This is not a large backpack. Let’s get that out of the way. But If Liam Neeson was our backpack, he’d call that 30-liter pack we all dragged to high school and let it know what’s up: ”I’m not the largest backpack, but what I do have is a very particular set of spaces, featuring a very particular set of details acquired during a long career of travel. Details that make me a nightmare for a large pack like you."
With its three-sided perimeter zip, this backpack unfolds completely, offering optimal packing organization. Whether it's an impromptu adventure requiring an overnight kit or a day in NYC with a rain jacket, snacks, and your trusty Leica camera, you'll always be prepared.
The side bottle pocket mimics our convenient duffle "dump slot" for the airport security line, while the detachable interior pouch keeps your charger, cables, and AirPods neatly organized and easily accessible. You'll find space for a MacBook inside, or in a hidden folio slip pocket at the back, offering extra security in the city.
"The Ace" is your ace in the hole, combining functionality, style, and Liam Neeson-level preparedness.
We sweat the details so you don't have to.

"The attention to detail is superb. Quality is top-notch. Exceeded all my expectations. Please keep designing more stuff."
I've been following and acquiring Discommon items over the last 3 years because they are all really well made and there's something very special in the way everything is designed.
This is the perfect complement to the Weekend bag and I can now take a flamethrower to my nasty ass Nike backpack of old.
Got the grey one to go with all the other stuff, and it's everything you need for a day anywhere. Functional, spacious, not enormous and beautiful.
Thanks Neil and the team. Looking forward to the next thing
Such a great backpack! You can see that a lot of thought goes into every detail. Finishing is excellent, everything is just as needed. Sizing is just as good, perfect for my daily use. Almost makes me want to buy a second one just to keep as a spare ;)
The most classy back pack I've ever seen! Robust and smooth! I love it!
Having followed Neil and his creative design and production process for many years I couldn't resist adding his latest release - 'The Ace' in a gorgeous Caramel colour. The bag is made of sumptuous leather and the attention to detail is astonishing. It is extremely well thought out in design; for example it has a sleeve for laptops for easy airport access along with another compartment on the side for wallets, keys, etc. Absolutely love it. Thanks Discommon!
