Gregory Zulu 40

Got this because of the four day Cuidad Perdido (Lost City) trek in Colombia.  It will be hot and humid.  I needed a pack that would keep the gear off my back.  The mesh back does the job.  I also needed a hip belt because of my shoulder surgery.  This was on clearance, so it fit the bill.

It’s quite light by my standards and easily big enough for the trip.

So this jacket is sized rather strangely.  It’s arm length is good, but it’s even tighter than the Nano-Air around the gut.  It’s an XL, but every other XL I own is far larger.  If this wasn’t 75% off, I would return it.  I’ll just see if I can lose a few pounds to fit in it better.
