Granite Gear - Crown V.C. 60

The successor to the cult classic Granite Gear Vapor Trail, but with upgrades. Introducing the Crown V.C. 60, with Vapor Current Suspension technology. Weighing less than the Vapor Trail at 2 lbs. 2 oz. (1 lb. 13 oz. with the frame removed), the Crown V.C. 60 is a top loader with a secure roll-top closure that provides easy access.

The simple lidless design can be upgraded with Granite Gear's optional LineLoc lid. The pack body also features LineLoc compression, a voluminous stretch mesh front pocket as well as stretch mesh side pockets. The 100 Denier Sil-Nylon Hybrid Cordura Brand Fabric body is ultralight, but proven to go the distance. the 210 Denier Cordura Brand Fabric Reinforcements provide the strength needed in key areas.

My Go-To-Pack
I have 7 packs-from expedition to day packs. The VC is my go-to pack for multi-day and long distance hiking. I replaced my Vapor Trail after 1,000 AT miles. I love this pack....great buy... Review by Q-tip
I love this pack! It's got what you need.
I'm just getting into backpacking, and I checked out a lot of backpacks, and this one seemed like it had what I needed. This pack is great, very stable, compresses down easily, hugs my back well and is very lightweight. Material and quality of workmanship is great, padding is good, not overly cushy like some manufacturers, but I find it more comfortable because it's not oversized and pillowed. One large compartment, 3 pockets, one large and two small. Very simple, handles 25 - 30 lbs well. Review by John
Down Size
Exchanged the (Lg) Backpack for a (Med) lost some space, needed to down size on my load, shoulder harness straps were some what short, Also exchanged the (med) belt for a (Lg) belt, carries the load very well. All in all the pack is very well made.. Review by Ridge Runner
Great Pack
Its just a very good designed simple pack. Its very light but with decent support (stated is upto 16kg) and after using one with about 14 kg in I reckon thats pretty much accurate. It is just one large main compartment thats very water resistant, I might seam seal it and see if I can do away with a pack cover. The thing I really like is the usual oversized buckles etc haver been minimised to save weight but are still feel good quality. The framesheet can be removed via a zippered compartment to save even more weight. There seems to be just enough padding on the hipbelt to provide a balance between comfort and conforming to your body shape and the pack sits very close to your back giving excellent load carrying comfort. It has 2 mesh side pockets, 1 large back pocket and 2 small shoulder strap pockets. Reckon this pack is a real winner for less than 1 kg. Well done Granite Gear. Review by Keith
Exactly what I've been looking for...
I've been using a 6lb. TNF Outrider 75 which is a good heavy load pack, very comfortable and has never let me down but, I wanted something for 2/3 day summer trips to Oregon's Cascades that was light. After searching packs for a year this pack was my choice. I can't say enough about the way it fits. I'm 6', 185lbs. and it clings to my back perfectly. Excellent balance of durability vs. weight, Features are minimum but the ones I really need (ie; pockets are good size, outside pocket for a wet rain fly, hole in top of left pocket to hold fuel bottle upright etc.). Plenty of volume inside especially considering its weight. For me, the waist belt and shoulder straps are comfortable (and I'm an old guy that likes comfort) and I can shift the load back and forth between the two easily. If you want sealed zippers, side entry, lids and bells and whistles this is probably not the pack for you. But If your looking for only what you really need (and use) in a comfortable lightweight package you might want to check this one out. Review by Andre'

Questions & Answers

One of the nice features on Granite Gear packs is that you can swap-out the hip belt and shoulder straps for size. What is the standard sizing of each? How do I specify the hip belt and shoulder strap sizing when I place an order?
Question by: Jason on May 10, 2012 6:21:08 PM
I see one review that says it's good for a 25-30 lb load. What does Granite Gear say? I'm always in required bear canister country (Southern Sierra Nevada), carry 3L of water, and filter. With a weeks food I'm 35-40 fully loaded. Thoughts? How will this suspension hold up?
Question by: Dave Canady on Sep 8, 2016 11:44:00 AM
I need to swap the Granite Gear medium waist belt for an XL waist belt prior to shipping. Are you guys able to do this?
Question by: Ryan on Mar 20, 2016 8:01:00 AM
Having looked on other sites at The Granite Gear Crown VC 60 and noticing the size tabs(right side) some are upside down and others right side up and reading some reviews concerning the hip belt wearing, makes me wonder about the the quality/quality control of this product(Backpack). Should the belt on my backpack wear(inside),can the belt be returned for another??
Question by: Tim Rogers on Jun 1, 2012 7:58:35 AM
How deep in the main body 'compartment'? What are the approximate front to back and side to side? Or put another way, how large and item can I put in this pack? TIA, Sid
Question by: Sid Post on Sep 25, 2016 7:52:00 PM
My hip size is about 39-40.
Should I use the XL hipbelt or the L size (when I'm hiking ,Im loosing very quickly some weight)?
Question by: nahum on Dec 22, 2013 3:15:09 AM
specs say interchangeable belts. hip belts? so if someone was to buy this back then after 6 months they lose a bunch of weight, they could order a smaller size hip belt?
