MacRumors Giveaway: Win a MOS Pack Backpack With Built-In Power Strip

For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with MOS to give away three of its MOS Pack backpacks. The MOS Pack, which got its start on Kickstarter, features a built-in MOS Reach power strip and cable management system that allows devices stored inside to be charged using a single cord and without removing any items from the backpack.

The MOS Pack can accommodate a MacBook (up to 15 inches), an iPhone, and an iPad all at once, with each one plugging into the power strip, which is equipped with a standard port for charging a MacBook and two USB charging ports.

Inside the MOS Pack, cords are threaded through cable management sleeves to keep them hidden from sight, while the power strip is tucked away in a special compartment and held in place with magnets. The MOS Pack has a padded laptop sleeve, tablet sleeve, iPhone pocket, waterproof water bottle pocket, passport pocket, a padded case for glasses, and slots for pens, pencils, and other accessories.

Available in Onyx and Slate, the MOS Pack is made from rugged nylon, with nylon infused rubber at the bottom. It has a rigid (but soft) back and foam-padded straps for comfort. While it looks slim, the MOS Pack has a 20-liter storage capacity. The MOS Pack is available for $149.95, but MOS is offering MacRumors readers a 20 percent discount.

Three MacRumors readers will also have a chance to win a MOS Pack through our giveaway. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address. Email addresses will be used solely for contact purposes to reach the winner and send the prize.

that would get pretty hot in there


Hey this is Jared from MOS.

You are right that electronics tend to give off heat, but we have made the REACH pocket on the side of the PACK so it acts as a vent to let out hot air. We've found it works effectively to keep the internal PACK temperature at safe operating temperatures.

"waterproof water bottle pocket"

If there is one thing that shouldn't need to be waterproof it would be a pocket dedicated to a water bottle. One would imagine that a water bottle would be, you know, waterproof...


(this is Cameron from MOS) haha-- that's kind of hilarious. I think we didn't message this appropriately-- we meant to communicate that the water pocket would hold virtually all moisture in if there's a waterbottle leak. We tested putting a few cups of water in the pocket and sloshed it around a bunch (OK we did a lot of other water tests too). A tiny bit of moisture was able to seep through, but in the case of an accident, we were confident that this pocket would protect your gadgets very well.

Don't bother MOS is a third rate company that uses substandard materials and methods that fall apart and their customer service is anything but.

Ordered 4 reach cables (basically what is in this pack) they fall apart leaving exposed circuits, boards, and other electrical innards. They issued a recall over there sonic welding from the manufacturer-and customer service wouldn't exchange without exchanging emails/photos/a great deal of lube and bending over.

Save yourself the trouble. Look elsewhere.


Aldaris-- This is Cameron from MOS. I'm sorry to hear about the hassle of sending in an image of your broken units. If I recall correctly, we required this instead of asking for the units to be returned in the mail. Our impression was that we required significantly less than a typical brand would require for an exchange or refund by simply asking for an image, but please let me know if there's more to this story because we of course want to improve our system in any way possible.

Also, if there's still anything a miss with your MOS order, please contact service [at] mosorganizer dot com and we'll make it right!
