It could be used in many ways. I could use it as my laptop pack . And it could contain many items when I am go to trip. Moreover, it 's so durable and is very suitable for business day. although it's heavier than I thought. Like other Arc'teryx items, it has a high quality. I am satisfied with it and its performance.
Good quality Nice Design

This bag has been working really well for me at school. It's better than the old style blade21. Also, a little big. The biggest improvement is the computer can be fixed. Blade 24 dimensions: 19"/48cm x 12.5"/31.5cm x 7/17.5cm
Awesome Quality & Very Functional Daily/Travel Bag
May 05, 2010
The Blade 24 from Arc'teryx has lived up to my expectations for an everyday type bag and I see myself using it daily for the foreseeable future and using it as a carry-on type when traveling. This bag offers sturdy construction, durable material, nice comfy shoulder straps, and the perfect amount of pockets. The rear pocket is designed for laptop storage, with a divider that tethers a securing strap to keep the computer in place. There's room for a sizable book or notebooks there and in the front pocket (which doesn't contain a divider). I like the spacious face pocket, which has plenty of pockets/slots for pens, small electronics, etc., but I would've appreciate a couple similar slots in the facing pocket near the top. On the upside, that pocket is fairly capacious. The felt-lined MP3 player pocket on top and the hide-away passport/wallet pocket (against the wearer's back) are also nice touches. Overall, I really like using this bag every day and can say that Arc'teryx has met my expectations.
Sleek pack for in-bounds skiing
December 05, 2010
I purchased this pack to stash some small electronics, extra layers, tools, snacks and beverages while skiing in- bounds and some side country. Due to the low profile of this pack, I was able to sit pretty comfortably on any of the chairlifts. The pack is so light and ergonomically designed that I barely notice I'm wearing it while skiing. As with all Arcteryx products, it's smartly designed, well crafted and expensive. The red colored lining provides a nice contrast when you're trying to fish out small items buried in the pack. A 13" MacBook fits easily in the laptop compartment and the pack can be handled like a briefcase for easy access to your laptop. Capacity is more coach than first class, so you really need to edit your stash smartly. Speaking of travel, this pack works great as a small carryon due to the ease of access to your stuff.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, doubles as a briefcase

I use this for work in the city (Boston) and it works great. Nice support on the back that balances nicely. Very light and comfortable. Love the laptop section. It's easy to access and just the right size. The side access works really well and makes things easily organized. Style works equally well in the board room or on the road. Couldn't ask for anything more.
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.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Lasts forever

My husband loves this pack. He bought it for Cat skiing in BC this winter but it is multi functional. It is extremely well designed, with lots of pockets and an amazing amount of storage space for its sleek design. Water bottles, beach towels, sunscreen, cell phones, and stereo all fit with room to spare. From Mountains to Beach, great pack! I want one.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: expensive
Above Average, Simple, Lightweight Backpack
February 02, 2010
This is a good quality, simple, lightweight backpack that functions well if you carry around a small amount of stuff (cables, connectors, bose headphones, battery pack , ext. mouse...). The laptop sleeve is adjustable, which is nice because my Dell 17" fits snugly in the pocket although it does catch a little when placing it in or taking it out of the sleeve. Nothing wrong with this bad, I just wish I would have gone with the Blade 30 with the larger capacity so I could carry a 3 ring binder and other papers for work. Also, note that the backpack is fairly rigid due to a hard plastic insert that provides the proper contour for the back. It is in a zippered pocket so you could remove it if you so desired.
Superbly functional for heavy travel.

I work overseas and have quite a few tactical packs, but wanted something that would serve me both while in Afghanistan and during trips in and out of the country on leave and work travel. I chose the Arc'teryx Blade 24 for its multiple compartments (both large and small), its conventional look and and its multiple carry handles so I can grab it while it is standing horizontally or vertically (when running through airports or carrying multiple bags, this is a great feature for me). The laptop slot fits a 15" laptop max. My laptop is a little larger, but it fits fine in the other side of the laptop partition. You can always go for the Blade 30 if you have a larger laptop. It has a fitted design that took a bit for me to get used to as all my other day packs can be overstuffed when necessary. The benefit of the fitted design is it fits much easier in aircraft overheads and under seats. The downside is I can't jam my DSLR and lens or my hard Oakley sunglass case in it. The zippers are high quality and are nested so prying fingers would have a hard time getting easy access into the compartments. This is my go-to global travel pack now and I feel a little less conspicuous without a carry on pack that has webbing sewn on every inch of the outside;)Pros: Great design, Build quality

I had purchased the blade 24 backpack for my daughter, and she loved this backpack. When I needed a new one for myself I decided to purchase the Blade 24 for myself. It is very convenient to use, as you can access the compartments like a messenger bag. There is a top compartment where you can place your wallet or power brick for your laptop. A 15 inch laptop fits perfectly in the back compartment, and is well protected. The backpack is durable, good looking, and convenient to carry. I would not hesitate to recommend this backpack.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
not much storage
February 12, 2012
because there is a separate compartment for a laptop, the main compartment is pretty small. I returned it as I needed a bit more space for a work/commuter back pack. I talked to Arcteryx and they pointed me to toward the Blade 30.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever
February 16, 2012
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.Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Great value
Great blend of cool and sophistication
January 25, 2010
This is a great pack that is comfortable but still stylish enough to hang in the boardroom. The side zip means that you can remove a laptop in the security line while still carrying the pack over your right shoulder.
April 29, 2012
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!
