The Nimbus Access FZ 38000  is designed for those overnight escapes into the backcountry where lightweight and pack comfort are paramount to having fun. We just want to give our readers a little introduction to the Nimbus Access FZ, leading up to a full review. We’ve had it on the trail already, and what we like best so far is the comfort and confidence we experienced with the fit of this pack.

With about 40-pounds of water, essential gear, and camera equipment on each trek so far, the Nimbus Access FZ is one of the most comfortable backpacks we’ve had the opportunity to review.

Nimbus means it has a 3D Tepex Nimbus style framesheet: the best-fitting, most comfortable and durable frame on the market. Access means a panel loading system that makes packing and unpacking a breeze. FZ means it is leaner and meaner than most. Light Packs, the pack category that means it is designed for the backpacker that travels light (not ultralight). The main differences between the Nimbus Light Packs and the Nimbus Ultralight Packs are the beefier fabrics and the addition of a hip belt with an exoskeleton of HDPE plastic that supports more weight without sagging, and an external lid. Finally, 3800 means 3800 cubic-inch capacity.
