GREGORY, the backpack expert, is bringing to market the next generation of its award-winning Targhee pack for winter 2019.
The new Targhee snowsports pack comes in three volumes – 45, 32 and 26 liters – and is both lighter and stronger than its predecessor.
The 1000D Cordura front panel makes it two times more abrasion resistant than comparable backpacks*. Naturally, it has attachment options to accommodate all types of ice tools, skis, snowboards and snowshoes. The suspension system combines high vertical stability with full freedom of movement for improved
performance and a special quick-access avalanche safety pocket.
For winter backcountry days, skiers, snowboarders ski tourers need equipment they can trust in and rely on. This is why the Targhee series is being continually refined. By working in partnership with top mountain athletes, incorporating feedback from users and devoting countless hours to real world field-testing in demanding locations, GREGORY has optimized the new generation of Targhees for the 2019/2020 winter season. It offers improved materials, enhanced designs and a lighter carry for modern mountaineering and alpine adventures.
Made with 1000D Cordura, the front panel is built for bombproof durability and will easily withstand sharp ski edges or ice tools. The anodised aluminium buckles are easy to use when gloved up and have a camming action for a reliable hold. Entry to the main compartment is via the Ushaped zipper on the back, which flaps open fully for easy access to the inside. As only the front panel of the pack lies in the snow, the back panel is kept dry. And thanks to the snowshedding backpanel design, the VertFlex suspension on the Targhee prevents snow adhering and getting wet. The padding itself is 3D-thermoformed to mould snugly to the back and hips. For an ultra-stable carry and high vertical stability, there is an aluminium perimeter frame. Nevertheless, the suspension system still offers good torsional flexibility for dynamic movement during skiing, riding or sections of climbing.
The fast access avalanche safety pocket keeps everything organised and in place. Special, quick and easy attachment options allow diagonal front ski
carry, front snowboard and snowshoe carry or A-frame ski and splitboard carry with heavy duty bottom loops. Gregory continues to rely on its triedand-
tested internal hydration sleeve, which is routed through the insulated shoulder strap to prevent it from freezing. A top zippered pocket accommodates goggles and other important accessories and the dual layered reinforced base provides added durability and has full perimeter compression to keep the pack streamlined.
The packs are available in the colours atlantis blue and sunset orange and three different back lengths (except the 26 l version).
