Gossamer Gear Gorilla Backpack Review by Dave Collins
The Gossamer Gear Gorilla is a fantastic backpack. It’s light, comfortable, tough, and appropriately priced. GG clearly spent a lot of time designing every detail of this pack and it really shows. I feel very comfortable recommending this backpack to any lightweight backpacker.

Gear Review: Gossamer Gear Gorilla Ultralight Backpack by Annette McGivney
Most versitile ultralight backpack - Are you a part-time ultralighter? This chameleon pack lets you strip away features (and weight) for the ultimate UL experience, then add them back for trips when heavier loads or rougher terrain make you wish for more stability and comfort.
“Guru of Lightness” – Peter Jensen
"Lean, tall, clad in his hiking clothing from head to toe and carrying an alarmingly simple pack, Glen Van Peski of Carlsbad strides into a room..." "As he unpacks... [he] makes it clear that he really has entered a realm of Extreme Lightness of Being."
G4 pack reviewed by Chris Townsend. "It makes ultralight packs look heavy."
