I really love using my Metro backpack! We do a lot of international traveling as a family and this backpack is perfect. It holds a lot more than you would think. It's also very squishable. On one domestic flight, there was no more space for my other carry on so I just smooshed the backpack on top of my other carry on under the seat for take off. No problem! It's a great bag, I highly recommend. A couple of suggestions: Can the straps can be adjusted to be a bit shorter? I am short so even when the straps are adjusted as short as they can go, the bag does not fit quite right and can get tiring to carry, especially when I have it full for travel. Also the straps don't stay the length that I adjust it to- they keep slipping and become longer if my bag is too heavy. It would be nice if there was a slip pocket for a laptop.
The pictures on the website of the Reflective Oxford color do not do it justice. It is simply stunning - this beautiful shimmery grey to silver to white - its hard to describe! Being a neutral color(s) it goes well with everything. I especially love that the interior is that gorgeous bright yellow - it makes finding items very easy and adds a fun quirkiness to the bag. I bought this to use as a diaper backpack as I wanted something stylish, easy to clean and lightweight. I will use it for non-baby purposes too. This is my second MZ Wallace bag - I am addicted.
Okay I am obsessed with my Metro Backpack. I take it when I travel, when I am running around with my children, and when I am going to the gym. It is the perfect gym bag because I can just throw all of my stuff in it and it fits it all! My daughter loves to match me so I bought her the matching Small black backpack to my bigger one. It is perfect for her too because it fits her snacks and toys. This bag is so light and durable and it is very comfortable! I recommend it to everyone!
I am a college student who wanted a light, fashionable backpack to take to class everyday. I was so sick of the bulky heavy ones that I used to use. I am obsessed with my Metro Backpack and always get compliments on it. This backpack is so light and it still remains light when I have my textbooks in it and my laptop. I purchased the Black backpack as my first one and then recently purchased the Magnet when it came back out. I love my Black one but I also LOVE my magnet color because it is still a neutral color, but it is also fun and still goes with everything! I was using my Black one so much that I figured I would splurge and get another one. I can't wait for new colors to come out so I can buy another :)
I discovered the Dawn Bedford color available at Bloomingdale's and much to my excitement, I found an extra pocket (perfect for holding lipgloss, chapstick, gum etc) in the larger exterior zippered pocket of this bag. THIS IS EXACTLY what I always wished the metro would have. MZW, add this feature to EVERY Metro you produce from this point forward! Why is this perfect little gem of a pocket only found in some of your Metro Backpacks (like the mini and now the Dawn Bedford)? I own the cloud color and love the color but that extra pocket on the Dawn Bedford color makes it the winner for me.
Love this backpack! I use this and the Kate as diaper bags. It is so lightweight, PRETTY, and pockets very functional. I use smaller bags to organize the inside (1 bag holds diaper stuff, 1 bag for snacks/restaurant needs and another bag for toys.) I've traveled with this bag on airplane, to beach, and week long vacations and it still looks brand new. The cloud color is GORGEOUS and although it's light in color, it doesn't get dirty easily. When daughter spilled milk on it, I easily wiped it clean. I'd like to see TWO improvements on this backpack: 1-the shoulder straps to tighten a little more 2-a small pocket inside the big outside pocket (like what is in the Nikki) as that would make keeping lipgloss, Chapstick etc so much easier in that pocket. I HIGHLY recommend this backpack. Even though it's pricey-you will enjoy carrying it and despite the amount of things I throw in his bag, I can carry it all day comfortably!
Have admired this backpack for a while. Many backpacks are heavy and cumbersome, even empty. The Wallace backpack is weightless and molds to the shape of the wearer and its contents. Also like the size and zipper openings, and side pockets for phones and keys. My next purchase!
If you are in the market for a backpack, then look no more. The Metro backpack is perfect!! It is light weight, functional, stylish, roomy and comfortable. It is my go to bag for trips or busy days on the go.
It´s perfect for school, perfect as your everyday bag with a modern touch and perfect as a stylish carry on bag for your essentials when flying.
Purchased as a gift. Recipient loved it! Lightweight but very roomy - holds a lot. More durable than I thought it would be.
always on my to buy list! Finally tried is at the Mz store on Crosby street in NYC. super light, the touch on fabric is great, the leather accessories are really well made, a chic backpack for school and short 1-2 day getaway! The olive one fits better! Which I did not expect.
I travel with this backpack on international trips that take me out to remote islands and also to major urban locations. It fits incredibly well underneath seats and holds much more then it looks. If you want hands free versatility, this is the way to go.
I love this bag bc it is so versatile and you can use it with pretty much anything u wear.
Omg!! I love my new backpack and I get compliments everywhere I go. It's so lightweight yet spacious. I literally carry everything I need in this bag. My iPad, MacBook Pro, MakeUp case, journal , a few files, snacks for the kids and of course 2 bottles of water. 1 in each side pocket. It's a perfect match to my large metro tote. Love this brand and plan on expanding my collection.
