Arc'teryx Bora AR 49 Pack - Women's
Arc'teryx Bora AR 50 Review | Backpacking Backpack | Backpackers.com
Arc’teryx also makes this line with a women’s-specific fit, and there are two pack models: the Bora AR 49 and the Bora AR 61. All of these packs are excellent, and built in almost the exact same way. If you want a durable, capable backpack that can handle pretty much anything, just make sure to get the size and gender that’s right for you

After lots of research, this is the best bag for me!
Great bag! Love the laptop pocket, I still confuse the two other large compartments but I just noticed one set of zippers have lanyards so now I can tell them apart- clever work, Dakine! I like the admin pocket a lot and water bottle pouches. Also the sunglasses pouch where I can keep masks and glas...

wanted to love this pack
This was quite a bit larger than my old pack which I liked but ultimately the straps fit my chest weirdly and I did not like the top bag strap being flat and hard to grasp as I do a lot of airplane travel. I wanted to love this pack, as it had lots of storage compartments, but I ultimately sent it b...

Wore the pack through rain and snow...
