User Review: Granite Gear Nimbus Latitude Ki
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $200
I love the way this pack opens completely up. When it's lying on the straps, there are 2 zippers that zip completely open to allow access to the top as well as the bottom, so if I want my tent or sleeping back from the bottom, I can unzip the bottom section and access them. If I want something from the middle, I lay it down and unzip it from either the top or the bottom, pull out what I need without having to pull out half of the items in my pack.
- easy access
- many pockets
- a bit heavier 3lbs
I absolutely love this pack. Everything about it screams comfort. I have used it for 3 summers and it has about 2000 miles on the AT and is still going strong. I have a slight tear in one of the water bottle pockets from being thrown down a rocky descent (I couldn't wear it down because the space was too small) and it bounced off a side wall tearing/scuffing the pocket.
The capacity is perfect. I am able to get everything inside and nothing is outside of the pack, although there are lashing straps. I did attach an outside pocket to store my first aid items in, but that is the only thing extra I did.
