Designer's note

Designer's note

We introduced the Explorer in Spring 2012 as our first serious travel bag, and it’s still the most spacious weekender in the collection. The inspiration for the bag came from simply strapping a leather belt around another bag which we had wrapped in an army green canvas. The expression and mix of materials was so pure and raw. We kept the belt buckle feature to be able to close the bag tightly and designed the handles with an extra, wider piece of leather underneath adding durability to the bag and a certain vigour to the look of it. The rest we tried to keep simple – aside from the bottom leather grid obviously. Simple at first hand – complex when you look a little deeper.

As the name suggests, this bag calls for a serious adventure. The M/S Explorer contains ample interior space to hold all the essentials (whatever they may be) for a couple of weeks in the wilderness. Use the handles to carry the bag by hand, over the shoulder or as a backpack or use the detachable shoulder strap if the bag is filled to the maximum. The bag features two outside pockets, an inside pocket in each gusset closed with a leather strap, and an inside zip pocket.

Fabric

Ever since we introduced this sultry combination, it has become a true Mismo classic. Drawing inspiration from the black beaches at the South Coast of Iceland, this nylon is designed for heavy-duty wear and will stand up to nearly any test. Constructed from ballistic nylon – so-called for its tight basket weave and high tenacity – it is slightly thicker and heavier than our other fabrics and is characterized by extreme durability. Waterproof by nature.

Composition: PA 64% - PL 19% - PU 17% 

Weight: 862 gr. per running meter

Solid brass with gunmetal coating

Our hardware is chosen for its durability and therefore made from a base of solid brass material. For our series of ballistic nylons we've given the hardware a sleek gunmetal coating for a clean and modern look. 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.

Grey 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.

Black, 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. 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.

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.

No dedicated laptop compartment but plenty of space to fit it all!
Finding a bag that ticks most boxes isn't easy. I'm glad to have found something reliable for everyday use from Mismo. The quality and the finish is well deserving of its competitive price tag, and I am extremely pleased to have found something that I enjoy carrying around and not shy to recommend to people looking for high quality bags.

Dear Mismo team, Thanks for giving the opportunity to share my opinion. I now own a couple Mismo bags, and honestly there is no other brand that combines such levels of aesthetics and durability. These bags age very well thanks to high quality materials and simple but clever design. I always look forward to new designs and colors. I realized that a weekend getaway without a Mismo bag doesn't have the same flavor. Congrats to the Mismo team for your amazing work!

I discovered the Mismo brand and products at Bon Marché in Paris. Since then, I have already ordered a bag on the Mismo site and another in Paris. The quality of service, the products, the philosophy of the brand, everything is there. The communication is also very well done, even if for me who am not bilingual, a site in French would be welcome. Well done for your products and your communication!!!!
