Gregory Mens Zulu 45 Hiking Backpack Updated
Big enough for an overnight, light enough for a day hike, the Gregory Updated Zulu 45 uses a dynamic FreeFloat suspension, providing comfort in all environments. With an athletic look, full adjustability, and refined materials, we straddled the line between a daypack and overnighter. The Gregory Zulu and Gregory Jade are the perfect Family of Ventilated Hiking Packs for the day or a few days down the trail.
- Open-Air, Precise Fit Backpanel: Tensioned mesh creates an open space between your back and the pack to maximize ventilation, and the adjustable torso length provides a custom fit, providing maximum comfort.
