After not finding a backpack that was affordable but also met my needs in terms of the style for a professional environment with the ability to carry everything I needed day to day, I decided to buy the Menos Backpack.
It arrived very quickly with a handwritten thank you note and eco-friendly packaging in line with the brand's ideals.
I had a couple of questions soon after buying the bag, contacted the team at Menos, and received a personalised reply less than 24 hours after sending the message.
I've only had it for a couple of weeks but it has been a game changer for me, I felt able to carry everything needed for any eventuality without it being overstuffed or heavy, and no sweaty back!
It feels high quality and well put together in addition to being extremely well thought out, I hope it lasts the test of time, but if you're considering one, don't hesitate.
This is exactly has advertized. I have been enjoying my backpack so much. It is light and comfortable to wear. I can fit everything l want into it: computer, ipad, chargers, notebooks, miscellaneous pens, etc, workout clothes(minus the shoes). And you can tell it is well made. I really appreciate the water protection for when l get caught out in the rain.
If you’re a more active person, you may not like this backpack since it does take a bit more time than a traditional one to open/close and there is no outside water pouch. I found it really nice for college, lots of compliments.
I feel in love with the bag! It's kinda companion!
Love the design. Great value for money and fast shipping to Denmark as well. Highly recommend to everyone!
Great product, makes me life a lot easier. My one upgrade is everyone knows that your phone goes in the left pocket so the charging port should be on the left side when you wear it!
Really enjoying using the menos bag for work. My favourite parts of the bag are the laptop sleeve, the fact it opens 180 degrees and the little hidden zip pocket. You can see alot of thought when in to making this bag. Highly recommend!!
Fits laptop and other essentials comfortable and perfect toy for a night or two away. Would highly recommend.
This backpack is excellent, especially for the price. the outer shell seems sturdy, and the pockets and space inside are well-planned.
As a barrister, I have to travel to different courts every day. I, therefore, needed a bag that was able to accommodate my papers, laptop, lunch and other tech but one which also looked smart. This bag is doing the job perfectly. It’s sleek, stylish and comfortable. I would highly recommend it.
This backpack is perfect for everyday use
They look great, they’re spacious and they’re well made. Thank you Beth and Liam, you’ve done an amazing job. Wishing you all the best in the years ahead.
I found Menos thanks to Liam's YouTube channel and decided to buy the Menos bag as I was in the market for a professional and stylish backpack. The Menos backpack suits my commuting to work needs incredibly well. Whilst I wish it was slightly bigger, I find in surprising how much stuff will fit inside!
Overall, a highly recommend bag!
Several months on, I still love the bag! It’s amazing, compact and fashionable too! Thanks guys for designing such an amazing product!
I’ve had my Menos for a year now and am absolutely loving using it for my daily commute. It looks and feels sleek and minimalist and it is easy to keep organised with all the internal pockets including the water bottle holder and laptop sleeve.
The 180 degree opening makes it really easy to access all my things and is invaluable when packing my Menos for a weekend away! I also love the soft lined easy access side pocket for my AirPods and passport.
The fact that this back pack is made from a water-resistant material (recycled plastic) is the cherry on the cake.
Thank you so much Liam and Beth, I can’t wait to see what’s next from Menos!
Style and functionality shouldn't cost the earth.
That's why we use recycled materials in our products, only use compostable or recyclable packaging, and every purchase you make funds the collection of 100 plastic bottles' worth of ocean-bound plastic. Learn more.
Less is more.
Meaning "less" in Spanish, Menos is all about getting the most out of a minimalist design. We focus on the essentials to combine uncompromising functionality with a sleek aesthetic. Our products adapt to your needs, meaning you can go from the office to the airport with ease.
Quality and durability should be the norm, not the exception.
We want to make ethical sourcing and quality craftmanship mainstream by offering durable products built to last at an accessible price point.
When you buy any Menos product, you fund the collection of 100 ocean-bound plastic bottles' worth of plastic before it reaches our seas.
Local people in coastal communities exchange the plastic that they collect for money, helping them get access to microfinance, tuition, healthcare and food.
Our first batch of 600 backpacks will mean 60,000 plastic bottles are collected, preventing 1.2 tons of plastic reaching the ocean.
Both the outer fabric and the inner lining of our backpacks are made from recycled polyethylene tetraphyte (RPET). It's a durable, water resistant material made from recycled plastic. Best of all, a 2017 study found that manufacturing RPET uses 59% less energy and releases 32% less CO2 when compared with virgin polyester.
Each backpack is made from the equivalent of 15 recycled plastic bottles.
We want to end single-use plastic, so package our products in compostable bags and recyclable cardboard boxes.
Through our partnership with Tree Nation, we plant a tree for every order made through our website. This means that we more than offset all shipping and production emissions (including emissions from sending our products to our customers).
We also strive to reduce emissions where we can, including through the use of less energy-consuming recycled materials.
In terms of where we manufacture our products, our first batch of backpacks were made in China, as a significant number of the backpack's high-quality components (waterproof YKK zips, ergonomic buckles, backpanel mesh) are manufactured there.
However, we have plans to manufacture future products closer to home to further reduce our CO2 emissions.
