Granite Gear Backpacking Packs Nimbus Trace Access 85 KI Backpack - Women's-Red/Moonmist-Short. Don't let the light weight of the pack fool you- the super rigid maple core frame sheet and exoskeleton belt are built to handle big loads.
From gear-intensive treks in the Pacific Northwest to accessing remote summits in the Rocky Mountains, the Granite Gear Nimbus Trace Access 85 Ki Women's Backpack will haul all the necessary gear for seriously remote objectives. Being the largest offering in the Nimbus line, this 85-liter pack swallows everything you need for a week-long trek with ease. Despite being lightweight and fairly minimalist in design, the Nimbus Trace sports a supportive 3D TopoFlex frame with pivot point attachment that distributes weight evenly along the hips, shoulders, and back. Lateral compression straps keep heavy loads secure, while the unique top and bottom opening grants access to deeply buried layers and gear when you need quick access on the trail. The detachable lid doubles as a waist pack when you need a small summit pack, or it can be left at home when you're looking to trim some weight from the pack. Gear loops secure either ice axes or trekking poles, making this Nimbus the ideal companion for forays into the alpine and range-crossing treks.
