Product Info

Whether you're heading to work, class, or the woods, the Patagonia Refugio 28L Backpack has got you covered. This three-compartment pack provides the space you need for a full day adventure, and the organization to keep it from becoming a full-day backpack cavity search. Airflow mesh on the shoulder straps and back panel prevent overheating while the adjustable sternum strap has an emergency whistle, and compression straps stabilize contents.

Comments about Patagonia Refugio 28L Backpack:

Great compact backpack, which for a business traveler like myself was key. The pockets on the sides for water bottles or whatever are ok - they take slightly more effort (2 hands) to get a pint bottle in, so if you're traveling and trying to one-hand a lot it can be a nuisance. The zippers are not smooth but seem robust. The outer pocket has dividers inside but none are large enough to slip a passport into so you'll just have to dump it into the pocket and fish around for it. Otherwise it's a great backpack and fits nicely under the seat in front of you on an airplane.
