Why We Like The Granite Gear Virga3 55L Backpack

Earning its place in the ultralight category, the Granite Gear Virga3 55L Backpack is filled with innovations that minimize mass. Rather than letting the weight of a frame sheet, stays, or back panel foam weigh us down, the Virga3 load assists with suspension. Dedicated panels stash our sleeping pad at our back to provide support and shape. Compression straps at the top, front, and sides secure our equipment, ensuring the best balance as we endure the outdoors. And ultralight doesn't have to mean ultra-weak: Robic nylon fabric keeps our gear protected from rugged rock faces and unexpected weather.

Ultralight and Ultra-amazing!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 6"

I bought this pack for the Toubkal summit and it did not disappoint. Full disclosure, it wasn't packed for a thru hike so I still need to see how it will pack using a sleeping pad in place of the frame, but it was ridiculously light so I am hopeful when I pack it for extended hiking it will be comfortable. I was able to adjust it easily to my size and it had ample exterior zipped pockets for water and other small items. I even used a 1.5 liter bladder internally and it worked fine. Using the bladder actually helped with weight distribution.
