Arcido Novaya – the carry-on backpack you need for every city trip

I’ll be honest. I’m not the best traveller when it comes to packing. Either I want to take my whole wardrobe and I end up with several pieces of luggage or I take way less things in one small backpack and struggle with lack of important items during my trips… 

I guess what I needed was a little push and I got it exactly on time. A few weeks ago I received my very first smart backpack – Novaya from Arcido.

Exploring parts of Slovenia and Zagreb with the backpack, I can say that it was a lot more comfortable than carrying on luggage on wheels. Besides the comfortable back stripes that make it a backpack, Novaya also has a shoulder stripe and top and side handles. That makes it ideal to carry if your back is tired. So when it comes to comfort, I can say that Novaya has it all. It’s great for city trips and weekend getaways!


Let’s talk about the design of the Novaya bag. What I like about the backpack is that when you don’t wear it, it actually is a suitcase. All the main departments open up like one. That makes it very easy to arrange your luggage inside.

The backpack also has a separate resizable laptop department which makes it even more convenient for people who need their laptop on vacation. Also, the suitcase-like form allows you to just open the backpack and take whatever you need instead of trying to reach the bottom.

What I found out is that the backpack is kind of too big for a girl and it suits better on men. Maybe it’s just me, but because of its bigger-than-a-backpack size it doesn’t fit well on a smaller body size. 


To sum it up, for me, Novaya backpack has two main advantages:

  • Perfect size for city trips – you can fit all the things you need and still have the backpack-like luggage
  • Great design – it’s a good looking backpack with great adaptability and accessibility

This backpack will be our choice of travels from now on because of its convenience for city breaks or weekend getaways – it’s compact but there is still enough space for everything. On top of that, the grey colour suits perfectly to every outfit we chose. 


Arcido Novaya bag only costs £65 which, in my opinion, is definitely worth it.

Another important thing is that Arcido is launching a Kickstarter campaign for another great carry-on backpack.The new backpack is 100% waterproof, has adaptable laptop compartment, document holder and again it’s perfect for organized travel.

  • This looks like the perfect luggage solution! A while ago we had to travel in comfort, but it was mandatory that we present ourselves as proper city “chicks” when we arrive at the destination and finding what to pack in was a struggle. This is an awesome idea! Thank you!
