Gregory Packs

At JWA, our guides love wearing Gregory packs and we love working with their company. Here is a quote from Gregory that explains it all.

"There’s no better companion than the trail.

It doesn’t care what your reasons for visiting are.
It quietly waits and gives generously to those who seek it.
It can serve as confidant, counselor and ferocious teacher all at the same time.
The trail overflows with discoveries, breakthroughs and epiphanies.
Not the least of which is the simple feeling of freedom.

At Gregory, we’ve let the trail inspire every aspect of what we do.
And what we create.
So you can focus on what matters most.
Simply getting outside."
