Joel wrote a review of Arc'teryx Blade 24 Backpack - 1465cu in - DO NOT USE on October 18, 2009
I didn't like the way the pack fit. It was fairly stiff and felt burdensome with a heavy load. In addition, it's difficult to put a lot of supplies in this pack and I couldn't get used to the side opening concept. Getting gear in and out of the pack was very cumbersome. I also wasn't diggin' the square shape. Don't get me wrong, I love Arcteryx, but this just wasn't for me. I was looking for something a little more versatile. I give 3 stars because of its superb construction quality.
