Backwoods trails to bustling streets.
Cleanly designed with a minimalist aesthetic, the Gregory Women's Maya 22 Backpack brings functional carrying and streamlined support into your daily commute, weekend hikes, and far-flung travel. The BioSync suspension system not only prevents moisture build-up with its well-ventilated design, but moves naturally with your body to prevent uncomfortable pressure points resulting from an overly rigid back panel and shoulder straps.
The top-access main compartment is roomy enough for storing extra layers, daily documents, and other larger items, with an internal-zip security pocket for housing keys, cash, and other small necessities. Another innovative feature is the bungee-secured front pocket that expands to accommodate your bike helmet or rain jacket. Ultimately, this lends the Maya 22 the versatility needed for conquering everything from downtown bike commutes to extended travel across widely varying climates.

- Q & A
Flimsy fabric, no hydro sleeve
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
This pack is not right for serious day hikers who use hydro packs-- and that is most of us. There is no separate compartment for the hydro pack. The fabric and feel in this lightweight Gregory pack is flimsy compared to others I've tried. Returning right out of the box.
Holds 2 Magnums of Champagne No Problem
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I LOVE my Maya pack. It is the most comfortable hiking pack that I have owned and has a ton room and easy access to every pocket. I have used this pack from everything from 20+ mile day hikes to 3 mile hikes to haul champagne to natural hot springs. The hip strap is very comfortable and doesn't create a battle with the waistband of my shorts while hiking. I love the pockets on the hip strap, a great place to keep snacks, phone or camera.
The side compression straps help synch the pack down when you aren't carrying as much to keep it secure.
