            A Tough Spacious Bag & Great Customer Service

            I ordered this bag directly from Arcido just before the Amazon strike a few weeks ago (Amazon is their main American fulfillment partner). Didn't appear like it would arrive in time for my departure. But Will and the team had it shipped to me special delivery and super fast. That kind of thing really matters to me and I'm grateful to them. Also the bag is a great travel companion and holds even more than I thought it would. Highly recommended.

            First class rucksack

            I bought this bag to allow me to take more stuff in carry on to cope with low hold baggage limits in budget airlines. It did the job superbly. It's easy to pack and get at things in each compartment even when fully loaded and it's easy to carry either in your hand or over the shoulders.

            Excellent Lightweight Bag - Get the Packing Cubes and Washbag

            This review is based on a recent 3-week tour through the UK. Due to concerns about carry-on weight restrictions on a discount airline, I selected the Faroe. As a committed one-bag traveler, I typically use a bag by Minaal. But in order to save more than 20 ounces, I selected the Faroe. Compared to other travel packs, the Faroe saves weight by eliminating the compartment to stow away the backpack straps, a waist strap and sternum strap. Exterior and interior pockets are kept to a minimum (that's a good thing). The packing cubes designed for the Faroe are very good. I used the large cube and one smaller cube in conjunction with two Arcido washbags. One washbag for toiletries/liquids and one washbag for electronic items and other small items. The clear-sided washbags make it easy to find items inside the bag. The cubes and washbags fit perfectly in the Faroe. This bag proved to be sturdy, comfortable and highly functional. To save more weight, I traveled with an iPad Mini & keyboard in lieu of my MacBook Air. The Faroe's built-in laptop sleeve was a little overkill for this trip, but it appears to provide good protection for almost any laptop. The Faroe's one handle is comfortable, but walking with the bag "suitcase" style because the shoulder straps can get in the way. I missed the sternum strap - the bag might feel a little more secure with the addition of a removable sternum strap - but it's not a dealbreaker. Opening the bag is easy and access to the interior is very good. In the end, my European budget airline didn't care about the weight of my carry-on. They only checked to make sure it fit into their luggage sizer. Like other soft-sided luggage, the Faroe will allow you to squeeze a moderately overstuffed bag into an overhead bin. But resist the temptation to overpack. Embrace what the Faroe is designed for. It's a sleek, lightweight bag that lets you travel with the ease that wheeled-luggage users will never know. Never again worry about the Waverly train station stairs, the cobbled streets of Edinburgh or the uneven sidewalks along Grassmarket. Bonus Tip: GET THIS BAG WITH THE ACCESSORIES - the UK and European equivalent of our American TSA are sticklers for checking liquids. Make it easy on yourself and pack no more than what will fit into one Arcido washbag. The washbag's clear sides makes it easy for security to verify that you're a smart and rule-obeying traveler. I purchased this bag and accessories with my own money. I have not received any freebies, compensation, discounts, or incentives for my review.

            Great for business travel.

            This is the ideal business travel bag. It has a completely separate pocket for your laptop and business papers (it’s not in with your clothes). At the airport you just open up the bag and slide the laptop out with no problem. For meetings or working in an office it looks as professional as any briefcase.

            I’d recommend this to anyone.

            I fly on lots of little short trips throughout the year, so I want something I don’t have to put in the hold. This looked like the perfect option so I gave it a shot after reading positive reviews. Well, they were right. It’s really made travel easier for me. The main compartment opens fully like a suitcase, so I can access everything I need and keep it all organised. I definitely recommend this and it’ll be delivered quickly no doubt.
