Arbor Grande Pack 32L - Piton Purple
From Patagonia and made from 100% recycled polyester, the Arbor Grande is the perfect larger pack for day to day use or a short trip.
The Arbor Grande has a main compartment that closes with a large flap pocket and holds your inventory of everyday goods. A zippered pocket beneath the lid stashes a wallet and phone. Inside, a raised, padded laptop sleeve protects your computer from jarring knocks, fitting most 15" laptops and secures with a buckle closure.
A front stash pocket secures with a diagonal zipper and provides a convenient location for essential items you need to access quickly. There's a tall side compartment on the side, perfect for a water bottle, and on the other side zip access that allows access to the main compartment of the bag, making things you’ve packed in easier to access. Even with heavier loads this bag remains comfortable to carry, with Human Curve® shoulder straps conform ergonomically to your shoulders and upper chest for all-day comfort.
|The largest size of Patagonia’s core pack range, the Arbor Grande is great for either a day pack or can stretch to a long weekend. The quick access zip making it particularly useful on a trip. It’s water resistant coating and double layers of material mean it’ll stand up in most rain, but if water resistance is a priority we’d maybe recommend the 30L Black Hole Pack as an alternative.|

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
Patagonia was founded by Yvon Chouinard in 1973, the company's roots are in clothing for rock and alpine climbing, but they now produce a diverse mix of apparel targeted towards skiers, snowboarders, surfers and climbers. Patagonia are a world leader in creating ethical, sustainable clothing.
Recycled Polyester: Patagonia recycle used soda bottles, unusable manufacturing waste and worn out garments (including their own) into polyester fibres - making positive steps towards a more sustainable system, one that uses fewer resources, discards less and better protects people’s health.
Using recycled polyester lessens the dependence on petroleum as a raw material source, curbs the discard of plastic waste and reduces toxic emissions from incinerators.
Manufacture: The Arbor Grande Pack’s are made in Viet Nam at the Kanaan Saigon Co. Sewing factory, who have been a Patagonia supplier since 2002. Kanaan Saigon are committed to continuous improvement in their factory, and work closely with Patagonia on social and environmental performance. One specific initiative is that each year on International Children’s Day, Kanaan Saigon promotes the importance of education by giving educational gifts to the children of its employees, reducing the financial burden of sending children to school.
