    Great backpack

      This multipurpose backpack is great for almost any trip or journey. Ive used it for school, day hikes, and long trips as well. It holds a computer and multiple text books with excess space, as well as it being stuffed to the brim full of clothes for a 5 day road trip. The adjustable straps keep smaller packs together, but if loosened can hold a large amount of gear for any occasion. Would highly recommend this Patagonia backpack

      From street to slope

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      This is the perfect backpack to take literally anywhere and everywhere. From city to mountain, it serves all purposes. Wide, open interior with some decent pockets (would love a few more smaller pockets for easy access). The colors are great, and work seamlessly with any occasion. The quality is super durable and I have nothing but good things to say about this pack! Will use heavily in traveling, both in city and wilderness.

      Can't Beat Such a Classic Design

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This backpack is perfect for bringing to school, using around town, or for any short hikes! The laptop sleeve fits my 13in Macbook Pro perfectly which makes it super easy to transport to class, and more than enough space in the main compartment allows for 4 to 5 large books to be stored as well. Highly recommend this pack to anyone looking for a stylish but simple backpack to use around town!

      Perfect, simple backpack

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I've been using this backpack for several weeks now and love it. Feels very durable. The main compartment fits more than I expected (I've packed it with shoes, gym clothes, laptop, textbook, my lunch, and it was still comfortable to carry), and the top-loading lid means you can pack it to overflowing as long as you can still strap it shut. The pockets in the front (which is as big as the entire front of the backpack) and the lid are as many as I need for organization.

      My only tiny complaints are that a water bottle holder would be nice (but I just hook one on with an s-biner) and when the main compartment is full, it makes the front pocket harder to access (because it's pulled tight).

      Surprisingly Spacious and Waterproof

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Got this backpack for weekend adventures, travel, and toting around on kayaking and short hiking trips. The first time I used it I threw it into a puddle of water in my kayak and splashed it a few times. I had my stuff in dry bags inside but the backpack itself repelled water and was totally dry when I took it out! Amazing! Its also 26 liters and adjustable so there is plenty of room for gear. It also has a waist strap for longer treks. Love Patagonia and this product... not to mention how cute it is. :)

      Great pack for the simplistic

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I bought this bag for my wife. She was needing a carry-all bag for work. This bag has been great to throw lunch, workout clothes, and any small extras in. Good looking and simple design.

      Keep it Simple!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a great pack overall. The design/aesthetic is amazing, and because it is Patagonia, you know it will last forever. I got this in the Forestland/Black colorway, and it has to be one of the coolest graphics ever put on a backpack. The laptop sleeve makes for secure transport of the all so important computer, and there is quite a bit of pocket space for other various items. Only drawback is the lack of a waterbottle holder!

      Needs pockets

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I was hoping to take this bag on a trip but ended up returning it because it doesn't have enough pockets or a place for a water bottle. There is only one small pocket on the outside that is awkwardly under the buckle for the top flap. It would be very hard to access something quickly from this bag if you are travelling. There is also no dedicated pocket on the side for a bottle, which is very surprising for a bag from Patagonia. This would be a great school bag or casual bag, but if you need something with function, there are probably better options.

      Nice simple design!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Great simply designed backpack! Used it for a trip to Colorado for traveling and day trips and hikes! Roomy large compartment, with key zippered pockets on front and inside top flap. Bought it for my husband and he loves the bright green color because it stands out in the airport or other crowded places.

      Great Look, Very Simple

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is a really cool, retro aesthetic and the color schemes are sweet. I also really like the material that is used for the bag.

      I must say it's a very simple bag. Some might like that, but personally, I prefer a few more pockets/organization features. As a nontechnical bag, meant for urban use, it seems like there could be some mesh pockets or something to put keys, wallet, pens, etc. There is a lapstop sleeve on the inside and then one large internal space. The lid has one large zippered pocket (because it's large it's not great for small items because they jostle around and get mixed up). And the front has a similar large zippered pocket.
      I think with the addition of a smaller, hanging, zippered, internal mesh pocket, and a water bottle sleeve (either inside or outside of bag), this would be a 5 star item

      Great pack for light use

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've been using this pack for a few months for light weight use and it works perfectly for my work commute. I made the mistake of taking it on a weekend work trip with a heavier load and trekking all over the city with it -- huge mistake. This pack fits a lot but does not distribute weight well on my small frame. Next time I'll be sure to bring my Patagonia black hole for all day city exploring.

      So happy together

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had this back pack for about a month now and we are inseparable. We go everywhere together. With the lifestyle I lead I tend to wear things out quickly but this guy seems like he will outlast me. I can't wait to take him to the Rockies! It also proves to be water proof. I have been living in Hawaii and it's endured ocean and rain quite well.

      Does this pack have a hydration port? If not can the laptop sleeve be used as one?

      Hi Kyla,

      Thanks for the question. Although this pack is not designed to be hydration compatible, I think you could easily accommodate a hydration bladder inside. Because of the fold over way the pack closes, you could run the hose through either side. The only modification you may have to do is get a small carabiner to hold the top vertical, which you could just attach to the webbing closure for the lap top. Let me know if you have any more questions about this pack or anything else on the site. Lisa ledlund@backcountry.com
