This is my favorite technical Patagonia backpack I have had. Minimalist design with a hug-your-body comfortable fit that I am happy does not include an internal frame. Super comfortable for all-day wear with beefy fabric that you don't have to worry about scraping on rocks. Designed so you can stuff it full or keep it mostly empty without losi...

Wanted to love...
This pack looked like it checked all the boxes for what I wanted for in a day-plus pack. However, the good design was poorly executed. Of the 7 external pockets only 1 is truly functional. The "fame sheet" is a joke and might as well not be be there and offers no suspension. Since the back panel does not support weight (it crumples when l...

If you don't use pockets and only carry a jacket and lunch on your hikes then this pack is for you!

Light, efficient, stylish, functional
This pack is very spacious and strikes a balance between pockets for organization and space for larger gear and clothes. Even when it is not full, the pack cinches down nicely and fits comfortably. There are lots of straps on the outside for hooking in hiking poles or other gear. My favorite feature is the built in rain cover, genius! My only compl... Read Moreaints are 1) that I wish the small pocket on the inside was positioned differently; as is, it gets in the way of the hose on my hydration pack, making it hard to access the pocket or use it without pinching the hose, 2) a solution for the straps on the exterior sleeve and top lid, they kinda just flap in the wind unless stuffed into the exterior sleeve, 3) the shoulder straps are very breathable and contribute to the pack's lightness, but could stand to be sturdier, something akin to the straps on the Refugio. All in all a great pack, functional, and my go-to for days on the trail.
Thanks so much for your thoughtful and detailed feedback on this relatively new line of packs. We appreciate it, Luke!
Perfect size, perfect weight
I was looking for a simple, light weight pack that I could use for daily use on the Camino de Santiago, and this pack is it. The Altiva is the perfect balance between size and weight with enough room for all the essentials, while still having the small essentials that make this pack work day after day. The special bonus is the built-in rain cover.
Streamlined, Efficient When its Packed
Got this pack since I wanted a more hiking-specific backpack and loved the previous generation of the Ascensionist. There are a lot of similarities between the two packs, including how svelte they are, how simple (in a good way) they are and also how durable they are. I took the Altvia on a 10-day trip through Oregon, lugging daily necessities for ... Read Moretwo adults and a 4-year-old on city days but also on long days in the Mt. Hood Wilderness and along the Oregon coast. Its held up great and been a great companion and honestly a hell of a lot more comfortable than my Refugio. The one little annoyance I had was the lack of compression down the main compartment of the backpack. Or maybe its just how the pocket itself is attached to the backpack body: Since the top brain pocket is pretty massive, if you fill even half of it and dont have the main compartment of the pack filled, the foam sheet begins to bend into your back. If you just toss a puffy or fleece to eat up volume in there, though, its perfect.
I love this pack! It is super versatile where I can take it skinning, use it for work, and everything in between. It fits everything I need and the hip pockets are super helpful. They're not big enough for a phone but they fit my keys, headphones, and a couple masks with no problem.
Simple, versatile, and lightweight
This is an excellent all around pack for skiing and hiking. The top lid/closure system takes some getting used to, but is actually quite efficient and expandable. The waist belt is appreciated for skiing and the waist pockets are adequate, if not slightly small.
