The Perfect Backpack

After using a sports brand backpack for the last decade, I decided it was time for me to get a more refined, stylized backpack for work. I did a lot of research across other higher-end backpacks, comparing across price, warranty, weight, and value for money. After looking at and comparing different backpacks for months, it seemed that the ISM Daypack best fit the bill, so I decided to take the plunge.

When I received the backpack, I loved the care, quality, and attention to detail even in the packaging. I loved the dust bag and note that accompanied the backpack. So far, the bag has exceeded my expectations. It's lightweight, yet still fits everything (e.g. laptop, folder with papers, notebook, computer charger, phone charger, headphones, water bottle, writing utensils). I've only had the backpack for a little over a week and already have gotten many compliments! I would highly recommend this backpack!

A Technical, Functional, Contemporary Statement Piece.

I was looking for a bag that wasn't oversized or overpriced that I could feel good wearing while complimenting my style instead of taking away from it, while it still being functional.

This is the most detailed, minimalistic, modern, and convenient bag i've ever owned! I choose the black zippers which has a really polished & elegant look to it that exceeded my expectations after choosing it over the gold. I regret nothing.

The backpack is EXTREMELY detailed and well thought-through with beautiful stitching, and to my surprise, has rubber padding at the bottom of the bag to give a little extra grip on wherever it's placed. I love how unisex this bag is in the sense that if a girl wears it, it looks like it’s meant for women. And if a guy wears it, it looks like it’s meant for men. The bottom half is this silky smooth leather while the top is nylon, and I actually love the contrast between these 2 materials. In the back, you have a nice breathable mesh as well as having it under the leather straps which make the bag feel super comfy, not having to sacrifice comfort for fashion. When you set the bag down, it actually stands up straight and doesn't fall over which I love. Even if you fill the bag up with your belongings, it retains its structure without giving you the saggy diaper look. The bag opens up in a very boxed and easily viewable manner where you can see everything in your bag, unlike other ones that are just a black bottomless pit.

ISM is a brand which proves that…

Quality luxe backpack that does more than just look good

I wanted a backpack that did more than just look good. I wanted something that took the best of a Samsonite or a Tumi and married it with the style of APC, Common Projects and Saint Laurent. When I came across ISM on Instagram while checking out CP’s own series of backpacks, it ticked all the boxes. It was minimalist, well-designed, had good quality materials and had all the functionality and compartments I needed. A bonus and surprise was how light the bag was. Weight matters to me a lot and while I love all leather backpacks - the weight adds up and takes a toll on my shoulders. The ISM bag is extremely light! The attention to detail helped me make my decision easier too. Imo it's the right combination of comfort, design and quality for a not impossible cost.

If you're looking to support a company that not only has quality product* but also sincerely cares about their customer, ISM is for you.

**Truly this bag is to die for. A well thought out design from material to zipper.

Great bag for work

I’m bag obsessed, and have always loved my large totes, until they caused a visit to the orthopaedist for shoulder pain (who knew you shouldn’t walk 2+ miles a day with 30 lbs pinned on one shoulder?). I wanted a bag that wouldn’t make me look like a college student and that I would feel good about taking to corporate, professional meetings. This bag fits the bill perfectly. It has a great, sleek look but a ton of space. I find that I’m not rifling through this bag the way I used to with my tote. The back compartment perfectly fits my Surface, leather portfolio, and I even usually put my mouse in there as well. The front pocket is great for keys, phones, chapstick, etc. I usually carry a smaller purse, water bottle, and various other items in the large compartment. I’ve had a few women comment on the bag admitting their large totes are giving them pain but they didn’t know what to substitute. This is a great solution, that looks good and professional, and the price is appropriate for the quality.

FAQs

Have questions? Read our full FAQs or contact us here.

We use high quality, full grain-leather made from a reputable tannery in Taiwan. The zippers are from YKK, a Japanese manufacturer known for quality zippers that last a lifetime. Both the Nylon exterior and interior polyester twill are sourced from a supplier in Taiwan. We added a water-proof layer of coating to all of our materials so that you don’t have to worry about moving around in a drizzle.

Because we use full grain leather, no two bags are made the same way. This means there might be slight variations in the way your bag looks from the ones we use in the photos. But, we guarantee the same level of quality and craftsmanship for all of our products.

Our leather bags cost the same to make as brands that sell them for 3-4 times the price of ours. Since we sell directly to you, there's no added markup that you normally pay for brands that sell in retail stores.

The Classic Backpack can fit up to a 15.6” Macbook Pro in the laptop compartment while The Smaller Backpack can fit up to a 13" laptop. The inside compartment holds around 17L of volume, which we’ve found can store a pair of shoes, clothes, and the smaller items you’d carry every day. The front pocket is great for those small items that you need quick access to, like gum, subway cards, and everything in between.

Try our Bag Fit Finder to see which bag fits you the best.

The bags are assembled by a manufacturer in Shenzhen that also makes bags for the largest luxury brands. It took us a long time to convince this manufacturer to work with us (we’re by far their smallest customer at the moment), but we’re really excited about their attention to detail and the quality of products they make.

Our products are made to last. But to make sure it looks as good as new for a long time, we recommend wetting a cloth in warm water and gently wiping the surface of the leather every month or so or to remove any stains or scratches.

If you’re not actively using the bag, it’s best to store it in the dustbag we provide or in a cool location, away from sunlight.
