Granite Gear Backpacks is a producer of backpacks, based in Two Harbors, Minnesota.

Many of their backpacks are made with a molded, 3-dimensional frameplate. Released in 1996, it is made of composite carbon fiber and plastics and is designed to support the actual ruck of the backpack without other frame stays.[1][2][3]

The company released a backpack designed for ultrahiker Justin "Trauma" Lichter, who logged more than 10,000 miles of hiking between November 2005 and 2006.[4] Another group sponsored currently are "Greg and Deia", a pair hiking the Andes Mountain range,[5]
