hi, Im interested in this Arrakis 40 or the 50
Does anyone have the L x W x D of these 2 bags (Arrakis 40 and 50) I would like to be able to use it as an airline carry on bag /travel bag..
(I like something high performance,durable..comfy backpack/travel bag)
Anybody use these two as their carry on bag..
are there that much difference between these two (SIZE WISE)?
Are the hip belts removable?
Thanks much

Here's the dimensions for the Arc'teryx Arrakis packs:
Arrakis: 40 23.5’ x 12” x 11”
50 25” x 12.5” x 12.5”
These are certainly durable, comfortable and high performance. The only consideration for using these as a travel bag is access-they aren't panel loaders. Both have pivoting hipbelts that are super easy to remove (shoulder harnesses, too). I'd guess the 50 is a bit big as a carry on. I find the Arc'teryx volume measurements tend to be conservative compared to other brands.
