I bought this pack to do my first backpacking trip, Devon coast to coast. I have a medium which is perfect for me, a 5'7" woman. Loved this pack, so comfy and stable and the weight really felt like it was in the right place. Hardly noticed I was wearing it! Totally recommended.

Gossamer Gear Gorilla Rucksack Robic
Wednesday, 20 May 2015  | 

This is the third version of the Gorilla rucksack and I have also owned the previous 2 models.Probably too early to do a review as I have not got around to using it yet.However,first impressions very favourable.Much better designed and the new material appears very light and strong.Mesh pocket also made of stronger material than on previous models- appears to be well designed and I am sure it will prove to be an excellent lightweight rucksack.

Gossamer Gear Gorilla 2014 (Robic)
Thursday, 27 November 2014  | 

Though I have yet to use the pack in anger I have had it loaded around the house on several occasions with a typical 5day load of kit and food (about 12kg/26lb). It carries superbly well and I cannot believe the comfort and stability in a pack that weighs so little - mine weighs 811g with the Medium Hipbelt. The materials and workmanship that have gone into making the pack are first rate. My former pack was a 60L 1.3kg Granite Gear Blaze pack which I had thought was perfect but the Gorilla seems as though it will easily replace the Blaze as my 'go to' pack and as a step further along the path of 'Going Lighter'.

First class Customer Service from Bob, Rose and Co. at BPL.co.uk. I cannot praise them enough for the help, advice and service they provided me with.
