Choose it in black or blue to match your rucksack.
Out at all hours? A high visibility rain cover will keep you and your bag safe in the dark, whilst your belongings stay perfectly dry. Wondering where to store your gym kit? Don’t sweat it – there’s a specialist laundry bag just for that, with anti-microbial material to keep any odours contained.
Rucksacks with laptop compartments

How to choose a running backpack
When it comes to picking the best running backpack, you may be overwhelmed by the number of options. From lightweight packs to substantial rucksacks, there’s a whole bunch of different styles to suit different needs. If you’re not sure where to begin, start by considering the below all-important factors that impact the quality of a running backpack.
It all starts with the straps. In order to run comfortably, you’ll need a bag with a snug fit to avoid too much movement. This will stop your shoulders from screaming after a day on the tracks.
Consider the mileage
Where are you heading? If you’re a long-distance runner or off on an ultramarathon, you’re going to need different supplies to a city commuter. Will you need room for a full clothes change, electronics or smart shoes? If so, a running backpack with a laptop compartment such as the Alpha is a must. If you’re swapping to shirt and tie after a casual jog, then the smaller sized Podium will suit you just fine.
Similarly, if you’re heading out after dark, you’ll need a Stolt hi-vis cover to keep you visible. It’ll also add an extra layer of protection to your bag incase of a storm, so there’s that too.
A ventilation system
Unless you’re running in the middle of winter, you’re going to get a little sweaty. And whilst backpacks unavoidably cause a bit of back sweat, there are models that help to limit the inevitable.
The best runners backpacks are designed with mesh back padding to keep air circulating as you go. All Stolt designs combine this with innovative anti-microbial technology that stops sweat from soaking inside and keeps your backpack smelling fresher for longer.
Work worthy design
Running backpacks typically have most of what you need to get from A to B. But it can be hard to find one that’s also suitable for the office. If you’re running to work on the regular, you’ll need a backpack with a laptop compartment but also one that measures up to your boss’s bag.
For this reason, Stolt backpacks were born. Our minimalistic designs and functional features combine everything you need from shoe storage and garment sleeves to a gym bag to store your workout gear.
The best running backpacks
Whether you’re pounding the pavement or trekking a trail, a running backpack is a must-have accessory for when you’re on the go.
We’re not boasting when we say Stolt backpacks are the best in the business. Designed for professionals, athletes and city workers, our award-winning range enables you to commute (and run) in stylish comfort.
Padded straps and ventilated back panels are guaranteed – as is our signature anti-microbial material to ward off water and sweat. But you’ll also benefit from space to store your clothes crease-free, whether in an in-built garment sleeve or separate box. Plus there’s the hide-away handles to turn your backpack into a fresh, functional design.
