Great All Around Pack
This backpack is great for both the outdoors and the mountains. It has great side and top entry points. This is the best pack I have ever owned.

I have been looking for a new day pack for a while, I really loved my last one, but it is finally wearing out. I wanted a do anything pack and this Gregory Kalmia is about as close as you will probably get. I had a Gregory treking pack already and as well with this one, the quality of craftsmenship seems first class. My only compaints are that it fits a little bit short for my torso, and I do not have a particularly long torso. Also, when my water blatter is full, it makes for an uncomfortable bulge on my back, as if the pack needs some sort of stiffer back rest. That would probably increase weight a bit though, and this thing is really light to it's advantage. Once I drink a bit, the buldge goes away though. Have only had it out once so far, so can't comment on durabilty, I'm sure that it will do great. Plenty of room for a day hike, but I am not sure if I can fit a days climbing gear in it. Haven't tried yet. Looking forward to the next trip out!
