Sure, we all came here looking at the pack weight, ultra fabric and pockets on pockets on pockets, but what made me fall in love with this pack was the stuff that’s not on a spec sheet.
Details like the absurdly wide opening, variability of shoulder strap setup and comfy-as-heck carrying position really take this pack from a stat sheet wonder to a mile crushing partner-in-crime.
Forgot to put your toothbrush away before hitting the trail? No problem.
Gotta dig way down to get your, er, first aid kit? No problem. Massive tree down that requires climbing? No problem.
The build quality coming out of this shop is, very simply, unrivaled.
I love the customization you can do with this pack . It’s is very comfortable to wear. I really like the bottom pocket .
I would definitely buy another one.
The pack performs admirably in every task I've thrown at it so far. Whether that's on an overnight backpacking trip with a minimal camp setup, but a metric ton of beer and big league chew... while leading stream cleanups where I need to be able to quickly pack out trash and also carry tons of spearmint gum to flood my sinuses with fresh smells to offset the horrible bog water... or even while I'm out grocery shopping to carry back my finds from Trader Joes including rare types of Korean bubblegum (mango!)... the Nashville Pack Cutaway does it all. My only complaint is that even though the team behind the Cutaway regularly enjoy bubblegum in the shop while building these totally tubular packs, they thoughtlessly didn't think to include a pack of gum with my bubblegum-themed Very Berry Ultragrid Cutaway. For shame! Great backpack other than this oversight.
In a market saturated with many amazing yet similar UL packs, the cutaway stands in a class of its own. Once you hike with all of these pockets I don't understand how anyone could go back to a normal pack. You can stuff the bottom pocket with thousands of calories of snacks, have water and other necessities comfortable and organized in the front, aaand reach the back to stuff layers TP and chargers. I carried a cutaway for the northern 1600 miles of my PCT thru, and frequently found myself not having to remove the pack all day. If you are looking for a pack to help you achieve constant forward motion, this is it.
This is technically a review for both the Tiempo and the Cutaway. I’ll never use another ultralight pack again. The ease of access to nearly anything on the go without stopping, the comfort, the design, the pockets, etc - they’ve nailed it. The folks at Nashville Pack are revolutionizing the ultralight backpack industry. Once you wear this pack, you’ll never go back. The Cutaway can fit nearly anything in it or on it (if you’re a UL backpacker) and the Tiempo is simply just magic - best fastpack there is.
