User Review: Arc'teryx Bora 80
Size: 80 Liters
Number of Pockets: 2 side
Max. Load Carried: About 50 lbs.
Height of Owner: 6' 2"
Price Paid: $265
Bought the pack in June 2007. It's a 2006 closeout model from REI. I've taken it on mostly two-day hikes in Arkansas, and I took it up in the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend National Park overnight.
I'm not an ultra-lighter, and if you are, don't even consider this pack. It's heavy, but it's very well made. I always have at least 40 pounds, and feel that I could easily carry more if I had to. It carries well, and everything is accessible.
While you're carrying the pack, it's hard to get a Nalgene out of one of those side pockets. I use the little bungees on the pockets, but I have lost a bottle before. That's the only negative that I can think of.
I don't think that I would have paid full price for it just because it's not my nature.
