Shoulder Strap Pocket

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Granite Gear Shoulder Strap Pocket is a great piece of gear that gives you padded, highly water resistant storage easily within reach at all times. I recommend this product to anyone that needs a little extra storage space, or anyone that doesn't have hipbelt pockets.

Hiker Wallet

rated 5 of 5 stars This great little product may seem unnecessary, but it will grow on you! I recommend the Hiker Wallet to anyone that goes into the backcountry that doesn't want to carry their big heavy wallet! Okay, I admit it—this was an impulse buy! But I am happy that I bought it! This is a great little product from Granite Gear that I have been using for several years now. It's one of those things that isn't really necessary, but you'll be glad you have it. After I purchased it, I thought "Well this is silly. Full review

Virga 2

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Minimalist, lightweight, quite comfortable, great for backcountry tips of one to several days and nights knowing that it is necessary to pack light.

Everything adjusts to fit, and the chest support can be adjusted to fit across correctly. I find with other men's packs, this strap hits in the wrong area, so when needed,… Full review

Virga 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Lightweight, comfortable, great for overnights or longer trips if you pack light. Holds a surprising volume, though I wouldn't want to push the weight limit. Just wish it had a hip belt pocket. I'm a woman using the short size of this pack and it fits better than many lady-specific packs I've tried. I've been using this pack for a few months now and I really dig it. Super light, obviously, but the durability is there. I love the simplicity of it, and with a sleeping pad inside to act as a substitute… Full review

Vapor Day

rated 5 of 5 stars Medium size and full featured day hiking pack, large enough for winter excursions, lightweight enough for any walk. Super comfortable padded frame and hip-belt. I use this stylish little guy for every day-hike I go on, from training hikes around a local lake to winter traverses of the Black Mountain Crest Trail. It is technical enough for scrambling through Tallulah Gorge, has enough room for water filtration and crampons, but is light enough and comfortable enough that it just disappears off your… Full review
