School Pack

This is a great pack for what I wanted -- taking laptop/lunch/all my items to and from school. It's great! Stylish and outdoorsy, but is fairly large.

The perfect size day pack

The perfect size day pack for an easy day on the water, its lightweight and comfortable.

Amazing bag overall

I have gotten so many compliments for my bag it's honestly insane. I love everything thing about it, i can also pack literally everything and the kitchen sink in it ! Only complaint I have about it is lack of side pockets, i feel like patagonia dropped the ball on that. Other than that it's a great bag for work or a small hike.

Fits everything

As a student teacher and grad student I have like a million things to carry and this backpack fits them all and helps me keep everything organized. The smaller pockets are so spacious and I can fit all my little keys, lotions, wallet, pens and pencils types of things while the big pocket easily fits my giant binder, laptop, iPad, notebooks, lunch, ...

Its a big pack but doesnt look super out of place at school. I love the colors and look!

Great for travel

The Arbor Lid Pack is stylish and durable. It held up great when traveling for two weeks, the straps were comfortable, and the pocket at the top was very useful for items that needed to be reached careful. As others have noted though, the pack really should have come with a bottle holder. Also, the size makes it less practical as a day-to-day pack.... Read More

Great Minimal Backpack for Work and Travel

I had bought the smaller version of this arbor back pack, previously - maybe 2 years ago. The things that bothered me about that specific purchase were 1) it wouldnt hold its structure and look like a sack 2) the straps were pretty uncomfortable. So then I decided to return the back pack and use the credit towards a new bag. This 28L Arbor definit... Read Moreely resolves all the issues I had with the smaller Arbor. The one thing I feel like it lacks and could have been provided without losing on its minimalistic look is a pocket for a water bottle and if I was being super critical unnecessarily I do feel like the cord that you use to synch the bag closed is longer than needed (theres probably a really thoughtful reason for an outdoorsy person which I am not). Hope the review helps! Love Patagonia and their mission.

Knapsack Does the Job

This is a very handy Knapsack as it holds a lot. We needed it for a trip - and my husband was able to bring it on board the plane along with his carry-on suitcase.

Everything I need, nothing I don't.

I just needed an all around backpack that wasn't overcomplicated but also wasn't tiny - this fits the bill. More than enough room for school supplies (the padded pocket actually fits my laptop) or a day trip (be it to a hotel or the lake). I really like that the front pocket doesn't cut off at the zipper but instead runs almost the f... Read Moreull height of the pack. Just know that there aren't any built-in organizers like for pens, etc.

No water bottle

Love the size, the amount you can fit, the top and front zipper pocket. BUT it has no side water bottle pockets. I almost returned it just because of that reason because I always use those pockets way more than I thought I did.

Hey Talia, thanks for the review. You're correct that this pack does not have side panel water bottle pockets. You can check on the features of any item by going to it's product page and scrolling down to the tab labeled "Specs & Features". Under this tab you will find all kinds of information from fabric, to pockets, to dimensions, etc. We recommend checking out the [Refugio Daypack 30L](https://www.patagonia.com/product/refugio-daypack-30-liters/47928.html?dwvar_47928_color=AGPL&cgid=root) if you're looking for something that's a similar size but includes those water bottle pockets.

Surprisingly great

I needed a backpack for school/hiking and I loved the look of this bag but it didnt have side pockets and I couldnt tell how big the bag is. Turns out its a great size with the main compartment being massive, the smaller compartment which could use sub pockets inside but its fine, and theres a pocket in the hood flap. I love the color a lot more in... Read More person too. I do recommend this and figured people would want another review since the bag only has one currently. Great quality though.

Awesome Bag!

I love this bag! It's my designated climbing gym bag, but also big enough to take on a day trip out to the crag. It fits A LOT. I bring my harness, 2 belay devices, 2 pairs of shoes, boulder bucket, and chalk bag to the gym. I can also throw in my 10 quick draws and a sweatshirt if I need to bring it outside. I don't love the drawstring c... Read Morelosure underneath the top flap, but it does make for easy access to everything. The sip pockets in the front and under the lid are convenient for storing my phone, keys, tape, and anything else small that I need.
