The Patagonia Tres 25 Litre Commute Daypack transports everything you need for a productive day and can be used as a backpack, shoulder bag or briefcase.
Built to commute, our always-adaptable Tres Pack functions as a shoulder bag, briefcase or backpack so you can carry everything for a productive day—and then some. It has a zip-closing main compartment with plenty of room for notebooks, stacks of papers and a change of clothes for your after-work gym session. The main pocket also has a padded laptop sleeve to protect your 15" or smaller laptop, a zip security pocket, a mesh pocket with key fob, and a soft sleeve for your phone or other electronic device. A roomy outside pocket holds all the small, easily lost items of daily life, like chargers and charging cords, keys, sunglasses and your titanium spork for lunch. Highly breathable mesh lines the shoulder harness and back panel to wick moisture, dry quickly and increase ventilation. Shoulder straps, equipped with a sternum strap, quickly zip away when you want to use the Tres as a shoulder bag or briefcase. A reinforced grab handle makes hand carrying comfortable and secure. Two exterior daisy chains let you lash on a yoga mat or bike lock. Made from 630-denier 100% nylon (50% recycled/50% high-tenacity) plain weave with a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The lining is 200-denier 100% recycled polyester.

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 our own) into polyester fibers to produce many of their clothes.
Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
