There are certainly a lot of multi-day hiking packs on the market. And a good deal of them are actually pretty good – at least as far as being spacious goes. One of the bigger issues with long-haul bags is that they aren’t particularly comfortable or convenient. Which is exactly what Arc’teryx is looking to change with their newest release: the Bora AR 50 hiking pack.
With 3,050 cubic inches of space, waterproof AC nylon along wetness-prone areas, and a full complement of exterior access pockets and interior organizational pouches, this is one of the most comprehensive hiking backpacks. But what really makes it special is its customizable fit. That’s right, this bag is fitted with dual-density foam Gridlock shoulder straps that are adjustable in both height and width – so you can get the ideal fit for your body. It’s also equipped with a RotoGlide hip belt – which slides up and down to your body movement – and a Tegris back panel that offers a tremendous amount of ergonomic support and load stabilization. For just $499, you’ll never get stuck hiking with an uncomfortable pack again. [Purchase]
