FEATURED PRODUCT: BOOTLEGGER

The Bootlegger is a modern day shape shifter that brings modular functionality to our patent-pending Super-Tramp suspension. This customizable pack system allows you to attach the suspension to a variety of packs depending on the activity or weather. Want to kayak or play in the snow and need a dry-bag? Drop the waterproof and submersible Scrimshaw onto the suspension. When commuting or hiking, connect the suspension to the Hopper daypack to better organize your things. If the weather gets nasty, drop the Hopper inside the Scrimshaw for ultimate wet weather protection. The smaller Torpedo hydration pack delivers stripped down and lightweight comfort for when you go running, cycling, or hiking and only want to carry the essentials.

BOREAS IN OAHU:

Our friends Michael Taylor and Julia Lemke took some Boreas equipment on a trip to Michael’s hometown in Oahu, Hawai’i. They visited several historic landmarks with amazing coastal views and wildlife like Pu'u o Mahuka Heiau. This was once the site of Oahu's largest temple, and has an important place in Hawaiian history and lore. It overlooks Waimea Bay and has an epic view of the coastline and famed surf break. They also visited Kaena Point, the westernmost tip of the island, where they saw monk seals and albatrosses. View a full photo gallery of their trip HERE
