It's light, durable, comfortable, and simple. Lots with this pack and it's just plain awesome!
- Tons of support
- The pack itself is durable but the outside pockets will eventually start to show some wear and stretch, but that's after AWHILE.
This pack is awesome! I have taken it out on several backpacking trips and I love it. The Crown 60 weighs in at around 2 lbs. Some might think that even that might be too heavy, but with the added support on my back the crown feels amazing.
The pack is 60 liters and holds everything you will need with room to spare. The hip belt is large and comfortable so if you are looking for hip and back support like I was I can assure you this pack is for you.
My buddy used a Crown to hike the AT and his is still going strong even after finishing. So if this pack can do that you know it's going to last for you. Best pack I've had so far.

The Crown VC 60 Ki Pack combines the durability and quality that Granite Gear packs are known for with many features and functions. This pack weighs in at 2 lb. 2 oz. and the frame can be removed so the pack can be used for ultralight loads, (1 lb. 13 oz. without the frame). The new Vapor Current suspension features channels molded into the cushy back pad that allow air to circulate from bottom to top, taking advantage of convection to aid in evaporative cooling. This facilitates circulation without shifting the pack's center of gravity away from your back. Beneath the molded foam, the VC frame has a full length (all the way up to the load lifters), HDPE die-cut sheet that supports loads up to 35 lbs. This top loading pack has a secure, roll top closure that provides easy access and an internal hydration sleeve so you can add your own hydration reservoir for hands-free drinking on the trail.
