Custom tailored for a woman’s torso, the Patagonia Refugio 26 Litre Commute Daypack carries everything you expect from the classic Refugio but in more comfort.
Keep your act together with the impeccably designed Patagonia Women’s Refugio 26 Litre Commute Daypack. Custom tailored in both size and fit for a woman’s torso, the Patagonia Refugio has three main pockets to keep you organized without feeling fussy. The main compartment holds much of the load and features a lined tablet sleeve for quick access to your handheld electronics and a padded computer sleeve that accommodates most 15" laptops (the same sleeve also accepts a hydration reservoir when your feet leave the cement). The second, zippered pocket holds smaller items, like a guidebook or thriller, and keeps your USB cords and accessories organized. On the exterior, a front stash pocket is just right for plane tickets or other small items you want close at hand. Stretch-woven side pockets accommodate a full range of water-bottle shapes and sizes. Ultrasoft yet highly breathable mesh on the shoulder straps and back panel prevent overheating; the shoulder straps have a straighter cut and feature more taper to fit a female torso. Made from 630-denier 100% nylon (50% recycled/50% high-tenacity) plain weave with a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. The lining is 200-denier 100% recycled polyester.

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.
