Patagonia Atom Pack 18L
Patagonia Atom Pack 18L has a large, zippered main pocket to hold a jacket, lunch and your guidebook, along with stretch-woven pockets (one with a zipper) to carry small, easily lost items. A side-entry zipper provides quick access to a protective, soft-lined electronics pocket that holds a tablet or 13″ or smaller laptop. So, the close-fitting, Atom Pack carries just what you need. On the front of the pack, a long zip-closing stash pocket keeps plane tickets, sunglasses and your breath mint collection handy. Two exterior daisy chains provide lashing options for securely holding a yoga mat or bike lock. Highly breathable mesh pads the shoulder harness and back panel to wick moisture, dry quickly and increase ventilation. A reinforced grab handle lets you carry the Atom in your hand briefcase-style. 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.

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.
