User Review: Arc'teryx Bora 80
Price Paid: $399.99
I bought this pack for 3 main reasons.
1. 50 lbs feels like 30 lbs (it really does)
2. The wet gear pouch on the back of the pack that drains out wet tent flys and wet gear while you pack on down the trail. For a one nighter it makes little difference for a extended stay..it means no wet gear in pack.
3. Day pack is part of the backpack.
I use it with the strap over one shoulder and under the other arm. It does slip around a bit but with out a waist to keep it up that is my main way of carrying it. It would be nice to have some suspenders to keep it at my waist... that is what you get for having a belly and a little behind.
I was so satisfied I bought my 17 year old son one. His is the grey color.
Pack is holding up nicely with over 20 packing trips with it. It's always a joy to put it on. Even when it's really loaded heavy.
