Sleek, durable and able to protect your 15-inch laptop, the Arc'teryx Switchblade Daypack lets you switch up your carry style with the top and side grab handles and the adjustable padded shoulder strap.

Made from rugged 420-denier PU-coated fabric, this Arc'teryx shoulder bag can take the rough treatment your travels dish out – whether you're scrambling around rock hewn churches in Ethiopia, or you're dragging it on and off the Metro on your daily commute. With padding all around, your laptop or iPad will be protected in the internal sleeve, and you still have 11 liters of space to keep other essential gear in. This messenger bag has multiple pockets and pouches, keeping your phone, travel documents, passport and wallet at the ready.

Sling it over one shoulder, carry it by your side or strap it on as a messenger bag, the Arc'teryx Switchblade Backpack is built to the high performance and style standards that are unmistakably Acr'teryx.

Great multi-use pack! It could be used for school, or daily urban lift. At first, it looks so cool and has a high quality. Secondly, it 's so durable, I could put many heavy books into it. At the same time, it fits my back very well, I feel very comfy. I am satisfied with it.

Comfort laptop pack
February 28, 2011

I use this bag in college and it's the best bag I've ever used. I carry a netbook, two text books, an umbrella, a pocket dictionary, and about 5 lbs of change daily and in spite of this my lumbar pain has entirely disappeared (curse messenger bags!). Thoroughly recommended to students.
