Made with Patagonia's infamously tough Black Hole Duffel fabric, this condensed shoulder bag is highly water-resistant, super durable and designed to carry the essentials whether you’re traveling via bike, rails or plane. The top flap opens to expose the main compartment, which holds the bulkier items - rain shell, paperwork, snacks. A padded sleeve inside accommodates most 13" laptops and tablets to keep them protected from the wear and tear of going places. Interior mesh pockets, including a stealthy zippered pocket, provide a secure location for pens, passport and lunch money. A handy exterior pocket opens via a moisture-shedding, reverse-coil zipper on the top flap.
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.
Bluesign approved fabric
Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in their materials supply chain, and to assist them with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process.
Bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.
