Strap

Patagonia Arbor Classic Pack 25L
25L Rucker 3.0 is Live

Love it
I wanted more than a regular backpack, but not the full blown version. The chest strap and padded belt straps are just the ticket.

I'm new - no expert
This is my first real backpack that I've got. I first bought the medium (for some reason, who knows...
