What makes a backpack 'next-level'' The term is thrown around season after season. Sometimes it's convincing, sometimes it's not. With the Granite Gear Crown V. C. 60 Backpack, it's as if you're wearing an experimental pack dropped off on our planet by trail-conquering extraterrestrials. The Crown V. C. 60 solves the weight vs. durability conundrum by implementing water-resistant SilSeal Cordura nylon, an excellent material for fast and furious peak-bagging or scraping against canyon walls. Granite Gear also knows that you're cutting zippers and straps just to save grams, so it reduced the overall buckle size and strap length.
