This backpack exceeded my expectations. It is the perfect size for my 5’4”, 110 pound frame. It is also the perfect size backpack for day hiking. It had plenty of storage for everything that I carried with me and I found all of the pockets to be very useful to keep items organized . It was very comfortable even when worn all day hiking. I highly recommend this backpack.

I’ve had this back pack for the last 3 years in high school, taken it on several hiking and camping trips, taken it on vacation, and to work everyday in the summer, and I still plan to take it to college next year! It has been super durable. It has had almost no wear & tear, despite constantly being in use. I absolutely loved this backpack and would recommend! It is nice and compact, but fits everything you need. The side pockets are surprisingly spacious and are a great place for extra storage. I carried a lot of books in my bag, and one strap started to tear from the bag, but that did not impact functionality and was a simple repair. Great back pack overall!

I like it so much!

I love this bag. It fits my small torso well, and it has enough storage space for day pack and nice design!


Thanks for the photo!

Can anyone tell me how big of an insulated water bottle I could fit in the side pocket? I love water and having it with me all the time :) I need a nee bottle but I want to make sure I get one that will fit in the side pocket. I just ordered the pack so I won’t have it for a few days (praying it gets here before my trip to AZ), but I want to get the bottle ordered so it can get here for my trip also.

School pack for my 7 & 10 year old

My girls are always looking for backpacks that are different from everyone else at school. Not too mention getting ones that don't look giant on them (they are petite in size). We just ordered this in the green and blue colors and my girls are stoked to have them for school. They love all the pockets and water bottle slots on the sides. I can see them having these packs for many years to come.


Can someone tell me the dimensions of this backpack please?

Hi Donna - the Height Width Length here is in inches: 17 x 11.5 x 8


What is the intended use for the stitched-down straps on the outside, like along the word PATAGONIA on the left and mirrored on the right?
