A balance that is hard to find elsewhere...

Reviews

Running between classes, clinics, and hospitals, things can get pretty busy in medical school. So I like to keep the rest of my life simple - and the team over at ISM understands that.

The classic backpack strikes a perfect balance between form and function that is hard to find elsewhere in the current market of carryalls. Its understated design delivers a minimalistic, slim profile without compromising on practicality.

The bag is large enough to fit my stethoscope, several textbooks, and a 13” MacBook Pro without breaking a sweat. The separate water-resistant laptop compartment (large enough to fit up to a 15”) and individualized pocket sleeves make your belongings easy to carry and easier to reach. All of this is constructed with full-grain leather and water-resistant nylon exterior, complete with EVA foam and mesh padding for comfort. Packed into a sleek, streamlined design that’s in keeping with your minimalistic lifestyle.

And if you’re wondering about durability, don’t worry about it. I’ve had the bag for about 8 months now, and it has survived daily use through the harsh Canadian winter without a single loose stitch. And just for your peace of mind, the Classic comes with a lifetime warranty.

Thanks again to ISM for having my back (literally)!
