Osprey Arcane Day Pack
You don’t need a fancy bag to carry your everyday road warrior essentials. What you need is a bag that has a simple feature set yet possesses quality materials and a reliable build that will reverberate through the ages. These are exactly what the Arcane Large Top Zip Pack has in store.
If you didn’t know better you’d think that the Arcane is just another large tote bag, except that you won’t see any handles protruding upwards. What you’ll get, however, is a pair of shoulder straps that are as comfy on your back as they are on your shoulders. The right shoulder strap comes with a sleeve that is constructed of stretchable power mesh while the left features a nifty contraption for holding your transport cards, IDs, and other small items of value. It’s the kind of arrangement that makes you feel more secure while making your way across city streets and alleyways.
Securing the Arcane is also made easy. An aluminum security hook can be easily released from the left shoulder strap and secured around the leg of your chair or even table. It’s like your Kensington security slot, albeit designed for the Arcane bag. At any rate, you’ll feel more secure about having your bag lying next to you while enjoying the sights of a new place and making new acquaintances.
The main compartment of this day pack can be easily accessed through a full-width zipper closure at the top. A laptop sleeve capable of holding a 15-incher is inside the compartment alongside a monomesh zip pocket and a separate sleeve for documents. It has a very simple organization yet it works. You can stash in virtually anything inside this 18-liter capacity everyday carry.
Forming the fabric of the Arcane is a blend of cotton and polyester canvas and finished with a waxy material to give it sheen and water repellency. At the bottom is 100-denier nylon while forming the back panel is the NeoSpacer ridged foam. You’ll never complain your back hurts.
Who would’ve thought that a simple bag such as the Arcane can still be very functional by today’s standards?
