Performs like a pack twice its weight

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
6' 1"

It's new to me and I've used it for one day hike and one multiday trip (3 nights). So far, I've been very happy. It's not light enough to be a true ultralight (ie close to 3 lbs not < 2) but it's far more comfortable than a true ultralight and far more capable with lots of features those don't have. Actually in terms of comfort and features it rivals many packs at 5+ lbs. The waist belt is very comfortable. The straps adjust to fit nicely. AT 6'1" & 175 lbs I'm just between the regular and tall size, I went with regular and it fits well. I really like the adjustability of the waist strap, it actually gets thin enough for me. The side pockets are easy to reach while walking. The removable top was handy for a quick summit side jaunt. Overall I was very impressed.

Good Pack for Long Hikes

I've used it several times

Bought this for a through hike. Good fitting bag and great value. Ensure you get the right size.

Great, Simple Bag

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is a good sized pack that handles weight well with several adjustment areas to customize fit. It does lack many external pockets as the design is too maximize the size of the main compartment. There are numerous straps to cinch everything down in many places and at different angles so your gear will stay put and not rattle around whether it's inside the main compartment, in the side pockets, it even lashed outside. I do worry about the extensive use of spandex and how it will hold up to long term deep backcountry use, but it's completely unscathed after one such trip of 3 days and 2 nights traversing both on and off trail segments. Note the pack can get quite tall if you use the full volume and the top compartment, especially if you set it up with the straps a little lower. Unless you have a long torso, it can easily extend to the top of your head or beyond meaning you'll need to be careful ducking under things. All in all, is recommend this bag to someone looking for a reasonably lightweight pack with high volume and good weight handling. If long term disability become an issue, I'll amend this review.

Light weight but doesn't hold much gear

I returned this product before using it

If you need to fit a sleeping bag inside, not the bag for you. Took up 70% of the available interior space. Not sure that the few ounces saved in weight are worth the lack of space/lack of gear attachments.

Not 3 lbs

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:

This pack is advertised as weighing 3 lbs but actually weighs 3 lbs 11 oz. I suggest anyone buying it keep that in mind.

Built to carry burdens and give you joys

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
5' 9"

This pack is a total tank. I live in MN and love to camp in the winter. I purposely loaded this pack to 52 pounds. The weight rating of 50 pounds and I did not feel weighed down at all. The really stiff backboard really helps hold the weight close to your back and keep your posture upright. I own an Osprey Atmos and carries no where near as comfortable for this amount of weight. The greatest part of this pack is that the Blaze is only 3 lbs. It is mind blowing to have such a lightweight pack carry such a heavy load. The GG Blaze is really in a tier of its own for weight and ability to carry 40-50 or more. Nothing compares. The cinch straps are great and I carry my snowshoes and tent on the outside. Ive even cinched 20 pounds of wood to my pack to make sure I had dry wood for a weekend trip here in the MN winters. It has a compartment zipper on the side to pull everything you need out without having to pull from the top so I can get straight to the bottom of my pack if need be. The top lid is small but can be used by itself for daytrips. The hip pockets are big and easily accesible. I literally cannot think of anything wrong with this pack, There is no backpack that is even in its realm of competition. Packs that carry heavy weights are usually 4-7 lb packs. The fact the Blaze carries such and is 3 lbs speaks volumes to the innovation Granite Gear brings. The Blaze may not feel as comfy as an Osprey, but you cannot beat this for heavy winter loads. I enjoyed the stiffness of the Blaze because it really helps align your spine and keep proper posture even when exhausted. My Osprey will now become my 3 season pack and my Blaze is now my late fall/Winter pack.

Great Multi-Use Pack

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 10"

I ordered this pack in June after my first backpacking trip with a borrowed pack. After much research I decided to go with the Blaze 60 for several reasons: 1) It's lighter than most 60L packs - 3lbs for regular fit, 2.5 without the lid 2) It is rated to handle up to 50lbs which covers extended trips with heavy water carriers 3) It has compression straps EVERYWHERE to minimize bulk even when carrying items like a bear canister. I took it on a 4 day 3 night trip in late July and absolutely loved it. Even on my first day with the pack at roughly 30lbs it felt connected to my body and I did not experience any shoulder or neck fatigue. I was especially happy with the two side pockets where I stored my water and could reach it without having to take off the pack - a big plus for those looking to cover many miles in a day. Lastly the pack feels very well designed with thought-out features, but still sturdy enough to handle the rigors of the backcountry. This pack is great for anyone looking to reduce weight while still going with a framed pack. Due to the design and compression straps it works well on trips ranging from a few nights to ones lasting a few weeks and with Granite Gear's Rock Solid Warranty I feel confident I can put it to the test without worrying about something breaking and I'm at a loss.
