Introduced in Spring 2011 the M/S Backpack has grown to become one of the most iconic and admired styles in our collection.

Introduced in Spring 2011 the M/S Backpack has grown to become one of the most iconic and admired styles in our collection. Clean lines and multi-functional this flexible backpack possesses an obvious Mismo silhouette. Roll the top flaps together for a casual look, or simply bend down the flaps for a more traditional and clean look.

Four pairs of D-rings on the front body ensure the bag can be closed in various positions depending on how much of the bag’s internal volume is utilised. Features three external pockets divided by the leather straps on the front face, an internal padded laptop compartment (fits up to 16”) and opposite a small zip pocket. Solid brass buckles for adjusting the length of the shoulder straps.


A mainstay of the Mismo collection, the army cotton canvas paired with dark brown bridle leather was the first color combination launched when we introduced bags combining fabric and leather back in 2008. This premium canvas fabric was originally developed for the Italian military, underlining the durability and aesthetics of this fine and tight-woven canvas. The fabric’s water-repellent coating helps create a luxurious patina over time. Casual yet sophisticated, the army cotton canvas with its earthy tones of grey, green and brown is a true wardrobe staple.

Composition: CO 94% - PU 4% - PC 2% 

Martindale: 20.000 // Weight: 709 gr. per running meter

Solid brass with golden coating

Our hardware is chosen for its durability and therefore made from a base of solid brass material. To obtain a homogenous surface and to prevent the brass from oxidating over time, they've been give a special Mismo antique golden coating. We source all of our hardware from Italy, working with specific articles that we’ve been using and testing for more than 15 years. We only use classic hardware pieces that we know will stand the test of heavy daily wear, like the sailor hooks that appear in many of our designs.

Army colored

The lining used for our fabric bags is woven from a combination of polyester and viscose. We use this combination as it offers the best durability while still providing a soft and tactile handfeel.

Dark brown, vegetable tanned full grain bridle leather

Full grain is the best quality leather available, maintaining the top layer of the original cowhide intact and unaltered. This ensures that the leather is resistant and ages well, while also highlighting some of the natural characteristics of the grain, such as wrinkles, veins and pores. Only full-grain leather is suitable for aniline dying, a process that relies exclusively on soluble vegetable dyes (also referred to as vegetable tanned/dyed) without covering the surface with a topcoat. Bridle leather refers to the way that a piece of leather (cowhide) is treated with wax both on the flesh and grain sides of the leather. With a thickness of approx. 3mm, only the best grades of leather from older cattle can be used, as a certain age is required for the hide to attain the thickness and sturdiness necessary to become bridle leather. The bridle leather used in Mismo bags is custom-developed in Turkey, and the best leather available for our purposes.

Hand polished YKK Excella zippers

Renowned Japanese company YKK has been producing zippers since 1934. We exclusively use their best zipper available, the Excella zippers. The YKK Excella is the Rolls Royce of zippers, with every element, down to the teeth, perfected and hand-polished. A smooth zipper is indispensable to a well-made bag, after all it should add utility, beauty and longevity to the bag rather than taking away from it.

I currently have several Mismo products (a Tote Bag that was given to me as well as a toiletry kit and a backpack). All the products are of magnificent quality and design. I am delighted with my Mismo products, which are elegant and discreet. Simplicity is the best form of sophistication.
- Richard, Paris, France
I am overwhelmed by the quality of my backpack. I have tried several other premium brands and their backpacks do not match yours at all. Best product ever
- Ole, Gothenburg, Sweden
I am very glad to testify as to the great design, functionality and style of the several Mismo products I have bought over the years - from the shopper, the Express and Rucksack backpacks to the Something Travel Bag, I love my Mismos every day I use them. A big plus is the great customer service who on one occasion recommended to me my preferred colour/style even though it was not listed on the website! I look forward to visiting Mismo again when I am in Copenhagen next time!
- Dominique, Zürich, Switzerland
I have been buying your products for several years, discovering them years ago at Barneys, New York. They are the best-designed products ever seen, a balance between contemporary design and classic shapes. Thanks. The last bag I bought, the M/S Something is exceptional.
- Marco, New York, USA
I have acquired several Mismo bags over past few years, they have all proven to be timeless and trusted companions through their outstanding quality and design. They are versatile enough for most occasions, making them an indispensable part of my daily wardrobe.
