Patagonia Arbor Zip Pack 22L

April 27, 2022

Perfect simple pack

If you want a simple, no frills backpack that can haul 22L worth of stuff comfortably and keep your laptop safe, this is The Backpack. The material is sturdy, there is a false bottom in the laptop sleeve, the colorblock sparks so much joy, the zippers slide easily, and the straps and back are thoughtfully constructed to make carrying it much more c... Read Moreomfortable than any other pack out there. For the shorter people, the straps aren't connected to the very top of the backpack, so in actuality this feels more like a 17-18in tall backpack than a 19in one. I carry a 16in laptop, large headphone case, notebook, sweatshirt, glasses case, and other small items with me every day and this bag can hold it all with room to spare. I'm honestly tempted to buy a couple more to last me another 30 years because this bag makes me smile every time I look at it or use it. Kudos to Patagonia for leaning into casual-cool colorblocking in the Arbor line. Break the all black tech bro work backpack monopoly.

No bottle holders?

Dont get me wrong, I like the pack but there are many areas of improvement. No side pockets for bottles, I wrongfully assumed this pack had these to begin with but seriously? I feel like this should be common sense. Laptop sleeve could come up higher and have more padding. There could be more pockets. I understand why it went on sale but for the or...

Hello Jonathan! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disappointment with the lack of water bottle pockets. Our Arbor Zip Pack is designed to be incredibly sleek and simple, so its doesn't have a lot of features. If you're interested in a pack with more features we'd suggest taking a look at our [Refugio Daypack 26l](

Amazing book bag!

Quality is excellent. Love the style. Only downside (and not that big of a deal) is I would like more pockets, however I still love the simplicity and you can fit tons of stuff in it. I use it for my laptop, books, etc. I recommend it and would buy again!

Needs bottle holders

This pack is great for a smaller (5'3'') frame for women, but the lack of a bottle holder inside or outside is bizarre. I love the classic look, but I do not understand why there is not a sleeve on the inside or outside to put a thermos or water bottle, it's a fatal flaw. The bag is comfortable and fits a 16 inch macbook pro ext... Read Moreremely well, the straps are well padded and really comfortable. It's so difficult to find a sustainable backpack that really fits a woman's frame well, and this pack is so comfortable. Some kind of organization or internal pocket, and a bottle sleeve would make this bag amazing. I just don't understand why Patagonia makes the Arbor line without common sense features.

Not for short torsos

I bought this because I liked how minimalist it was in design. But perhaps its a bit too minimalist. Wouldve loved to have a side pocket for a water bottle or an umbrella. Seems like a slightly elevated Jansport bag. Also, Im short and the bottom of the bag rubs on my lower back awkwardly, despite adjusting it.

Hey Cherish, thanks for the review. One tool we'd like to mention for future use is our "Size & Fit Guide". It could be found on any product page underneath the size and color options. The size and fit guide for packs will give you a list of dimensions, as well as packs that would work well for certain torso lengths. Have a look and you may find an alternative that will work better for your measurements.

Great for walking home from school

Bought this for my son, so his homework wouldnt get wet walking home. Has held up great so far, quality, and looks good - what more could he ask for?
