The name says
it all: 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.
