Reviewed by Austin from China on Monday, August 19, 2013It is wonderfull, lite and comfortable.
Reviewed by Pharm Hiker from Alabama on Wednesday, July 31, 2013I've managed to get the absolute essentials into this pack for a 2 day trip. Super light weight and laid out very well. The frame is easily adjustable. Because this is targeted as an ultralight pack, there are features that are not on the pack in order to save weight, so review the description carefully.
I do wish that my water bottle was more easily accessible without taking the pack off or contorting my body in such a way as to resemble a pretzel. Otherwise all in all a great backpack.
Question & Answer

“What size hipbelts do these come with? I know when buying at other stores you have an option of different sizes to choose from, Granite Gear uses removable, differently sized hipbelts on these packs, not one size fits all. Therefore, these packs might not fit folks, even if the spine length is proper. Thanks!”
This question was answered, via chat, by Sierra. They told me that the small comes with a small sized hipbelt, the regular with a medium sized hipbelt. Not shocking, but good to know. The small, according to GG fits 26"-30", the medium fits 30"-34".
