πŸ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • The Arc'teryx opens flat which allows you ample access to all of your travel items.
  • Great build quality and made from high-quality materials.
  • Features lots of organization.
  • Have a secured pocket located at the back frame sheet wherein you can store your keys, wallet, or passport.

πŸ€” Things to Consider

  • Not water-resistant so make sure you have a rain fly ready when it starts to drizzle.
  • The side-oriented organization can be awkward to use when in backpack mode.
  • The laptop sleeve location might not be the best idea.

πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "A lot of storage space, although it does not look bulky, many useful compartments, especially on the back for money and a small one on the side for keys (I use it this way). If it lies on the side, it can be very easily accessed, if you are in a car or train or up on a slope. The design is beautiful and fits with leisure and with business. Very light and a pleasure to wear, even if it is filled and therefore heavy inside."
  • "Quite impressed. I thought it was a bit too big compared with blade 24, but after giving it a chance I’d actually say that I prefer it. More space and pockets to store. Almost lighter."
  • "This is the best backpack I’ve ever owned and massively improved my commute to work every day. It’s incredibly spacious without being bulky. Really well organized and great quality. Worth the investment!!"

Arcteryx Blade 28 Backpack Review

"The gist is this. It is a fairly sleek, comfortable, well-designed bag. However, in use, I just don't find it that easy to use..."

Arc'teryx Blade 28 Backpack Review

"The Arc’teryx Blade 28 is a solid one bag travel pack for the ultra-minimalist or a weekend pack for everyone else. It’s a good bag with excellent build quality, solid materials and ample packing space..."


"This thoughtfully designed travel backpack features a clamshell main compartment, with a zippered section for keeping your clothes separate from the rest of the contents. The pack holds a 15-inch laptop, a tablet, documents and smaller daily and travel essentials, while keeping important items such as a passport or wallet within easy reach in quick-access pockets."
