Why we made this
A premium, long-lasting commuter pack with a clean Macpac aesthetic, designed for people travelling with a laptop.
  • Product Description
    Here at Macpac, we believe the most important thing we can do is create quality gear that's beautifully designed and better for the planet. That's why we crafted the Ara 25. It's designed for people who want a premium day-pack for commuting or travelling with a laptop and other digital devices. We have using environment-friendly Eco AzTec® 8 Canvas because it's proven to go the distance: sustainability begins with gear that lasts a long time. Good design also responds to the modern context, that's why this pack incorporates RFID blocking materials in the lid pocket, for digital security. Because we appreciate uncluttered beauty, we have chosen to use clean lines in the Ara pack, echoing the aesthetic of Macpac's heritage, born in the New Zealand's hardest spaces. Ideal for life in the city, this pack this pack can also be used for day walking.

I use this for school, but I will probably use it as an everyday backpack as it is so sleek and functional. To be honest, for school I would prefer a bigger bag but for most people i'm sure it will work perfectly!

Versatile bag with a minor design flaw
We bought this bag to use as a nappy bag because it is well made and has lots of storage and pockets. We have tested it out as a day pack and a weekend bag so far. It fits so much! We had enough room for all of our clothes for 2 nights away - plus a water bottle.
My only complaint is that the waist strap has bits at the bottom of the bag that dig in and bump against my back when I am not wearing the strap. The quality of this bag is what I would expect from Macpac and I am sure we will get a lot of use out of it even after we no longer need it for nappies!

Easy to use day-pack
This pack as a good length, enough storage capacity and is not too large, in other words fits perfect. Easy access to the inside with smart choice of pockets, have a look at the photos from the webpage, nicely done by Macpac. So that is why I had to order it, even that way long from NZ to Europe :-)

Great day pack
Great day pack. I used the Ara 25L backpack on a four week trip to Egypt and Jordan. I liked the clean sleek look without exterior pockets. The exterior Aztec fabric was sturdy, but it wasn’t easy to clean off mud from the Dead Sea. The main compartment could fit two large bottles of water with space to spare for daily essentials (small camera, electronics, sunscreen etc). The lid pocket was very handy for small items. The concealed side pockets were useful to store phones/cameras and other quick access items.
Highly recommend. Purchased to replace my Macpac Tuatara 25L that broke (zippers) after six years.
