From class to the trail.

Patagonia's Refugio Backpack transitions from campus to hiking trails with ease. Just take your laptop out of the pack's padded pocket to leave space for your hydration reservoir. You can also replace your school books with snacks and trekking poles, or you can take it all with you just in case you get inspiration to finally write that essay. Air Flow mesh makes the shoulder straps and back panel comfortably breathable and plush, and Patagonia built the rest of this backpack out of a highly durable polyester, and treated it with a water-resistant coating for protection.

  • Air Flow mesh shoulder straps and back panel
  • Recycled polyester with DWR coating
  • Padded laptop sleeve or hydration reservoir
  • Secondary compartment with organizers
  • Small pocket, side stretch pockets
  • Basic compression straps

Very comfortable and great looking

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've had this backpack for a little over a month and I've used it almost every single day. It's my go-to backpack for work where it always seems to be stuffed to the brim and I can hardly tell. Haven't had any issues with comfort thus far.

Typical Patagonia quality. Oh-and it looks great. I can always trust that my Patagonia stuff will be pleasing to the eye.

What are the dimensions of an X-Large?

Unbridled Quality

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have the previous version of this pack. I got it in 2011 and have used it everyday since. It's been my to-work laptop tote daily and has accompanied on countless weekend trips. From mountains to desert to narrow sandstone slot canyons that are incredible abrasive, this pack has held up beautifully .I will not hesitate to update to the new version one day down the road if my current one ever wears out, which as of now it's not even close to doing. Provides a nice shady respite for felines in the desert too.
