Ordered a 2nd one
Ordered this pack in khaki for my daughter. After a year of every day use with heavy books for school, it still looks and performs the same. She loves it. Just ordered a second one for my other daughter in purple. She also loves the bag. I could see these lasting and looking good for at least another year if not two, maybe even longer...
Simple and sturdy
This pack is great! The construction is sturdy and appears to be of very good quality. It is stylish and functional. The only downside is I would not use it with a lot of weight, because the waist strap is not so useful, and it does not have a chest strap. But I suppose that is not it's intended use anyway. Overall great daily pack! Thanks pat... Read Moreagonia!
decent everyday uni bag
Got this bag for Uni so I can carry all my text books and my laptop and extra stuff with me every day. Its the perfect size, fits everything, doesn't look ridiculously large or out of place on campus and seems to be of hardwearing fabric. only complaint is that there are no side drink pockets and the front zip picket is a bit hard to use whe...

classic, stylish, multi-functional
I love the colour and design of this bag and the capacity is fantastic. So far I have only used it for work, it fits everything I need, still with a lot of space and does not look too bulky for everyday use but would also be great for trips away. I've had a lot of heavy things in here but the straps are supportive and feels much better on my b... Read Moreack than my previous backpack. Exactly what I wanted.
Pretty but not functional
There’s no organization inside the bag, it’s just really a basic bag with a single hollow space inside. It’s not easy to open and close as you have to press both springs to click it open or shut. The waist strap is thin and uncomfortable to us, and even though it is very rarely useful there isn’t an easy way to put it away or hide it. Quite simple... Read More this bag is the biggest disappointment I’ve had from Patagonia. I’m surprised that anyone uses it on a day to day basis.

The previous version was better.
Returned it. Had a Arbor 26L - their previous version. The pervious version material was superior. Very disappointed in the new one. It seems to be a running theme where they have something great and then the updated generation lacks in material or fit. Still Iove the company tho.
Thanks so much for your feedback, Travis! It is definitely disappointing not finding the new fits/designs as favorable as the previous ones. Your feedback has been passed along to the appropriate team, and we've emailed you with an update regarding your refund.
Classic Pack 25L
I love my Arbor Classic Pack. I use it for holding my stuff for school and as my day to day book bag. Overall, it is a great product and i would highly recommend it to anyone looking at book bags. The only thing I wish was different about the bag was that the mouth piece was a tad larger so it would be easier to put books in and out of it. Despite ... Read Morethat small fact it is still an awesome bag and definitely worth the buy.
Durable, roomy, and waterproof!
Bought this backpack about three weeks ago to replace my North Face backpack that I'd had for 8 years; was hoping to get something with less compartments that would work for my everyday commute in the city and for my international trips for work. Happy to say it is living up to my expectations! Took it on a work trip to Bangladesh and on my re... Read Moregular commute in NYC and it fared well in all environments (humid, rainy, and lugged around on trains and planes). I love the fact that it's just one large compartment so it can easily convert from an everyday bag to a small packable carry-on for light travelers like me - and it looks good whether it's nearly empty or totally full! Looking forward to using this bag for years to come.
Beautiful Design- A Little Too Big for Casual Office Use
I was looking for a bag to use shlepping a few things to and from work. I loved the material and simple design of the bag-the front pocket is perfect for pens, phone and keys and the main section is simple and spacious. Unfortunately after receiving the pack in the mail I realized a spiral and planner would be swallowed up in the main section. If I... Read More needed a bag for traveling with bulky items like clothing, books, groceries or lunches I think this would be great but for me the pack is a little too large for my paper needs.
Hi Caitlin, thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We're sorry to hear the pack isn't working out. We definitely want you to have a pack that you're happy with so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html#searchterm=return).

black arbor pack
This bag is really nice for travel, fits well in overhead compartments and under seats. I used it on a 20 day Europe trip, and being able to adjust the size of the pack with the clip straps was really convenient. I am pretty tall for a girl, 5’10”, so this pack being as big as it is doesn’t look weird, but since it’s so tall, it’s very difficult to... Read More find things. I planned on using it for school, but unless I use a lot of individual pouches, it will be hard to find anything small, such as headphones or my pencil case. Definitely durable though, it shows no signs of wear.
Great bag for college students.
Have only been using it for about a month now but I can already tell that it's built to last. The quality is amazing. The water proofing means that not a single drop of water gets into the bag. I'm really happy with it and I'm looking forward to using it for the next few years. One thing to note is the piece of thread that hangs from...

bag so nice i bought it twice!
So I bought my first arbor pack in 2015, and used it for high school every day. when it began to look dirty and had a few tears, i knew i wanted to re-buy the pack. It has two great smaller pockets for keys, gum, pens... and then a big pack with a laptop case. I carry my laptop, a nalgene, a file folder, coffee cup, jacket, snacks, notebooks, and i... Read More still have room for more. I dont love zippers on my bags, so this is perfect for me. It also is very comfy and usable. I have used it on hikes but prefer a back with zippers and water bottle pockets. All in all, this bag is great for school, but not for mountaneering.
