COMPETITION: WINNERS - Win 1 of 2 New Gregory Optic Or Octal Ultralight Backpacking Pack

WINNERS: vpeake, kajka91

, 47 kb
New From Gregory for 2018 is their ultralight backpacking range, male and female packs in a range of sizes - the ultralight backpacker's dream.

In our opinion, an ultralight pack that shaves grams at the cost of comfort, longevity, or your entire gear budget is a poor investment. So we designed the men's Optic and women's Octal to meet ultralight weight standards without sacrificing fit, function, or our reputation for reliable bags that last a lifetime.

Both packs feature AeroSpan, the ultralight evolution of our groundbreaking VaporSpan suspension. It's delivering the same combination of 360-degree moisturewicking ventilation and tensioned perimeter frame load management while paying obsessive attention to weight reduction. Using body-mapping techniques to target friction and impact points allows us to eliminate hotspots without excess padding. FocusForm shoulder harness and hipbelts and LifeSpan foam provides lightweight comfort that outlasts other weight-conscious cushioning materials.

Aerospan, 148 kb

At an impressive stripped weight of 1.08/1.01 kg for the 48L/45L and 1.10/1.02 kg for the 58L/55L offerings, the Optic and Octal express our dedication to pushing the envelope of design while delivering the level of quality and value synonymous with Gregory.

2 winners can choose their preferred pack from the Optic 58, Optic 48, Octal 55 and Octal 45.
