Stolt / Shop / Podium Backpack Black

Ultimate small commuter bag

Pack smart with the Podium. This backpack might be small but it fits all the essential items you need for your active commuter lifestyle. A padded and secure laptop pocket carries devices up to 15” whilst an expandable compartment stores shoes and bigger items. Keep a change of clothes neatly packed in a built-in garment sleeve, with room for small personal items inside and within waist strap pockets on access on the move.

Carry it three ways

The Stolt Podium can be carried in three different styles making it the most versatile commuter bag on the market. Go classic backpack on the move, switch it up to a business briefcase or keep it casual with a removable shoulder strap. The choice is yours. The hide-away strap mechanism means you can convert your bag in seconds; perfect for work, commuting or a night out on the town.

Where tech meets style

The ergonomic design of the Podium small commuter bag is a commuter’s dream. With our innovative 3-way shield fabric treatment, this water repellent backpack combats rain, sweat and odour. Keeping your belongings clean and dry no matter the weather. With the hide-away strap system it transforms from a technical running backpack into an office bag or suitcase. Plus it’s lightweight material with padded back mesh makes it super comfortable to move with.


What is the difference between Stolt Alpha and Stolt Podium?

Stolt Alpha is our original design, perfect for both daily use and overnight business trips with a capacity of 20 litres (25 litres when using the expandable compartment). Podium is classified more as a day pack that fits your daily essentials. It’s a small commuter bag with a 10 litre capacity (expanding to 13 litres) and some additional features including our ‘3 way carry system’ meaning that it can be carried as a backpack, briefcase or a shoulder bag. The Stolt Podium also has its own internal built-in sleeve that fits a shirt and trousers. Please note that the garment box doesn’t fit inside Stolt Podium.

What makes the Podium the best small commuter backpack?

All Stolt bags are designed for active professionals. But the Podium is the best small rucksack for commuters who only need a bag for day to day life. Its compact size makes it light and comfortable to run, bike or walk with, whilst still having enough space to store all your necessities.

Padded, adjustable straps ensure optimum comfort, with padded mesh back panels that provide airflow on hot days. Our signature anti-microbial material combats sweat, rain and odour meaning your bag stays fresher for longer. You’ll also receive a gym bag with the same treatment, keeping any smells from your sports kit at bay.
