When it comes to buying a new backpack, you may only consider the obvious factors like size and shape, but do you consider gender?
We’re beginning to see much more gender-specific backpacks coming to the market and it’s not about “pinking and shrinking” a male design, research has gone into the development of women’s specific bags and one such brand to tackle this is Patagonia.
If you’re not already familiar with the brand, Patagonia was born from the passion of climber, Yvon Chouinard, in the 1970’s. The company prides themselves on producing high-quality apparel and equipment for outdoor enthusiasts whilst adhering to their strong ethical and sustainable values.
We’ve gotten our hands on the new Patagonia Women’s Refugio Pack and put it to our pedalling test.
