Also, it's a really sweet pack that has zips and organization inside with access to the half shell with a very convenient front zipper. Although may not be the safest shell for international travel, it's really well made.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Randal9 from California on Saturday, September 19, 2015I have to say I haven't had time to actually use this pack yet, but in checking it out it seems to be all I wanted in an ultra-light pack.
In checking it so far I find that there's room for my $129 Kelty Salida 2 Backpacking 2 Person Tent 2 including fly & poles & stakes (2 steel + 6 titanium), my $25 Kelty Salida tent footprint, my $50 Klymit Static V Lightweight Sleeping Pad & sack & repair kit, and my $62 TETON Sports TrailHead +20 Degree F Ultralight Sleeping Bag (2.9 lbs, 87"x 32"x 22") including the compression sack, as well as the included Sapa Trek rain cover, with all of this weighing in very slightly under 12.5 lbs total!
And all of this with plenty of room to spare (as far as I'm concerned) for my clothes, jacket, water and food. I was weighing the alternatives and decided on a pack-for-all-purposes compromise of 50 or 55 liters, and this was in the running as soon as I learned about it, since it looks like it will work quite well for both backpacking and for general travel, including carrying along with my fairly minimal panniers on bicycle tours and on motorcycle tours. I have also already picked up a fairly lightweight 50 liter Bago foldable duffel that will just fit the Boreas pack when it's loaded, so that I can protect the pack whenever I decide to check it on flights, rather than using it as a carry-on as will probably be more usual for me (since I usually check my foldable Dahon bicycle in its Dahon bike-case whenever I fly anywhere.
Right now I'm still in the early stages of trying it out with my minimal backpacking gear, but so far it seems quite comfortable and I'm looking forward to getting it on the trail and on the road shortly.
