Baltoro 70 earns a stellar review from Outside Magazine’s Gear Army

Jeremy Goodman, one of Outside Magazine's ground troop bloggers, field-tested the Gregory Baltoro 70 on one of the ultimate backpacking journeys in the world: the rugged Andes Mountains of South America. For six months, the Baltoro clung comfortably to Jeremy's back while he lunged, scrambled, and hiked through the rain in muggy Columbia through to the harsh, unpredictable climate of Patagonia.

He thanks the Gregory gods for the Baltoro's water-and abrasion-resistant rip-stop nylon, 4,271 cubic inches of space, multiple access points, and, of course, the move-with-you-wherever-you-go suspension system.

We knew this pack was tough, but glad to hear someone else thinks so too. To see the full review click HERE.
