The Akra backpack from Arcido is designed to be a minimal travel bag with clean looks and plenty of organization and pockets.
It’s a lightweight bag with some interesting hidden 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.
