FEATURED PRODUCT: THE WATERPROOF SERIES
Boreas Gear strives to design and build unique looking outdoor gear that can meet the needs of today’s avid adventurer. The first waterproof backpacks we developed were no exception. Our designers set out with the goal to create an effective waterproof pack that didn't look like a traditional roll top. The results were the sleek looking and zippered Monterey and Echo backpacks.

THE WATERPROOF SERIES DESIGN PROCESS:
The designs of our Waterproof Series backpacks are unique in that they blend the versatility of an urban daypack with the functionality of a dry bag. Both the 35L Monterey and the 25L Echo waterproof packs feature tuckable shoulder straps and drainage pockets for mounting to boats and storing wet gear. Double hull construction, non-absorbent fabric, and stealthy hidden zippers help these packs shed water and keep your gear dry whether you’re on a backwater canoe trip or biking through the city in a storm.

BOREAS IN ALASKA:
Some friends of ours recently ventured out on an epic road trip that began in Montana and wound all the way up to Alaska. They took along some Boreas bags as they four wheeled, hiked, biked, swam, and camped their way through our northern-most state. Their journey took them to some spectacular lakes and glaciers, as well as smaller Alaskan towns like Seward, which is the starting point for the historic 938-mile long Iditarod trail.
