The new Paragon backpacks have been completely revised. The FreeFloat Hybrid carrying system combines the advantages of a mesh back with those of a contact back. It thus ensures wonderful wearing comfort with good load control - even when fully loaded. This gives the best of both worlds to provide the best possible wearing comfort. When designing the rucksacks, attention was paid to keeping the weight as low as possible in order to have an additional advantage, especially on multi-day tours. The Paragon was rounded off with practical features such as a practical zipper that extends over the entire side and gives access to the main compartment. So you are perfectly equipped for your next multi-day tour.
A backpack with lots of features packed into a lightweight and breathable carrying system - that's the Paragon 68. It offers enough volume for tours lasting several days and the dynamic FreeFloat carrying system makes for great comfort and a lot of fun, especially on long trips. So you still have enough energy at the end of the day!
3D foam back panel
Two-layer, perforated foams provide the perfect balance of support and comfort.
The lightweight alloy perimeter frame, in combination with the fibreglass cross brace, keeps the weight close to your back and the FreeFloat suspension is well connected.
Adjustable 3D comfort weighing belt
A development of Gregory's PreCurve 3D hip belt found on the award-winning Baltoro and Deva packs, the Paragon hip belt and Maven use 3D foam construction for body-hugging comfort without a hot spot. By integrating the hip belt directly into the suspended lumbar support in the lower back, we are able to create an ultra-soft, ventilated comfort cradle that wraps around the lower back and adjusts to the hips for a perfect fit.
Men's & Women's Geometry
True to Gregory's commitment to gender-specific design, the Paragon and Maven offer custom shoulder straps for
women and men. The angle and shape of the 3D comfort cradle also has a gender-specific design to maximise comfort and provide even pressure around your hips.
The new Free Float system integrates the adjustable torso length into its tensioned, open rear panels. It's a revolutionary approach to a ventilated carrying system, and Gregory could have stopped there - but they didn't. Proprietary Free Float Flex panels allow the hip belt to rotate and flex with the natural movements of your body. This creates a floating feeling on the trail and allows the hip belt to be placed gently and comfortably around the lower back and hips.
