Just because you’re carrying a heavy load doesn’t mean your pack should add to the burden. The Crown VC 60 is spacious enough to hold enough gear for multiday hikes, but at just over 2 pounds it’s squarely in the ounce-counter weight class. A plastic framesheet evenly distributes weight, and this pack also has thick foam on the shoulder straps and hipbelt, an internal reservoir sleeve, and plenty of cordage on the outside for customizing your carry. Snag it at REI for 52 percent off while supplies last. Buy the Granite Gear Crown VC 60 for $95 Now
