Designed for comfort and durability, and deliberately simple in design, the Granite Gear Blaze A.C. backpack is made for thru-hikes and multi-day adventures. It features the Air Current suspension, complete with a three-dimensionally molded alloy frame, padded shoulder straps, and the company's quickest torso length adjustment yet. To keep you cool on the trail, the frame’s molded air channels, molded foam pad, and durable stretch mesh vent heat and moisture away from the body. The lidless top loader has a tall spindrift opening that can be rolled down tight for weather resistance, or expanded when you need extra space. Along with three stretch mesh pockets, there’s a Line-Loc compression system for lashing on additional gear and cinching the load tight in every direction.
Note: At checkout, select the Blaze A.C. 60 or the women’s-fit Blaze A.C. 60 KI in your choice of torso size (short: 14"-18" or regular: 18"-22") and color (cactus/java or tiger/java). The hip belts on the women’s-fit packs are sculpted to fit the increased angle of women’s hips.
During a paddling trip through Quetico Provincial Park in 1986, friends Jeff Knight and Dan Cruikshank decided the world needed better outdoor gear—and they wanted to have something to do with it. Not long after, Granite Gear was born. Today, it makes award-winning backpacks, stuff sacks, and other accessories for wilderness adventurers, travelers, students, and even soldiers in the field. The company takes its name from the toughness of its products, which have gained a cult-like following and proven their mettle in some of the world’s harshest environments, from Mount Everest to the North and South Poles.
