Alpha: The All-in-One Travel Solution

  • Maximised Capacity: Pack more for longer trips, whether by air, rail, or road.
  • Organisation Made Easy: Multiple compartments, including a dedicated business section and shoe pocket, keep everything in its place.
  • Versatility Personified: Seamlessly transition from airport to office, or from train station to trail, with its professional yet adventure-ready design.

Why Stolt Backpacks Are a Cut Above the Rest

1. Designed for Movement

Ever tried running for a train or navigating a crowded airport with a badly designed backpack? Not fun, is it? Our backpacks are built with movement in mind. The ergonomic design distributes weight evenly, reducing strain on your back and shoulders. Plus, our innovative anti-microbial treatment keeps things fresh, even after a long day of travel.

2. Scandinavian Simplicity Meets Smart Design

We believe in the power of minimalism. Our backpacks boast a sleek Scandinavian design that looks just as good in the boardroom as it does in the boarding queue. But don’t let the simplicity fool you – these bags are packed with smart features for the active traveller.

3. Functional to the Core

From dedicated laptop compartments to expandable shoe pockets, our backpacks are full of surprises. Need to transition from a morning jog to a business meeting? Our hide-away strap system and crease-free garment storage have got you covered.

Beyond Air Travel: Stolt for Every Journey

While our backpacks excel as cabin bags, their versatility shines in all travel scenarios:

  • City Breaks: Navigate bustling streets and public transport with ease.
  • Business Trips: Keep your work essentials organised and wrinkle-free.
  • Active Commutes: Whether you’re cycling or running to work, arrive fresh and prepared.
  • Weekend Getaways: Pack efficiently for short trips without compromising on style.

Why Stolt Should Be Your Travel Buddy

At Stolt, we’re more than just bag makers – we’re problem solvers for active professionals. Whether you’re training for a marathon in a new city, cycling to a business meeting, or jetting off for a spontaneous weekend away, our backpacks are designed to keep up with your lifestyle. We’ve broken down the barriers between work and play, creating backpacks that support your ambitions, whatever they may be. With features like our innovative garment box (say goodbye to creased shirts!) and materials that stand up to the rigours of daily use, Stolt backpacks are your ticket to hassle-free travel.
