In 2013, Boreas Gear launched the original Bootlegger Modular Pack System on Kickstarter. With the support of hundreds of generous backers, we successfully funded the project. And now, we are back to launch the Bootlegger Photo Series exclusively through the Kickstarter Community.
The Aperture Pack is a 35-liter capacity technical daypack loaded with features for all-day photo adventures. This pack is equipped with the Bootlegger Modular Suspension, a removable camera insert and a packable rain cover. The Aperture Pack is a beautiful example of the award-winning gear design Boreas has come to be known for.
The Photo Series is built on the Bootlegger Modular Pack System. This system allows you to swap different pack bodies depending on the activity or weather. Want to go kayaking or have a play-day in the snow and need a dry bag? Drop the suspension on the waterproof Schrimshaw and be on your way. Commuting or hiking for the day? Swap the suspension onto the Hopper daypack and organize your gear. Currently, Boreas sells several alternative bodies for various activities and needs. We've added these additional packs into the Photo Series Kickstarter backer rewards.
Our Triple-Tramp Suspension is a new kind of modular back panel that allows the user to swap it from pack-to-pack. By simply loosening a buckle, the suspension can be easily removed and added to additional Bootlegger pack bodies, this allows you to pick the best and most appropriate pack for your next adventure. This suspension is also available in a specially designed size for women. With shortened shoulder straps that are ergonomically sculpted for a women's body and adjusted hip-pad placement, this fit is a great option for women to stay comfortable while using packs in the Triple-Tramp series.
The Aperture Photo Pack is a 35-liter capacity technical daypack for full-day photo assignments. Perfect to handle a pro-level kit with plenty of room for food, water and other essentials. Camera equipment stays nicely organized in the removable insert. The special dual-side daisy chain panels make for easy tripod carrying by allowing the user to customize the anchoring lengths of the two side compression straps for attaching various sizes of tripods. The Aperture Photo Pack comes with our signature waterproof top stash pocket to keep important things safe and a stow-away rain cover to keep everything dry.
The Aperture Photo Pack features side hidden daisy chains to hold your tripod and additional items. Use the side compression straps or your own attachment gear.
Original Kickstarter Project
What We Need
The Bootlegger Photo Series was created with the Kickstarter Community's feedback from our first project. With this feedback, we took special consideration in finishing a detailed design process with tons of iterations. We want to offer the Photo Series exclusively to our Kickstarter friends. The Photo Series will only be sold through Kickstarter in 2015. We need your support to run a minimum order quantity production run with our factory.

Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge we face in bringing this product to market is funding. We're confident that with your help, we'll be able to meet expectations for this product. However, given the high cost of materials, manufacturing, and minimum order quantities from the factory, procuring the funds for production is our largest challenge.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
