“These are the last regular torso Vapor Trail packs we have, so once they’re gone - they’re gone for good," says Granite Gear. If you've used this pack and want a spare, or if you've read reviews and want to give it a try now's the time. Excellent comfort, low weight, simple but design that's built to last; the Vapor Trail is an excellent backpack for overnights to through hikes of hundreds or thousands of miles.
So you’re ready to take the next step. You’ve gotten your pack weight down to 30 pounds or less. The Vapor Trail uses a high-density polyethylene frame that helps distribute the load evenly over your back and onto your hips. This pack has fixed (not interchangeable) shoulder straps that are well padded and it comes standard with the Ultralight Packer hip belt available in a range of sizes for men and women. The pack is fully hydration compatible with an internal sleeve and port. Reports from our AT thru-hiker pack testers suggest that by the end of last season roughly 40% of AT thru-hikers were carrying the Vapor Trail, largely due to its exceptional comfort.

Roll Top Loader
The concept of our original Vapor Trail and Nimbus Ozone is to eliminate everything that adds weight without adding to the comfort. The lid was the first thing to go. Next came the zippers. What’s left is a top loader with an extended spindrift collar that can be rolled down for waterproofness, and a unique cross strapping system for load security. Weight is further reduced by using lightweight fabrics in the pack body. Durability is accomplished by engineering the compression strap to tie into a heavier arch panel in front.
