Have to agree that it is more of a messenger bag with straps than a day pack

It's a messenger bag wtih shoulder straps, this isn't a backpack!

This is nothing more than an over priced, laptop sized messenger bag with two shoulder straps. There is just enough space for my 15 inch laptop, external hard drive, mouse, and associated cords. The middle storage pocket isn't wide enough for a bottle of water, however if you routinely carry file folder's, magazines and newspapers, or say two laptops, then you are good to go. Don't be fooled by the 915cu in spec. It may be 915 cu in according to a CAD design program, but it's clearly not 915 cu in of intelligently designed, usable space. NOT RECOMMENDED for people looking to carry lunch and a laptop to work. NOT RECOMMENDED for people interested in a single pack for commuting to work. RECOMMENDED if you only want to use this a a carry on for your trip cross country and all your bringing is your computer, chewing gum, and magazines to read on the flight.

Thanks for this review brother, the first one is a little misleading i think but you set the record straight! Arc'teryx does NOT seem to put as much effort into the construction of these 'casual urban' bags as their reputed mountaineering products from what i've read.

It just so happens that, within the past 3 years, I have taken a 30 day long trip to Europe (solo, no plans of any sort made beforehand, and first time I ever went to Europe), a 28 day long trip to Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam, two other more recent trips to Europe lasting 12 days and 21 days each, and about 40-50 other shorter trips (mostly domestic US) with this exact backpack as my only piece of luggage that I took with me, period. And yes, I had a laptop in it - I run a web-based company that I have to keep up with while traveling. And no, I didn't make a mistake about the size, it's the Blade 15 I've been using all this time. I just kinda found it interesting that, somehow, travel to SE Asia for 28 days takes less space than one day at work.

Oh, and by the way, let me insert a short plug for the Macbook Air. That laptop and this bag were made for each other (and I mean the 13" version - the 11" screen feels cramped, get the 13" as an accessory to this pack. Or maybe it's the other way around...)

By the way, my Blade 15 backpack has at least 300 days of travel usage on it now, and it's not looking altogether all that much different than the day I bought it.

Is it waterproof?

it will fit your 17"Mac, but it's tight. The computer sleeve has width and thickness adjustments.

Three questions...

1. Will this fit a 15"...

Three questions...

1. Will this fit a 15" MacBook Pro?

2. Is there extra room for the MacBook Pro to be in a protective sleeve?

3. is the interior a non-scratch material? I am wondering if I needed a protective sleeve for the laptop?

Responded on

The Arc'teryx Blade 15 will fit a 15" lappy nicely, the sleeve is adjustable so you can make it fit exactly, and not have the computer bounce around. I've used mine without a protective sleeve, and the combo of a snug sleeve, smooth nylon and foam padded back and bottom, have kept my rig looking good.
