Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent, rugged ultralight pack I took this pack on my Wonderland Trail loop. It is, by far, the most comfortable pack I’ve owned. I am by no means a super ultralight backpacker, but I try to be very mindful of weight. It handled the weight with ease and I never had discomfort. You do have to be careful of how heavy you pack it. On our result days you could feel the difference, however, I never packed it heavy enough to have issues. It is rugged. I abused the heck out of the outer pockets and had 0 issues. The mesh pockets are great for storing damp socks from accidental stream fording. My only complaint/comment is that there are holes for the compression straps in the side pockets, so don’t put your precious jolly ranchers in there lest you suffer an agonizing loss. Put them in the center pocket like a smart person. I wouldn’t suggest this for a first pack, or for someone who packs heavy. It simply isn’t made for that. But as my first ultralight pack, it has performed above and beyond expectations. For reference, I’m a thick chunk of woman. I’m 5’8, 175 of farm raised midwestern beef, and the regular fit me perfect. My man shoulders were super comfy in the pack and the belt was just right. Smaller framed people may have slight issues getting the belt small enough, but alas, I am not the right size to test that theory.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It weighs nothing I got old, so I went ultralight, so I can still go out in the woods. I carry less than half the weight I used to it makes the hills easier. If it gets to where I can't climb the hills with the lighter equipment I guess I can hike maybe Kansas?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I wanted and more Super light weight. Comfortable to wear when packed correctly and within intended weight range. More room than you will ever need for ultralight backpacking, in fact, wish the roll top was just a bit shorter. Best option into ultralight for the budget conscious.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect size! This is my first bag. Just started getting into backpacking and a friend recommended frameless packs. After doing some looking and light research I decided to go with this one. It's been on two overnights so far and it's been great! The biggest two things I wish it had (since I gave it 4/5) are pockets in the hip belt and hydration compatibility. But otherwise it's been a good first pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultra-lite Pack without compromising on features! This pack is a real sleeper because there are not many reviews out there on it. If you keep your total pack weight at 20 lbs (including food and water) or less you are going to love this thing. For just over a pound this pack has the most durable construction I have seen for this weight. I use a 1/8 in. foam pad inside the pack as the frame and my sleeping pad to go under my Nemo Tensor 3/4 air mat. Then I place my ursack food bag against the pad as it is the heaviest item in my pack with everything else pushed in without stuff sacks. A contractor bag lines the pack to keep everything dry. My base weight is usually between 10-12 lbs and after 2 days the pack is in the 15 ish range and carries like a dream. No frameless pack out there comes close to this in comfort and I have used most of the expensive cottage manufacture packs available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UL Top Choice I've used the Virga 2 now for several years and selected it based on reviews & ratings from ultralight blogs, etc. The capacity, quality of material, design, and functionality all are first-rate. The low weight and roll-top are the primary features that make this an ideal choice for someone who wants to reduce one of the "big three". It's not for everyone since there are no hip belt pockets or internal pockets. The hip belt isn't as beefy as other packs; but that's never been an issue with me. The stretch fabric on the external pockets is exceptional. I don't know what GG does to make this fabric so durable and flexible; but it works. My last outing was wet, wet, wet, and the pack dried out fairly well. It rides very well despite not having lots of bells & whistles in terms of adjustment, padding, etc. of more robust packs. But, it's the low weight that really makes this pack worth the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal ultralite pack First, a word of caution: you have to keep your total pack weight at or under 20 pounds; above that, the pack hangs on your shoulders like a tired 3-year-old. I'm carrying 13 or 14 pounds for a weekend, which leaves me enough capacity to carry a couple of extra quarts of water to a dry camp without overwhelming the suspension. Sizing is a bit on the small side: I have about at 20.5" torso - just at the intersection of the regular and long sizes. For me, the long was the better fit. For longer trips, with extra food or cold weather clothing, I switch to the more robust Granite Gear Crown VC 60. I liked the original Virga, but felt it was limited by the lack of a padded hipbelt. Finally, they added one, and now it's perfect. The pack is simplicity itself. The three stretch pockets swallow all the stuff I need during the day: snack, lunch, water bottle, water filter, map and compass, and toilet kit. If I've got wet rain gear or tent, I can put them in the long stretch pocket on the back to dry while I walk. I really don't miss the lid pocket or hipbelt pockets, and really like the dry bag-style closure. The load lifters are a functional addition, keeping the load pulled in toward your back and, with the proper improvised frame, do help transfer the load to your hips where the lightly padded hipbelt can support the weight. I take one of two approaches to adding a framesheet. Method 1: This is the simpler method. I use 4 sections of a Z-Lite pad, folded 2-wide, as a frame. I run it along the back panel of the pack (conveniently colored orange as a pattern), putting the top of the pad at the level of the load lifter attachment point. I lock it in place with my sleeping bag, put my food and stove high and close to my back, and then fill ill in around it with clothing, tent, and inflatable sleeping pad. In camp, the frame becomes a sit pad. Method 2: This is more complicated, but provides more comfort and versatility. I use my inflatable pad (72" Z-Lite) and a Compack chair kit as a frame. I insert the pad into the chair, with the valve sticking up above the top opening a couple of inches, and the foot of the pad extending out the bottom opening. Then I fold the bottom half over the top of the chair, and fold the chair in half. Then I fold each long side in toward the middle, until until I have a rectangle roughly the size of the orange back panel. I slide it down the back panel (chair stays on the inner side of the pack), lock it in place with sleeping bag, and pack as described in Method 1. Then the finishing touch: I inflate the pad with two or three breaths to stiffen the frame and expand it into the pack to solidify the load. When I get to camp, I don't even have to take the pad out of the chair: I inflate it about half full and use it as a chair in camp (folded in half, or allowing the bottom to unfold and turn it into a lounge chair. Then, when I'm ready for bed, I just unclip the straps on the side of the chair, finish inflating it, lay it flat, and go to bed. I never have to take it out of the chair. Next morning, I just let the air out, and pack up. Pure simplicity, pure comfort, pure function: if you're into ulralight, this is your pack.
