Crown V.C.60 with AirBeam Pack Frame

Description

Granite Gear's Crown 60 and the brand new Vapor Current Air Beam Pack Frame by Klymit is the culmination of advanced technologies and construction techniques to make the most capable and versatile lightweight pack on the market. Weighing just under 2 pounds, this pack configuration was used by Shawn Forry (carrying 50 plus pounds!!) to destroy the Colorado Trail record, and is resetting the bar for what to expect from a sub 2 pound pack. The Crown 60 is a roll top closing top loader with the carry, compression systems, and legendary fit we have come to expect from a Granite Gear pack. Vapor Current is Granite Gear’s newest suspension. At first glance, you’ll notice the ventilation channels molded into the cushy back pad. These channels 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 like mesh tensioned systems. Beneath the molded foam, the VC frame has a full length (all the way up to the load lifters), Air Beam frame sheet that loads up to 45 lbs comfortably. The belt and shoulder straps feature dual density padding and new narrow webbing straps. The shoulder strap has a built in stretch mesh pocket, and the belt has the capacity to accept our optional hip belt pockets. Vapor Current packs are fixed (non adjustable) torso packs that come in sizes: · Short and Regular in women’s models · Regular and Long in the men’s version Klymit take: In developing this Air Beam configuration with Granite Gear, this pack saw more than 1000 bikepacking miles, 500 trail miles, some big granite and sandstone walls, some seriously gnarly and wet slot canyons, and over 100,000 + vertical. We have yet to find conditions it has not excelled in. The compression system does its job and varies the size dramatically, and we were happy with both weekend and weeklong loads. Corners were not cut to save weight. Construction is bomber, padding is more than adequate on shoulder straps, and there is more padding, structure, and shape to the hip belt than any other pack in its weight class. This is a worthy progression from the venerated GG Vapor, and is among the more versatile packs we have ever used. It would be hard to go wrong with this pack. The one drawback…It won’t make you as fast as Shawn Forry. But then again, who is?????
