Should have named it the CHRONIC!

The Granite Gear Blaze is hands down the best bag I have come across for everyday backpacking. I have taken this pack on numerous weekend trips as well as hiking the 273 miles that makes up the long trail through Vermont.
I had no problems or complaints at all. Fit everything I needed for my trip sleeping bag,tent,poles,base layer,mid layer,stove, 2 liters of water,a weeks worth of food etc. I'm 6'1 170 pounds and went for the reg. fit which worked great along with the air current suspension system. I ended up purchasing the lid to fit a few small items as well. The lid worked out great and comes right off in a matter of seconds if your a person who likes to keep a couple things handy at night.
Does the bag come standard with a S,M, or...
Does the bag come standard with a S,M, or L granite gear waist belt?
Not sure if I'm seeing the pictures...
Not sure if I'm seeing the pictures correctly.... is there no top flap for this pack? If not is that an issue for keeping light rain out? I'd hate to have to always use a pack cover on it. Or is that recommended anyway? Thanks!
You are seeing that correctly. It has a tall spindrift opening that cinches and rolls down tight, similar to a dry bag. This will keep out water extremely well.
Thanks, Josh. I think I'll give it a try for my AT hike this summer.
Lightweight and very durable

Lightweight and very durable, wished I had had this on my 70 mile Uinta hike!. 3lbs verses 5.5 lbs.
best pack yet
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
A co worker of mine actually got to use my pack before i did. and we have the same opinion of it. in my opinion its one of the best packs i've used when it comes to weight distribution. my male co worker took it hitchhiking from Ontario Canada to the east coast. and with a pack on your back for an extended length of time, the option to distribute the weight from your shoulders to your hips or a mix of the two, is a life saver. i have only used it once, and compared to old packs i am very happy with this one. the only downfall i found was the hydration pocket is very tight. its hard to stuff even a 1L bladder in it. it's possible! but very stressing on the bladder.
pros: lightweight, beyond adjustable
cons: small hydration pocket
What size hip belt does BC ship with this...
What size hip belt does BC ship with this pack? Can I choose from the S, M or L belts that GG offers?
I ordered the small and it came with a Medium Hipbelt
Would this pack be big enough for a 5 night...
Would this pack be big enough for a 5 night hiking trip in August in Yosemite?
That's really on you and what you carry but 60L should be plenty of space, yes.

Best Pack they have ever made
I have been a huge granite gear fan for many years. I have had a total of 5 packs from these guys and this is the best so far. The new suspension system and air flow system are the best that I have used so far. The pack is layer out really well. The water bottle pocket are deep and can be used for lots of things (fly rod, sandals, water bottles, ect. The front stretch pocket is huge. I ended up putting my tent rain fly in there to help it dry drying the day. The compression straps are all 550 military grade para cord. It look thin, but I have not problem on the 8 trips the pack has been on. I did wish that it came with a lid. Granite Gear do make a lid add on and I got. Glad I did it add a little extra storage for headlamps, map, snacks, ect. I love this pack and would recommend it over and over.
I have the men's version of this and love it. All areas of the pack are crazy adjustable and it swallows gear. I can easily fit all my gear and a Bear Vault BV500 (stuffed with smaller gear, stove, food, etc.) inside the main pack, with all my essential easy-access gear stowed in the outer pockets.
