Winter climbs are a challenge but sometimes they pale when compared to the daily grind, especially when it involves travel. The Arc'teryx Blade 21 Backpack makes the rat race a bit more tolerable, however, offering an organized place to carry all your tools of the trade. A padded laptop compartment offers protection when negotiating a maze of humanity, while the thermoformed back panel and dual density shoulder straps team up for comfort even when the pack is fully loaded. Grab handles on the top and side make it easy to set Blade 21 in overhead cargo bins or to carry it briefcase style.
