Ancho 18

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great lightweight daypack for short hikes; has an internal pocket to hold a hydration bladder, two external side pockets, and a front long zip compartment for easy access. I use this for bike commuting and for short excursions where I don't need any gear. Granite Gear really puts a lot of thought into product development. The side pocket zippers are oriented front-to-back so you can unzip and grab things without taking off the pack. I love this bag. It's lightweight, the color is great, and it's… Full review

Leopard A.C. 58

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent long trip pack. I recently purchased this item on eBay because I needed a little more pack room for a week long hike and for "winter" backpacking. Used it in March 2016 and I loved it. It's lightweight but had all the extra room I needed for the extra gear I was carrying. I love the fact that its height is adjustable because that is the biggest problem I have in trying to get a good pack since my torso is short. I love the roll down opening and the big stretchy side pockets. The one drawback… Full review

Leopard V.C. 46

rated 4 of 5 stars Nearly great pack, with a few design quirks. But really hits the empty space between packs that are too light and too heavy. It took me forever to find a pack the could carry a good 35 pound load comfortably while keeping the pack weight reasonable. Granite Gear seems to have a great feel for this balance. I wish there were fewer straps, but they seemed to have thrown every strap they could think of here. But, for a versatile, strong, and comfortable pack this is VERY hard to beat. Love it and will… Full review

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. Manufacturer Specs:Weight 1.2oz/34g [*My scale reads 1.7 oz/48 g] Dimensions 6.25x3.25x1.5" /16x8x4cmThese foam padded, ultralight pockets attach to a pack's load lifter webbing at the top, and lower adjustment buckle web at the… Full review

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
