I have used it everyday , still looks new. Perfectly designed for business use, matches formal dresses and business occasions. Superb for one or two days trip with few pieces of clothes, washbag, laptop and files. The top pocket with micro-fiber fabrics and concealed back pocket are really thoughtful. Need nothing more for a day pack!
great work pack
this bag is very nice. the 24 isn't overly large, but if you pack light it works well. if you're planning on something that will swallow a 15-17" laptop, clothes, books, shoes, etc., maybe look @ the 30. the fit and finish is classic Arc'. Very well made, and feels great on. The bag is perfect for commuters, or folks looking for something other than an over-the-shoulder briefcase style bag, or messenger bag. It is very stiff, not at all soft and collapsable (like a patagonia MLC is) when carrying like a briefcase, the shoulder straps are a little annoying, there isn't any way to secure them or tuck them away... that would be my only complaint.
Great as an alternative to a business briefcase or daytrip carry-on, the Arc'teryx Blade 24 Backpack offers 24 liters of carrying space and has an adjustable internal laptop sleeve/protector with enough room to accommodate a latop computer with a 15-inch screen.
