If packing ultralight for weekend backpacking trips is your modus operandi, you'll love the minimalist Granite Gear Virga 2 Backpack, which weighs in at just over a pound. Two ounces lighter and more comfortable than the original Virga, the Virga 2 combines a frameless suspension design with a lidless roll top, lightweight fabric, and smaller-size, 10mm webbing straps for valuable weight savings. You can load it down with up to 20 pounds of gear, and the padded shoulder straps and hip belt, along with a sternum strap and padding stay comfortably supportive and balance your load. The wrap-around compression straps secure and stabilize your gear and keep it from shifting around as you move. The backpack's extendable roll top offers extra room if your load starts to overflow, and once you roll it down and buckle it closed, it keeps your gear is protected without needing a bulky lid cover. A large stretch mesh front pocket and stretch side pockets hold items you'd like quick access to, and two tool loops on the back hold whatever array of tools you'd like to attach. Hang your hydration reservoir on the internal hanger, and route the drinking tube through your desired port. The backpack's durable Cordura nylon fabric with extra-durable reinforced sections will get you through many happy weekend excursions in the wild.
