Lost Coast Design Process / February 23, 2015


The Lost Coast backpack is one of the original bags designed in Boreas’ first season. Upon its release in 2012, the Lost Coast won Backpacker Magazine’s Editors Choice Award. We designed the Lost Coast with features that are the true foundation of the Boreas DNA, and knew that they would be used for years to come. First up would be our ribcage seam system, which allows us to use lightweight materials with reinforced lines. In addition, our side compression also work with these ribcage seams to help stabilize and pull your gear upward rather than lateral. Our hidden daisy chains, which run vertical along our front stretch pockets, stay cloaked while not in use but are easily pulled out to attach additional gear. We also created a unique Z-Foam suspension system that allows for air to flow behind your back while hiking. You will see these DNA components throughout the entire Boreas collection. 

2015 will be another great year on the trail. We hope to see you out there...
