Two Harbors, MN - Granite Gear, experts in backpack design, has applied their extensive knowledge in load-carrying technology to their expanded Campus collection. This spring, they’re releasing four new backpacks and one messenger bag, each available in new color ways and patterns, and each designed to provide the utmost comfort.
Maintaining the same trail-tested, load-carrying technology as their award-winning multi-day packs, the Campus collection bags are designed with a tall and slim profile. This ergonomic design keeps the weight closer to the center of gravity providing greater comfort to the back of the wearer.
"In 2015, we’re bringing packs to the market that offer a unique take on the traditional campus pack,” said Granite Gear’s Senior Director of Design and Development Mike Meyer. “Our Campus collection addresses the need for comfort, style and a quality, lifetime guarantee in backpacks.”ection bags are designed with a tall and slim profile. This ergonomic design keeps the weight closer to the center of gravity providing greater comfort to the back of the wearer.
Both the backpacks and the C-1 messenger bag feature:
- BARRIER Water-Repellence using durable Repelaweave fabrics
- Durable water-repellent zippers
- Barrier zippered, tricot-lined pocket for valuables
- Abrasion and extreme water resistant Tarpaulite fabric to protect gear from the elements
- Gear-Tec technology protection to keep laptops, tablets, and electronics safe and secure
- Density foam padded shoulder straps, fully padded back panels and adjustable compression straps
