The Paragon and Maven feature an innovative hybrid suspension system that cleverly combines a free floating lower back system with a breathable on-the-back upper back padding system. This unique approach captures the best of both worlds - a super comfy lower back Comfort Cradle system with Gregory’s Patent Pending FreeFloat hipbelt tech and a close fitting upper backpanel that saves energy by keeping the bulk of the pack weight close against your back. With a fully loaded but lightweight focused feature set, including full length side-loading access, the Paragon and Maven will make your next few days on the trail a dream come true.
