This Gregory Whitney 95 review is about an internal-frame backpack which offers ultra durability and load support for the most challenging expeditions and extended backpacking tours. You will be able to comfortably carry loads of up to 70 lbs (31.7 kg).
- The best place regarding the price and shipping conditions is usually Amazon.com.
The pack features Gregory’s custom fit suspension (CFS). It contains dual aluminum stays bolstered by yet another supportive cross stay. You will be able to see the internal frame structure in the video below after 20 seconds.
The frame is lightweight but durable. The accompanying back panel is comfortable and with air circulation channel.
Two shoulder straps are pre-curved and made of dual-density foam. The waist strap is removable so that you can choose the size that fits you best. It has pockets on both sides to keep you organized.
The floating lid on the top compartment is removable and can be used as a lumbar pack, and it contains a zippered pocket. The top compartment ends with and expandable spindrift collar, giving you a lot of extra volume.
The main access to the top compartment is from the top, and from the front through a zippered opening. It can be accessed also through the bottom compartment. To do this you will unhook the divider between them.
Sizable pockets are on both sides of the pack and inside of the pockets you have mesh container and in addition, you have a zippered mesh which allows you additional access to the main compartment through both side pockets.
On the front of the pack you have a big zippered pocket, with an extra internal mesh pocket. Attachment points for trekking poles, ice axe, and similar items are on both sides of the pack. Storage compartments on the sides can be unzipped and used for water bottles.
Whitney 95 is hydration compatible, and it has an integrated sleeve.
