Designed for foreign travel, urban commutes and day hikes on trails close to home, the Arc'teryx Spear 20 Daypack is simple, versatile and compact – allowing for easy maneuverability on your bike and on crowded subway cars.

Made from 420D fabric, this backpack has the usual bombproof durability you've come to expect from Arc'teryx. Its convenient roll-top opening is nice and wide for easy access to your stuff and an internal hydration sleeve has a bladder clip to keep your reservoir in place and doubles as a protective pocket for a small laptop or travel documents. A zippered top pocket and a zippered side pocket keep small items handy and daisy chain webbing allows for additional lashing of a bike light, rain jacket or helmet on the outside.

Built with a frame sheet, removable aluminum stays and a webbing hip belt for load transfer and stabilization, this Arc'teryx pack makes it easy to shoulder a full day's worth of gear while keeping your back cool, dry and happy thanks to Sapcermesh covered padding.

it's incredibly easy to get access into the main body of the pack. Plus it's got a side access zipper that allows you to get inside without needing to open the top; really convenient. The inside of the pack is lined with a bright orange color, which helps for being able to see what's inside the pack when you're trying to find something. Overall it is great.

Great plane pack
June 25, 2011

I've been doing a ton of flying for my job lately and I needed a pack that could fit my laptop, iPad, a book(or 2) and some assorted pens/notebooks/flashlight/batteries/toiletries while fitting under the seat ahead of me. It does this very well, though I'm wondering if I should've gone a size up because I have maxed it out already. Wearing the pack is comfortable, though it's not my go to range/city pack (a little too small and lacks internal org). The lack of internal organizers (other than a pouch for a hydration bladder that also fits a 15" Macbook Pro), is why I could never rock this as a day bag for work. Like all packs made by the dirty bird I have purchased, form and comfort is there as well as the famous Arc bomb proof construction.

The Spear 20 Daypack is good in quality. Durability for carry daily things. Nice design, the botton's back of the pack is leave the waist for more air circulartion. But not easy for packing inside. the harness is comfortable for normal usage. Upon carry on the body, the pack is slightly upper than normal daypack.
