Zen design meets catch-all versatility in the Refugio, Patagonia's most popular backpack. With three main pockets it keeps you organised without feeling fussy. The main compartment holds much of the load and comes with a raised, padded sleeve that closes with a buckle and accommodates most 15” laptops. This sleeve also accepts a hydration reservoir when your feet leave the cement. The second, zip-closing pocket holds smaller items like a paperback or tablet, pens, business cards, and keys. Stretch-woven side pockets accommodate a full range of water-bottle shapes and sizes. Air Flow mesh on the shoulder straps and back panel prevent overheating. The sternum strap has an emergency whistle, and compression straps stabilise contents. Made from 450-denier 100% polyester (58% recycled), with a 450-denier 100% polyester (56% recycled) base. The lining is 200-denier 100% polyester. All fabrics have a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
“just the right pack. I bought this bag to replace my 13 years old targus laptop backpack. The instant difference is this refugio is so light. I barely feel it on my back if without a laptop. My targus was a lot heavier. This patagonia refugio 15" is the perfect size for me for every day commute on the train to work. I put my lunch box ,a light jacket, a umbrella in the main compartment , other little things in the smaller pockets. Of course , the bag has padded laptop compartment with more than enough room to put in my 13" laptop. The two side pockets are perfect for my water bottle and wet umbrella. But there is no perfect bag. The materiel feels very plastic. I guess because they are recycled polyester from recycled drink bottles. I don't expect it will last 13 years like my previous bag. Secondly, i wish the top handle can be thicker and padded. Carrying the half loaded bag with the slim thin top handle is not very comfortable. Over all it's a bag i really like.”
“Great Bag For Outdoors and Office. It's a patagonia, what more can i say? Solid all round performer!”
“Organisational heaven. Love this bag, all the necessary pockets for organising & keeping your belongings safe. The laptop sleeve is almost invisible which is great if you don't want to advertise to everyone that you're carrying a laptop. Weight distribution is excellent, very comfortable and well thought out bag, as well as looking great!”
“Great bag - plenty of space. I purchased this bag because i needed something for overseas travel that would fit my laptop. The laptop compartment is great. My 15 inch macbook pro fits perfectly. There is also plenty of room for jumpers, travel pillow, documents etc etc. The drink bottle holders on each side are awesome too. Very happy.”
