Add a Metro Folio Kit

Every day is different, and so are the essential items you want with you. Every Metro bag comes with a Classic Kit, but to really up your everyday-carry game, add a Metro Folio Kit so you can swap your essentials as quickly as your needs change.

All QuickSnap™ Metro Kits can be easily swapped between the Backpack and Duffel bag.

Sustainably made

Our Metro bags use only vegan materials, including felt made from recycled plastic bottles.

Free shipping

We’ll cover shipping on all orders to the contiguous US and Canada.

QuickSnap™ Modular Kit System

Our Metro Backpack and Metro Duffel are designed for everyday life on the move. With our unique QuickSnap™ Modular Kit System, the interchangeable Metro Kit snaps off and on with ease, so you can quickly swap kits or transfer to another Metro bag.

Boarding a plane or train but don’t want to sacrifice legroom? Stow your travel bag and just bring your Metro Kit to your seat. Going out but travelling light? Snap off your Metro Kit and step out. However you move, your essentials are just a quick snap away.

A place for everything

Keep your laptop protected but ready to grab at a moment’s notice in its own dedicated compartment, accessible without needing to open the whole backpack. Phone, passport, or wallet that you want to keep close? Use the hidden back pocket with a quick-access magnetic closure.

Shoes, gym clothes, wet bathing suits, water bottle or anything else you don’t want mixing with your other items? A stretchable, waterproof privacy compartment keeps them out of sight and separate from the rest of your backpack’s contents.

Pretty good but not amazing, with a few tweaks could be the perfect backpack

I spent an extensive amount of time shopping for a replacement work/travel bag, and in the end chose Monos because it had most of the things I was looking for, including:

- Big enough for travel (i.e., packing a set of clothes, computer, personal items, etc.) but small enough to fit under an airplane seat and not overwhelm my short frame (taller than about 16-17" looks and feels ridiculous on me)

- A dedicated laptop pocket in the back that was small, rather than taking up half the internal space, so that ...

- The main compartment is big enough to pack a day's worth of stuff and zips open fully to make this easier

- An extra secret pocket (I use for passport) and strap to attach to luggage

- Attractive/professional-looking design and durable material that is easy to clean

- The switch-able front pouch ("Metro Kit") seemed cool, and ideal for travel

- It didn't have an integrated power-bank-cord set up, which I never use and just takes up space/adds weight to the pack

I've had the backpack about a week, and while I haven't been able to travel with it yet (thanks COVID!) I've fully packed it and taken it out for a spin a few times. Here are my initial thoughts:

PROS:

- The main interior compartment is large, and can indeed hold a lot of things

- The detachable Metro Kit seems to work well and have pretty good interior organization

- The outer material is nice and feels durable even though the backpack is light weight

- The back pocket is big enough for my laptop (13") and…

Absolutely in love

This backpack is perfect for the commuter or traveler or student. The fact that it opens wide and makes everything easily accessible means so much. Not to mention that the vegan leather is absolutely soft and luxurious. I would highly recommend this backpack for its esthetic beauty and practical functionality.

Perfect Personal Item

I just finished writing up a very long in depth review on the carry-on and now needed to add my review on the metro backpack!

Long story short, I wanted to find the perfect carry-on and personal item combo; a set that I could take on any airline and not have to worry about it fitting their sizing restrictions. The carry-on (regular) and Metro backpack fit exactly what I was looking for!

Unboxing the backpack i was so surprised how lightweight it is! Putting on the backpack felt so comfortable with the thick padded straps and the overall fitting. I am a 5’9 male and it definitely fit perfect for me. The compartments in this bag are never ending; organized to the brim! The way it fully opens allowing maximum packing is so ideal, why have I waited this long to buy a good backpack?! The snap module is very easy to use, a little more so when it’s not empty. Putting it back on is actually much quicker than I thought! I even tested it with my eyes closed and was able to take it off and put it back on in under 10 seconds. Having the snap module kit is perfect for my toiletry kit, a quick snap off at the airport for screening and back onto the bag. Makes it so going through security much easier than a TSA agent tearing through your entire bag to open a toiletry kit.

The inside is so smooth and accents are very well done. I ended up getting the black and grey to go along with our luggage colour choices. It fits perfectly in the carry on (regular) handle when fully extended,…

Top Notch Backpack

I was so excited to receive my Metro Backpack today after pre-ordering in November. I love my Monos Carry-On Plus in Mahogany so I ordered the backpack in Mahogany to match. I was very impressed that, like the suitcases, the backpack also came in its own dust bag as I wasn’t expecting that - a nice surprise! The backpack itself is light, extremely spacious, and feels sturdy. I really like the snap on the top handle of the bag so that it makes the zipper less accessible to others as you’re wearing it. The straps themselves also have a couple of loops that could be used to hang a water bottle or hand sanitizer. I love that the bag opens flat and the material inside is soft, definitely helping to protect a laptop during travel. The snap-off pouch is easy to use and has a detachable clasp on the inside that can be used to clip your keys to while traveling. This really makes me want to order the Metro Folio for longer travels. Overall, I’m super impressed with the quality and functionality of this backpack. Definitely no regrets with my purchase and I can hardly wait to take it on my next flight or even as an overnight bag on a local adventure.

Service help

I just wanted to say a bit about your customer service representative, I’m a older gentleman who’s technically challenged. I had a bit of trouble trying to place a order. The rep I believe her name was Miko spent over half a hour helping me, did not get frustrated with me at all, and held my hand all the way through till we were finished, if half the people in this company of this quality, I know I’ll have a heck of a product. Thanks Bob
