Granite Gear's Nimbus Trace Access 85 is designed to carry 60lb loads (27Kg) comfortably and is relentlessly practical with front opening feature, among others. 

Granite Gear says:

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 mountain. 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.

Granite Gear make real Backpackers rucksacks! By that we mean they are relatively light have lots of large mesh pockets to stash gear - and are very comfortable over many days on the trail. The Nimbus range are for heavier loads 40lbs and over - if you are not going on a trip that demands that you carry this much then this pack is overkill - if you do need to carry this much then this pack is awesomely light - any other manufacturer would be recommending a 3 kilo pack to carry this kind of load.

We`ve sold lots of Granite Gear packs over the years and our customers love the comfort they provide - the new ranges of Nimbus and AC packs take the company`s products another step forward.

The weight of the Nimbus Trace pack can be reduced by around 250g by removing the lid in this mode the top rolls and is held in place by straps - perfectly adequate but could be vulnerable to water getting in. The Lid also converts to a bumbag for short outings from basecamp.

The Nimbus Trace Access improves on the Nimbus Trace by adding a front zippered opening to allow easy access to gear - all this adds weight but at around 2kg it still comes up lighter than many other smaller packs in this category.

Wonderful pack, with one drawback.

Sturdy frame harking to the rigid feel of their AC series frame, compared to the limp wristed VC series frame. Great compression / attachment capability. 'Officially' 85ltr but I do have my doubts. Main complaint? GG continue to insist on using that fragile stretch mesh for the base sides, a very vulnerable area. Following a one day off trail hike, I have hole damage on one side only 6 weeks after purchasing a £315 backpack. Reports of this come often enough for a rethink, GG.
