Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Compartment

Patagonia Arbor 20L Day Pack

(1/1)

The rest of the main compartment is a top load bottomless pit, so use those packing cubes people! The interior lining color differs from pack to pack depending on the exterior color you choose. However, Patagonia made sure to use different color exterior and interior colors, which we found really helpful when searching for gear inside the pack.

Size

Patagonia Arbor 20L Day Pack

(1/1)

I am a college student, and I have been meaning to downsize my backpack for a while now. Before, I was lugging around an excessively large backpack that was too bulky. I saw this backpack, and I knew it would be a great fit! It is big enough to fit a laptop, two notebooks, a 32oz waterbottle, and a few other essentials, yet it still manages to be light! I would definitely recommend getting this if you are a student, it has made my life a whole lot simpler!

Strap

Patagonia Arbor 20L Day Pack

(1/1)

We typically have it tightly bucked against the pack, utilizing the provided elastic keepers to keep the straps from dangling. It would be nice to have the option to remove this since we have chosen not to use it majority of the time. Also, keep a close eye on your elastic keepers, as one of ours fell off during our travels which was a bit sad. Luckily, when we reached out anonymously, Patagonia was super helpful and sent us a free replacement in a very timely manner
