A lightweight, durable option for long days on the trail or overnight outings, the Patagonia Nine Trails Backpack 36L offers ample top-loading storage, 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 36-liter pack has traditional top-loading access to the large main comportment but a front vertical zipper with two-way construction allows you gain quick access to the interior without removing the lid and also allows you to throw open the face of the pack for ease of loading and unloading. The lid has internal storage but can also be removed entirely when you want to shed weight or only need a minimalist set up. 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 36L 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
- Simple design, patagonia quality, somewhat overpriced
Likes: I really wanted to keep this bag because I loved the simple design and the fabric. The U shaped opening is perfect for easy access. Very good quality zippers. This bag has huge volume, seems like a 40L bag at least. There is a very expandable top compartment, also has a detachable top lid if you are travelling light. The smaller size worked well for me (5`4``female). The bag itself is very light weight. The shoulder straps & waist belt are nicely padded ( thus a bit bulky).
Dislikes: I returned this and kept osprey sirrus 36L for several reasons. The osprey was more comfortable to carry and it had a suspended backpanel for better ventilation. The side and front pockets don't expand much when it is fully packed. I think this bag is too big for day hikes but would work well for overnight trips. I did not like the color, too bright for my like. Much more expensive when compared to osprey.
