Alf Alderson reviews the Gregory Sketch 28 and finds that if you’re looking for one pack to suit both urban and outdoor needs this may be the answer.

gregory pack
Overall Score
Great for commuting as well as general outdoor use Well made
Not the lightest of packs

The Sketch 28 is designed to carry a 15” laptop in a well-padded zippered side panel which also has space for notebook, pens, phone etc., but it's also versatile enough to be used for less-demanding days in the hills.

The main compartment is accessed from the top and there’s also a zippered outer and side pocket, giving a total volume of 28-litres; the shoulder straps and back panel are well-padded and both sternum and hip straps are removable.

Build quality is very good and I liked stuff like the reflective logo and exterior lash points for bike lights which make it both practical and safer for urban use – sure, this isn’t a pack for major fell walking expeditions but it will more than adequately cope with easy day hikes as well as getting all your gear to the office safely.
