The Gorilla™ Ultralight backpack from Gossamer Gear is the proud successor to its award winning namesake. Built on the same platform as the original we have upgraded it for durabilitly, functionality, and feature set.
This Gorilla™ is constructed largely of our custom 140 denier Dyneema GGridstop™ fabric for a sweet spot blend of toughness and weight. The Gorilla™ now sports 6 exterior pockets with loads of options for organizing and accessing your gear. The Gorilla™ Ultralight is a top loader and utilizes our OTT™ (over-the-top) closure system for a simple, solid, secure closure that also includes an integrated zippered top pocket.
Also new is a taller more padded hipbelt with integrated pockets for a plusher more comfortable ride. Completing the harness is our new comfy curved shoulder strap system and groovy new EZClip™ sternum strap. The Gorilla™ backpack has an updated compression system that works with the OTT to compress vertically as well as horizontally. This compression lacing also serves to lash a jacket, foam pad, or other gear to the sides or top of the pack. You will also find an updated version of our proprietary removable stay.
At just over a pound and a half complete the Gorilla™ remains Ultralight to the core and is tougher and more feature rich than ever. The Gorilla™ ultralight backpack is a smaller-mid volume pack that is suitable for most any type of trip. The Gorilla™ is best with loads under 30lbs but will handle up to 35 just fine. It comes with a SitLight™ pad, removable stay, and integrated but removable shock cord lacing, 2 cord locks and mini cord clip.
