Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Gregory Jade 38 Pack - Women's

(1/2)

I could hardly even feel it on my back (i.e. zero of that awful shoulder pulling) and it was so easy to adjust all of the straps for a perfect fit! The hip straps are soft, comfy, and flexible which made it easy to take on/off while on the trail. AND the hip pockets fit my galaxy s9 with case! The mesh back allows for airflow to keep you cool and have a comfy, happy back all day long

Hiking

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/1)

I also purchased a Capture Clip from Peak Designs which allows you to fix the camera to the shoulder strap in place while hiking – a great addition to this pack.

Gregory Jade 38 Pack - Women's

(1/2)

I love the size for those who like to bring a few extra comforts on a long day hike. There was plenty of room for my "wardrobe" of jackets, gloves, hats, rainpants, etc! Packed tons of clothes, snacks, 3 L water bladder, first aid kit, and all of the essentials with room to spare. Yet somehow it didn't feel big or bulky at all!! I am really impressed.

Compartment

Gregory Jade 38 Pack - Women's

(1/1)

Right under the top of bag under the Gregory logo is another zipper to get inside the large compartment from the front of the bag like a suitcase nice feature if you have something in the bottom of the bag you want out first. The zippered compartment in the front of the bag works great for stashing a rain jacket or insulating jacket or whatever you need quickly. Just under the front compartment is a small zippered area with rain drops, it's your free rain cover!! Which is also red and it's not attached to the pack, it's completely separate, what a GREAT item to include! There are two mesh pocket on either side, and like other review stated the compression straps are in the way to use them without sacrificing use of water bottles or not being able to compress pack down. There are no access holes to feed strap behind item in pockets, I just leave them loose, not really a deal breaker for me

Carry-on

Gregory Jade 38 Pack - Women's

(1/1)

Great pack. It’s comfortable, roomy, and I love the sunglasses holder in the strap. I do wish there were more pockets on the inside for organization but I remedy that by using small pouches to keep the small things together. I have a long torso and the hips belts fit right where they should

Size

Gregory Jade 38 Pack - Women's

(1/2)

Due to having an extra small back, I have a hard time finding backpacks that fit me right. Gregory is the only brand I’ve found that fits my back that doesn’t dig into my wide hips.
