Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice improvements Had the first gen blade 24. Replaced on account of it being stolen. It was a really solid backpack, with just a few things which could have been improved upon. The light grey displayed the dirt too easily. The user side laptop sleeve was too rigid when occupied. It fell just short of being useful as an overnighter. Also the side handle was nice, but the backpack straps really got in the way. Everything has been sorted out in this revision. I miss the old backpack straps a little, but far more was gained in this release than lost. Loving the bag

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultimate commuter pack. I was not sure about the minimalist approach at first. I use the zipper-closed layer closest to my back for heavier EDC items and a rain jacket. I carry my laptop in the next sleeve. Lighter items and things I need easy access to are in the side zip opening compartment which you can use like a messenger bag by swinging off the left shoulder and around to the front. The one complaint I have about this pack is that Arc'teryx says there is a compartment for a water bottle and there is not. It has to lay inside or hang from a 'biner off the webbing outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great hybrid product. Great synthesis of briefcase and overnight carrier for short travel. Super quality.
