Arcteryx Blade 28 Review

The Blade 28 from Arcteryx is a slimline, functional bag designed for both travel and daily carry.

  • Interesting look — like it or not, it’s very unique and may be just what you’re looking for.
  • Padded tech pocket — the front of the bag is a contoured, padded tech pocket.
  • Capacity for an easy weekend away — or a tight week or two!

Ok, these bags from Nomatic are chock full of pockets. There are 2 different bags: the Travel Pack expands up to about 30L, perfect for short trips and minimal travel. The Backpack is 20-24L daily carry. Both are very sleek and, like I said, so many pocketzzz!
