I have tried SEVERAL of the well known brands of back packs as well as the "cheapos". I currently own three Gregory back packs, the Denali, Whitney, and the G Pack.
To make a long story short, I will NEVER buy any other brand of back pack again. I have had the Denali since March 3, 2003 (This is accurate because I just now looked at the receipt to be sure.)
I have used it and used it and used it. I have carried loads as light as 20 pounds up to as much as 75 pounds in the Denali. I no longer use the G Pack even for day hikes because the Denali carries more comfortably at 30 pounds than the G pack at 20 pounds.
There isn't a better back brace on the market ( my back isn't that good) than a Gregory Denali Pro back pack cinched up tight.
HINT: Don't feed a bear with it and you will NEVER need to buy another back pack.
I have owned a Gregory Denali since 1995. I purchased this pack because I needed a dependable load hauler for a 21 day expedition thru-hiking the North Cascades National Park, with just one resupply at Ross Lake. I loaded this bad boy down with 80 pounds of gear and supplies for two 11 day sections, and abused this pack through some of the toughest back county you will ever find. It performed marvelously. 16 years later, I am now section hiking the AT with my wife (much lighter loads), still using my trusty Denali. I will never own any other brand of pack. There are no visible defects of any kind after all these years... the stitching is still as good as new. Gregory totally rocks. I have an old North Face Snow Leopard that my wife is using... we are going to replace it with the new Gregory Deva 70. I'm sure it will be the last pack my wife will ever buy.
The Gregory Denali Pro is a an exceptionally well designed and durable back pack. If you are new to the sport, this back pack will be your #1 choice, if you are a seasoned pro, you already know this pack is the bomb. On the trail, this pack is a solid performer. The value is very reasonable for the additional price on such a superior quality back pack.
When you are 5 to 20 miles deep in the wilderness, this pack will be even more apprecieted as the comfort (provided you know how to pack a backpack correctly) is second to none. This is when you will know that the few extra dollars were worth every single penny.
Buy one, pack it correctly, and you will be hooked on this exceptional backpack for life. This pack is 100% the real deal for any serious outdoor lover!
As an Alaskan guide and outdoor enthusiast I have spent many months over the last 30 years with a heavy pack on my back. In my profession I'm definitely in the minority on the use of internal frame packs for extremely heavy bulky loads. I've walked thousands of mile, sometimes with up to 150+ pound load with this pack and can say with 100% certainty that no other pack I've worn can compare. I would recommend this pack to anyone who has a need for a tough pack that is used hard. I'm 6'5" and only about 215, so I had to get an extra large pack with a large waist belt. The combination works awesome. I have used this pack very hard since 2006 and will replace it with the same style when it wears out.
The price of this pack put me off for a really long time.... I mean, its just a pack right? After putting up with failures from other packs i finally had enough beers and enough credit to order this thing. I plan on sending a thank you note to Budweiser and PayPal. I loaded it up and I am serious, this thing is unbelievable. It truly is the best pack I have ever worn. The load is perfectly distributed. It took me 5 beers to order this pack and it is one of the only times when waking up with what I spent money on after having a few beers there were no regrets.
