Boreas Lost Coast 60 -
The Boreas Lost Coast 60 is a lightweight backpacking backpack with comfortable suspension and a streamlined design.
Winner of 2012 Backpacker Magazine's Editor's Choice Award.
A Z foam back panel and hipbelt, both covered in mesh, breath incredibly well to keep you cool while you're on the move.
A removable frame sheet is ergonomically designed to match the curvature of your back for all-day comfort and excellent load transfer from shoulders to hips.
Ergonomic shoulder straps have highly breathable areas on top of the shoulders.
Large hipbelt pockets keep your essentials at hand so you don't have to take the pack off to grab a snack, your camera or some sunscreen while on the move.
The large, removable top lid has three pockets for excellent organization, and lash points on top for tying on extra gear.
The top-loading main compartment swallows all your backpacking gear - no extra zippers or separate sleeping bag compartments to add weight or complexity.
A stretchy front pocket is perfect for a tent or other wet gear you want to keep away from the rest of your stuff.
Two compression straps on each side and Boreas's Ribcage design keeps your load taught and under control for an optimal center of gravity.
Loops for trekking poles or ice axes let you stow tools when you want your hands free.
Innovative hidden daisy chains down the back and on the shoulder straps stay tucked away until you need to lash things down.
Large water bottle pockets swallow 1-liter bottles and have a side access so you can grab your bottles without taking the pack off.
Hydration reservoir compatible for hands-free drinking.
Comes with a pack cover to keep the rain off when the sky opens up.
Named for the rugged and wild Lost Coast of northern California, a hiker's paradise.
Tough, silicone-impregnated fabric is designed to last while still being lightweight.
From a quick overnight backpack to light-and-fast multi-day backpacking trips, this backpacking backpack from Boreas Gear is efficient and comfortable all the way through.


  • The lightweight 210D ripstop nylon pack body fabric is impregnated with silicone for waterproof strength that won't wear out or rub off over time.


  • Full-length front stretch pocket, 2 side stretch pockets and 2 hipbelt pockets let you organize and easily access gear, clothing, water bottles and snacks
  • Light, no-nonsense hipbelt and shoulder straps with sternum strap are sized for a woman and made with resilient foam that keeps its volume and helps distribute pressure evenly


  • The Boreas Lost Coast 60 pack features tuck-away daisy chains, raincover, hidden gear loops on the shoulder straps and hydration compatability (reservoir sold separately)


  • More foam does not equal more comfort. Super-plush belts and straps look comfy in the store but flatten out under pressure. Comfort happens when pressure is distributed evenly through good design and foam resilient enough to maintain volume under load.


  • Streamlined pack body features a light polyurethane rib cage design that adds structure; removable top lid features a zippered pocket and helps fend off precipitation


  • BACKPACKER 2012 Editors’ Choice Award winner! The April issue states, “Get everything you need and nothing you don’t in one of these ultralight, ultracomfortable packs.”
  • Simple Clean design with daisy chains that tuck away when you don’t need them
  • Simple, zigzag foam back panel and removable framesheet are shaped to match the curve of your back and pump fresh air through the channels as you walk
  • Closeout
  • Poke the z-foam on the back panel (don’t worry, it’s tough stuff) and you’ll see it springs back. That compression/ reaction motion happens as you hike, pumping air through to keep your back cool.
The women’s Lost Coast 60 pack from Boreas is for lightweight travelers that don’t want to give up all their features. This pack features a pack cap for extra storage and has two compression straps on each side to create a low-profile load. The body is made of silicone impregnated 210D ripstop nylon, which is waterproof and more durable than lighter weight fabrics. It has a z-foam backpanel that pumps cool air across your back at you walk. Boreas believes in making simple, practical, reliable gear.

Positive Reviews:

Great pack!

The hip pockets are a great feature for food on the go.
Happy camper Lachlan at Mountain Gear on 12/12/2013

Negative Reviews:

Not very durable

I took this pack over some rough terrain on the first trip and when I got home I noticed a hole in the bottom. After than I only carried the pack when I was on a trail, but after just a few trips the fabric on the bottom seams started to fray and then holes appeared because the fabric was wearing thin. They really need to build the bottom of these packs with stronger fabric. I've never had a pack wear out in one season, but this one did.

Close but not quite...

I really wanted to like this pack and it came very close if not for a couple of things that I couldn't over look.
First the good:
- Relatively lightweight at 3lbs 6oz (Lg)
- Easy loading
- takes a bear canister no problem
- tuck away straps - clean look
- comes with a rain cover
- top has 3 access pockets for maps,lunch,first aid etc.
- hip strap pockets
- high coverage side pockets
- well made
The bad:
- The bottom curves up so when the pack is sat down it will tip over unless it's propped up (non free standing)
- The internal hydration sleeve is short and not fully enclosed. I prefer the ones that zip closed, this would be ok if the sleeve came all the way up to the top but it does not so when your bladder is full it hangs out into the main compartment. It does have a strap to keep your bladder in place which is a plus.
- The shoulder straps angle in and cut into my shoulders. This would be ok if they were padded but they are not, they have hard piping along the edges, very uncomfortable!!
- While not too heavy, on top of everything else... the 3lbs + is the straw that breaks the camel's back for me.
I'm returning the pack... if it fit better and didn't tip over I would keep it because I can lose the extra weight somewhere else. For someone else it might be a great pack. I recommend you try it out in the store if you can with some weight in it but I've only seen them online.
