The Akra backpack from Arcido is designed to be a minimal travel bag with plenty of organization and pockets. It does the trick! It’s a lightweight bag with some interesting hidden pockets and quick access pockets.
It’s design is nice and clean. It doesn’t shout too loud any style in particular besides a kind of general sleek techiness.
It’s small enough to maybe be used as a daily carry once you get to your destination, but it’s a little too floppy when it’s empty to be perfect for that. However, they do have the much smaller Arcido Vaga that was designed to fit inside the bag and share the laptop holder (saving a little space).
Ultimately, this bag is a lovely bag to travel with! It has surprising capacity for a bag that looks and feels this compact. Excellent bag!
My personal take: I like the slick aesthetic of this bag and I like all the external pockets they’ve got. It’s surprisingly roomy too. I personally tend to go for more of the GoRuck, Guide Pack, or Wandrd Prvke style look when I travel with one bag.
Other Bags to Check Out:
The Aer Duffel Pack is not the tool for every job, but for particular uses it just might be perfect for you.
The Homebase series from Tortuga features this incredibly lightweight sailcloth material that's water resistant and super strong. (It feels light and scary! But it's damn strong stuff.) This makes for an incredibly light and resilient travel bag.
The Subterra backpack from Thule is designed to be a minimal travel bag with room for both your tech needs, daily needs and weekend travel needs.
The Wandrd Prvke (pronounced "provoke" or "perrrrvrkeeee") is one of our favorite bags of all time for both daily carry and minimal travel. Built rugged, good looking, water resistant with tons of pockets. It comes in 2 sizes — we like the 20L for daily carry and minimal travel and the 30L for bigger bodies and longer trips.
