Why We Like The Crown 2 Limited Edition 60L Backpack

Instead of suffering from the weight of a heavy pack on a multi-day adventure, we shoulder the Granite Gear's Crown 2 60L Backpack to move quickly over long, demanding trails. The Appalachian Trail serves up a lot of miles to walk, and if we have a heavy pack, some of those miles are going to be difficult.

At 2lb 5oz, the Crown 2 doesn't hold us back, and if we need to make the pack even lighter, the top bucket and internal frame sheet are removable, so it's possible to get the backpack down to 1lb 11oz. And for those who repeatedly have trouble finding a pack that fits, the Crown2 has Granite Gear's Re-Fit hip belt, which easily adjusts to various body sizes, so the pack's hip belt can still cinch down to fit our body when we lose ten pounds hiking the AT.

  • Lightweight multi-day pack for extended adventures
  • Re-Fit hip belt is fully adjustable for on-the-go comfort
  • Removable lid minimizes weight for ultralight performance
  • Roll-top buckle top allows easy access to gear
  • Vapor Current system delivers cooling to your sweaty back
  • Hydration compatible with internal sleeve and hose port
  • Big hip belt pockets for snacks, maps, and safety kit
  • Item #GRGK09X

Good lightweight pack - tight shoulders

This is a good pack. It's light and large enough to handle 5 days in the Grand Tetons. The one major thing I find difficult is that the shoulder straps are a bit narrow, so if you have a larger neck it can be uncomfortable. About day 3 I wished I had an airplane pillow to put between the pack and my neck.

It is light weight and comfortable with the thick hip straps. I had very little back ventilation so it will get sweaty but for the weight, price, and space it is awesome. The inner roll top design also makes for a great way to add and reduce space keeping your gear compact. Overall I would purchase again.

Broken strap

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

True to size

So i took this out on an overnight trip. Had maybe 20 lbs in the pack. Worked great hiking to but in the morning as soon as everything is packed the strap for the buckle on my waist had unthreaded and bike off. Thank goodness it was a short trek out. I've sent this back.

After agonizing over the purchase of a pack to replace the ancient Jansen aluminium external frame pack, the Granite Gear Crown 60 is perfect for me. I wanted to be light, but I'm not ready to go frameless, I wanted the versatility of being able to carry a lot, or not so much volume, and I didn't want to spend a fortune on a pack I might replace if my needs change as I become more familiar with 'modern' backpacking equipment. The simple top load bag makes a lot of sense to me. I stack my gear in it in the order I'll use it when I get to camp, bag and pad in the bottom in a waterproof pack liner, food bag on top of that, then the tent. As it gets warmer, I put shed layers on top of the tent and let the pack get a little taller. The lycra pocket expands plenty to hold the toiletries bag and trowel, as well as my sit pad, tent stakes, ditty bag, and map. The side pockets easily hold the water filtration and a 1 liter bottle on one side, the other becomes my 'catch-all' pocket for stuff... The adjustable hip belt is nice. I found myself adjusting it (it can be made longer or narrower at the center back) several times during the first hike to get the right feel, and haven't touched it since. The hip belt pockets are roomy enough for each to carry a packet of tuna, a packet of spam, three bars, and a long plastic spoon (for the tuna). One pocket gets the food, the other gets the sweat towel. I haven't used the removable bag yet, maybe if I do a short overnight and want more stuff for camp. I also haven't tried removing the internal frame pad yet, I'm considering trying that on an upcoming four nighter after I reduce the weight of my gear. All of my usage to date has been at about 30-32 pounds total weight including water, food, fuel, and the thermals for camp. I tend to walk all day, and the pack doesn't create any hotspots on my skin. I do move the load lifters around quite a bit, especially when gaining elevation or downhiking.

Switched to the Granite Gear 60L Crown 2 and promptly sold my Osprey Atmos 65ag. This pack is everything I wanted and more. After reading dozens of great reviews and watching review (vlogs) on YouTube, I thought this may be the pack for me. I was correct. I love everything about it. If you want a tough, trail proven, lightweight pack this is the one. I can even get much more gear in this 60L than I could the 65L Osprey. All the adjustments are great as well. A lot of though went into designing this pack. At this price point there is no way you can go wrong. Big props to Granite Gear and to Back Country. The collaboration of the 2 produced a great product at a great price. What more could you want?

Nice review but did you hit the "submit" button 13 times or is there some other error going on here that the same review appears 13 times in the backcountry.com site?

Does anyone know is this one is for men or for unisex? I can’t find any information about this limited edition...

Hi. What is the difference between models: 1) Granite Gear Crown 2 60L Limited Edition 2) Granite Gear Crown 2 60L ? Is Granite Gear Crown 2 60L Limited Edition 2017 or 2019 model?

What is the smallest the hip belt can get?

The hip belt can be adjusted down to about 26 inches.

On the granite gear crown 2, what is the difference between the regular and long torso options? And is this backpack unisex?

Hi Allen! This is a unisex pack and the suggested torso lengths are 18" - 21" for the regular and 21" - 25" for the long.
