Durable Water Repellant
DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is a coating that is applied to fabrics which makes them water-resistant, or hydrophobic. A DWR finish doesn't interfere with breathability, which makes it perfect for adverse conditions in the backcountry.

Perfect Beach BackpackGreat back pack. Lots of pockets, love the fact that the side pockets are zippered so you can secure your large water bottles. The two buckles on the front are very useful for strapping in a towel. Only downside is the main zipper is a little funky, there's straps on the side to pull it down. If you don't use the straps the corners of the zipper will stick up.

Fantastic Backpack for TravellingI'm not one who would normally spend a lot of money on a backpack, but I read the reviews and this backpack seemed to check off the most boxes. I like to keep backpacks for a long time so I like the fact that Patagonia offers a service to repair broken items. I was worried about the fact that there is not a place to hold a water bottle of the exterior portion of the backpack, but 20 oz. water bottles do fit in the side pockets. The feature I was most excited about was the water resistant interior pocket. While I've been very pleased with how the pockets protects my items in the rain, I do find it difficult to get larger items into the backpack. My camera back has be turned onto the thin side to get the back through the opening where I can then set it upright once I get it in. The two exterior buckles do wonders for saving space that a rain jacket or towel would take up. The laptop pocket fits my 15.6 inch screen laptop well (I do not believe a 17 inch screen would fit).
