While it's beautiful (usual for Arc'teryx), I'm having a hard time with the 'fits a 15" laptop' claim as it implies it's designed to carry said laptop.
Here's where you may…

About Arcteryx Backpacks:
Here���s a very important question to consider: One-strap or Two-strap? You don���t have to decide right away, but it���s something you should be thinking about. Your strap habits say a lot about you, speaking volumes of your character to the folks you encounter on a daily basis. And we get it, you might need to get out there and feel it out a bit first. So here���s what you do: Get yourself an Arcteryx backpack and explore your destiny.
Sound over the top to you? Well maybe you don���t appreciate the gravity of the situation here. Say you���re a one-strapper, sauntering through life with an air of casual confidence about yourself. Fill that Arcteryx pack to the brim, slap on that strap and leave the other one to its own devices. You don���t need it. Arcteryx backpacks are built strong, so your single strap is sure to support the weight of your advanced carry receptacle, no matter what you throw in that bad boy. Most of them are even equipped with hipbelts, so feel free to no-strap it (Note: please don���t no-strap it).
Two-strapper, you say? Nice, you���re riding the wave of the future. That wave consists of the silent strength in knowing your precious cargo is free from disruption. That���s a good start. Throw that in with ultra-durable Arcteryx build materials and you���re looking even better. You���ll have more pockets than you know what to do with! Oh, and many of these packs have hydration bladders so you can get your anti-thirst on while you double-strap your life away.
Grab your Arcteryx and get to strappin���. How many you use is entirely up to you.
