Patagonia knows people want to bring technology with them when they decide to enjoy their vacation. These backpacks are specifically made for those who want to get the most out of their backpacks in terms of space and protection.

The Arbor is great for those who want a lightweight and comfortable bag to carry their supplies around during a trip abroad.

Inspired by the design of traditional toting bags, the Toromiro offers great support for your back thanks to its strong harnesses and hip centered design.

The Toromiro is great for traveling throughout cities with your essential supplies, but if you're looking to hike or trek you'll want the Arbor instead.
