Sometimes adventures and travel take us places other than mountains. For front country travel, we want a pack that’s just as functional as our multiday packs but sleek enough to fit through crowded places. The Gregory Pierpont is a 23.5L pack out the Avenues Collection. It bridges the gap between a fashionable urban pack and a functioning traveling pack. The sleek and streamlined look is deceiving, hiding this pack’s insane durability of the 600 denier polyester ripstop weave and water resistant bottom panels.
We feel the Pierpont successfully border lines professional. Our tester doubles as a DJ for weddings and found this pack to be the perfect piece of gear for hauling a laptop, headphones, cables, etc, to his events. His only critique was the side pocket wouldn’t expand enough to fit a water bottle when fully packed. And although the dedicated laptop sleeve will fit a 15 inch laptop, it’s a tight squeeze. The little tweaks aside, the Pierpont speaks to millennials in its trending and modern look and delivers durability and performance to the professional who needs function before fashion.
Note: We get to keep most of the gear that we test out. While this is a perk, we try hard to give everything an unbiased review no matter what.
If you end up buying something through a link on our site, we generally get a small commission on the referral, this won't cost you more, but helps us keep the lights on around here!
