WHERE FUNCTIONAL DESIGN MEETS MODULAR CAPABILITY
Here at Boreas Gear, we are in the business of designing purpose driven technical products that stand out both in appearance and performance. When designing technical packs, brands are faced with the dilemma of adding lots of features while keeping the designs clean and uncrowded. We wanted to bypass this catch 22 by creating a modular system that could accommodate a variety of functional packs for different activities. The result was the Bootlegger Series.
BOOTLEGGER DESIGN PROCESS
We wanted the original Bootlegger Series to feature a pack set that covered a wide range of activities. The Hopper is a versatile all-around daypack, the Scrimshaw adds weatherproof functionality to the series, and the Torpedo hydration pack is perfect for shorter hikes and trail runs. Swap any one onto the adjustable Super-Tramp suspension and you're good to go.
BOOTLEGGER CONCEPTS AND ITERATIONS
During the Bootlegger Series design process, we came up with a few concepts for modular packs designed for a range of activities that never made it into production. Here is a special glimpse of some sketches of Bootlegger pack iterations that have never been made.