I purchased this bag to use as a diaper bag and couldn't be happier. The size is perfect for holding all of baby's essentials and my wallet/phone without looking over stuffed. The fabric is easy to wipe off and keep clean. The backpack comes with a smaller zippered bag which I use as a diaper clutch. Overall I'm super happy with this purchase.
I have many MZ Wallace bags and this is one of my favorites! The quilted fabric give it a classy/classic look while still being a functional backpack. This is my go to travel bag. I stuff my carry-on toiletries in a quart-size bag in the front zipper pocket (fits perfectly) and all my cosmetics and handbag type items fit inside with room to spare. I haven't loaded it down with books so I don't know how it would perform as a school/work bag but it is perfect for travel!
What I adore most about this backpack.... It's "Mommy friendly"!!! I recently had a baby & I enjoy looking stylish as well as mature while pushing My stroller through the city. I'm considering getting another one just because.
This backpack is perfect for me. Light, practical, and looks nice. All my friends told me this backpack is pretty. Also side pockets are very useful. Sometimes I put a water bottle, cell phone, or even sunglasses. Inner pocket is very good for organizing small stuff such as lipstick, mirror, or powder case. I bought this for my class say, but I use everyday. I fall in love this bag, so I consider to buy shoulder bag. Awesome backpack!!! I guarantee it!
I love this bag. I use it for school and it fits just the right amount of things. It doesn't look bulky and it is so lightweight. It is so chic looking as well. I also adore the pouch that comes inside. It fits so much and I love how it attaches to the bag. Overall, this is the best backpack I have ever owned.
GREAT BAG! GREAT COLOR!
I love this back pack - I am a commuter and I carry a lot of stuff - This bag weighs nothing and is comfortable to wear and fits everything! LOVE IT!!!
Lightweight, packable and stylish. especially like that it has zip closure and the outside zip pocket. Would love an additional outside zip slip pocket above the outside zipper pouch pocket that exists.
Love this spacious yet stylish backpack in black, it goes with everything! I used it with day to day outfits but it became a must for my travel in style!
I bought this for my daughter who is in high school and likes to look cute and stylish. Right size and its all black which is her favorite color. Her friends seem to like it also a few have bought the same bag.
I've ordered the metro backpack twice and returned it twice. I want to love it-- it has all the features I'm looking for in a light backpack--- but for the price the plastic zippers drive me crazy. I love that it was an inside zip pocket (other brands don't have this and it's a very important feature for me). I love that it has outside pockets for bottles/drinks. I just wish they would have used nicer zippers.
I love the idea of an MZ Wallace backpack. I get so much use out of my large Metro tote in Plum, that I thought this would be a perfect item for my school and commuting needs. However, there are a few things I think could be improved. I carry this backpack for school use, so I usually have a book, a small laptop, and things like wallet, glasses case, and a snack or two. With all of that, the bag appears stuffed when I wear it. It would look and function better if I didn't have to cram and struggle to get my stuff in and out of it because of the size. Other than that, I like the idea of the bag. Also: - the key fob is hard to get to if it is used for keys (it's on the inside tucked away) - the front zipper pocket does not hold much more than a wallet and a glasses case - the side water pockets only hold smaller bottles (e.g. a Nalgene is too big) - the back inside pocket is weird if stuff is in it because it sits directly on one's back, and feels awkward - the straps on the shortest adjustment are quite on the long side (it sits a bit lower) I am keeping and using the bag, but these are some of the downsides for me, that have come with its use.
I found myself using my backpack more, my handbags less and I didn't like switching back and forth. Still, I wanted a backpack that didn't look like I was out for a hike. I finally decided on this one in black. I couldn't be happier. It easily accommodates everything I was carrying in my old pack AND it is lighter in weight. I thought I would miss all the compartments in my old bag but I prefer the simpler design of this bag. I will have to see how it holds up to everyday use but I am keeping my fingers crossed because I love it.
I am hard on everything I own, but this bag always looks crisp and clean and well-defined, despite taking a beating daily on the subway, to the gym, to the Greenmarket - it's constantly stuffed. I have my hands free with my cell, debit and metrocard readily retrievable from the side pockets, a thousand times as I walk to work. A magazine is folded into the side pocket on the off chance I have a moment to sit. Genius.
I just wore my new Steel Metallic Metro Backpack today and love how comfortable and light it feels on my back. The zippers are easy to open and close and the padded straps keep the bag from shifting. The side pockets are great for storing a water bottle and my cell phone which I can reach without taking the bag off my shoulders. The inside bag is larger than the ones that come with the Jane etc which makes keeping smaller items from getting lost in the main compartment. Thank you MZ WALLACE for yet another winner!
I have been a fan of the MZ Wallace oxford collection for years. I have more metro totes than I would like to admit. I'm so excited to see the addition of a lightweight oxford backpack to this group of bags. It's not too big, not too small, and the Sahara Metallic Oxford is GORGEOUS! --Jessica
