Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great updates from the previous version. This new version is much lighter than my original Blade. The best new features are the interior zip pocket to hide a change of clothes on business trips, just in case your luggage is lost. The side handle is much easier to maneuver in airports. The full zip opening makes it much easier to access your stuff, and find little things hiding at the bottom. The fit and comfort on your back is outstanding compared to fashion or luggage brands. I have used on several trips and highly recommend the Blade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replaced my shoulder bag At first I wasn't sure about this bag. But I ended up buying it and loving it. For work I used to be in the field so I got used to carrying a big bag around with lots of stuff (and sometimes redundant stuff) around. "Two is one, one is none." Now I've taken a management job so most of my day is spent doing presentations for directors, etc. I now go to work by subway and I have to look the part. So I started carrying a leather attache case with me. I carry a large notepad, important files, a lunch container, a Goretex shell (in case of rain since I walk home), water bottle or Kleen Kanteen (for my morning coffee), headphones, my personal cell phone, and my work cell phone. Again, "Two is one, one is none". Of course this has made my shoulder bag really heavy. To stay fit, I also stand during my entire subway ride (45 mins each way) and also walk to and from the station (25 min walk). Carrying a shoulder bag for months has started to cause some back pain. I've tried other backpacks but the issue is they look too sporty or outdoorsy or had way too much molle all over it. I dropped by the Arcteryx store and I was intrigued by this pack. The salesperson said I could try to empty my entire shoulder bag into this pack to see how it works. To this day I find it works well for my use. I can carry it as a backpack when walking, hold it like a laptop bag when standing on the subway (especially if it's crowded), and if I'm showing up for an important meeting, I can still look the part even with a backpack. (of course, I got the black version...I don't think bright orange would work!) So yes, it's a niche product and I'm glad they made it. Is it for everyone? Probably not. But if you're like me and you need a comfortable backpack, be able to carry a lot, but yet be presentable when you walk into a room for a director's meeting, then this bag is something you should consider.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing missing This pack has everything thought out. Perfect for a school/work pack, or an overnight bag. I'm extremely impressed with how much you can fit in here and how well it stays organized. I'll be buying the blade 30 as well for multi day traveling.
