New to Australia and exclusive to 50 Days are the Granite Gear Blaze A.C. 60 and Crown V.C. 60. These two packs are truly lightweight at 1.3 kilograms and 960 grams respectively, made of tough Cordura Brand; they can take a beating.
Perfect for thru-hiking, the Blaze and Crown come in both men's and women's specific fits. The regular and long torso sizes are equipped to carry 60 litres and the women's smaller torso size with a 55 litre capacity.
There is also an optional Line-Loc Lid with an extra 7 litre carrying capacity which doubles as a detachable bum-bag for those short scenic side trips. Your body will appreciate the load capacity of 16 kilograms, ensuring many years of adventuring.
The Air Current (A.C.) has a generous 3 layers of padding throughout the hip belt and harness system, while the Vapor Current Suspension Technology (V.C.) is a single layer of moulded foam.
We mostly love the interchangeable belt, easy to adjust harness system, roll top lids, stretchy side pockets on the outside for wet tents and most importantly it's comfort.
The Blaze and Crown are our personal packs of choice, tried and tested by us and in the field by sessional outdoor leaders. These bad boys also received the Editor's Choice Award in 2012. We believe it's about hiking healthier and smarter. Call us for a fitting today.
