The Granite Gear Crown 2 38 Litre Rucksack is a lighter, more compact update to the best-selling 60-liter Crown2 backpack. It has many of the same features but compresses down to 18L. It’s a good option for day hikers and space-savvy thru-hikers.
Granite Gear says:
Introducing the all-new Granite Gear Crown2 38, an ultralight yet ultra-comfortable multi-day pack. This slimmed down version of our thru-hiker favorite, the Crown2 60, boasts our patent-pending full adjustable Re-Fit hip belt, our new and innovative Vapor Current Mark 2 compression molded PP frame sheet with molded foam back panel, and bonus lid (removable), all while weighing in at 2.1 lbs (without lid). For ultralight loads, the frame sheet can be removed lowering the weight to 1.6 lb. The Crown2 38 has a fixed torso length.
The Granite Gear Crown 2 38 Litre Rucksack answers the call for a smaller multi-day backpack that adjusts to fit the needs of day hikers to experienced thru-hikers. A smaller version of the highly-coveted and very successful Crown2 60, the 38 liter backpack preserves all the design features of its counterpart and weighs just 1006g (without lid).
Similar to the 60-liter version, the pack’s front and side multi-compression straps allow the capacity to be reduced roughly 20-liters when needed. This is a versatile capacity range from 38-liters down to 18-liters.
