User Review: Arc'teryx Bora 80
Price Paid: $225
I've been supper happy with this pack. I bought the pack two months ago, and I've used it on 3 trips. The pack can fit my medium format gear (mamiya 7ii w/3 lens's) not large format gear though, and all my gear for 5 days. It carries the weight better than my a Osprey Crescent 110.
One of my favorite things about is it has plenty of straps on the outside to holds things on like my tripod, snowshoes, gaitors, or whatever. My Osprey 110 only has one set of straps right on the back and it's hard too lash multiple things on the pack. Also the water proof fabric and zippers do a good job of keeping moisture out. My osprey EASILY gets soaked out!
This pack has turned out better that I had expected, it's made in Canada and has better construction than my Osprey, which is made in Vitenam.
Sorry if I sound a little sour on Osprey, But I have not had a good experience with their Crescent 110 pack. And for the money I don't think their packs stack up! So I soon plan to get rid of the Crescent 110 and replace it with the Bora 95!
