Granite Gear Nimbus Trace 62 Review:


Very nice pack, abysmal customer service

First impression: it's a nifty pack. The use of soft stretch fabric on the frame and straps makes for a very comfy interface between you and the bag, and allows for airflow.

Bag is big enough, but not cavernous. I like the pockets on the outside, though the big stretch pocked on the front could use a zipper for better access.

This pack has the best lid/waist pack I've ever seen, with compression straps included in the belt to secure a load. Having webbing for pouches on the belt is also much nicer than the uselessly-tiny pockets other manufacturers put on their belts. (I carry a pair of nalgene bottles there). I also REALLY like having a pack that's in earth tones, for those times you might not want to be as visible.

For cons, it would be nice to have some compression straps on the bottom panel, and I'd prefer it if all the compression cords had side-release buckles. The hydration pouch was designed by an idiot; it's so tight that I can't get my HAND in there, let alone any kind of hydration system. I'm probably going to cut that fabric out. Neither of these are deal-breakers.

All told, it's the best pack I've seen yet; light, comfy, and versatile.
