Granite Gear Crown 3 60 Unisex


Weight: 1088 g

Granite Gear Crown is the backpack we use the most often ourselves. We have a lot of experience with this backpack, and can wholeheartedly recommend it. Granite Gear Crown is an excellent combination of light weight, performance and volume. The best thing about Crown is the versatility. We have used this in deep winter ski trips, packrafting, ultralight backpacking and many other adventures in all seasons of the year. You can strip it down to weigh very little, but also beef it up to be a high-volume multi-day backpack. This backpack has a lot of volume for one kilogram of weight!

What you might not spot immediately about this backpack is the excellent strap system. You can lash a lot of things outside the Crown. The straps on top of the mesh pocket carry irregularly shaped objects such as snow shoes or PFDs. The side straps secure long gear, such as bottles, paddles, tent poles, tripods, gimbals and avalance shovels. You can store large objects under the brain of the backpack, and there are lashing points on the top and bottom of the backpack for tents and more.

For many years, this has been the one we have been suggesting to people asking recommendations for a hiking backpack. For hikers and adventurers with versatile ambitions, this is the best there is. Now available in Europe!

For ultralight loads, the frame sheet can be removed lowering the weight to 900 grams. The Crown 3 60L has a fixed, non-adjustable torso length that is offered in 3 torso sizes.
