Patagonia Refugio 28L Backpack - by Mitchell from Madison Wisconsin WI
The Patagonia backpack is a good school backpack, well stitched and looks good. Would use for 1-10 mile hikes but do not think I would want a backpack this small for anything longer. Quite happy with it, hoping it breaks in a little bit with some time.
good laptop bag - by Derek from Mad City `sconsin
Perfect size for carrying around a macbook. Its probably too small for serious hiking trips, but if you just need a bag for school or around town, this one is the ticket.
Patagonia Always Delivers! - by Candice from WI
The Refugio Pack 28L Backpack is typical Patagonia. It is packed with great features`;` ample space inside the zippers, plenty of side pockets for easy access to necessities, comfort cushions on the back, and straps to go across the chest to relieve strain and provide more support.
Doesnt have enough features - by Ethan from WI
The Refugio looks nice, but it doesnt have a waist strap or buckles around the outside for wet clothes or yoga mat or something bulky. I was impressed though when I stuffed it full of books and it didnt feel bulky or full.
