A look back at the packs we've loved for years that's still at the top of its class.
Boreas Lost Coast
With a great price, low weight, and a remarkably breathable backpanel, this 2012 Editors’ Choice pick has top-class load transfer, thanks to webbing-reinforced seams that wrap the packbag like a rib cage. They’re angled to pull the load in, countering the sag that plagues many packs. $210; 3 lbs. 6 oz.; 60 liters; boreasgear.com
