So your looking for an ultra light pack you say? Well as you know Granite Gear doesn’t slouch when it comes to making high quality backpacks. They didn’t stop here either. The Virga 2 is everything a UL backpack should be. Well made, versatile, comfortable with twin side stretchy pockets and one long stretchy pocket down the front of the pack.
The pack is frameless, just over 1 pound at 1lb. 3oz. for the regular size. The pack comes in short, regular and large sizes so something for most body sizes. The entire body of the Virga 2 is made up of 110D and 210D high tenacity #Cordura Ripstop Nylon and will definitely take a beating for years to come. The internal volume of this pack is 3300 cu. in. or 54 liters for the regular size. It has a roll top closure system and 3 large stretchy pockets.
Here are some of the features built in:
- Fixed padded hip belt
- 10mm Webbing straps (ultralight)
- Tool loops
- Hydration compatible (bladder sold separately) with port and bladder hanger
- Very large side stretchy pockets
- Extra large front stretchy pocket
- Roll-top closure system which includes extended overflow
- Padded rolling stay built in
This is one comfortable, well made pack and I highly recommend getting one for yourself if your looking for an UL pack that is built to last! I have personally used this pack on several 1 night trips and love this pack as its super comfortable and I can fit everything I need in it for a 1 night backpacking trip and still be comfortable
