Max. Load Carried: 55 lb
Height of Owner: 5'10"
Price Paid: $320 canadian
I purchased this pack after falling in love with my Arc'Teryx Arro day pack--the quality, design, materials and features are excellent. I checked some reviews on the internet and by far the Bora 80 was the pack of choice in the range i wanted...better reviews than many gregory, dana and the north face, and a better price.
The suspension is very comfortable, but the hip belt is the real bonus--so sweet. its molded cupped foam takes the pressure off the illiac crest and totally distributes it. until now i had thought that bruised hips were a fact of life for chronic overpackers like myself.
The pocket on the front is huge, with a top opening and a front zip. also a drainage hole--great for wet fly or jacket. top pocket comes off easily and is a substantial padded fanny pack. side access zipper to main compartment means you don't have to think too much about how you pack--you can always get at everything. there's a molded head cavity so you can lean your head back and look up... great in the mountains! i could go on...
all this with bomb-proof canadian construction and good looks. if you're in the market for a new pack, this is definately one worth checking out.
