    Big backpacking trips.

    Spend a week backpacking in the mountains, camping near lakes, and avoiding the crowds with all the essentials packed in the Arc'teryx Men's Bora AR 63 Backpack. This hybrid backpacker is comprised of Arc'teryx's weatherproof AC² panels in key areas for reliable protection from rain and snow, while the remaining nylon panels assure long-lasting durability. Both the shoulder straps and waist belt adjust up and down the back panel to ensure a solid fit that feels personalized to your body.
    Arc'teryx built the Bora's suspension system with a thermo-molded frame sheet and aluminum stays for support, and the RotoGlide waist belt swivels and moves with your hips at each step to reduce chafing. The Bora AR is a traditional top loader with a side zipper for easy access to layers on the trails. Hydration compatibility accommodates your own reservoir, and there are side pockets and waist belt pockets to carry water bottles and energy gels.

    Its OK

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    Pros:
    -High quality fabric
    -Kangaroo pouch is nice
    - Love the lack of non-essientals
    - It's good to see a company that thrives for innovation.

    Cons:
    -RotoGlide is much better on paper. The glide seems to only work when you are standing upright and bending left to right (which isn't pretty much never) . I can't see any real benefit on the actual trail when your positioned at a forward angle.
    - Premium price for a potential meaningless feature.
    - Top lid is awkwardly shape due to the fabric used.
    - Grid lock straps seems like a potential point of failure in extreme conditions IMO.
    - Didn't feel like 63L capacity for a 5lb+ backpack

    Well worth it

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The pack has been nothing but amazing, I don't feel sore at the end of the day, and the suspension keeps the weight evenly distributed on the gigantic plush hipbelt. It works as a backpack perfectly, and includes all the features you'd expect, plus a couple more. Waterproofing helps a lot for peace of mind, I'm sure it's not completely waterproof, but it's kept everything dry in pouring rain without a rain cover, and the laminated fabric feels sturdy, while still being lightweight.

    The only things I don't like about it:
    -External Storage is so-so. The kangaroo pocket keeps everything accessible, but they include a couple loops for attachment on the sides.
    -Hip belt is a little bit awkward when storing the pack in a vestibule or something. It just sticks out, so I clip it together and it's a little more manageable.
