Granite Gear Backpacking Packs Blaze 60 Backpack - Men's Black/Black Gingham Short 50000250001. The A.C. frame let's you lock in your fit precisely to your torso size. The frame in combination with the patent-pending fully adjustable Re-Fit hip belt and the molded foam back panel lets the pack comfortably carry up to 50 lbs. The custom fabric is an innovative technology that makes this our most durable pack to date. In the high-impact and high-abraison areas we're using a Granite Gear exclusive 210D Robic nylon UHMWPE triple ripstop. The lid which is fully removable to cut grams can be converted to an optional chest pack to carry on your front to keep even more contents at the ready. A tall vertical hidden zipper now allows you to access to main compartment quickly especially to get to those contents at bottom of pack.

If you're looking for a reliable go-to pack for any and all of your extended trips on the trail, look no further than the Granite Gear Blaze 60L Backpack. This pack is about as well-rounded as it gets, offering you a comfortable and custom carry, a super durable construction, and a lightweight design to ensure that you won't have any extra weight with you when you're trudging those last few miles into camp. It's got multiple adjustment points to ensure that your carry is always as comfortable as possible, including both height and hipbelt adjustment systems to keep your fit precise and anatomically correct. The Air Current frame helps to keep you cool on warmer summer hikes, and compression straps on the side help you pull your load in for greater stability. Not only will this pack make it easy to lay down long miles on the trail, but it's also got loads of smart design features to help you thrive in the backcountry. To start, the top lid is removable, and can be attached to the shoulder straps as a chest pack when you want to lighten your pack load and keep quick-access items like snacks and maps closer by. It can also be attached to the removable hipbelt to make a lightweight lumbar pack, giving you the perfect storage for peak-bagging summit trips. A large stretch mesh pocket runs the length of the front panel and lets you store rain shells, tent poles, and extra gear, while a convenient side zipper ensures that you can access hard-to-reach items in your pack without having to root around from the top.
