The Nitro from the Black Diamond Velocity Series is designed for on-the-go performance from running to biking and hiking. The pack is built with pared down simplicity yet has all the essentials without the weight.
The Nitro has reACTIV suspension, Swing-Arm shoulder straps and a reACTIV hipbelt for added ease of movement and unsurpassed comfort whilst on the move. The shoulder straps slide through the bottom of the pack with low friction cable and housing and each strap is linked to the other by the cable, which maintains an even balanced load across the shoulders. The flexible reACTIV hipbelt allows comfort and mobility in all directions and the whole system enables the user to carry loads over long distances easily and in total comfort.
Other great features include an Open Air back panel a zippered panel access, trekking pole/ice axe loops; front, side and hipbelt stretch pockets and it is Hydration compatible with an external access hydration sleeve.
The Nitro is a breathable mid-volume day tripper pack which is lightweight and flexible enough to run or bike or hike with all day.
