Patagonia Arbor Classic Pack 25L
When you’ve been making packs for more than 40 years you can’t help but revisit the functionality of a classic design. Harkening back to our heritage in packs, the Arbor Classic Pack carries most everything you need in one large, main compartment. It closes with a drawcord and seals with a large flap pocket to hold your inventory of everyday goods—from books, lunch and a shell, to climbing shoes and chalkbag. A zippered pocket beneath the lid stashes a wallet and phone out of view. Inside, a raised, padded sleeve protects most 15″ laptops from hard knocks and also doubles as an insulated hydration reservoir when you hit the trails. A small, zippered front pocket holds your keys, sunglasses and boarding pass. Human Curve straps conform ergonomically to your shoulders and upper chest for all-day comfort under loads. We’re now making the Arbor Classic from all-recycled fabrics—a durable 600-denier 100% recycled and solution-dyed polyester shell with a lining of 200-denier 100% recycled polyester. Both fabrics have a polyurethane coating and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

In 1993, we adopted fleece into our product line made from post consumer recycled (PCR) plastic soda bottles. We 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, we’re able to utilize more sources for recycled polyester and offer it on more garments such as Capilene® baselayers, shell jackets, board shorts, and fleece. We now recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste, and worn out garments (including our 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.
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.
