Our desire to select the best backpacks for you goes back a long way… but a project like ours cannot be made overnight, rather in 1001! We were only able to define our own selection criteria after a lot of travel and field testing. Some people think that a backpack is just for carrying things with you, which is not wrong. But we at Keus like practical, durable, innovative and beautiful objects. Just that ! Suddenly, we are looking for the little beast and in terms of mobility, we are not satisfied with a little.
From the start, Keus was built around values dear to Thomas & Marine, our co-founders: integrity, eco-sensitivity and creativity. Day after day, it is through all our actions within the company that we remain faithful to these principles. We hope you will feel these commitments as you navigate our site.
More than an online store, Keus aims to be a place of sharing where best practices and discoveries are exchanged. That's why we'll always be happy to chat with you. In just a few years, Keus has become the reference in terms of backpacks, thanks to you. For this, our entire team thanks you.

For you, the Keus team tests and selects the best backpacks ... in the world ! Our community of testers is made up of designers and engineers, artists and stylists, photographers and audiovisual technicians. The unique experience of each of our members allows our customers to benefit from a very rich know-how.
Our selection criteria are very rigorous: ergonomics and functionality, quality of assemblies and finishes, durability of the materials and accessories used. All our backpacks are extensively tested in the field, especially when hiking, traveling or on two-wheeled excursions.
We do not see the backpack as an accessory, but as a product that meets real needs. We carefully choose the brands that we represent, that we consider to be true partners.
Also, we are a certified reseller of the brands present on our site, which means that you benefit from the same guarantees as by going directly through the sites of the brands themselves.
We are committed to selling products that are manufactured under respectful and transparent working conditions, with a focus on eco-responsibility and with resistant materials.
In addition, several of our brands are also committed to the environment (North St. Gallen, for example, is part of the 1% for the Planet association), offer solutions for repairing their used products (as is the case, for example, with Sandqvist), guarantee their backpacks for life (as is the case with Mission Workshop, Sandqvist). is part of the 1% for the planet association), offer solutions for repairing their used products (as is the case with Sandqvist), guarantee their backpacks for life (like Mission Workshop, Chrome Industries, ILE...), or work with recycled materials (Ucon Acrobatics, Côte&Ciel...). Often on the bangs of "fast fashion", the brands we choose are committed to producing in a reasonable and responsible way.
For our shipments we work with a logistics platform located in the Maine & Loire department, a company that shares common values with ours and employs people with disabilities, integrating them into an appropriate professional environment. Last but not least, we use recycled cardboard for the various components of our packaging.
Our team is always ready to listen to your comments or suggestions, and will be happy to answer you.
