About

 Oxna : the carry-on backpack for travel minimalists.

 Aro : the ultra-lightweight day pack for use when you arrive at your destination.

We are travel minimalists. When we travel, every item we pack is one we have to carry. After a lot of travel, we realized that reducing clutter and focusing on the essentials made our travel much, much better. That’s why we prefer to travel with less, and why we developed Oxna. 

A carry-on backpack shouldn’t just be about maximizing what you can fit in the overhead locker. We would rather travel with fewer, carefully curated items than everything we could ever possibly need.  The ultimate freedom is to travel unburdened by things. Oxna lets you take everything you need in a sleek minimalist pack that can be taken as carry-on.

We plan to ship these in November and guarantee that they will arrive in time for Christmas! We would really appreciate your support with the campaign!


Our packing cube is designed to fit exactly inside the main compartment of Oxna.

Make more of the space you have rather than using more space. That was our inspiration for our compression packing cube which can reduce the amount of space required for your clothes. Roll or fold your clothes into the cube, zip it up and place it inside Oxna. It’s designed to fit exactly in the main pocket, leaving more room for other things you may need. And with its dual pockets, you can separate your clean and dirty clothes. 

Dimensions

Uncompressed : 33 X 38 X 13cm [13" X 15" X 5"]

Compressed: 33 X 38 X 5cm [13" X 15" X 2"] 

Separate your clean clothes from your dirty stuff. Our compression cube has an internal divider to keep your laundry apart. 

Pack your clothes into the cube, use the zip to compress your stuff and load it into Oxna : it's designed to fit perfectly inside the backpack.  

 Aro is a daypack that folds up to be tiny - easy to take with you on your trip and use at your destination. It weighs just 200g! We took feedback from our customers to develop Aro, which features airmesh in the shoulder straps and weatherproof zips. It's made with high quality, lightweight materials and YKK zips.

We have been working with our current supplier for almost three years, and we chose them not only for the high quality of manufacturing, but also for fair employment practices. As a small business, we are very hands-on with our supply chain and we wouldn't work with anyone we didn't feel comfortable with. We're confident you'll be happy with the great quality of workmanship and offer a 5-year warranty on all of our travel gear.   

Size matters. As experienced travellers, we learned this the hard way. Collectively clocking up hundreds of thousands of air miles while testing our products, we discovered that the less we carried the greater the freedom we had. At Arcido, our goal is to create premium bags and accessories that allow you to travel efficiently and in style. We believe the ultimate freedom is to travel unburdened by things. 

With two Kickstarter campaigns already under our belt, we have been designing and selling minimalist travel gear for the last three years. Our latest campaign brings together this experience into three new products which are now available for a huge pre-launch discount.

Risks and challenges

Although we have successfully delivered two Kickstarter campaigns on time, we need to be clear about some of the risks of this project. Shipping delays do happen - sometimes at sea, at ports or in the final delivery stage. Our supplier is reputable and we have been working with them for several years, but there is always a chance that they will not be able to deliver our goods on time.

Environmental commitments

Long-lasting design

Our warranty is 5 years, but our products are designed to last much longer than that. We believe buying cheap means buying twice. Arcido products represent high quality and great value, eliminating the need to buy replacement luggage a few years down the line.

Reusability and recyclability

Our travel gear is designed to be used again and again. Aro is a great way to avoid using single-use plastic bags when you shop.

Sustainable materials

We're using recycled black Kodra for this project which means less waste. We aim to use recycled materials wherever possible. Our packaging is also kept to a minimum.
