Overall great backpack.I have been using my Patagonia Paxat 32L for about six weeks now. I live in central Wisconsin and walk to work year-round. I am coming off of a Timbuk2 messenger bag (the commuter series) and was looking for something more comfortable with compartmentalized storage that would also accommodate a laptop. I am happy to report that the Paxat lives up to those expectations quite well.
The main compartment will easily hold a change of clothes, running shoes and some misc.
The front compartment is very deep unlike most which for me is perfect because I carry an organizer that holds misc cords, chargers, external drives etc. The organizer is aprox 6"x9" closed and fits perfectly in the bottom of the front pocket. Then towards the top of the pocket is a smaller pocket good for shades, keys etc - along with some smaller ones for pens, phone, whatever.
Typical water bottle pocket on one side and a zippered pocket on the other - both very useful but nothing really outstanding about either.
The laptop pocket is (in my opinion) very nice. Prior to buying this pack the only negative reviews I read about it were directed towards this pocket. Some claimed that it isn't accessible enough because the zippers are actually behind the shoulder straps - which is true. You have to reach under the apex of the straps to run the zippers down. Or fold the straps forward (inverting them) over the front of the pack. I'll agree that is does add a little extra effort but what you gain is a laptop/tablet pocket that zips completely open! You can unzip this pocket and literally fillet the pack apart (eg for going through airport security). Not to mention aside from the main laptop pocket there is one opposite of it that is perfect for iPads etc. So compared to other packs that typically have a top zipper that allows you to slide a laptop in, which is super convenient - this one sacrifices a bit of convenience for a net gain in function (again in my opinion).
There are a couple more misc features - a small fleece lined pocket on top that I assume is would be used for shades not kept in a case. And the expandable outside front pocket. This one I have found to be great for headphones (I use Bohn bluetooth which fit perfectly) or a folded rain jacket. You get the idea.
Six weeks in the only negative thing I can say about the pack is that I wish the shoulder strap webbing was a little wider/thicker. The webbing (not that padded strap) is only .77" wide and .0035" thick. Def narrower and thinner than I'm used to. I find that the straps tend to "leak" out after walking 15-20min. Not much but enough to notice. Hoping after it breaks in a bit more they will settle in.
That's about it. Not sure if you can from this site but if you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them.

Is the laptop sleeve also ported for hydration?
Asked by: hbailey
Hiya, thanks for the question! Yes, the laptop compartment is ported for hydration. It should fit a 3 liter bladder. Hope this helps!
