Quiet forest trails, deserted summits and sunny red-rock scrambles-these are the natural habitats of the 22-liter Black Diamond Nitro pack. Built with a pared-down simplicity and the ideal day-hiking feature set, the Nitro carries the essentials with maximum comfort thanks to its reACTIV suspension system with high-flow OpenAir backpanel, shoulder straps and waistbelt. Stretch organizer pockets stash you small items, and a raincover pocket (raincover not included) stores your pack cover when the weather is clear.

  • reACTIV suspension with high-flow OpenAir backpanel, shoulder straps and waistbelt
  • Zippered panel access
  • Trekking pole/ice axe loops, bike light clip
  • Front, side and hipbelt stretch pockets and raincover pocket (raincover not included)
  • Hydration compatible with external access hydration sleeve

WHY ACTIVE suspension?

WHY ACTIVE suspension?

Black Diamond packs built with our award-winning active suspension systems—ergoACTIV, ergoACTIV XP, reACTIV and reACTIV XP—are unparalleled in comfort, efficiency and load transfer. Because the shoulder straps and hipbelt move with you, friction and hot spots are eliminated. The pack’s load stays perfectly balanced at all times—without adjustment—and allows your body to move naturally in any direction. This results in a more efficient, comfortable, longer stride—meaning you can cover more ground, more quickly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by comfortable pack, clumsy hydration sleeve This pack includes comfort features that you would normally hope for on larger packs...all while keeping the weight to a reasonable level. It even includes the reACTIV suspension system...a nice feature if you ever load this up. My only serious complaint is with the external access hydration sleeve. This is more of a deep pocket that is positioned between the back panel and the main compartment. It's a bit hard to access (you can barely fit your hand in it), and it hasn't any way of sealing out the rain. I've noticed this same clumsy external hydration sleeve design on some other packs. I hope it's a fashion that goes away...or is at least improved upon. Personally, I like having a simple hydration sleeve in the main compartment. When it's not used for a hydration pouch, it can be a useful divider pocket for a tablet or gloves or hat, etc. That aside, overall the pack has a clean design, more comfortable than others, especially in the 20 liter range. If Black Diamond simplified the hydration sleeve by bringing it back inside, I'd give it five stars. August 1, 2013
