Granite Gear Nimbus Core
Where to Buy
A completely new concept in backpack design. This pack started out with our quest to develop a pack that would carry a bear canister securely.
It does a nice job of this but in testing this piece we've found it's a sweet and versatile system for lots of different loads.
There are two full length lateral pockets that cinch around whatever you place in the CORE or center section of the pack, then a compression flap can be cinched down tight holding everything securely in place. We've found this center CORE section also works great for many other items that are hard to fit inside a conventional pack- tripods, fly rods, wet tents, as well as compressed items like sleeping bags.
Here's what other sites are saying:
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.

Most of Granite Gear's competition still use low cost HDPE plastic and an aluminum stay or two. Granite Gear's reengineered 3D TopoFlex frame is engineered to fit the topography of your back and mimic the way a back naturally flexes. The single pivot point attachment system on our shoulder strap and belt allow for a more precise fit and better freedom of movement while continuously supporting the load and directing it to your hips or shoulders and allowing some of the load to be carried throughout the back. Because of this system the load can be shifted to be carried by different muscle and skeletal groups. Granite Gear new Advection back panel allows for the air to flow over the back moving heat out while still maintaining significant contact and following the natural topography of the human back thus complimenting the ergonomic load carriage benefits of the TopoFlex frame and harness system.
The ingenious Granite Gear Nimbus Core pack unveils a striking new concept in pack design. Two full-length pockets cinch around a bear canister or whatever else you put in the pack's open center. Originally designed for hauling bear canisters, this open-core pack is also ideal for carrying other bulky gear such as a tripod, fly rod, wet tent or trail maintenance tools. TopoFlex frame mimics your back's natural curve; padded, precurved hipbelt and shoulder straps offer freedom of movement and let you comfortably distribute pack weight. Single pivot point on the harness provides freedom of movement; torso length adjustability fits a range of body sizes. Advection back panel lets air flow through, moving heat and moisture out while maintaining contact and following the topography of your back. Compression flap creates the front of the pack body; cinching tight at the top and sides to hold everything in the open core securely in place. Stretch-mesh side pockets are perfect for water bottles. The Granite Gear Nimbus Core pack is made of 70-denier ripstop and 210-denier Cordura(R) nylon.
