Weather does not like those electronics, school books, or ten page English essays. Imagine getting caught in a sudden downpour on your way to turn in that essay. You run, but by the time you duck into class you know it's too late, pulling your pack open you cringe at the mess of soggy, gummed papers that meets your searching fingers. Maybe the Professor will extend the deadline. Maybe not. Now, imagine your essay sitting dry and comfortable in an extremely hard-wearing, weather repellant work-horse of a pack. The outcome would be much different, wouldn't it? Which story would you rather live? Let the Vernon pack from Granite Gear write your school story. It guarantees happy endings. Made from Repelaweave and Taurpalite fabrics it is tough as nails while a raised back panel and breathable padded shoulder harness ensures all day carry comfort. Split ingeniously into multiple compartments this 30.25 liter gear-carrying armadillo boasts a multi-pocket organizer, a Barrier zippered Tricot lined stash pocket, and a Gear-Tec computer sleeve. Cinch your load tight with two outer compression straps, stash that water in the exterior hydration pouches, and carry with a confidence etched in granite.
