    The K is for gear not branded with their 50 year anniversary logo

    I bought a Rab Boreas back in 2011 and used it for mountain biking. Great item apart from the hood which always seemed to come untucked and billow out behind me like a sail! Rab need to add a simple retention system to it. Nice to see a better range of colours too!

    I love my Boreas. Probably my most worn thing.

    Corrections and Clarifications...

    I suspect that Lowe pack isn't 2.2 tonnes...

    I'm also a Boreas fan, but while I can tolerate the hood for walking, I agree I found it a bit irritating at times for cycling. So I was really pleased when Rab introduced the Ventus Pull-On i.e a Boreas without a hood

    Yeah, I checked with Lowe Alpine and you're right

    Now edited. Thanks for the beta on the special 'K' as well. Will research and amend accordingly.
