Arc’teryx Brize 32 Backpack – Unboxing and Initial Review

Arc’teryx Brize 32 Backpack

I just received my new Arc’teryx Brize 32 BackpackĀ and I’m already loving it.

I had to order it from via amazon. For some reason, Arc’teryx was out of the black color. The backpack cost me $189 US.

Check out the video above for the unboxing and initial review.

I’ll add to this post once I get a feel for the pack and put a few miles on it. Check back in a couple of weeks for the update.

Pack Care

The simplest way to clean your Arc’teryx pack is with water. First brush off any loose particles of dirt and empty any debris from the inside of the pack. You can gently scrub the pack with a soft brush. Most cleaning is possible in this manner as our pack fabrics are tightly woven, premium dirt-resistant textiles. Give the bag a good spray of water and hang it to dry in the shade; heat sources break down the fabric and leave them brittle.

Aeroform Monofilament Mesh

A 900-denier monofilament mesh that is thermoformable and can be heat-set into three dimensional peak-and-void shapes for back panels. Air permeable, non-absorbent, durable, flexible, and compression resistant.


A plain weave, high density 420 denier nylon 6,6 cloth that has a simple, abrasion resistant outer surface and good edge stability. Coated with polyurethane to increase weatherproofness and deflect dirt and contaminants.
