Quality Bag
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.

Versatile travel bag
Excellent travel pack. I hate, and absolutely refuse to check luggage. My goal with this pack was to get a bag I can travel with internationally for 2 weeks. I think this pack comes as close as I'm reasonably going to get. Construction quality is fantastic, the load balancing in this is better than any bag I've used. This is designed more for casual travel, and doesn't have the waist and chest straps of a true hiking pack, however, you also don't have a bunch of extra straps dangling around either, when 99% of the time, you don't need them. I recently took a 4 day trip and packed 2 pairs of pants, one sweater, four shirts, 4 pairs of socks, 4 pairs of boxers, and a pair of trail running shoes, an iPad, a DSLR, and some accessories. Was it pushed to the max? Yep. However, if I didn't pack the shoes, I could have easily have gotten 2 more shirts and another pair of pants. The separate compartment made it pretty nice to be able to place my stuff without wadding it up into a ball, which is what usually happens when I take a top loading pack. You don't look like you're storming the mountains with this pack. It's square-ish and strap free. It's as "professional" as your going to look with a backpack.

Does what it was made to do
Love the pack,the only thing i would change is the color. Wish it had some color options as there is to many black packs in airports already.

Great Bag for Airline Travel
I have been on the hunt for the perfect bag for airline travel for a long time. I have gone through rolling bags, carry-ons of all brands. This bag meets two requirements, it easily fit on to any crowded plane, and can carry essentials if need be for an overnight trip. I use it for an carry-on and as a single bag for O/N trips. Plenty of room, great design, good carry, holds a great deal of stuff and really fits into airline crowded scene all the time.
