Our Story


A family run business, More than a backpack was started by husband and wife duo Matt & Jen in early 2019.

Before children became their main passion, a love of travelling saw them embark on a year long world trip in 2012 around Asia and South America, which really sparked their passion for backpacks. 

Both working in the marketing and e-commerce sectors they decided to pull their talents together and create More than a backpack. 

More than a backpack is run like a family business and want to give their customers that feeling.

"We care about children and the community. That's why we've chosen to donate $1 from every sale to help feed hungry children in America. We are blessed to be able to put food on our table everyday. We want to help, in the small way we can, by donating to families that are not as fortunate as us. " - Matt
