Patagonia Arbor Day Pack Commute 20 Litre
The Patagonia 20 Litre Arbor Daypack is a classic front-loader with padded laptop sleeve and front accessory pockets to haul everything you need in a down-to-earth way.
An open-and-shut case for lightning-fast access, the sleek Patagonia Arbor Daypack has a zippered, panel-loading design so you can stuff your gear in and go. Made from all-recycled fabrics—a durable 600-denier 100% recycled and solution-dyed polyester shell with a lining of 200-denier 100% recycled polyester; the main compartment carries a day’s worth of goods and includes a raised, padded laptop sleeve to protect your 15" computer from hard knocks; it also doubles as an insulated hydration reservoir when you hit the trails. A zippered outside pocket keeps small items like your phone and sunglasses handy. The padded Human Curve shoulder straps provide all-day, ergonomic comfort for cruising through town or hiking through open country. Finer points include a top-mounted, reinforced haul handle and a bottom grab loop. Both fabrics have a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

Both with a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish
DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.
In 1993, Patagonia adopted fleece into their product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. They were the first outdoor clothing manufacturer to do so. PCR® clothing was a positive step towards a more sustainable system – one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Today, Patagonia are able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. They now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including their own) into polyester fibers to produce many of our clothes.
Using recycled polyester lessens our dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs discards and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
