Due in September 2006, the Nimbus Meridian joins Granite Gear's Light Backpack series that is designed to carry a sizeable load with comfort. This pack is a thru-hikers' delight, as demonstrated by Justin Lichter's odyssey across North America, carrying it 8000 miles (so far). It's also dead on for the lightweight backpacker. This remarkable pack is lighter than most of the competition in its class, yet it's durable, loaded with usable features, and comfortably carries a substantial load.
