Description

The Arc'teryx Bora 35 keeps gear in place and organized for a day on the trail. Arcteryx uses their V-stay suspension to gently handle heavy loads. Signature Arc'teryx effects including kangaroo pocket with drain hole, and WaterTight zippers, designate the Bora 35 as an enlightened load carrier. Laminated internal pocketing, and a dedicated sleeping bag area, combines with the removable top lid that can be used as a fanny pack, to insure that gear stays organized. The Arc'teryx Bora 35 is built with breakthrough suspension technology and ergonomic design. Now the world standard, the Bora hipbelt features four layers of foam laminated and thermoformed into a curved, cupped shape that gives agility to even a fully loaded pack. Travel over rugged and irregular terrain with a Bora on your back will be a comfortable affair.

This little pack is all-around great pack for light alpine excursions. I bought mine on Phish tour summer 2004 when it just came out have have thence used it for 3 seasons. Perfect size for 3 days outings; packs well; just large enough to hold tent, sleeping bag, pad, food, pro, with the rope slinged over the top. The best part of the Bora packs is the weatherproofed fabric and waterproof zippers which keep gear dry during wet approaches. This thing is super durable; while climbing the NE ridge of Williamson, climbed into a bind with my buddy above me with the rope (don't ask) and had to drop my pack before jumping 23 ft down into a couloir. Anyhow, the pack full with bivy & climbing gear tumbled 400 feet over snow, rocks, and talus and held up fine - a few scrapes but fine. Only minus is the hip belt - if going more than a couple miles with a loaded pack, it becomes uncomfortable and will rub against your hips causing rashes. Forget about all that "the Bora hipbelt features four layers of foam laminated and thermoformed into a curved, cupped shape ..." - the belt sucks and who ever designed it likely never tested the product under the conditions alpine climbers would use it for. Generally am impressed by arc'teryx's gear but if it wasn't for this, I would love the pack and give it my full recommendation. but sadly it doesn't carry well so I want to get another pack, hoping for the Granite Gear Alpine Vapor...
