The Gregory Z35 is a great pack weighing 1340g that’s extremely comfy on the hill and offers great access to gear thanks to a wide, zip-round front opening. There are ice axe attachment points on the sides and stretch pockets for water bottles. But it’s not cheap compared to others with ventilated backs, and the very bendy back system restricts the way you can load gear.

The Gregory Z35 is a great, well-featured pack that’s very comfy, but it’s rather pricy and the back system won’t be to everyone’s liking.
