The Arcido Faroe backpack – a review

Once upon a time I reviewed the Arcido Novaya backpack, and I loved it.  I loved the whole idea of it i.e. a backpack for weekend breaks.  Now step up it’s successor, the Arcido Faroe, a shiny new backpack which, takes all the best bits of the Novaya, but streamlines them.

The result as you’ll see in the video below, is a super lightweight, slimline, versatile backpack.  Essentially it’s even MORE perfect for weekend travels and short breaks where you need to take your laptop AND a small wardrobes worth of clothes.

Here, take a look.


Arcido Faroe Features


Love a large storage area, with a suitable large opening flap.  None of that top loading only business here, the Arcido Faroe provides loads of storage and plenty of access to everything you’ve managed to pack.


Love this …. but, the Novaya version was detachable, and I still use the detachable padding from the Novaya everyday.  However I get it though, this more slimline laptop section reduces the depth of the Faroe no end, and allows so much more room for clothes, shoes etc.

The Arcido Faroe still gives you laptop storage (obviously) so it’s the best of both worlds.


Made from a rugged, heather grey Blendex Kodra.

Kodra for those of you who don’t know (as I didn’t 5 mins ago) is an “air treated” Nylon fabric.  It’s often used in backpacks because of it’s being abrasion resistance and the fact it is relatively lightweight when compared to canvas materials


Super accessible whilst making your way through airport security, there is a pocket designed perfectly to house your passport and other important travel docs.

Likewise there is a shrapnel (loose change) and keys pocket.
