Description

Quintessential daypack with exceptional breathability and accessibility.

Arc'teryx had breathability and comfort in mind when designing the Axios 25 Daypack. An Aerofoam back panel plus Spacermesh straps and hip-belt will let perspiration evaporate away instead of collecting on your shirt. A lightweight, super-sleek design won't hamper your trail travels, and a full-length panel loading zipper configuration lets you access the pack's contents without wasting half your day digging around.
  • Dual aluminum stays and an HDPE framesheet combine with the padded waist-belt to transfer load to your hips
  • Anatomically shaped shoulder straps, waist-belt, and AeroForm mesh back panel utilize breathable materials for carrying comfort in hot weather
  • Panel-loading setup makes it easy to load and get to gear
  • Twenty-five-liter-capacity pack designed to hold your minimalist kit for fast out-and-back trips
  • A blend of high-denier body fabrics, sturdy reinforcements, and breathable contact points make the pack supremely comfortable, durable, and versatile
  • Internal and external pockets help you keep smaller gear organized; map pocket on hip-belt makes navigation easier
  • HydroPort tech makes the pack hydration-bladder-compatible so you can easily keep your body's reserves topped off during hot days (bladder not included)
  • Four compression straps let you adjust the pack's volume to accommodate different-sized loads

Is the Axios 25 water-resistant? Can you use this as it is without a cover when it pours down rain?

This pack is pretty sweet, but Arcteryx totally missed an opportunity to make the pack great. The side pockets to hold beverages may be the worst design I have ever seen on a backpack. There is no way to hold any bottles securely in the side pockets they are WAY too small--they have no depth. If you plan on using the bladder capability of the bag, then this may not bother you, but for me, using the bladder is not going to be something I will do regularly. Be prepared to have your bottles fall out of the side pockets often, even the tie straps are not overly helpful securing bottles in the pockets. One thing I really like about this bag is that it is available in a tall size model. I am 6'5" and the tall edition of this pack fits me great, maybe the best of any pack I have had. Worth a look, but be aware of the poor design of the side pockets and their ability to secure your bottles.

I agree, it is the only weak spot of this bag. The side pocket are disappointing if they were designed for bottle. Even with the strap, it doesn't give me a ease of mind when I'm out and about.

The main compartment has room to fit a macbook pro 13" in the case along with a change of clothes. The Nalgene on the side fits ok although the pockets are not very deep. I feel like I need to use the side strap in order to keep it secure.

Day Hiker or Minimalist Pack

I have a 70 and 35 Liter pack so wanted something to be able to take on a day hike, bike ride, or just when I want to try a minimalist multi-day trip. This past weekend I spent 2 nights on the AT with this pack and had no problems with storage or weight/comfortability issues. I would have preferred to get the large but they only had a regular at a time and it works just fine for me. I'm 210 lbs and 6'3".

The back compartment held my tarp, purifier, stove system, Nalgene, and 1.5L bladder.
The front compartment held my food and fire starting supplies.
The two smaller pockets held other small necessities.

Hope this helps!

I'm very interested in this pack, however I wonder how sturdy it really is. Can it carry two 1.5L bottles of water on a day trip or is the bottom to weak? How large is the main compartment only without the additional pockets?

Responded on

Despite the lightweight of the Axios 25, it carries weight really well. It's got a ribbed internal back panel that is light, but offers good support and protection from the contents. The main pocket has room for water bottles jacket, lunch, camera and a few other items

Responded on

Brandon is correct. You will have no problem carrying 2 1.5L bottles plus more in this pack.

A few durability issues, but not a terrible bag

This has been both my laptop and general travel bag for the past year or so and has done pretty well. My biggest complaints are the carry handle having broken after only having the bag for a short time, (it snapped apart where it attaches to the bag on one side) I was in the middle of moving to the other side of the world and didn't have time to send it back, so I just stiched it up with some spectra thread and it hasn't been a problem since, though I tend to avoid using it with a heavy pack now. The plastic sheet that makes it semi-rigid has cracked about 5 inches from the top, though it's hard to blame anything other than it being compressed in my locker in less-than-ideal positions.
The fit is spot on whether I use the hip straps or not and they tuck into the pack when not in use. The heaviest load it's had to put up with was probably around 25lbs and it wasn't uncomfortable, despite my lack of natural padding at 5'9", 140lbs. The mesh back does an admirable job of both padding and keeping your back from sweating too much.
In terms of a computer bag, there's no padding on the bottom, so dropping your bag is about the same as dropping your laptop, be gentle. The Hydration sleeve fits slimmer 15" notebooks, such as the Macbook Pro like a glove, but thicker than that and they'll have to sit outside the sleeve.
Compartment layout is pretty good, and the brightly colored fabric used in the lining makes it easier to see inside the pack. The one main compartment is fairly spacious and compresses well when empty. The smaller outer compartment is a bit awkward in shape for holding much other than clothing. The smaller outer pocket and the one inside the main compartment are lifesavers for keeping small items handy, and can hold quite a bit if stuffed tight. The side mesh pockets only manage to hold things that are also strapped in with one of the compression straps and the hip-belt mesh pockets are pretty much useless.
The ripstop fabric shows every bit of dust and dirt it touches (I have the black) though it cleans up well with a damp cloth. I believe I have the previous season version, as the ripstop pattern is not nearly as pronounced as in the pictures, so I can't speak on the current model and any changes that have been made.
All in all, the bag has held up fairly well to all the abuse I've put it through, but I was hoping for greater durability from Arc'teryx.

Light and fairly durable

Pros:
- Fairly light weight but still durable
- Mesh back and shoulder straps for good venting
- Three zippered compartments: small, medium, large (plus a small internal compartment)
- Compression straps and sternum strap
- Stoable waist belt
- "okay" water bottle holders ("C" grade)
- Bladder compartment

Cons:
- Zippers are "okay"
- Little waist pockets are almost worthless

Responded on

It should fit depending how full you have the bag packed. The pocket will come about half way up the Nalgene, then you can use the buckle strap above it to keep it securely locked in place.

Good to go

Great pack for a day our in the city or to cary extra gear while skiing. Very comfortable and lightweight with pockets that keep things organized. Hip belt folds away completely which completely minimizes the extra straps when not needed. Great pack for an adult or young teanager.

AWESOME PACK, but minor beef

I really love this pack - I originally bought Aerios 14, which is smaller version of this pack with almost same features. I loved the Aerios 14 but wanted to have the same design on bigger pack for carry on travel pack, so I pulled the triger on Axios. Wow, this is really nice. Sized just perfect, my 14' Toshiba fits well, side pockets have bungees built in, keeping most of items safe (not with Aerios, which has really poor side pocket). I also love that waist belt can tuck in. Orange lining is huge +++.
The only beef was the logo (as you can see my question below). It turned out the actual product has big ARC word under the birdy logo. Why such a big deal? Well, I don't like big logo screaming on my gear, and I expected the Axios to be same as Aerios, stealthy bird logo. No such luck. I guess I will dye this thing...

Great summer time pack.

I've had this bag for over a year and I love the Aerofoam backpanel that Arcteryx has put into this pack it keeps me cool in the summer and has a lot of little extras that most bags at this price point dont have. I only have one issue with this bag, the shoulder straps could be a little wider other then that great bag good price.
