"We heard from a lot of people that they wanted a pack that could tackle the trail as well as travel," says Gregory's lead All Mountain series Designer, Mark Thibadeau. "We designed the new All Mountain SavantT and SageT series packs to be versatile enough for use in the backcountry with the ability to travel across Europe equally as well."
Gregory's new All Mountain line includes the SavantT 58 and women's specific SageT 55 (MSRP $199), SavantT 48 and women's specific SageT 45 (MSRP $179), and the SavantT 38 and women's specific SageT 35 (MSRP $159). All numbers refer to the specific liter size of the backpack.
The new Intuition 3D suspension, developed specifically for the SavantT and SageT, provides incredible comfort in load carrying by utilizing a cross ridged back-panel with moisture-wicking mesh and a lightweight but sturdy wire wishbone frame. All of the new packs feature integrated rain covers, sidestash quick access pockets perfect for a headlamp or passport, front access zippers, water resistant roll top style lids, external hydration access, and side and bottom compression.
Gregory showed the S12 pack line to retailer at the summer Outdoor Retailer show that took place August 4th through August 7th in Salt Lake City, Utah.
