Granite Gear developed the unique Nimbus Core Backpack to give you easy access to larger, bulkier items. Carry your dry sacks, bear canisters, your tent, and/or a sleeping bag, as well as an odd-shaped item like a tripod, cinched down in the central easy-access storage space. Your clothing and other gear go in the full-length side zip pockets. No matter what you pack into the Nimbus Core, you’ll carry up to fifty pounds with ease thanks to the 3D TopoFlex frame that features a molded composite Y-shaped frame to offer an excellent combination of flexibility, support, and the ability to customize your fit.

  • Advection back panel conforms to the shape of your back while at the same time allowing cool air to circulate
  • Linelock side compression straps let you easily and quickly cinch a partially empty pack to your back for greater stability and comfort
  • Tool loops help get your gear up and out of the way
  • Two stretch side zip pockets, two stretch side drop-in pockets, and a massive front stretch pocket give you plenty of places to stash items you want easy access to
  • Floating pack lid comes off to save weight or to use it as a lumbar daypack
  • See size chart for measurement information; torso length can be further adjusted in small increments for a custom fit, and the ‘short’ size can be adjusted for shoulder width as well
