Granite Gear

One of our most fickle ounce-counting Gear Specialists has long been a fan of Granite Gear’s super-streamlined and stripped down Virga packs. These frameless packs have always been designed with a completely minimalist mindset and a fierce determination to drive weight as low as possible. With the Virga3 55, Granite Gear has increased the available storage capacity greatly and, at the same time, also broadened the fit adjustability to accommodate a wider range of potential backpackers. The pack’s RE-FIT dual-density hipbelt plays a key role in supporting weight and has an extended adjustability range (26”-42” for the standard Virga and 24”-40” for the women’s specific version) so, now, regardless of, regardless of your size or personal dimensions, you have the ability to carry a pack with 55 full liters of storage that weighs in at just over 1.5 pounds!
