Debuting fall 2022, the new Tempo H2O and Pace H2O open up a new category for Gregory Packs - active insulated hydration

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH (March 10, 2022) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Gregory Mountain Products, the long-time leader in backpack design and innovation, unveils three new families of daypacks for fall 2022. The Tempo H2O and women’s Pace H2O define a brand-new category for Gregory with insulation technology that keeps water cold twice as long as standard hydration packs. The tried-and-true Salvo H2O and women’s Sula H2O, hydration daypacks, receive an update in the form of ventilation and organization. And in the everyday adventure category, Gregory introduces the Rhune to its lineup with modern style, functional design and recycled components.

Ideal for fast and light missions in the mountains, the Tempo H2O and women’s Pace H2O open up a new category of packs for Gregory – active insulated hydration. The integrated hydration compartment combines a vapor-barrier liner with reflective, closed-cell insulation that traps cold air to keep water cold for up to four hours, twice the time as standard hydration packs. The packs feature a 3D perforated foam backpanel that fits snugly against your back while still providing optimal airflow, and come equipped with a quick-drying 3D Hydro Reservoir with SpeedClip mounting system and quick-disconnect hose for easy refills. The Tempo H2O and Pace H2O are available in 3L (MSRP: $99.95) and 6L ($119.95) capacities.

Also in the active hydration category, the redesigned Salvo H2O and women’s Sula H2O offer an elevated trail experience with a new ventilated backpanel and 3D Hydro Reservoir. Gregory’s Freespan suspension system – a suspended mesh backpanel and perforated foam shoulder harness – offer maximum breathability and comfort on the trail. The packs also come with Gregory’s 3D Hydro Reservoir and a full suite of quick-access pockets to keep items protected and close at hand. The Salvo H2O and Sula H2O  are available in 8L ($129.95) and 16L ($139.95) capacities.

For everyday adventures, the Rhune Collection is a collaboration with Gregory’s Japanese design team. The collection delivers a performance-focused design and modern style with a sustainability story. The collection utilizes GRS-certified 100% recycled materials, the same materials used for Gregory’s Baltoro and Deva backpacking packs. The recycled material reduces the carbon footprint of each new pack by 51% – 57% (depending on the liter size). The AirCushion backpanel is comprised of 90% air for unmatched ventilation and thoughtful details include an integrated shoulder harness pocket, top zippered quick-access pocket and laptop and tablet sleeves. The Rhune is available in 20L ($109.95), 22L ($129.95) and 25L ($119.95) capacities.
