Stubble and Co The Backpack 5

Stubble & Co is a British brand that has been on a mission to produce tough, durable and highly functional bags for all types of travel, from holidays to hiking, shopping to the gym whilst upholding their ethical and sustainable practices by using recycled plastics, offering in-house repair services and offsetting their transportation carbon footprint.

The Backpack arrived in 100% recyclable packaging, we received the beautiful Olive design, it is also available in All Black or Pirate a soft grey colour. It comes in its own draw string bag that can be used for storage or a handy separate bag in its own right, this bag measures up at 31w x 49h x 14d cm, it is super light at just 1kg and has a 21lt capacity. The Backpack is an all-new design from Stubble and Co, it is 25% bigger than the popular The Daypack, it is constructed from British Millerain Tekwax canvas providing a water-resistant finish, it has a minimalist design with all the bits you need and nothing you don’t, the canvas is robust but maintains a good amount of flexibility. There are two side pockets big enough to house a 500ml water bottle or umbrella, as well as smaller zip access pocket, perfect for storing things you might need to grab in a hurry, sunglasses, travel cards, snacks for example.

The main compartment is accessed via a metal G clip, it can be a little fiddly at first, but this is also handy for an extra level of security. There is a drawstring closure under the cover for flexible storage, the black lining looks good but doesn’t make it that easy to find things in the bottom of the bag, there is a protective 16” laptop compartment with a popper to keep it in place. There is an inner zip pocket for storing valuables. Back on the outside there is a grab handle on the top, and the flexible ergonomically designed straps that have a good amount of padding and mesh design for ventilation, this mesh and padding extends to the entire back panel to ensure a comfortable ride even when it’s fully packed. The Backpack achieves everything it set out to do, it is wonderfully practical and has a timeless look that will be at home on holiday or on the commute, it is built to last so it can join you on plenty of adventures for years to come.
