Constructed of highly durable fabrics and employing an innovative suspension system, the award-winning Arc'teryx Men's Bora AR 50 internal frame backpack is ideal for weekend-long or extended backpacking trips.
The pack utilizes a thermoformed framesheet and aluminum stays to provide excellent weight-hauling capability and load stability. A locking grid on the upper portion of the backpanel enables you to adjust the height and the width of the padded and contoured shoulder straps to enhance fit. The patent-pending RotoGlide hipbelt allows unrestricted movement in any direction and is far more responsive than traditional hipbelts. An adjustable sternum strap and load-lifter straps further allow you to dial in fit. Highly-durable nylon fabrics deliver excellent abrasion-resistance and withstand the rigors of repeated backcountry use. Weatherproof fabric in strategic, "high exposure" areas of the pack bolsters protection against the elements.
The main compartment has a traditional top access point but a side zipper also provides quick access to the pack without having to remove the lid. An integrated spindrift collar protects the interior of the pack and expands or stuffs down as needed depending on your contents. A large zippered front pocket, zippered side pockets, a zippered internal pocket, and dual pockets in the lid offer additional storage and organizational options. Stretch side pockets can accommodate water bottles and zippered hipbelt pockets keep valuables and small items in easy reach. There are low-profile trekking pole/ice axe loops that maintain the pack's clean profile. A lined internal sleeve and drinking tube exit ports make the pack hydration system compatible (hydration system not included)The Arc'teryx Men's Bora AR 50 is available in Regular (fits roughly 18.3"-20.3" torso lengths) and Tall (19.9"-21.8" torsos) size options.
