It’s All In The DesignIn 1977, Wayne Gregory gained the necessary skills as a freelance designer to create his own company. His expertise in the industry allowed him to innovate some of the best backpacks we have available to this day. He engineered a first-of-its-kind suspension system, tailored the fit of his packs to accommodate both men and women, invented new materials and designed new ways to construct these backpacks.
Over the years, this relentless spirit is what brought the company great success. Gregory is now known as a leading company in the outdoor industry and has inspired countless others to join in on... the adventure. Choose Gregory’s award-winning collection of backpacks and accessories for your next outing.

Construction Of A Good PackWhat makes a good pack? Is it the cordura fabric? The reinforced bottom panels? Or, nylon mesh pockets? We’d like to say all of those things but in reality these features, along with many others, need to be made the right way and are only a fraction of what makes a product good. At Gregory, they put a lot of focus on sustainability in their products and fairness in the workplace.
This approach has provided the company with many milestones in 2021: carbon footprint reduction by 28%, reduced smog production by 21%, and water pollution has gone down by 18% to name only a few. The brand intends to run the entire company based on the LCA process by 2025 so that every nook and cranny is accounted for without sacrificing quality.
Many of Gregory’s pack components have already been converted to earth-friendly alternatives like bluesign® approved plastic hardware. A perfect example of a friendly backpack is the Resin Daypack, developed with 98% recycled materials which reduced their carbon footprint by 59%.
