User Review: Arc'teryx Bora 80
Source: bought it used
Price Paid: $140
Great extended trip backpack, when you're the replacement for the pack animal. This pack distributes weight very well, no sore spots, and keeps things dry.
- Protects gear from the elements
- Weight distribution
I bought this pack to last forever, and I think it will. It's about six years old, and going very strong. It keeps all of my climbing gear, and I take most of that out for 50-milers and such.
I live and play in the PNW, so moisture control is an omnipresent issue. This pack has never let my gear get wet, even on multiple trips in the Hoh rain forest (200 inches a year). The pack is strong, reliable and has great accessibility with the side zips. I use the top, removable "fanny" as my fast and light pack.
I have let people borrow this, I have strapped and thrown and pushed it but I have not found its limit. Thank you, Arc'teryx.
Note: I like Arc'teryx a lot. I have most everything they have ever made.
