The MARMOT Granite Backpack is identical to the Gunnison pack carried by a major sporting goods chain, and retailing for $90! Obviously, DERAILED gives you a better deal. Plus if you are going to use this pack in the field for hunting, birding, or just like to keep a low profile, gray is the color... Read More

    Bought this for my husband as a birthday present - he loves it! Lots of zippers and pockets for all different sized items. I think there is even a padded laptop pocket. Planning to use this as a day pack for traveling.

    This is my second Granite pack. I bought the first one in hopes that because of all the separate compartments it might make a good rock climbing pack. Well, it sure did! What I don't like about most climbing packs is that just about everything goes into one main compartment. This means having to dig through to find this or that. I hate that. With the Granite's eight compartments I'm able to keep things organized, separate, and easily accessible. I love it so much I bought a second one to have for my other climbing needs - one for soloing and one for sport/trad/top rope.

    The downside, this pack is discontinued! I called Marmot to ask them to please bring it back, market it as a climbing pack and make a version that is a bit bigger to accommodate more gear. I hope they do. If so, and you're a climber, get one - or two!!!

    I received this item with a rip in the zipped inside pouch upon receipt. It is a small rip but not worth returning for a replacement so for that reason alone this item gets 2 stars only. I like the backpack other than the one problem

    Very good pack for the money. Tons of compartments and expansion space, seems very good quality for the price and will last me quite a while. I've only done day hikes with it so far but this pack can expand large enough to even put a sleeping back in there for an overnight trip. I live a mile from the Appalachian trail and there are shelters along it quite often so theres no need to carry a tent.
    My only real complaint is although the back panel is cushioned it does not vent very well at all. Even on an easy 4 hour hike on a day with temps in the 50's my back was completely soaked with sweat. So I took 1 star off for that.

    The pack is great! I bought it for school to carry all of my books and binders for the day because my messenger bag i was using could not hold everything and i was getting tired of walking out to my car several times a day. But this pack is able to hold everything for all 4 classes plus have room form graphing calculator, 32oz nalgene bottle, computer and cord, sunglasses, scrub pants, shoes, etc. And i still have room for more. Yes with all of that in my pack its heavy but it rides well. The 2 compression straps on each side help the ride. I also use them to secure my nalgene bottle because it is too large for the side zip pockets to close completely.
    This pack could easily hold enough for an overnight trip. And maybe even a 2 maybe 3 night trip depending on the gear you need.

    • I would say yes to the rain cover although I have not taken it for a ride in the rain yet. It's polyester. Packed modestly, it will go on a plane carry on. I have not carried trekking poles but I don't see why they wouldn't fit under the side straps.

      It's an odd bag with lots of pockets. I wish it had a waist belt for longer treks. Hope this helps.

    • Yes on the rain cover and poles. .. we are packing light for the flight over and it will be fine with the size.

    • I would say that you would need a rain cover for this, it can only withstand moderate rain, BUT, this is definitely not the pack for a rain forest. The best use for this is as a school or commuter pack. The side straps are for cinching the sides tighter, but would not securely hold poles for long duration hikes.

      Plus, because it has two separate compartments throughout the whole length, you couldn't really put much in there for more than a day hike. I expect you would need a larger capacity, more technical backpack than this one.

About Marmot

Conceived in a university dorm room by a pair of climbing buddies, Marmot Mountain Works first opened its doors in the spring of 1974 in Grand Junction, Colorado. At the time, the base of operations was a 100-year-old stone building. That same year, the first Marmot down jacket was produced specifically for an action flick called “The Eiger Sanction,” starring legendary actor Clint Eastwood. In the four decades since, Marmot has continued to engineer reliable gear that exceeds the expectations of outdoor athletes. Today, Marmot tents, backpacks, outerwear, clothing and Marmot sleeping bags are still pushing the limits in the planet’s most challenging conditions, from the summits of the world’s highest mountains to the deepest river basins.
