Summary:
For all you smaller people out there, I highly recommend Gregory. As others have said, the suspension on this pack rocks. I especially like the adjustable cant feature. Bought this pack for winter hikes and snowshoeing but it's become my favorite all-around pack from hut trips to traveling in Europe. The compression straps are a bit long, but I've trimmed the offenders and added 3-bar loops to contain those I can't bring myself to cut. I agree with the comments that the mesh water bottle pockets are hard to access. Best feature is the fit--I'm 5'3" with narrow shoulders and this is one of the few packs that is comfortable.

Customer Service:
Never used, but store clerk was knowledgable about product fit.

Reviewed by: Doug Artman ,  Mountaineer , from Nevada

Summary:
Great pack. Packed for a technical climb on Mt. Rainier and it performed well. Suspension is excellent and carried well on technical ground. The mesh pockets are a bit tough to fit a water bottle back into when on your back but with a little practise I managed. My biggest complaint is that the top lid hold down straps are poorly located and need to move out from under the mesh pockets toward the front of the pack more. They always seemed to be under my side load when I tried to snap them to the lid. Its a real issue as it really wastes what is sometimes valuable time digging them back out.

Summary:
Awesome pack! I searched for a long time to find a simple, durable, comfortable pack that would accomodate long weekend trips as well as serve as a technical day pack. The Gravity is built with practical features like gear loops, a beaver tail, and a daisy chain. The mesh pockets are best used for storing PowerBar wrappers, but they're overshadowed by how well this pack fits and carries loads anyway. I've had mine loaded up to 50lbs with no issues. That see through window under the lid is actually pretty useful too. Nice job Gregory.

Customer Service:
Never had to use.

Reviewed by: steve peralta ,  Backpacker , from Huntington Beach, CA, USA

Summary:
This pack freaking rocks! I use it for all my 3 - 4 day trips to carry loads of 20 - 25 pounds. I am 6'2" tall and weigh 185 lbs. with a 19.5" torso. This pack clings to my back like it was glued on. Nothing shifts: this pack is one with my body. My one complaint is the way the compression strap goes over the mesh pocket. It functions fine, but is a little unwieldy. But then I'm nitpicking, aren't I? Bottom line: its pricy, but worth every penny.

Summary:
I agree with the above reviews. It's a versatile and durable pack for medium trips. However, I wouldn't recommend it for trips longer than 4 days.
