A lightweight, durable option for long days on the trail, the Patagonia Nine Trails Backpack 28L offers panel-loading access, load-carrying comfort, and the rugged durability of Cordura construction.
A foam and mesh backpanel and padded shoulder straps provide carrying comfort while load lifters, a sliding sternum strap, and a padded and adjustable waistbelt add further load stability and enhance fit. The 210D Cordura ripstop face fabric holds up to the rigors of repeated backcountry use and both it and the 200D polyester internal lining have PU coatings and durable water repellent treatments to bolster all-condition performance and durability.
The panel-loading 28-liter packbag is accessed through a wide-opening U-shaped zipper that provides easy loading and unloading. There is a large front stretch pocket and two large stretch side pockets that provide additional storage options and keep layers and other gear in close reach. Internal pockets and zippered waistbelt pockets offer even more organization. A lined internal sleeve makes the pack hydration compatible (hydration system not included).
The Patagonia Nine Trails Backpack 28L is available in your choice of colors and Small/Medium (best fits 16"-19" torso lengths) and Large/Xlarge (19"-22") size options.

Real Customer Reviews
- Perfect For Day Hikes
Likes: I like the minimal design. The main compartment has just the right amount of space to carry what I need when day hiking/fast packing. I’ve used this pack on a couple 15-20 mile day hikes and it carries very well. The shoulder padding is very comfortable, along with the back panel, and hip belt. The giant front pouch is awesome for storing my jacket or fleece. As far as storage and comfort go, I have zero issues.
Dislikes: The bladder hose port. I would’ve preferred above the left or right shoulder strap instead of top center.
It almost feels like the front and side pouches will tend to stretch over time depending on how much I’m stuffing in them.
