Stolt Alpha is our original design and it has a capacity of 20 litres (25 litres when using the expandable compartment). Stolt Podium is a smaller version of Alpha (10 litre capacity expanding to 13 litres) with some additional features such as our ‘3 way carry’ meaning that the bag can be carried as a backpack, briefcase or a shoulder bag.
Where Alpha serves you even on an over-night business trip, Podium is classified more as a day pack that fits your daily essentials.
Our garment box is designed for Stolt Alpha to carry more clothes whereas Stolt Podium has an internal built-in sleeve to fit a shirt and trousers. The garment box doesn’t fit inside Stolt Podium.
All Alpha bags have the same renowned design. The difference is aesthetic.
All business backpacks have a very subtle embroidery logo whereas the casual bags have our signature woven logo label. And for special projects we’ve developed different colourways and branding.
Our business sets include either Stolt Alpha backpack or Stolt Podium backpack and all the accessories we’ve developed for each product. They are the complete sets that will take you through your busy days.
