Questions on Blaze AC 60 Ki - Women's

Sort by Descending
  • From howard at 12/3/11 7:43 PM
    • What is the maximum torso length that this pack should fit, and how measured?
    • Thanks for the question. The size chart lists the Blaze AC 60 Ki Short torso at 14"-18", and the Regular torso at 18"-24". To find your torso length, I suggest following Granite Gear's instructions:

      "To find your torso length, measure the distance between your seventh cervical vertebra and the shelf of your hipbones. Do this by standing up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Tilt your head forward and place your hands on your hips, thumbs to the back. With a flexible tape, have someone measure from the most prominent vertebra at the base of your neck to an imaginary line drawn between your thumbs. This will be your torso length."

      Their website has a diagram under the "fitting tab" that goes into more detail (http://www.granitegearstore.com/Blaze-AC-60-Ki--P223C7.aspx).

    • Is this pack waterproof?
    • Thank you for the question. No, this pack is not waterproof. It is treated with a DWR (Durable Water Repellent) so it can handle mist or a few sprinkles, but you'll need to use a pack cover if it's actually raining. Granite Gear's "Cloud Cover Pack Cover" is lightweight, tough, and totally waterproof. Size medium will fit the Blaze AC 60 perfectly (I've included the link below).

  • From Carol at 10/26/14 6:36 AM
    • What is the maximum load you recommend carrying in this backpack? Also, does it accommodate a standard plastic bear cannister?
    • Hey Carol,

      Thank you for your question.

      The maximum load recommended for the Granite Gear Blaze AC 60 Ki is 35lb.

      This backpack has no trouble accommodating a Backpackers Cache Bear Canister, one of the larger bear canisters available.

      Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.

      Best regards,
      Rich

Description
Granite Gear Blaze AC 60 Ki is a women's ultralight top loader with large stretch side pockets and a mammoth stretch woven front pocket. The Blaze AC 60 is Spartan in its simplicity and features engineered Air Current suspension. The Air Current suspension consists of a 3-dimensionally molded alloyed frame, Granite Gear's quickest torso length adjustment system, padded shoulder straps, and a swappable hip belt for a custom fit. The AC frame has molded air channels, works in conjunction with a molded foam pad and durable stretch mesh to aid in venting heat and moisture away from the back; allowing for natural evaporative cooling. The pack body is a simple, lidless top loader with a tall spindrift opening that can be cinched and rolled down tight for weather resistance and also expanded when extra space is needed. The arched Line-Loc compression system allows the load to be cinched tight in every direction (side, front, and top) as well as allowing additional gear to be lashed to the pack. The Line-Loc cord can easily be replaced if it wears out from extended use. Durable and versatile stretch mesh pockets on the bottom of the pack sides work well for water bottles, while the tall front center pocket is great for damp tarps or ultralight tents.
