About

MOS was born on Kickstarter in 2012 with the MOS organizer, a magnetic organizer for your cables. Since then we’ve successfully launched kickstarters for the MOS Spring charging cables, the MOS REACH power adapter, and in 2016 the MOS PACK.  

For the last two years we’ve been working to make the best Travel backpack for your Electronics – One that can stand up to the rigors of almost any adventure and that you can plug in to charge all of your gear. The MOS BLACKPACK is the result of all that we have learned along the way.

While we’ve been working on the MOS BLACKPACK we’ve also been working to improve the original MOS Pack. We are now proud to introduce the MOS Pack GRANDE! We took the original MOS Pack and made it bigger and better in every way.

 The expansion zipper expands the MOS Pack Grande to 40 L of capacity. It took us 70 pounds of beans to test this.

 The massive laptop pocket fits almost any laptop

 The shoulder straps expand to fit almost any shoulder. They are wide for extra comfort when carrying heavy loads

 The internal water bottle pocket easily fits a 40 oz water bottle.

                         

The MOS Reach C is our favorite adapter. The 60W USB Type C port has plenty of power for your macbook, many USB-C laptops, and USB-C smartphones. It even supports fast charging for the new iPhones. The 3 USB-A ports can output up to 15W, plenty for most USB-A devices.

If you have a laptop or another device that uses a traditional AC plug for power, then we recommend the Reach+ power adapter. 

Now you can just plug in your backpack instead of having to plug in each device separately!

The 1680d ballistic nylon exterior makes the BLACKPACK extremely resistant to abrasion and tearing. It is water resistant to protect against light rain or splashes. The black color looks professional while still being rugged.

 The Nylon Bond Thread used in the BLACKPACK is some of the strongest available.  Here you can see a single strand easily holding 15 pounds of weight.

The ripstop nylon interior is incredibly durable. Thanks to the water resist coating it is easy to clean.  The bright orange color makes it easy to see everything that is inside of your backpack. No more digging around to find things!

The handle and straps are Bar Tack reinforced to withstand extremely heavy weights or sudden jerks.

We've used YKK Vislon Zippers to with extremely durable Hypalon pulls. These self-lubricating zippers become smoother the longer you use them.

The luggage Pass Through allows you to put your BLACKPACK on top of your rolling suitcase when traveling.

We love the thin profile of the MOS BLACKPACK, but when you need extra space the expansion zipper instantly ads 8 Liters to the total volume of the pack.

The MOS BLACKPACK is designed to work perfectly with the MOS Nest Flight Bag, a bag designed to stand up perfectly under the seat of an airplane and hold all of your essentials for the flight.

The Built in Rain Fly makes sure that your electronics stay safe and dry in heavy rain.  It stores in a pocket at the bottom of the bag to provide extra padding for your laptop and other electronics when not in use.

The passport pocket keeps your passport safe and secure while still being easily accessible

The boarding pass pocket is easy to access from one side, so you don't have to completely take off your pack to quickly access it while traveling.

The quick access pocket is perfect for anything that you use often.  It has a microfiber lined hard shell so you don't have to worry about things getting smashed or scratched.

The internal water bottle pocket helps your backpack keep a thin profile and can fit up to a 32 oz bottle. 

If there isn't space inside your bag for the water bottle then you can hang it externally with the water bottle flyout.

 You don't have to worry about cars seeing you at night thanks to the reflective silk screen on the straps and back of the BLACKPACK.

The laptop pocket will fit up to a 15" laptop in our pre production pack. The early bird production run will slightly expand this pocket to fit most 15.6" laptops. 

 The tablet pocket will fit almost any tablet with a case. It even can fit a 12" macbook.

 The cell phone pocket is a convenient place to put your phone when charging.

The power bank pocket is big enough for most power banks and the bungees let you plug things in wherever you need to.  The MOS BLACKPACK doesn't come with a power bank, but you can pick your favorite one and put it here!

 The bungees make it easy to feed large and small cables through the cable channels at the side of the laptop pocket.

 The cable snaps are a perfect place to coil excess cable.

The cable pass-throughs to the main outer pocket and quick access pocket make sure that all of your devices have juice.

 The EVA Foam Straps wrap comfortable around your shoulder.

 The sternum strap can be adjusted up or down and has a bungee to adjust for movement. Or it can be removed completely if you prefer no sternum strap

The EVA foam panels have air channels that promote circulation. This makes the BLACKPACK comfortable even on hot days. 

                   

MOS Spring Cables, the MOS Nest Plane bag, the REACH C power adapter, and the REACH+ Power adapter all work great with the BLACKPACK. They are available on mosorganizer.com

1st Year - Full Coverage

Full coverage for any manufacturer defects or damage from normal wear and tear or transit damage to the BLACKPACK. With limited exceptions MOS will replace or repair the BLACKPACK and pay shipping costs within the US. This does not include cosmetic only damage (such as scratches or stains on the fabric),  damage from abuse, or damage to or loss of the bag's contents, loss of use of the bag or similar expenses.

5 Years - Coverage for manufacturer defects and product failures

Coverage for any manufacturer defects or product failures from normal use. These might include zipper failures, seams splitting, or handle or straps detaching. With limited exceptions MOS will replace or repair the BLACKPACK. This does not include damage from transit or damage not related to a failure in workmanship or materials. It also does not include cosmetic only damage, damage from abuse, or damage to or loss of the bag's contents, loss of use of the bag or similar expenses.

We include free US shipping to all backers. 

We currently do not ship outside of the US. We strive to proved prompt, high quality service. We have found that we are unable to live up to our high standards for international orders and customers. If you would like the product internationally then you will need to use a freight forwarder.

Risks and challenges

There are always unforeseen obstacles in bringing a new product to life. After four successful Kickstarters and over two years of making backpacks we feel confident in our ability to prepare for and overcome these obstacles. Our supply chain and logistics are established and ready to go. We are committed to making the BLACKPACK everything that you hope it will be and more.
