    Non-touristy Adventure Travel: Boreas Sapa Trek Pack [Review]


    by jlukasavige

    Do you love adventure travel but hate looking like a backpacker? Straps hanging everywhere and large hip belts don't do anything to help you blend in to the crowd. Boreas solved this problem with their comfortable Sapa Trek.

    While roll-a-board bags have revolutionized the travel industry, I'm not a fan of wheeling luggage through subways, down busy city streets, and they certainly don't fit well on the back of a scooter. I did that in Thailand once and there's a reason I haven't repeated that.

    At 55 liters (3,356 cubic inches) you'll find room for everything you need for a two week trip or more. I fit all my gear plus two kid's worth of clothes in this bag for a 10 day adventure in Korea.

    Boreas includes a rain cover, though I left that at home along with the removable back panel to save weight and comply with United's carry-on size limits.
