Last month, my buddy over at NayoSmart called me and asked if I want to check out their new backpacks. A few days later the courier arrived with a huge package. Inside I was surprised to find six backpacks. Each different from one another.
NayoSmart is a fresh, cool brand that is addressing the needs of digital nomads who want to travel or commute with their backpacks.
What all these backpacks have in common is they're designed to be both minimalistic and utilitarian.
I've used these six backpacks with my buddy for a month.
All versions have an external USB port for charging. How it works is, you put a power bank inside your backpack and connect it to the port using a short cable that is supplied with a backpack. Then you can charge your phone from the external port. Comes very handy during travel, I've used it at airports a bunch of times already.
Nayo Almighty is a backpack designed for longer journeys. It has lots of compartments to pack your stuff in. It comes with additional toiletry/accessory bags included.
The Almighty has become my main travel backpack right now.
I love its size and how it feels on my back. Even if it's fully-loaded my back doesn't start hurting.
Its lightweight makes it ideal for carrying loads over long distances! Its comfort ensures you won't feel any tiring out. The straps keep your backpack in place. The bag can be used on both mountain and desert hiking or for traveling to different places. Its durability ensures your backpack will last. I personally believe the Almighty is one of the best travel packs out there
Acme is a stylish backpack that is smaller. It looks totally rad and includes a front element that looks like leather, but it's synthetic.
It's a backpack that I would take to a meeting with a client.
The Defensor is Acme's big brother. It's less fashionable, but bigger and looks more professional. You can pack a bit more inside. It's not as fancy but more utilitarian.
It has a TSA locking zip, slash-proof fabric, and hidden pockets to prevent stuff being stolen.
Also known as the Nayo Expendable Travel Backpack. It's a 25 liter backpack that can be expanded to 40 liters using the included zip. It's a solid backpack for everyday carry, but can also be a great travel-commuter backpack for business trips.
The anti-theft shell is awesome if you're often traveling to shady places. It has a TSA certified lock and a slash-proof material. It's super-well padded too.
It's the smallest backpack of them all, but it's the most ergonomic.
The Rover is a general backpack made out of a weird synthetic material that is the most waterproof of them all.
This backpack is designed to sustain EXTREME weather conditions. I was walking back home and it started to rain violently. I was soaking wet. At home, I discovered that there wasn't a single drop of water inside the backpack.
The material is weird. It feels like a plasticky-silicony thing, but it really protects your stuff from rain.
Apart from that, it's just a solid all-arounder.
To be honest, all these backpacks are pretty amazing. It's hard to recommend one because everybody's needs are different. I will definitely be keeping the Nayo Almighty and it will become my main traveling backpack.
If I could buy a few of them, I would get:
NayoSmart is often running discounts and promotions so be sure to keep track of their website. Right now they are selling them at like 30% off which is pretty cool. You can't really find anything that is close to this quality at this price range at Amazon. And trust me, I've tried a lot of backpacks in my lifetime.
