View Full Version : Granite Gear Backpack for Two Give Away

I have two Granite Gear Backpacks just sitting around that I'm offering up for a give away. Crown2s, one standard and one womans fit. The standard is a regular torso and the woman's fit is a short. I picked these up last year for my wife and I to have some larger volume packs than our SWD custom packs. We didn't end up needing them though and I can't exactly remember why I thought we would. The standard has never been used and the woman's was used for one overnight. Ideally this would be for a couple (or father/daughter, mother/son ) looking to get into backpacking or that want to upgrade to lighter packs or whatnot. It doesn't necessarily have to be a man/woman combo but that's the way they're set up. However please be part of a "duo". I'll provide the manufacturer's link for each below.

Simply post a verision of "I'm in" to enter. Winner will be selected from random number generator based on position of post. 1st "I'm in" post is 1, 2nd "I'm in" is 2 etc, etc. I'll close the thread and choose a winner this Sunday, July 26th at 9 PM CST.

Granite Gear Crown 2 Standard (https://www.granitegear.com/outdoor/backpacks/multi-day-backpacks/crown2-series-packs/crown2-60-pack-2668.html)

I'll take the crown standard.

I think you're supposed to say, "I'm in" to be entered in the raffle.

I'm in......my children thank you.

All entries noted so far. Thanks Roche, I didn't think about that combo, a pair of kids is great.

Thanks Silvr for the clarification.

I'm in.

I've been researching options for a lighter pack than the big, heavy beast I'm using now. And my wife has been complaining that she never gets to go on my backpacking trips with me because she has no pack. With these GG's, we would both get out more, so this would be a win-win for us.
Well actually it would be a win-win for my wife ... I kinda like going on my solo hikes! :laugh:
(But I suppose it WOULD be nice to have her along sometimes ... marital bonding and all that ...) :rolleyes:

I'm in if it's in the correct spirit of the post. I have a friend looking for a pack, and my wife could use a 'women's' pack.

Woo Hoo! Believe it or not, this is the first time I've ever "won" anything. I've gotten gifts from folks before, but this is more exciting in some strange way.

I kinda feel bad for everyone else because I've been in the "darn, I didn't get it" shoes so, so many times before. I even stopped buying scratch-offs because I never once even got one of those $5 or $10 wins.

My wife is probably going to be more excited than me when I tell her. We'll both be looking forward to getting out in the woods with them

Thanks so much for putting this offer out there! The generosity among Hammock Forum members (not just gear, but shared ideas, and shared experience, etc.) continues to amaze me.

PM is coming.
