    Default Granite Gear Blaze 60?

    Anyone have experience with a Granite Gear Blaze 60? If yes, how did it work for you?

    Solid choice. Cheap, light and durable.

    60L is way more volume than I typically need but I like having it for hikes with my bear canister. Like any off the shelf pack I suggest trying it for fit to your body (REI).

    Some days, it's not worth chewing through the restraints.

    I have the lighter Crown 60 cousin, similar features with a less rigid frame. A favorite. I like the large volume to handle my hammock quilts. Like Durwood says, solid choice, light and durable (I guess cheap is in the eye of the beholder).

    Some folks complain about the straps over the side pockets - I just leave them undone. I find GG belts & straps to be very comfortable.

    I've had half a dozen GG packs, I still own 2. I'd have more, but I'm trying to break the habit!

    Definitely worth trying on at the store.
