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 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 70,000 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.

    Quality Bag

    Great colour and strong material makes this bag handsome and practical. Slightly bigger than expected- but perfect for the job.

    Not practical

    I don't like it at all.

    The side pockets are fine for a water bottle but useless for most other things as they don't zip. This leaves no external pockets for the items I need quick and easy access to (work pass, train tickets etc). The internal zip pocket is poorly placed, it gets in the way of using the laptop pocket, is very small and made of weak material. I end up having to put lots of smaller items into the black hole that is the main body of the bag.

    Also size wise, i end up carrying my lunch in a separate bag because the main pouch of the bag does not fit a small tupperware box. It's deep but can't accomodate a basic everyday item.

    It's made of reasonable quality material, quite deep and the shoulder straps are okay. But if it wasn't for the helping kids initiative I'd have returned it.

    Thank you for your honest feedback, Kevin. We're sorry to hear the Madlug bag hasn't been a practical choice for your daily needs. Our design team works hard to balance functionality with style, but we understand no bag is one-size-fits-all. Your comments on the pocket placement and size are insightful and will help guide future improvements. We appreciate you supporting our mission to help give dignity to children in care despite the bag not fully meeting your expectations. If you wish we would be happy for you to return it to be replaced with one of our other backpacks that may suit your needs better. Happy Madlugging!
