Durability: By far the most durable pack I have owned. Takes rough terrain like a champ, with very little wear & tear to show for it. Sliding over rough ice/rock, walking through heavy brush, and getting it frozen a couple times without needing anything more than a good wash with the hose in the back yard when I get home.
Comfort: If you like the cushier feel of a suspension style frame, then this backpack is probably not for you. If you generally prefer stiffer foam to support heavier loads more comfortably, this pack has it in spades. At first, I thought the pivot hip belt system was a little gimmicky, but now I am definitely a believer. Even when bending way over, this pack feels glued to my body at the waist.
Weather Resistance: While it is not waterproof in that you can't submerge it and expect to keep everything dry, a lot of the Bora 63 is made out of waterproof fabric. Unless I am expecting a horrendous downpour, I don't even bother bringing a rain cover. Even the zipper on the kangaroo pouch is waterproof, so you can still keep stuff dry in there as long as the brain of the pack covers the opening. This weather resistance really shines in winter storms, where high winds prevent the use of rain covers.
Hip Belt Pockets: The Bora has elastic openings on the pockets, instead of the traditional zippered ones that are almost universal for today's packs. While I definitely wouldn't trust them with a phone, they are amazing for low-value items such as snacks and sunscreen. I never really fumble with the pockets, like I do with zippers on other packs. I can quickly retrieve and store whatever I need.
Cavernous Brain Size: For those who haven't heard the term, the "brain" of the pack is the top lid that covers the main body. I tend to over-stuff this portion of most backpacks and this one really encourages that admittedly bad habit. So while I really like the extra space, others might find this too roomy.
Water Bottle Pockets: They are roughly the same height as most other bottle pockets, but significantly wider. This allows for more secure storage of gear on the sides of the pack. For example, my two side pockets usually contain my water bottles AND the bottom portions of my tent poles and hand axe (one on each side).
No Bottom Straps: Most top of the line packs feature adjustable straps on the bottom to store gear externally. The Bora 63, on the other hand, has two very small and very nonadjustable loops.
Poor Strap Management: This mostly concerns the adjustment straps in the brain and the load lifter straps. There doesn't seem to be a way to easily store the extra slack at the end and I have resorted to rubber bands.
Sizing: It only comes in two sizes: Regular and Tall. However, I think it runs a bit too long in the torso. For reference, I am 5' 7'' and I just barely fit in the regular with it adjusted to it's shortest length.
Lack of Lumbar: This pack does provide some lumbar support in the hip belt, but I would call it less than average. If you are somebody who has lower pack pain or finds a lot of lumbar support comfortable, the Bora 63 might not be for you (I would try Gregory and/or REI brand packs for that).
Except for a couple minor issues that I can live with, I absolutely love this pack. I tend to run my gear kind of hard, so the durability of this pack is very pleasing. I would recommend this pack for anybody looking for something both extremely durable and comfortable, as long as you don't faint after seeing the price.
