Do your products come with a warranty?
All our bags, apparel, accessories and merchandise come with a one-year warranty.
What is covered under warranty?
This warranty covers only manufacturing defects and does not cover any damage caused by misuse (such as transportation of unusual items), neglect, accidents, abrasion, exposure to extreme temperatures, solvents, acids, water, normal wear and tear or transport damage (by airlines, for example).
Incidental and consequential damages are not covered by this warranty, nor are labor charges or damages attributable to work performed by anyone other than Madlug.
Any repair or replacement, covered by our warranty, will be at our expense, including any costs required to return the repaired or replacement Product back to you. If the Product needs replacing but is no longer available, we will substitute your original Product for a comparable Madlug Product.
How do I file a warranty claim?
If you wish to file a warranty claim please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include a copy of your proof of purchase in the email, the name of the product and a description of the problem. At Madlug, we throughly check our backpacks to ensure they meet our high standards. If however, a problem does occur that is caused by a manufacturing defect in the material, or the workmanship, we will in our discretion, fix or replace the product in accordance with the warranty terms and conditions.
How many bags have been donated?
To date over 64,000 bags have been donated with a further 10,000 bags in production and they will be fully distributed throughout 2023.
What bag do the children get?
The bag itself is unbranded to avoid stigma. It folds away to fit neatly into a sock drawer or a Social Worker’s car boot without wasting storage space. And each bag has a label that says “You are incredible” to remind every child that they have value, worth and dignity.
How do you give the donated bags?
In 2022 alone, we donated over 12,000 pack-away travel bags across the UK and Ireland. These go to social workers in local authorities and foster carers, as well as directly to young people and their families.
How do you decide where the bags go?
Bags are donated at our own discretion according to where there is a need for them. We partner with various local authorities largely across the UK and Ireland, seeking out new partnerships through word of mouth.
100% Committed to our cause.
We're a certified social enterprise registered as a "Community Interest Company". This means that you can be assured that 100% of our profits and assets are locked to benefit children in care.

- MWMichael W.Verified ReviewerReviewingGrey Tech BackpackI recommend this productRated 5 stars1 month agoBest Option for Laptop Backpack
I’ve had my grey Madlug Tech Backpack for over two years now and use it on a daily basis. My Laptop, iPad and notebook are stored comfortably and securely inside. It has worn really well and the additional zip in the front is handy for text books etc. The various pockets and slots for phone, pens and keys etc are also really practical making it the go to bag for students, designers and anyone who finds themselves transporting tech and books on a regular basis.

- SHSImon H.Verified BuyerReviewingGrey Tech BackpackI recommend this productRated 5 stars11 months agoThe best laptop bag I have every had!
This is by far the best laptop bag I have ever had!
It is much more comfortable than my previous strap bag and has solved my back/shoulder pain which I experience when using my previous bag.
My laptop is 15.6" but fits perfectly (even though the bag lists compatibility up to 15.5").
The quality of the stitching and the handles are excellent. Everything about this bag feels safe, strong and secure.
I use a 10.2 inch iPad which doesn't quite fit in the internal tablet compartment of the bag as I use the LOGITECH Combo Touch iPad 10.2" Keyboard Folio Case which makes the iPad a bit too bulky. The tablet pouch of this bag is best suited for tablets smaller than 10.2-inch tablets (unless using a slimline case). There is lots of padding throughout the backpack so the tablet could go in other places.
Not only does this bag have a secret pocket for sensitive documents (it's so cool), there are lots of spacious compartments and sections for cables, power adapters, pens and notebooks.
The internal power bank compartment is a bit small, so you need to use a cylindrical power bank (a flat version will not fit) however, whilst this is a cool and handy feature to have, it is not a deal-breaker for me as it is not a feature I can see myself using often.
