TAKE IT OFF-TRAIL
Like a souped-up Jeep, the Triconi begs to be taken off-trail and over jumbly passes. The reason: The hipbelt and shoulder straps are built into the pack frame with auto-adjusting pivot points. It’s a smart system. The pivots adapt to individual hip curvature and shoulder/torso size, allowing the pack to stay centered on your back regardless of how you twist or contort your body. Don’t like all the movement? You can adjust the amount of pivot on the fly. And thanks to a host of other clever details, you can access all the most critical stuff on the fly, too. There’s a camera pocket on the waist belt and a bungee-corded water-bottle pocket that serves as a holster. 5.4 lbs, 3,661 cu in; gregorypacks.com
