Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. It's cute to think of a fabric as being afraid of water. Now if only they could make a bearphobic coating. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Are you going work/class/the trail? Rule #1 is always look good, and this pack brings the funk.Patagonia makes excellent products, and the Black Hole line of packs is one of the best. I purchased this backpack after realizing I needed to step up my style game en route to class. ,,,,The material of this pack is unbeatable. It's incredibly lightweight, durable, and so water-resistant I think I would have to dive in a lake for my stuff to get wet. As a 5'9" 128lb *total* babe, the 35L looks decently larger on my back than my previous 28L North Face pack, but I think it will just take some getting used to. As a college student, I need and appreciate a little more room for books, a laptop, lunch, and gym clothes. This pack can hold all of my junk and then some. The laptop sleeve is well padded, and the blue interior is a fun touch. The front external pocket is my favorite--it's perfect place to stash my sunglasses and tater tots. ,,,,Lastly and most importantly, I have picked up tons of babes since buying this backpack. If you're thinking about getting this pack, do so immediately.
