I love this thing and the system it’s built for! I own both a duffel and a backpack and find myself swapping between the folio and classic pouch at least once a day. It’s slim profile coupled with the luxurious design of both bags has definitely garnered plenty of attention from friends and people I’ve encountered in my travels.
I love being able to keep an external battery (super slim), cables, chapstick, Apple Pencil, AirPods, keys, cards and ID at the ready at all times without the use of a single pocket in my pants.
The pegs are pretty durable although I did have one chip (not on the folio version, but could’ve easily been, in the manner it was damaged) which led to a significant decrease in confidence my property would stay put in transit thru the city or airport. Monos was great and got me a replacement without any fuss. Their c/s is top notch, for real. Yes you’d expect to have such service under warranty but the agent I was handled by was so professional, pleasant and a joy to communicate with! (Thanks Ruth)!
The only thing I regularly finding myself wanting is for the quick snap storage options to have a means to cover up the magnets when not attached to a bag. For obvious aesthetic reasons but also a means of protection to. They aren’t fragile at all but I still wouldn’t mind that peace of mind.
