Patagonia Arbor Roll Top Pack 30L

4.2/5

Comfortable, practical and pretty

Very classy looking bag, while also being super practical because it's really big, but I don't look like I'm going hiking when I wear it at work. Also just really well made. I rarely buy bags and this one looks like it's going to last long, I'm really happy with it!

Great work bag

While I was uncertain whether this bag would be too big for my needs, it's been just what I needed for all the things I tote to and from work. I can comfortably fit my notebooks, folders, computer, extra layer or rain jacket, lunch bag, etc. in the bag with room to spare! The side pockets are great, too, for holding a Nalgene or thermos. My on... Read Morely suggestion is that in the future, the shoulder straps are set slightly further apart for those of us with smaller chests/narrow shoulders but this issue was mitigated with more weight in the bag. All in all, I'm quite happy with it!

Great office bag

This bag is great. Looks professional enough for a back back for my office. The bag fits my larger technical laptop which is 17 it would fit a much larger laptop if you dont use the laptop slot. There are few pocket inside and i dont mind that at all. The laptop sleeve would alternatively easily fit by mac air and ipad pro. The roll top is cute but... Read More makes digging into the bag to find things a bit challenging. A sacrifice Im willing to make for a more polished looking backpack. I think the water holders on the outside are unnecessary. Personally Ill use them for pens and earphones. I dont recommend that anyone buy this for hiking. This would not be comfortable for a female for long period.

Lack of attention to detail on a bag designed for water resistance.

If youre reading this review on a ROLL TOP backpack you probably have some interest in the backpacks water resistance. Its a relatively affordable backpack so I wasnt expecting to be blown away but I was hoping for at least a competent level of water resistance for bike commuting. They treat the material with DWR and the roll top functions great, b... Read Moreut it all starts to breakdown when you look at the quick access zipper. The zipper allows you to access your laptop and the rest of the bag. This zipper is not water resistant at all. It is not coated, it is not a resistant material, and most importantly because of the design of the bag it doesnt even zip up all the way. So now you have a roll top bag design for water resistance with a vertical zipper that doesnt even fully seal letting water directly into the bags compartment where your laptop is. They could easily fix this by either using an actual water resistant zipper, or adding a zipper garage (its honestly laughable they didnt do this as it would be a tiny piece of fabric). Its a bummer because this size range with decent water resistance and water bottle pockets is pretty difficult to find. Hopefully they fix the zipper in the future, but I cant gamble with the contents of my bag every commute. I always want to support Patagonia because of their environmental commitments but they make it so hard sometimes.

Hey there, we appreciate the constructive feedback on our Arbor Roll Top Pack. As you had mentioned, this bag is water resistant, but it will not be waterproof. If you're looking for an alternative that is waterproof but non-submersible we recommend checking out the [Planing Roll Top Pack 35L](https://www.patagonia.com/product/planing-roll-top-surf-pack-35-liters/48470.html?dwvar_48470_color=TOIB&cgid=luggage-waterproof-bags-non-submersible) as a replacement. Otherwise, if you just need something that's weather resistant but not waterproof, the Black Hole Pack 32L would also be worth a look.
