Patagonia Refugio Backpack Review (2 Weeks of Use)
But if you want to get something like down in there, it is a little bit tight. So, just something to keep in mind, but overall it you know, was very comfortable to carry on a hike and also day to day, while going to work. So there you have it

Patagonia Refugio Backpack Review - Awesome 28L All-Purpose Pack
I really like the protection that that offers for your laptop, and i just really like its overall aesthetic. The bag is also super comfortable to wear so again, if you're, just looking for something that's going to have a more modern or maybe professional aesthetic, and it's going to offer a nice amount of capacity and organization, then that's going to be a great option to keep In mind as well with that being said, the patagonia refugio holds up really well against all those bags and, if you're looking for something that's going to offer a great build quality plenty of space and a really nice organizational layout, then this is going to be a Great option to check out and i'm definitely curious to hear what you guys think of this bag and if there are any similar options that you think i should feature on the channel.
