Great streamlined pack for CCW
I have the discontinued Blade 24, and this is an excellent pack for descreet concealed carry. The front pocket has plenty of small loops for magazines, tools, and smaller items, and it's design makes it roomier than it appears. The interesting feature about this bag is the side zippers. It actually allows for the bag to be opened while still secured on your right shoulder. I'm not writing this to spurn a discussion about CCW in a bag vs. on person, but if you have ever found yourself in an environment where you couldn't carry on your hip but wanted to have your carry piece readily available, this is a great option. It is also much more streamined for everyday use as apposed to a Maxpedition.

The Arc'teryx Blade 15 will fit a 15" lappy nicely, dimensions are:18.5"/47cm x 12"/30.5cm x 6"/15cm (LxWxD).The sleeve is adjustable so you can make it fit exactly,and not have the computer bounce around.

I bought this backpack for daily use. It looks great and it is very tough. It is perfect for my Thinkpad laptop.

Tried and True
Longtime Arcteryx fan, after years of using the original Blade, it was time to upgrade my laptop bag since I purchased a new widescreen notebook. I looked no further than the new Blade line, still the sleekest, most funtional and sharp bag on the market. Others may try, but Arcteryx is the real deal.

Pretty much perfect!
The best smaller lappy bag there is! Excellent design with no frills and high quality. Great for airports as the lappy is quick access and it can be worn as a backpack. Every other bag seems cheesy and cheap in comparison
