a pack that lasts

I've put it through the wringer

I bought all sizes of this pack when they were offered back in 2012 and still use them today. I have taken them overseas to Asia on multiple occasion and love the 40L size for it's streamline design and easy packing/access/durability. I find simple pleasure looking at everyone struggle getting their bags off the plane when this thing is a breeze to grab. I am planning on using this for two weeks in thailand in a few weeks and have full confidence that it will perform well. Highly recommend!

Great Bag for Short Trips

I've used it several times

I've always loved the Arc'teryx brand, and my appreciation for their work has only grown since my purchase of the 40L Covert carry-on bag. Durable exterior fabric, solid and well-thought-out construction and incredibly usable. Very happy with it and confident recommending it.

Great, No-Frills bag

I've used it several times

I'm not a fan of carry on bags with ton's of "features" I prefer a bag that holds my gear and doesn't have tons of straps hanging off to catch on things. This is a great bag that doesn't get distracted adding features that no one wants.

Rectangle with Straps

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I’m foregoing checking in luggage for my upcoming international trip. I’m packing two weeks worth of clothes in an Outdoor Research AirPurge Dry Compression Sack and putting it in here to optimize my space utilization. Plenty big, but small enough to carry on any domestic or international flight. Arc’teryx also creates the Index series which fit inside of this bag, including packing cubes, toiletries bags, etc. Shoulder straps double as duffel handles and can be a bit uncomfortable if the bag is too heavy.

sleek and minimalist

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've tried Patagonia MLC, Tom Bihn, even the minaal bag. This one seems to be the most minimalist of all of the bags. It actually has hard foam to keep the shape. Once you open it up, you get a large open cabin space, so you can fit your clothes, shoes, etc. I'd use packing cubes though to keep everything organized. I"m used to using a roll-a-board 22" but this is great for something you can just strap to your back. I wish the shoulder straps were a bit more padded, but if your not lugging around super heavy items, you should be ok. The inside zip strap in the compartment is mostly useless. Maybe you can fit a tooth brush case in here + keys or something like that. maybe Money. The outside pocket is deep and easily accessible. No problem there. Inside pocket is also useful too for laptop or documents. Usually I'd carry my laptop in my backpack, and use this purely for my clothes/shoes. I initially thought the straps were on backwards, but they aren't the back with no logo is supposed to be on the outside. I'd say, backpack mode is good for over longer distances, otherwise, just use it as single shoulder bag. Handles are useful to put up into stow-away big and take out. I wish this bag had more separators? I also wish the compression straps inside were attached to the bottom instead of the top. Zippers seem to be sturdy. I haven't experienced any issue with them catching on the sides. This bag is 5L smaller than Patagonia MLC. Tom Bihn bag is nice, but also double the price here. MLC bag is little cheaper here. Only time will tell how long this bag will last, but should do quite nicely for next 3 years. If you can get a deal on this, it could work for you especially if you need a sleek bag and you are always in carry on mode. I have the blue on which gives it a better contrast compared to all black one.

Hello All, Just wanted to let you know the dimensions of this bag so that you can be sure it is the right size for you. Height: 28cm, Length: 57cm, Width: 38cm

For the folks in the States that would be: 11 1/32" x 22 7/16" x 14 61/64" Most Major Airlines are 9" x 22" x 14" 2nd most common - 10" x 24" x 16" I own this bag & have always used it as a carry on, never an issue. It's very light and flexible. As long as it's not packed to the MAX it will fit in overheads or under your seat. Even on smaller planes into more remote areas. This has been my experience. **I had to take 2 books out once for an easier time fitting under my seat but they were coming out anyway;-)


Does it have a laptop sleeve?? If so, what’s the largest laptop the backpack can take??

Hey Gustavo! This bag does not have a laptop sleeve.
