Gregory packs are world famous for their supreme carrying comfort, stability and tuneable fit and this Sula is no exception. Gregory's Sula is capable of carrying 10kg without stress, a hefty weight for such a small daypack. The key to this is how well the weight is distributed. Gregory's hipbelt and shoulder straps are so well designed and feel unlike any other pack. They don't compensate a lack of design with an inch-thick layer of foam, they ensure all contact points feature an anatomical shape designed to distribute the weight evenly and efficiently as possible.

The female specific Sula features Gregory's Freespan suspension system; their most breathable and free-flowing option to keep your back nice and cool. It uses a leaf spring lumbar support system integrated into a supportive and lightweight frame, allowing air to pass freely behind your back. The internal volume inside the bag isn't reduced, yet the bag still sits nicely away from your back with only the mesh in contact. 

Further breathability is achieved by using a ventilated lumbar pad and a ventilated harness to improve airflow around areas that will be supporting the most weight. Low profile cushioning is then added to keep the weight closer to your body, improving stability and load-bearing comfort. 

An internal hydration sleeve keeps your water separate from the rest of your kit, while adjustable upper and lower trekking pole attachments allow you to stow away the poles when not in use. Sunglasses can also be stored on the outside of the pack via a small loop positioned on the side of the Sula. Two pockets along the hipbelt store snacks, keys or a phone and side mesh pockets can fit 500ml bottles if you don't use a bladder.

Buyers Guide

Getting the correct fit for your rucksack is as important as getting the fit right for your boots. A badly fitting pack can inflict misery and discomfort and completely ruin your adventure. This guide is designed to help you get the best fit and comfort from your chosen pack so that carrying all your kit becomes a pleasure and not a chore.

ADJUSTING THE BACK LENGTH

If the pack has an adjustable back length, adjust this to your correct level. Your back length is not related to your height but your torso length. Many packs, and specifically the bigger and more technical packs are available in different back lengths or feature adjustable back systems. Contrary to popular belief, your torso length and not your overall height is the key to getting a well fitted pack. Tall people don’t necessarily have long torsos, just as shorter people don’t always have a short torso length.

Your torso length can be found by measuring from your C7 vertebra (the bony protrusion at the back of your neck when looking down) to the height of your iliac crest (top of your hip bones, where you put your hands on your hips). This measurement will give you an idea of which pack back length to choose.

Once you've got the back length sorted, either by selecting the correct size pack or adjusting the back system, you can begin to follow these simple steps to help achieve a comfortable carry.

LOOSEN OFF ALL STRAPS

Before you start fitting the pack, loosen off all the straps as this will make it easier to get the correct tension later.

TIGHTENING THE HIPBELT

Fasten the backpack hipbelt, the general position is the same as where you’d put your ‘hands on hips’ This area is called the pelvic girdle, and what you can feel when you rest your hand on the area is the bony protuberance, the iliac crest. The iliac crest can support the weight from a pack comfortably, and for sustained periods. The padded section of the hipbelt should encompass this and fit securely.

Tighten the straps so the hipbelt feels secure and held firmly around your body. Ensure that the lumbar pad is centered to your lower back to give you maximum support. Remember that your hips carry most of the weight of the pack, so this should be firm but comfortable.

ADJUSTING THE SHOULDER STRAPS

Next, adjust the shoulder straps, pull them until they start to become snug, but ensure that they are not too tight as to lift the pack off your hips. Remember tightening them will stabilise the pack but will increase pressure over the shoulders. If the back length of the pack is correct the shoulder straps will be flush to your shoulders whilst the hipbelt sits in place comfortably. The point where the shoulder straps attach to the main body of the pack should be roughly half way down your shoulder blades; this ensures  that the shoulder straps rolls evenly over the top of your shoulders to distribute the weight correctly.

FASTENING THE CHEST STRAP

Fasten the chest strap and pull until taut but not tight, the elastic section should not be extended. This helps keep the shoulder straps from catching in your shoulder joints and keeps the stability of the pack when moving over rough ground.

ADJUSTING THE TOP TENSIONERS

Top tensioner straps link the shoulder straps to the top of the pack. When tightened, their main function is to stabilise the top part of the pack. The optimum angle for these straps in 45º, but they will stabilise the load even when horizontal or at a more obtuse angle. Tighten them until you feel the top part of the pack rest against your pack, over tightening them will create excessive pressure on the front of your shoulders.

ADJUSTING THE SIDE TENSIONERS

Side tension straps are linked to the hipbelt. By tightening these straps you can stabilise the load but reduce the hipbelt flexibility. Where balance is critical tightening them can help you feel more secure. However, if you are striding out over easy terrain it’s better to loosen these straps to allow full hip flexibility.

ADJUSTING THE SIDE COMPRESSION STRAPS

Side compression straps come next, pulling these tight does two things: firstly, it stabilises the load, secondly it can lift the lower part of the pack, repositioning the load closer to your back.

ADJUSTMENTS ON THE GO

Following these steps should give you a comfortable but secure fit on your pack. Sometimes adjustments will need to be made on the go depending on the terrain or the load you are carrying. The perfect fit is very much a personal preference so experiment with different tensions on the pack to find what suits you best.

Great deals and first class customer service; really nice people, too. Fun website - the few typos are easily forgiven as you can tell that they are passionate about outdoor gear, and the product descriptions are honest e.g. "Not the most technical item but one you will keep coming back to" sort of thing. Keep up the good work!
