    From campus to the trail.

    Patagonia's Petrolia Backpack is a hybrid of sorts, built with features fit for hiking trails and long days away from home. The largest top loader in Patagonia's daypack collection, the Petrolia features a cavernous main compartment and a laptop sleeve with separate side access. A tube port lets the laptop sleeve double as a sleeve for your hydration reservoir. Patagonia coated the backpack in DWR for reliable water-resistance whether you're in the city or on a mountain, and Air Flow mesh gives the shoulder straps and back panel plenty of ventilated cush. There's also one large stretch front pocket for layers, and two side stretch pockets for water bottles. Multiple zippered stash pockets help you organize all the small things.

    Nice Pack for the price

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a light weight pack that will hold a lot and does not cost very much. It doesn't have any support of suspension so keep that in mind when you are loading it up. It makes a great climbing gym bag. It comfortable holds 2 shoes, 2 harnesses and 2 chalk bags. It also works well for hikes and as a carry on.

    Doesn't fit a 15" MacBook Pro in the laptop sleeve/compartment as advertised. I just put my laptop in the main compartment in one of those laptop protector cases and it works fine.

    wonderful wonderful

      I absolutely love this pack! I was nervous to make the transition from my north face, but this bag has surely calmed any of my anxieties. It fits all my gear for a solid weekend trip and feels great on my back after a long day of walking/hiking. I would definitely recommend it!

      wonderful wonderful

      Great Piece of Gear

        Love love love this pack, I will bale using it for work mostly, I work at the beach so it it is perfect for me to carry all my essentials love the front part to carry my wet towel and not get everything else wet. Makes everything look right and clean.

        Big and Light

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I needed to upgrade my school bag, and i decided to go with the newer model of my old bag because i loved it so much! The new model is bigger, with all the same pocket space, and is lighter weight.
        It has a laptop sleeve which can double as a camel back sleeve complete with the outlet at the nape of your neck. There is a stretchy front pouch which you can put nick nacks in, or a light jacket if you choose to bike with the backpack. It has the back and lower back padding for comfort while active, and mesh in the shoulder straps for comfort as well. There are straps for across your shoulders, and across your hips so if you are active you will not have a wiggly backpack. The side pockets are large enough for a nalgene bottle! The brain of the bag is pretty large and has a clasp for your keys so they do not fall out if the zipper is open. The interior of the pack is big and expansive complete with detailed for a student, pen holders additional pouches, and a phone pouch for safety!

        Compared to the older model, this is mad from lighter weight material, and i am a little concerned about the durability of the new pack, but as i just bought it i can not attest to durability yet.
