Gregory says about the Icarus 40
Our young adult Wander packs focus on the same trail needs that adults have when venturing out for a day of contemplation in the woods. The difference is scale. This is why our Wander packs have the same fit and comfort, durable materials, and features only in a format suited for growing hikers. When it comes to our Icarus packs designed for youth hikers, all the same applies except for much simpler and easy to understand feature sets and scaled down sizing. By incorporating the same quality standards and fit Gregory is so well known for, we can be confident that the experience on the trail will inspire many more adventures.
Decades of industry experience have given us a wealth of insight into what first-time backpackers need and want. So with that in mind, we created the Icarus 40: an entry-level backpack designed to make those initial scouting, family, and school group trips as fun as possible by focusing on comfort and ease-ofuse. An adjustable backpanel and straightforward features and pockets eliminate the common fit and function frustrations that keep beginners from falling in love with the trail.
