Superior Purchase Review by Brent

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)
