Lagunitas Backpack | By Boreas

Not to long ago we did a feature on Boreas, they are a recent company based in San Francisco that make practical and hard wearing outdoor equipment. They recently presented a new line up of bags and were kind enough to send us the Lagunitas, a revolutionary hike-bike-travel-commute daypack. Read our thoughts and check out some pictures below...

Boreas motto is "Comfortable isn´t complicated", they believe the best gear is neither complicated nor expensive, that it should be as versatile as the person using it, and that there’s no reason to compromise form for function. We agree, and we witnessed there view on the Lagunitas Backpack, the perfect no-compromise backpack for cycling and hiking.
The Lagunitas features a revolutionary backpack design that lets you change the suspension according to your needs. With it´s "trampoline suspension" system you can choose from a flat panel back-hugging pack with little airflow to a weight-off-your-back pack with a large ventilation channel(perfect for biking and hot day hikes). This is achieved by pulling a strap, making the back panel bow away from the mesh. You can see how the system works below 

"The beauty of the variable suspension is that you can adjust the gap between the pack and your back. More gap, more airflow. More airflow, less clammy, back-sweaty, backpack nastiness."
Another great feature on this bag is the waterproof top pocket, for storing your cell phone, wallet, and other stuff you want to keep dry. Two stretchy zip-closure side pockets keep other small items at hand. It has one large main compartment which you can access trough a U-shaped zipper on top entry, inside it has great storage for all your days gear and an adjustable padded internal pocket that can expand out to carry a laptop or hold a hydration pack.
The Lagunitas also features a chest stability strap and a waist belt that you can adjust and move in to place via a clever "rail" system. Great for getting the waist belt bellow your belly when cycling, allowing the bag not to swing around so much.
Overall, the no-compromise pack is ideal for someone who likes to cycle to work with a laptop, gym-goers or hiking adventures in the woods. It is clean, functional, comfortable and reasonably priced. A fine and versatile pack, with great usability and stylish design.

The Lagunitas is available in three color combinations, all black, orange and grey, and the version we got our hands on, red and grey. You can get it from the Boreas online store, or at Amazon
