how much weight can the baltor 75 carry?
The Gregory Baltoro 75 can carry a maximum of 50 pounds, however it most comfortable on long hikes (greater than 5 miles) if the weight is limited to 40 pounds or less.
The Gregory website has specs on all the packs. While you might be able to physically carry more than the specified 50 lb limit for this pack, it isn't designed to allow you to *comfortably* carry more than 50 lbs. If you want to carry more weight than that, look for a bigger pack.
I'm 120 pounds and I've carried 60 pounds in the pack with no problem. I absolutely love this pack! It is so comfortable and fits me well. We hiked 6 miles with that weight and although I was a little tired by the end, I felt balanced throughout. Good luck!
The Baltoro 75 is a great backpack . It is recommended to about 55 LBS carry weight. I push my gear to the limit . I carried 75 LBS no problem on a 15 Mile Hike. I smashed down hard about 3 times on steep Ice almost broke my arm but the Baltoro held up great. I was amazed this pack held up to the abuse I put it thru . Gregory will also switch out shoulder harness straps and waist belt for more of a custom fit for free . Bottom line you can't go wrong with the Baltoro 75. SunnySports Had the cheapest price and fast shipping. I will buy more gear from them in the future .
I've had mine with almost 50 pounds don't know what capacity is but it did it well to 12000 feet. Working on lighting my load but is a great pack. Apittle on the heavy side but tough as nails. My next pack will be lighter but for a tank it's compfortable as anything out there .
The typical packer weight is 40lbs or so and the Baltoro 75 can easily handle twice this amount... but your back may not!!!
I've had mine loaded up to 60 lbs for training purposes and the pack had no problems.
