User Review: Arc'teryx Bora 80
Max. Load Carried: 45 lbs
Height of Owner: 6'0
Price Paid: $225
06' Model. Like everyone else says, this pack is bomb proof and water tight. It is extremely easy to adjust the suspension, it uses a Velcro system to adjust shoulder strap height. My 3rd adjustment was a charm. After I found the sweet spot, the pack perfectly contoured to my back, best fit I’ve ever had.
I took this pack on a 4 day trek into the Sierras. I had about 45+ lbs in the pack, but the pack performs so well that the hiking was easy with all that weight. The sleeping bag storage compartment is huge, so is the kangaroo pocket which I used to keep my Capilene top and bottom base layers and my Mountain Hardwear soft shells, quick easy access for when it got cold!
This pack has another awesome feature, the top of the pack un-clips and turns into a fanny pack! I used it the whole trip to put my most used items, and to keep my tackle as I fished with it.
