To be honest, 90 percent of multiday backpacking packs are ill-fitting, restrictive and cheaply made. But Arc’teryx finally made its new Bora AR 50 pack, which we highlighted as best in show at Outdoor Retailer, available for purchase, and it’s poised to change all of that. The Bora has what is essentially a free-floating hip belt called RotoGlide. It slides both horizontally and vertically on rails to allow for an unsurpassed range of motion whether you’re hiking, fording a river, scrambling up a tight chute or sprinting through the airport. It’s the ultimate multiday pack, and once you try it, you’ll never want to use anything else.
