Loadout Room

With years of walking long distances with heavy weight to my name, the Borealis feels like a perfectly worn-in rucksack. The shoulder straps are incredibly comfy, with suspension straps to help keep the weight high and centered. The waist belt is well padded with built-in pockets to hold even more stuff you most likely don’t need.
