Gregory Mountain Products Men's Baltoro 85

The Gregory Baltoro is an ideal men's go bag. It comes in a variety of sizes (measured in liters), but for the use of a go bag, we prefer the 85, which is big. But exterior straps can be used to cinch everything down. It is VERY comfortable with a full load, and has lots of pockets and access points to get to your gear when you need it.

  • WHERE TO BUY

  • THE ESSENTIALS

    Importance: Crucial. You need an able go bag.

     

    Bottom line: This is a stellar bag in so many ways. Hiking or traveling, it allows a variety of gear to be carried easily, and has lots of access points to GET to that gear. For those same reasons, it makes a fabulous go bag. You need the type of bag you can carry and live out of for weeks on end, if necessary, and the Baltoro qualifies.

  • FIELD NOTES

    We've taken this bag to Mongolia and the Gobi desert; where it survived a massive desert storm, hundreds of hours in various vehicles being jostled and thrown; multiple multi-day hikes, and various other indignities. What we've found is that it holds its shape due to the tough internal aluminum frame. It has a small removable daypack that is actually useful; a rain cover; and a bunch of access points. Our only complaint is the side water container pockets, which swivel out of the way when not needed — but don't keep the bottles quite as secure as we might like.

  • OFTEN BOUGHT WITH

    Women should look to the Baltoro's sister bag, the Gregory Maven 55 Liter. Same great points as the Baltoro, but the Maven is made to fit a female frame. And for children we like the Osprey Ace 38.
