Details

The largest model in the Nimbus family, this load gobbling pack will carry all you need for long trips, or hold the gear needed for tackling the big mountains. Don’t let the light weight of the pack fool you—the super rigid maple core framesheet and exoskeleton belt are built to handle the big loads.

Our 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 straps and belts allows not only a more precise fit and enhanced freedom of movement; It supports and more equally redistributes your load along your hips, shoulders, and back! Now made with a maple-core, composite laminate which is both lighter and offers more longitudinal rigidity.

Our Advection Back Panel compliments the ergonomic carriage benefits of the Topoflex gram and harness system by encouraging heat transfer and dissipation while simultaneously using the natural symmetry of the back.

  1. Superior Purchase Review by Brent

    Function

    I took this pack for a 5 day, 50 mile trip through the Wind Rivers and have listed out the pros and cons I perceived. While not perfect, this bag is the best I have ever seen for my needs. During my hike I spent some time with one of this year’s 300 annual hikers of the 3,100 mile continental divide trail (CDT). He likewise loved the Nimbus Access he was using. I am very glad I made this purchase.
    Pros:
    Excellent adjustability of the straps to my body and the gear.
    Super comfortable hip belt. After 50 miles in 5 days across rugged terrain, my hips still feel great. Other bags I have owned leave my hips sore after much shorter trips even though they have thicker belt padding.
    Shoulder straps were comfortable, highly adjustable and sleek.
    Maple support frame is super adjustable and fit my back contour well
    Back padding system was super cool and dryer than my previous packs
    Several pounds lighter than my other similar sized back packs.
    Hydration tube access openings and routing options were perfect.
    It seems like I can carry a lot more in and strapped on the outside of the pack as compared to my previous 90 liter bags.
    Easy access to gear regardless of where it is stored.
    The internal and external straps kept the pack under control when jumping rocks, balancing across fallen trees and dealing with other realities in the back country.
    Water proof design is great not having to worry about pulling a rain cover over the pack when it rains.
    The fact that this pack is available with different size waist, shoulder strap and torso length options to fit me was a major plus.
    Cons:
    Need lid loops on all 4 corners to accommodate a solar panel more elegantly
    Straps on top need to be about an inch longer for super tall interior loads.
    Hydration sleeve is a little snug and could benefit from pleats. (Posted on 8/3/2016)

How to choose and adjust your pack for a proper fit



What torso length should I get?

To find your torso length, measure the distance between your seventh cervical vertebra and the shelf of your hipbones. Do this by standing up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Tilt your head forward and place your hands on your hips, thumbs to the back. With a flexible tape, have someone measure from the most prominent vertebra at the base of your neck to an imaginary line drawn between your thumbs. This will be your torso length.


Torso Lengths

Short Torso 14” to 18”
Regular Torso 18” to 22”

NOTE: Each framesheet has fine adjustment settings spaced in one inch increments to further fine-tune your fit. If you are an 18” torso try the short torso first.


What size hipbelt?

Our Ultralight Pack Belt is standard equipment on all of our Ultralight Packs (except Virga) and all packs with the Vapor Suspension. This belt is a “soft” belt. It has no plastic exoskeleton like our other belts. It is lighter and more comfortable when carrying smaller loads of 40 pounds or less. Although it is our simplest interchangeable belt, it still boasts the Pivot Point connection (except on Vapor Suspension Packs), hip stabilizers, dual density foam and a stretch woven fabric. ( Not Available in XL Size)

Hip Belt Sizing
Small 26"-30"
Medium 30"-34"
Large 34"-38"
XLarge 38"-42"
Women's belts are sculpted to fit the increased angle of women's hips

 

What size shoulder strap?

For a truly custom fit on our Stratus and Nimbus packs you can swap out shoulder straps. To find the ideal shoulder strap size, measure your chest. Our shoulder straps fit both men and women well.

Shoulder Strap Sizing
Small 26"- 34"
Medium 34"- 40"
Large 40"- 46"
XLarge 46"- 52"
