The Blade 28 is constructed using 2 incredibly durable fabrics that are woven from 210 denier and 630 Denier high tenacity nylon yarns, thus ensuring that this pack can withstand the rigours beatings given by every day and travel use.

The shoulder straps are made from a plush, dual density foam and the thermomoulded back system adds extra comfort and protection from the internal contents of the pack. A cool feature is that the straps can be secured to the pack by tucking them into an integral loop situated in the middle of the back system. This stops the straps from flapping about when using the Blade 28’s side carry handle during check in or when standing around in a packed tube station. There is even a security pocket in the back system for things you want to keep extra safe such as passports, travel documents or your wallet.

The well thought out design of this pack will have you awestruck. The clamshell opening reveals an OCD Mecca of storage compartments, organiser pockets, a 3D padded laptop/table sleeve and security pockets. Clothes can be stored behind zipper paneled compartments, many pockets are access able from the outside. There is even a pocket to keep your water bottle close at hand for those longer trips.

Its clean uncomplicated outer makes it perfect for city lifestyle and commuters alike. 

  • In my opinion, owning this bag will make your life so much better!

    For someone who travels the london underground and aveage trip across london is 2 hours, this sleek design is one of few which actually ticks the boxes in terms of maximum "stashability" relative for how low profile it is. as an Arcteryx user myself of their LEAF products this Civi bag still holds true to their quality. 10/10 would buy again

    I bought the Blade 28 in October 2016 after extensive research looking for an EDC backpack that could double as onboard luggage and/or sustain me for short haul business/holiday trips. It is super versatile and robust even after years of daily rigorous use. I came off my bike wearing it and everything inside was protected including my laptop and tablet - the bike is a write off! I hope Arcteryx design an updated model as Id be curious to see what improvements they can make...if any!

    Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

    Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!
