Show Description

Set off with high spirits and a light pack. The Paragon line is Gregory's lightest series of packs for backpacking and hiking. The 38 boasts moderate capacity for a lightly packed overnight trip. The suspension system keeps it stable enough for scrambling, and the pockets will help keep you organized.

  • Made of lightweight yet abrasion resistant 210-denier ripstop nylon.
  • Aerolon suspension uses an ultralight, hollow aluminum frame that is flexible yet supportive.
  • Matrix ventilated backpanel layers breathable mesh over die-cut foam for maximum air flow.
  • Adjustable shoulder harness lets you customize the pack to your torso length.
  • Contoured hipbelt and shoulder straps are padded with multi-density foam.
  • Access through top or bottom zippered compartment.
  • Floating lid and spindrift collar let you add extra gear.
  • Stretch shove-it pocket on front keeps a shell jacket accessible and isolated from the dry main compartment.
  • Twin waterbottle pockets at the side are low profile.
  • Hipbelt pockets can be repositioned independent of the hipbelt to maintain easy pocket access.
  • Zippered bottom sleeping bag compartment.
  • Bottom compression straps hold extra gear.
  • Shockcord and loops hold your trekking poles.
  • Integrated rain cover stows inside an external zip pocket, which doubles as an accessory pocket.
  • Maximum recommended cargo weight is 18kg.
