Granite Gear Leopard VC 46 Backpack - Internal Frame
Closeouts. Granite Gear's Leopard VC 46 backpack excels at off-trail scrambling and in alpine environments, thanks to numerous compression straps and effective load stabilizers. The roll-top design and internal frame sheet combine to offer a wide load carrying range.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by PDub from Winston Salem, NC on Wednesday, November 2, 2016I sent this back so consider this review only for fit. I was on the low end of the larger size range (torso). I should've bought the smaller because this was too long/tall and I could tell it would restrict my head from tilting back due to the pack sticking up above my shoulders. It looked like a great pack but the fit was just more appropriate for a taller person. I'm 5'10" with a 21" torso. Go for the Regular size if you're close to my size.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Travis from Pennsylvania on Monday, October 24, 2016I really like the quality of this bag and overall options but just does not fit me well. The shoulder straps are very close together and they ride on the back of my neck. I've compared many other backpacks at the same size as this such as Gregory and Osprey bags and they all have shoulder straps that are set much wider than this. Most other packs have 1 - 2 more inches of space so that the shoulder straps wrap around the center of my shoulderblades. I'm not sure why this bag was designed this way but I would really recommend trying it on before purchasing it.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mark Boston from Indiana on Monday, October 24, 2016for the price, I have no complaints. Just completed a 2 day 15 mile hike into a national forest and I had no issues. Carried ~50lbs without much issue. Lots of compression straps around the outside, which were nice.
The back could use better ventilation - you are going to sweat with this one. Could also use a couple more external pockets.
Other wise, I am happy with it.
