Banjo Brothers Metro Backpack (Discontinued)

With a capacity of 1100 cubic inches, the baby of the Banjo Brothers Backpacks. Big enough for the commute. Twelve interior and exterior pockets, a padded laptop sleeve, and more.

This product has been discontinued.


With a capacity of 1100 cubic inches, you’d be forgiven for not knowing this backpack is the baby of the Banjo Brothers Backpacks.

But unlike it’s larger sibling backpacks, the Metro has more internal organization — instead of a big ol’ waterproof cavern. Its big enough for the commute yet it has a stylishly compact profile, twelve interior and exterior pockets, a padded laptop sleeve, exterior cinch straps, and more.

The Metro Backpack uses the same hanging liner system as Banjo Brothers Messenger Bags, which makes it functionally waterproof since there are no seams to the outside. Another idea borrowed from messenger bags: a cell phone holder mounted to the shoulder strap.

The Metro Backpack sits a little lower on the back than standard backpacks to reduce blind spots. If you use a backpack and a helmet-mounted mirror, you know what we’re talking about.

We vow to stand behind any product that is defective. Our warranty policy is simple — if your bag is messed up due to a defect in materials or workmanship for the life of the bag, we fix it no questions asked. That doesn’t mean you can beat the living snot out it and expert to return it to us as defective. I think we can both let common sense be our guide here. Think of it this way, if your Mom would be OK with you claiming something as a product defect, then chances are it is a defect and the bag should and will be repaired or replaced.
