    WITHDRAWN: Gregory Z55 Backpack

    Size: LARGE
    Color: Gold and grey.
    Condition: Like New / VERY lightly used.
    Comes with a Mystery Ranch Wet Rib (Sage Green)
    Price: $150

    I took it out on a couple of brief "backpacking trips" with my boys to show them how to set up a campsite. (Read that as I walked a little ways into a park a few times with my kids to set up the hammock, make hot chocolate, and eat lunch)

    This is a fantastic pack. I can't say enough nice things about it! Though I never carried it any real distance, I can say that from the perspective of a guy who has used a LOT of packs, this one is great. It is lightweight, solidly built, and carries loads extremely comfortably. It's a size I'd use for a good 3-5 day outing. I'd classify it as a top-loader. It does have some side access zippers (which I honestly doubt I'd ever use). A really nice feature about it is it has a gear beavertail with a zippered compartment where I"d store my snivel gear. If I didn't really use my BIG pack the vast majority of the time (Mystery Ranch Grizzly), I'd be keeping this one. It's that nice. My only complaint about it is the lack of water bottle side sleeves. Anyway, I solved that issue with a Mystery Ranch Wet Rib.

    I think it really makes the whole package complete so I'm sending it along with the pack. It's pretty slick the Z55 does have a water bladder sleeve in the main compartment with hose routing ports if you choose to use camelbacks or Source bladders.

    The only reason I'm selling my Z55 with Wet Rib in the first place is because my two sons just joined a very active Cub Scout den and it's time to get them their first real backpacks of their own. So... I'm looking to defray the cost a bit. If I can get about $150 for it it would really help. I'll post pictures as soon as I find the charger for my camera battery.

    Not trying to cause a rukus or anything, but would you be open to selling the wet rib separately?

    If so, I'll take it (the wet rib that is and pending price questions, of course)

    Hi WRR... I'd be more comfortable selling the two items together. I like the idea of providing the water bottle option with the pack. Jump on over to the Mystery ranch website. Wet Ribs are only about $36. They really are great. I understand Dana Design used to make them (He now owns Mystery Ranch) and now they are back by popular demand. I ordered mine on a lark and found that it was a well thought out piece of gear. I'll definitely get another one for my MR Sweet Pea.

    Long-winded answer. Thanks for asking though!

    Will the wet ribs fit on work on any pack?

    Hi Musselman1234;

    Not sure... The buckles accommodate 1" webbing straps according to my measurements. This is how I have mine mounted:

    Attached to RIGHT shoulder strap:

    Oh and this is attached to my Z55, not on one of my MR packs

    Great Pack

    If this were a Z65 I would be ALL over it. I love Gregory packs, so I heartily endorse this for someone looking for a pack.

    If it was a medium, I would have bought this for my Pops. I am spoiled by my z55. It is my go to pack for sure.
