FAQs

IS This Available to the Public?

Not yet! The ISM Backpack 2.0 is only available to a limited group of people and by referral only. It isn't accessible via our website navigation because of the small quantities that we have available. We'll open the 2.0 Backpack up to the public in the coming months.

As a benefit of being a pre-order customer and to show our appreciation for your support, we're offering the 2.0 Backpack at $25 off the regular price.

 

WHEN WILL MY BAG ARRIVE?

We plan to deliver the bags in early/mid July. They're currently on a boat crossing the Pacific Ocean and are scheduled to arrive at our warehouse at the end of June.

We'll ship them out as soon as they arrive and will keep you updated with the shipping status and any changes that might occur.

 

WHAT'S NEW WITH THE BACKPACK 2.0?

We listened to your feedback about how we can make the ISM Backpack even better and incorporated those ideas into the Backpack 2.0. New features include a leather luggage passthrough, additional interior pockets for your water bottle, and a keychain ring.

We also improved the materials and construction of the bag with small details that oftentimes go unnoticed. For us, the details matter.

 

WILL OTHER SIZES AND COLORS BE AVAILABLE?

The new ISM Backpack 2.0 is now available in the Large Size with Gold Accents. Because of limited quantities, we are only able to offer the bags on a first come, first serve basis and expect to sell out.

A smaller size and additional accent colors will be available in the coming weeks and months. Email us at carry@ismbags.com if you're interested and we'll update you on the details!

 

WHY HAS THE PRICE INCREASED?

Adding new features (like the leather luggage strap) comes with a higher cost to make the bag. Instead of cutting costs, we focused on creating the highest quality product without compromise. We stand by our belief that you're getting a better bag than you paid for — quality at half the price of comparable brands like TUMI and Armani.

 

WHERE ARE THE BAGS MADE?

The bags are made at the same factory as brands like TUMI, Longchamp, and Armani. We source the highest quality materials and spend time obsessing over the details so that we can provide you with a better bag than you paid for.

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.
