Gregory Wander 70 Review

Gregory Mountain Products was founded in 1977, but founder Wayne Gregory had been designing backpacks long before that – Gregory designed his first pack for a Boy Scout product when he was only 14 years old. To this day, Gregory Mountain Products is a company that values using the best possible materials to make something that will be the most effective during use. Throughout our Gregory Wander 70 review we found this bag incorporates these values into a backpack made for children ages 10-18.
