A bag that can be used as a travel and school bag in one not only serves a double purpose but is also extremely convenient. Granite Gear bags are an internationally respected brand that matches purpose with weight, comfort and durability. Their award-winning backpacks and accessories have now reached our shores and for sure will be a choice option for both travelers and students.
Conceived by two buddies on a camping trip in the late 1980s, Granite Gear traces its humble beginnings back to the placid network of wild waterways etched through the arctic forest that make up the Boundary Waters between Minnesota and Ontario.
We got these 2 Granite Gear bags and of course, Jael claimed the black trolley right away.
Granite Gear Bags for Travel: the All-Weather Backpacker
My Champ bag (Petal) is a nice bright pink and yellow colored bag. At first glance it seemed too loud for me but I like the femininity and when it comes to traveling it makes it easier to spot. I used both bags during my recent weekend away.
The things that usually fail in a bag are the zippers but considering that these are particularly armed with Barrier-zippers it shouldn’t be a problem. They worked smoothly for me.
