Apart from having a very unique name, the Chacabuco Backpack is Patagonia's largest daypack for those who can't leave gear behind. This big backpack boasts two generous main compartments, one with a padded sleeve for most 17-inch laptops. The padded sleeve also doubles as an insulated sleeve for reservoirs thanks to the integrated tube port. Breathable Air Flow mesh makes sure the back panel and shoulder straps are comfy on or off the trail.

Patagonia made the Chacabuco out of a highly durable recycled polyester with a DWR coating for superior water-resistance. This pack also features a zippered secure pocket for quick access to essentials, small pockets for sunglasses and car keys, stretch-woven pockets for water bottles, and shock cords for bulky items like an extra layer.

  • Air Flow mesh back panel and shoulder straps
  • Recycled polyester with DWR coating
  • Padded laptop sleeve with hydration compatibility
  • Zippered security and small pockets
  • Stretch-woven pockets
  • Shock cords

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I use it for school. Better than North Face Bags


it's ok

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

First, I have only used this pack commuting/around town so I can't comment on it's performance in the woods. Here's what I can tell u:


it's fairly big, certianly big enough for daily commuting and def big enough for a weekend trip (i would suspect it would be fine for an overnight hike but i haven't used it for that yet)

lots of pockets to organize your stuff. i pocket for a laptop/ipad, one for clothes/gear, one small one on top for odds and ends, and a medium sized pocket on the front (with the compression strap on it). Here is what i usually do: laptop pocket has an ipad, maybe a magazine and some papers, main pocket has a pair of shoes, 2 days worst of clothes. top pocket has an ipod, sunglasses, etc. bottom pocket has my chargers, toiletries etc. you can easily get away with a weekend's worth of stuff in this thing


*relativley* heavy for a daypack. I used the word relatively with emphasis. This is not a heavy pack. But when u compare it to packs of similar size from competitive brands (osprey, gregory) this is on the heavier end

Somehow i put 2 holes in the bottom of mine (fixed it with a gore-tex repair patch). Not saying this is entirely the packs' fault, but i've only had it a few months, and more importantly, i use it in the relatively bening conditions of daily commuting. On the other hand, i've had an osprey talon which has gone all over the world with me, fished/skied/hiked in some brutal conditions, and I haven't had a problem.

Bottom line, for the price, u can prob do better, but if u can grab it on sale, it's not the worst of the bunch. I just can't bring myself to give it more than 3 stars bc i dont think its deserving

Good pack

Good pack. Well sized for a day or two hike. I can last a Saturday and Sunday with mine loaded out: two 3 liter bladders, 2 field stripped MREs, extra socks, ENO hammock and straps, bug spray.

I also use it for light travel. Had a tattoo convention last month in Vegas. Held enough clothes for Fri, Sat and Sun plus my toiletries.

Its not a huge pack. I just pack light and know how to pack. I try to keep my packs as small as possible, bc the bigger they are, the easier it is to have a tendency to overpack and overfill them. (My wife's purse, for instance...)

Had the pack for 2 years. Going strong, but not long enough to have had it and say anything about its longevity yet.
