Best commuting backpack for runners and cyclists

Developed exclusively for the community of cyclists and runners,  we are extremely proud of our new design. The Athlete commuting backpack follows our sleek, minimalistic aesthetics and delivers on performance and beyond.

The latest technologies in backpack manufacturing

It all starts with ergonomics and the best materials. For us that means perfectly balanced weight distribution and a smooth airflow on the back panel so your back doesn’t get sweaty. This commuting backpack is made of recycled 500d polyester and has both water resistant and anti-microbial treatment to combat rain, sweat and odour. We call it a 3-way shield.

Optimal user experience with smart design features 

This roll-top commuting backpack expands based on what you carry. It has a separate business compartment for your laptop and other electronics and hide-away straps for when you don’t need them. The straps can be perfectly adjusted for optimal carry and the waist strap is detachable so you can also use it as a running belt.

What makes Stolt Athlete different to other Stolt designs?

Stolt Athlete is our only roll top design.It has a detachable waist strap that can be used as a running belt and the shoulder straps have extra adjustability to fit many frames. Size wise Stolt Athlete sits between Stolt Alpha and Stolt Podium. It also has water bottle pockets on both sides.

Similar to Alpha it has a separate business compartment for laptop and other valuables. It also has the unique Stolt hideaway strap mechanism as well as our signature 3-way shield on the fabrics to combat rain, sweat and odours.

What makes the Athlete the best commuter backpack for running and cycling?

Stolt cycling and running backpacks for commuting are the perfect combination of a practical sport bag and smart business accessory. Designed by a team of active commuters, we’ve added every essential feature you need to navigate the city without compromising on style.

The Athlete is a light-weight, comfortable backpack with padded mesh panels and shoulder straps. It won’t budge whilst you move – and neither will your clothes, snugly stored in a separate garment box to keep them wrinkle-free. The addition of a padded laptop compartment and our innovative water and sweat repellent material really does make this the best running commuter backpack.
