    I used this for two 5 day trips into the adirondacks. I loaded my pack upwards of 70lbs. My only wish is it had a few more external pockets.

    Comments about Gregory Palisade 80 Internal Frame Pack:

    The pack is comfortable and easy to adjust. It replaces a decades-old external frame pack that had served me well but was past its time. The Palisade 80 makes it easy to carry a large load with comfort.

    My only real complaint is that little pockets provided on the hip belt are too little. If they were a little larger then one could put a real snack in them.

        I've used this backpack for 10 years and it's accompanied me on 4 trips up the steep slopes of Mt Shasta and while hiking in the wildernesses of Arizona. The Palisade is easy to load and unload, gives me ample places to store varieties of gear, and is very comfortable. It's always whatever size I need it to be. It is very balanced while climbing up steep slopes and it is rugged enough for glissading down those slopes while on the descent. I definitely recommend it for other climbers and hikers.

          Comments about Gregory Palisade 80 Internal Frame Pack:

          Bought this pack to replace a 25 year old Northface that in hindsight never fit that well.
          I've tested it once thus far, using it to carry about 60 lbs for two days. The comfort difference was amazing to me. I felt no fatigue in my traps at all, and the pack sat very well on my hips. It did feel at times as if it were swaying up near my shoulders, but I suspect this can be adjusted away.

          I was a little worried about some older reviews noting failure of the hip belt. I talked to a number of folks at REI, EMS, ... and even contacted Gregory. All assured me the problem had been solved and even suggested a simple means of testing for the problem right away. As noted above, thus far I've had no problems at all with the pack.

            The pack was amazing. It was a new pack so it did take a bit to get totally adjusted but when I did it just got more comfortable each time I found a new adjustment. So just keep pulling and testing all of the optional staps and adjustment. You will notice the difference.

              Comments about Gregory Palisade 80 Internal Frame Pack:

              I live next to the Great Smoky mountains National Park and i get out for 1-3 week hikes all the time and gregory claims that their packs will last you into your golden years, however i had to send the pack back to gregory after the first time out because the outside compartment zipper busted. It took three and a half months to get it back to me. Shorty after the zipper broke again when i was over 100 miles from my car spilling my stove, and video camera into the foot deep swamp in the Dolly Sods last year. Shortly after the hipbelt snapped loose. this morning while i was out with only a 35 pound load the plastic adjustment part of the hipbelt snapped in half leaving me with a very uncomfortable hike back to my car. Also the seams DO NOT hold up. I have 4, inch long holes in the seams and I have NEVER rubbed my pack on canyon walls like the manufacturer testers claimed to have done and not gotten any wear and tear. The pack was priced at almost $400 dollars! I've seen frame packs from the 70's hold up better than this piece of junk! I could have bought 4 cheap packs for the price of one gregory palisade 80 and moct likely still be on the trail today rather than being online now shopping for a new one. I am a very serious backpacker who carries large loads for long expeditions and this pack has been nothing but problems for me. I strongly advise anyone shopping for a large expedition pack to go for a more affordable/less attractive pack because the gregory palisade WILL NOT LAST LONG!

              Comments about Gregory Palisade 80 Internal Frame Pack:

              A very comfortable way to carry a heavy load. No sign of the reported failure of the rigid plastic hip belt; maybe that's been fixed. The outer pockets are all too small to be very useful and the inner compartmentation takes some getting used to after the flexibility of my old external frame. I view these negatives as the tradeoff required for a comfortable load carrier. But for a heavy duty pack, the fabric is just too thin. Where I go, bear cans are required and this pack can't carry one without stretching the fabric too tight for comfort. There's a slot for a sipping hose to pass through, but no convenient pocket for the bladder. Better instructions might help. My "yes" recommendation comes with some major caveats.
