The Granite Gear Women's Perimeter 50 incorporates the latest evolution in the Minnesota-based pack brand's focus on fit. The ultra-lightweight multi-day pack has the streamlined features and trail-smart access you can always count on from Granite Gear and boasts an innovative suspension system with easy-to-use micro adjustments to customize the pack to fit you best.
Despite only weighing just 3 pounds, the pack utilizes a lightweight Spring Steel outline frame and a PE framesheet to provide comfortable load-hauling capability up to 40 pounds! Truly unique clip-in ladder locks on the backpanel allow you to not only adjust torso length (15"-18" on the Short Torso size and 18"-21" on the Regular Torso) but also to adjust the shoulder width. Secure anchor points ensure that the suspension stays set exactly where you decide. Keeping with the adjustability theme, the pack's dual-density women's specific Re-Fit waistbelt has a broad fit range of 24"-40". Combine these features with a contoured, padded harness, load lifter straps, and an adjustable sternum strap and you've got a pack that caters to hikers and backpackers of all shapes and sizes.
Constructed of high-tenacity Robic nylon, the main 3000+ cubic inch packbag has a roll-top closure with secure crossing webbing straps. A low-profile lid has a small, zippered pocket and can be removed entirely if not needed or if you are trying to cut ounces. There is a large stretch mesh lower pocket and a smaller stretch-woven pocket just above it. An additional flap running across the bottom of the pack can be used to carry a sleeping pad. If not in use, it sits flush to the pack to avoid any snags.
Other features include stretch woven side pockets, side and front compression straps that securely cinch down the pockets and double as gear lash points, large zippered hipbelt pockets, and an internal sleeve and drinking tube pass-through that make the pack hydration compatible (hydration system not included).
