The Boreas Lost Coast 60 is a large and simple, comfortable pack for people who care about cutting weight but are not crazy enough to cut the handles off their toothbrushes. Winner of 2012 Backpacker Magazine's Editor's Choice Award. Simple Comfort: Packs don't have to be complicated to be comfortable. The z-foam back panel and removable frame sheet are shaped to match the curve of your back. Nothing fancy. (Just lots and lots of prototypes). Cool It: Poke the z-foam on the back panel (don't worry, it's tough stuff) and you'll see that it springs back. That compression/reaction motion happens as you hike, pumping air through to keep your back cool. Foam Sweet Foam: More foam does not equal more comfort. Super-plush belts and straps look comfy in the store but flatten out under pressure. Comfort happens when pressure is distributed evenly through good design and foam resilient enough to maintain volume under load. Keep it Clean: There was a time when packs were judged by how many zippers, buckles and straps they had. We're glad those days are over so we can benefit from better ideas like daisy chains that tuck away when you don't need them. Material World: Boreas's lightweight 210D ripstop nylon pack body fabric is impregnated with silicone for waterproof strength that won't wear out or rub off over time. The heavier 420D nylon is used for the pack's bottom to resist abrasion. If you're into lightweight thru-hiking with less frills and more thrills, you'll love the Boreas Lost Coast pack series.
