Welcome to Grouphunt    Learn how it works!

Carry everything with you in a single backpack that fits in the overhead locker. Our starting point for all Arcido bags is the idea of streamlined, efficient travel. We want to travel hands-free, and we think wheelie bags are limiting. 

We’ve taken the feedback from the thousands of customers who have used our Faroe and Arcido bags to create two new products : Akra and Vaga. Akra is a lightweight travel backpack designed to give you easy access to all the stuff you need when you travel. Vaga is the daypack that accompanies it, which fits neatly inside. Our laptop protection system is second to none - suspend your laptop or macbook in a harness that hugs your device, and can be switched between the two bags. So whether you’re in travel or day mode, your laptop is protected.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The main travel pack, Akra, is carry-on size and fits all the gear you'll need for a two week trip or longer. Our lightweight baby brother day pack, Vaga, is lightweight and can be slipped into the main pack and ready to use when you've arrived in town and want to explore. The adjustable laptop harness can easily transfer between bags.

 

 

 

 

AKRA gives you easy access to the things you need when you travel. Take out your laptop or macbook at airport security by pulling the tab, keep your passport hidden and secure. We’ve made it easy to get to things you need whilst protecting and hiding your important stuff.

 

 

 

 

Packing your Akra bag is easy and efficient. The whole bag can be opened flat for easy packing. We designed packing cubes that fit inside the bag perfectly, helping you to organise and compress your clothes. the front pocket can be accessed from both inside and outside the bag. This means that you don't have to display the bag's contents when removing the wash bag at security.

 

 

 

 AKRA features padded and ventilated backplate designed to make carrying a heavy bag on your back comfortable. In addition, we’re shipping the pack with sternum and waist straps to help spread the load. It makes carrying even a fully-laden bag a comfortable experience.

 

 

 

 Designed for up to 15.4" laptops, the harness inside AKRA is the latest iteration of an idea we’ve been developing for over a year. Store your device securely, no matter what size it is - in a suspended harness that can be removed if you don’t need it. Because it’s suspended, your laptop’s protected even if you drop your bag.

Use the pull-tab to lift the laptop out of the bag whenever you need it. The harness also fits inside the daypack so your device is protected in day-mode, too!  

 

 

Weighing just 600g, our VAGA day pack is small and light, packing down to practically nothing. It easily fits inside the main compartment of Akra, making it ideal for exploring your destination and day-to-day use. The laptop harness clips inside either bag, giving you the same laptop protection whether you’re in travel or day mode.

 

 

We use lightweight, highly durable Kodra as the main body material for our bags. As a highly water-resistant material, your stuff won't get wet even in rain showers. Using this material we have manged to designed a bag that weighs just 1.3kg (2.8lbs) including straps (which can be removed, to make the bag weigh just 1.1kg).  

It's really important to get the zips right on a bag, because they're usually the first thing to fail. That's why we've used YKK on both bags, and all accessories including packing cubes. YKK are the best you can buy, and are designed to cope with heavy use.  

Our straps feature high quality magnetic clasps that make it easy to lock-in when you need added support, and disconnect easily.

We are Will & Felix - two guys who are passionate about travel who spend a lot of time on the road. We set up Arcido two years ago with the mission of making the very best carry-on backpacks on the market.   

Our first Kickstarter in 2016  - "The Arcido Bag" - received an incredibly positive reception. People appreciated our style of travel - wearing one backpack to carry everything. They also loved the high quality materials we used, and how organised it made them feel. 

Our follow-up bag was called Faroe. Having sold thousands of Faroe bags, we've gathered a lot of valuable feedback in the process. Talking to our customers means we really understand how they use the product and what they want more of. 

This project is the result of those conversations, and we’ve integrated a lot of the features our customers asked for. As two guys who travel a lot, we've had the opportunity to road-test each iteration of Akra. The result is something usable, lightweight and great-looking.
