Founder Wayne Gregory made his first backpack as part of a Boy Scouts project when he was just 14. He then set out to discover raw materials and tinker with new ideas, and in the 1970s, began designing sleeping bags, tents, and technical apparel for a number of outdoor specialty companies. Inspired by advancements in soft packs and internal frame concepts, he founded his own backpack company in 1977. Based in San Diego, Gregory Mountain Products prides itself in creating innovative, ergonomic designs using the best materials available.
