Granite Gear Crown 40 ECO

Granite Gear

A smaller version of the iconic and award-winning Crown 60, the Crown 40 ECO takes a big step forward on the trail of environmentally friendly construction. Like it’s larger sibling, it utilizes ultra-lightweight fabrication and a minimalist design to cater to the wants and needs of thru-hikers and true ounce-counters but does so using Global Recycled Standard-certified materials. This includes both a framesheet molded from repurposed plastics that otherwise were bound for a landfill and high-tenacity recycled fabrics, webbings, and even the cushioning foam in the backpanel and waistbelt. Three cheers to Granite Gear for taking the long view on the manufacturing side and for continuing to deliver the performance we’ve come to expect from them.
