Most lightweight packs are basically sacks with straps. At 2lb 10oz the Granite Gear Latitude Vapor Backpack rivals the weight of those no-fun, no-feature bags, but gives you easy access for ease of use and enjoyable travels. The ingenious panel access system can be opened from the top or bottom, allowing you to get to every inch of your pack, so you can quickly find your headlamp as the sun is setting. Internal compression straps keep your gear from moving around, and the stretchy zip panel lets you stuff the Vapor to the brim. The Latitude Vapors frame and suspension system allow you to carry up to 30 pounds comfortably and its the perfect size for day hikes or an ultralight weekend trip. Finally, a pack that lets you go light but doesnt take away all the features you want.
