltoro has these and I love them. I don't know about the articulated hipbelts yet. I can feel them swiveling, but I'm not sure this makes it any more comfortable.
One worry I had was I can feel the aluminum stay jutting in the back a little just above the lumbar support when the pack is fully loaded. The padding on back and lumbar support here isn't as generous as was on the Shasta, but though I could feel the stay there it never became uncomfortable. Maybe I can adjust it (haven't tried yet) and if not maybe after many more days of use it will bother me, but fine for now.
I am 6'2" and I like the fit of the large. I don't know my torso size, but I have longer legs. I wanted a medium hipbelt so I exchanged the large belt for a medium with Gregory, which they turned around in less than a week. Great customer service.
Bottom line: this is seriously a fine pack, and I'm happy that Gregorys fit me well.
