We find and research the best backpacks from brands that deliver exceptional value by selling their products direct to consumer.
First, we determine the brands of backpacks that meet our definition of direct to consumer.
Next, we choose the best brands that offer the most value by delivering (1) the lowest prices to consumers, or (2) premium benefits for standard prices, or (3) both. It’s rare to find brands that deliver both the lowest prices and the most benefits, but we do occasionally find them!
If you know of any outstanding backpacks sold directly to consumers and delivering low prices, premium benefits, or both, please tell us about them! You can use our Suggest a Brand form here or drop us a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The No Middleman Project exists because we want to eliminate the unnecessary middleman, not add another one. That’s why we don’t sell products on our site, and we don’t take any commission or cut of product sales.
Instead, we focus on serving as an information source for consumers: we find the best direct to consumer backpacks and connect you directly with the brand(s). Then we get out of the way!
Our mission and business model are the opposite of today’s dominant online and offline retailers, and the dominant search engines and ad networks who are now positioned as powerful middlemen, taking a cut from product sales (directly or indirectly).
NoMiddleman’s entire purpose is to connect you with the best backpacks and not impact the cost of the transaction in any significant way. We want to help brands keep their costs low, so they can continue to pass value through to you, in the form of lower prices or higher quality!
