New to Granite Gear’s line of barrier backpacks is the Saunders. Constructed with Repelaweave fabric and a Taurpalite bottom in a tall and slim design, the Saunders protects and carries books and supplies much more effectively than conventional backpacks. The stylishly simple design of the Saunders beautifully accents its many important features. Features like the Tricot lined, barrier zippered stash pocket, Gear-Tec laptop sleeve, an organizer and other compartments make it an incredibly practical backpack. Acknowledging the ultimate importance of comfort in a backpack, Granite Gear designed the Saunders with a high density EVA foam shoulder harness and a fully padded back panel to be both unobtrusive and comfortable. Like the many other packs in the Barrier backpack line, the Saunders is a pinnacle of protection, durability, comfort, and style and the perfect companion for everyday use.
