Disorganization shouldn't be the impression you leave behind. A carry-all for your life's stuff, the female-specific Cascada 30L Backpack from Patagonia
has two large compartments and plenty of pockets to hold everything from a laptop to your keys. The main pocket contains bulky items and features a padded computer sleeve that's raised above the bottom of the pack to protect a 17-inch or smaller laptop from hard knocks. The sleeve, equipped with a tube port, accepts a hydration reservoir (not included) when you take your load cross-country. The secondary compartment has a lanyard for keys and organizational pockets for smaller stuff. A soft microfleece-lined pocket protects sunglasses
; two external lash straps hold a yoga mat or a freshly baked baguette. An exterior shock cord cinches down bulky items, and dual stretch-woven side pockets keep water bottles within reach. Airflow mesh shoulder straps with ergonomic shaping make carrying more comfortable in warm weather. Made from a tough yet supple 420-denier nylon oxford plain weave with 840-denier ballistics nylon reinforcements. The lining is 200-denier polyester. All fabrics have a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

Just what I was looking for!
January 17, 2012
I carry this backpack everyday to school. It is designed well and sits comfortably on the shoulders and back, even walking around campus all day. It has a lot of storage space and is able to fit my 15" laptop as well as notebooks and books. The front pockets are good for small items. I will also be using the pack for hiking trips and am sure I will be just as pleased.
Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Great value
