The Patagonia Refugio 28L Pack is a school backpack with plenty of pockets for organizing everything you need to bring from class to class. The first zipper from the back panel is a dedicated laptop sleeve, which is padded and elevated so your expensive laptop (up to 15 inches) won't touch the ground. The main compartment carries your class books, lunch, or a hoodie for the days when the administration just can't seem to control the temperature. A large front panel is organization-central for pens, keys, and even a paperback or e-reader. The pack has two small stash pockets, the vertical one great for your phone and wallet, while the horizontal is lined for protecting your Jackie-O shades (sport shades for the dudes). Everything carries comfortably on your back due to the Air Flow mesh shoulder straps and back panel, keeping you cool on hot days. School can be the pits sometimes, so don't be afraid to take this puppy out on day hikes over the weekend, the laptop sleeve conveniently fits a hydration bladder.

DWR tech

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.

One of the reviews said that her Refugio 28L backpack can fit her 17" laptop. So would I be fine getting this backpack? (Mines an 15.6" laptop and I know that the backpack holds up to 15")

Asked by: fted
Hey there, Thanks for the awesome question. I have checked this item personally with a 17 inch laptop, and although the specs say 15 inch laptops are all it fits, that is incorrect. It CAN fit a 17 inch as well. Therefore your 15.6 in will fit just fine! I hope this helps.

What's the suggested hydration bladder size for this pack? Any specific brands/models that work better?

Asked by: Matt
Thanks for the question! A 2L will be a good fit, but a 3L will work too - just might take up a little more room since it is on the larger side. My brand suggestion is a CamelBak. I included a link below for you to check out. Hope this helps!

is this backpack machine washable? Refugio 28L

Asked by: Talker 44
Thanks for the question. Patagonia does not recommend machine washing their packs, you will want to hand wash it with dish soap or regular detergent. Hope this helps!
