We test our gear on a variety of levels. Our athletes and ambassadors are responsible for putting the latest designs and fabrics through the paces before we'll add a new product to our lineup. But just because something reaches our shelves doesn't mean testing is over. Once a new item shows up in our catalogs, our Customer Service staff gets busy ground-truthing the latest offerings. They know the questions our customers will be asking, and turn that attention to our gear.
Product Report - MLC and Overhead Shed
Airline Travel – Weekend Trip
Tested by: Skye, Patagonia Online Customer Service
I recently tested a couple pieces of Patagonia luggage on Friday, April 13th, an excellent day for air travel. I commenced packing the night before since my flight was due to leave at the crack of dawn the following morning. I was only going for an extended 3-day weekend and the weather in Park City was supposedly "lovely" so I didn't need to bring much. I decided on the MLC bag and the Overhead Shed.
