Custom tailored for a woman’s torso, this pack carries everything you expect from the classic Refugio but in more comfort.
Why is it that when you’re late, everything you need for the day seems to have gone missing? Keep your act together with the impeccably designed Refugio. Custom tailored in both size and fit for a woman’s torso, the Refugio has 3 main pockets to keep you organized without feeling fussy. The main compartment holds much of the load and features a lined tablet sleeve for quick access to your hand-held electronics and a padded computer sleeve that accommodates most 15" laptops (the same sleeve also accepts a hydration reservoir when your feet leave the cement). The second, zippered pocket holds smaller items, like a guidebook or thriller, and keeps USB cords and accessories organized. On the exterior, a front stash pocket is just right for plane tickets or other small items you want close at hand. Stretch-woven side pockets accommodate a full range of water-bottle shapes and sizes. Ultrasoft yet highly breathable mesh on the shoulder straps and back panel prevent overheating, the straps also have a straighter cut and feature more taper to fit a female torso. 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.
