Reviews - Arc'teryx Blade 30 Backpack
If you are looking for a bag for commuting to work or school or doubling as a weekend / overnight bag. The Blade 30 is a very well made tough and durable bag and will do the job very well. Easily packs a couple days of clothes and last but not least a nice laptop compartment.
Good materials and construction. Haven't use it yet but seems solid. Appears larger than I thought, not sure if it would count as just a personal item as opposed to a carry on. In any event, well crafted bag.
Quality Laptop Bag
I bought the Blade 30 to replace my flimsy Timbuktu laptop bag. The Blade's nylon material is much heavier and more substantial - and the bag thus keeps it's form. Also - the laptop holder is secure and armored - I have no worries about it being damaged. Inside the bag is spacious - enough room for an overnight business trip. But the bag is still perfect for daily use - It goes with me everywhere. Best thing about the bag is the side entry for the laptop and other compartments. The bag will sit on it's side alone, keeping it's form, making it very handy to move stuff in and out. I know it's expensive. I wanted the Blade 30, but hesitated because of the cost and instead "saved" $100 on the Timbuktu bag - only to learn you get what you pay for. This is a quality bag you'll appreciate daily. Don't be scared by the price. It's worth it.
