Serrac 45 Backpack

Comparing these to the big Gregory Serrac 45 would be to compare grapefruit and grapes. I’m partial to the kitchen-sink style of daypacking, so the Serrac suits that need wonderfully. It has a very good-fitting waist-belt and it, too, rides smooth and firm, which, at the end of a 16-hour walk, is appreciated. The Serrac 45 is available in small, medium, and large—2624, 2746, or 2868 cubic inches—I tested and loved the big one. Available at Wholesale Sports. $160; gregorypacks.com.
