Boreas Announces Echo and Monterey Waterproof Series Bags













I’ve always had a thing for good bags, maybe it’s because most of my life I carried a back pack around with me and I’ve found a  good bag can be a wonderful thing. It’s not just comfort either, yes comfort is a big part of it, but the material and build quality is very important as well, but also I think the bag has to have enough room for all your stuff and protect that stuff. I’ve never heard of Boreas but they sent over a press release about their latest bags, the Echo and the Monterey, the bags look very similar, the main difference is how much they can hold really. The big selling point for me would be the fact that they’re both waterproof. Sure waterproof is great for camping and hiking and all that but it’s also a must have really for just everyday life. I can’t count how many times I’ve been just caught in the rain without an umbrella and the stuff in my bag got wet. The Echo is $140 and it has a capacity of 25 liters and the Monterey is $165 and it has a capacity of 35 liters. I don’t get the whole liter capacity measuring system as I’m not carrying liquids, but whatever…

The Waterproof Series allows for adventurers to push the envelope and go to new locations. This new series has been designed to be versatile, incorporating function and features from our other packs plus waterproof construction. The line consists of Two bags, The Echos and The Monerey.
