A unique and versatile option for true backcountry enthusiasts, the Nimbus Core effectively and comfortably carries a bear canister (not included) or other sometimes awkward pieces of gear. The modular design can efficiently haul small or large loads making the Nimbus Core a good option for day hikes or multi-day trips.
Designed to fit varying torso lengths, the Nimbus Core is available in Short (14"-18" torso length) and Regular (18"-22") sizes. Two large side compartments provide a surprising amount of storage and wrap-around an open interior that perfectly accommodates standard bear canisters. This space can also effectively haul large items like tents, tripods, large sleeping bags or any gear stashed within stuff sacks or compression bags. A vertical front panel further secures gear in place and houses an additional large zippered mesh pocket. A well-designed external compression strap system allows you to securely cinch everything in place.
Made of a reinforced composite material, the Nimbus Core's Topoflex framesheet is ready-made for heavy hauling. The streamlined, contoured framesheet balances rigid support with flexible response, allowing the Nimbus Core to move with you while keeping your load balanced and secure. The height of the framesheet can be adjusted to account for varying torso lengths. The lumbar portion of the framesheet functions like a shock-absorbing spring and enhances comfort and performance. A pivoting, cushioned hipbelt helps to further balance the weight of the pack without limiting mobility. A fully padded backpanel provides a layer of cushioning and comfort. Adjustable padded shoulder straps, an adjustable sternum strap and load-lifter straps combine to further optimize fit.
To guarantee that the Nimbus Core fits like a glove, Granite Gear offers swappable hipbelts and shoulder harnesses. The Small hipbelt fits waists ranging from 26"-30", the Medium hipbelt fits waists ranging from 30"-34" and the Large hipbelt fits waists ranging from 34"-38". The appropriate shoulder harness size is based on the girth measurement of your chest. The Small harness fits chest sizes ranging from 27"-34", the Medium harness fits chest sizes ranging from 34"-40", the Large harness fits chest sizes ranging from 40"-46" and the Extra Large harness fits chest sizes ranging from 46"-52".
