These traits include, but are not limited to: an obsession in certain intramural sports; an all natural diet; flaunting intense camping gear such as ropes or carabiners; unnecessarily wearing outdoor gear made for extreme weather (North Face, REI, Mountain Hardwear); an obsession with Chacos and wearing them for activities they were not designed for; an uncontrollable love for ultimate frisbee; the desire to hammock in populated areas; the drinking out of nalgene bottles; mountain-men beards; a taste in music that the normal population (including the granola poser himself) would naturally find unattractive; hippi-eske attire such as bandanas and shoelessness.
These activities, and many more that remain unlisted, are stressed by granolas so that onlookers might look at them with a jealous and slightly impressed eye.

Jim: "This is psychology class. You're a granola poser"
