"I payed big bucks for the Gregory Whitney and now i know why...never had a problem with it yet. went out on a 3 day trip and a 5 day trip, the capacity of the pack was more than enough to hold all my food and gear. this is my first gregory pack and i will never use anything but a gregory again."

"There is a reason why Gregory is the best...this pack swallows everything you own and makes a load a lot lighter...if you never used one you wont understand"

"I am very pleased with my Gregory Whitney Pack. I got it a couple of years ago and have packed several hundered miles in it. It has great storage capacity, very good material, and very well built. It is extremely comfortable, well worth the price."

"This pack really is amazing and is probably gregory's best pack in the 2004-2005 line. The only pack that costs more money is the Denali but it isn't worth the extra money. It's value isn't as good, and it's weight is a whooping 8 pounds!! The extra room is not needed unless you plan to live out of your pack for 6 months to a year. The whitney already is a huge pack as is.

The pack is probably the most comfortable pack on the market today. It is an organizers dream and is very durable and holds a lot of gear proportionally and evenly.

The only complaint I have is the side packet dividers need improvment. They don't go all the way to the top and stuff from the main pack such as water bottles and fuel bottles slide into the pockets and then when you open the side pocket they will fall out especially if you have other gear in the side pocket already. The zipper mesh liner that divides the side pockets from the main pack need to be higher and cover the whole hole area.

Other then that it is a top of the line industry leading pack. Arguably the best pack on the market today!"

"I have about 130 miles logged with this pack and have 1 word for this pack...Awesome. Like the other reviews mentioned this pack will hold everything you need and more. I've carried loades of 55 lbs for miles in comfort. Organization is a snap with all the pockets and entry points. This pack is worth every cent."

"The Whitney is the Cadillac of backpacks. Carried a total of 14 days this summer with two 75lb plus days in the Mt Adams Wilderness Area. The only pain was in my feet. Organization is outstanding ... would like side pocket separator to extend to top. (see earlier comments). Convinced me to buy my son a Gregory as well."

"I used this pack to hike the John Muir Trail (211 miles over the Sierra Nevadas) last Summer. Great pack, the hip belt was sturdy enough to carry my consistent 7 or 8 day load of up to 65 pounds while making it feel like half the weight, it has an infinite number of zippers and pockets for access. I haven't yet seen a pack that compares."

"My Whitney is the reason I hike without fear of getting hurt. It is well balanced and made for slight adjustments while hiking - I don't have to stop to bring it in, closer to my body. This pack synergizes with my spinal cord, not moving much at all.

I have just started taking advantage of the hydration-ready right side pocket (when looking at the rear of the pack). I can easily fit the Camelbak 3L reservoir in the mesh pocket, feeding the drinking tubing through the provided corner slot. Mouthpiece easily fits through D-ring for a now complete hydro-pack.

The sleeping bag compartment is ample. The adjacent exterior bottom of the pack has been reinforced for sliding down those all too familiar steep, wet rock faces indigenous to the Adirondack High Peaks of NY.

There is plenty of places to lash on, compress, and outfit the pack with exterior fixtures. This has also gotta be the most accessible pack. Side(s), top, and rear-loading makes for never losing an important item or having to unpack your entire pack for an extra layer.

All-in-all, this pack is the cumulation of convenience and comfort. It carries an amazing amount of gear while never feeling too loose or heavy.

Point: I hiked a trail where I did almost 3,000 vertical feet in a little more than a mile. The trail was mostly sheer bedrock and had been soaked from a morning shower. Coupled with my Asolo boots (w/ Vibram grip) and the perfect balancing of this pack, I was able to hump over 65 lbs to my destination... And I never slipped once."
