The sporty Patagonia 25 Litre Arbor Classic Daypack is equipped with a padded laptop sleeve to hold most 15" laptops, and harkens back to Patagonia's heritage in packs.
When you’ve been making packs for more than 40 years, you can’t help but revisit the functionality of a classic design. Harkening back to their heritage in packs, the Patagonia Arbor Classic Pack carries almost everything you need in one large, main compartment. It closes with a drawcord and seals with a large flap pocket to hold your inventory of everyday goods—from books, lunch and a shell, to climbing shoes and chalkbag. A zippered pocket beneath the lid stashes a wallet and phone out of view. Inside, a raised, padded sleeve fits most 15" laptops and also doubles as an insulated hydration reservoir when you hit the trails. A small, zippered front pocket holds your keys, sunglasses and boarding pass. Human Curve straps conform ergonomically to your shoulders and upper chest for all-day comfort under loads. Patagonia are now making the Arbor Classic from all-recycled fabrics—a durable 600-denier 100% recycled and solution-dyed polyester shell with a lining of 200-denier 100% recycled polyester. Both fabrics have a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
In 1993, Patagonia adopted fleece into their product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. They were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Today, Patagonia are able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. They now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including their own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.
Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
