Granite Gear Nimbus Trace 62
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $205
Simply put, this is the most comfortable pack I've ever owned. It fits great, allows for maneuvering around boulders and trees, and ventilates well.
I really like the new storage pockets on the outside. I tend to use the long skinny one down the middle for my rain gear.
The new kevlar strings for compression straps have their pros and cons. The downfall is that one of the ends popped off. I could see how this would bug me. I just don't like anything falling off my pack. Not a biggy though, you can just tie off the end and move on.
Where to Buy
We incorporated the key elements of our award winning, trail tested Ozone pack and added stretch woven upper side zipper pockets, a center lateral stretch mesh pocket and improved the lower side stretch pockets. Plus, we added a floating & removable lid for those times when you really want to keep your weight down. Add our new cooler Advection back panel and you have yourself a sweet hiking companion that will comfortably carry 40+ pounds!
The arched Lineloc compression system saves weight over webbing and allows the load to be cinched tight in every direction side, front and top as well as allowing additional gear to be lashed to the pack. The LineLoc cord can easily be replaced by the user if it wears out from extended use.
Durable and versatile stretch mesh pockets on the bottom of the sides work well for water bottles and the tall front center pocket is great for damp tarps or ultralight tents.
