Backpacks are a must-have for me when it comes to having to carry lots of stuff or when you are going out with your children and you really need to be as hands-free as possible. So I was searching for women’s backpack recommendation and the rest is history. Needless to say, I was thrilled to receive my Gaston Luga Clässic backpack in black, all the way from Stockholm. Please check out my unboxing video on Instagram!
Gaston Luga is a Swedish backpack retailer located in the heart of Stockholm, Sweden. Their backpacks have been crafted with the traveller’s needs in mind, and these little details are evident in every aspect of their design. My backpack of choice, The Clässic, is made with thick and strong cotton and faux leather for durability and better water resistance. I like the hardy material which makes it a great choice as a travel buddy. Even for a trip to the beach, I do not need to worry about stains because they can be easily cleaned off. Despite being made out of a strong cotton, the material does not add on much weight.
A drawstring opening brings you to the main compartment, which contains an inner 13-15″ laptop compartment. There is also an outer zipper pocket to keep other small belongings such as your mobile phone and power bank that are often used and have to be easily accessible.
On the back of the backpack is the unique Gaston Luga pocket for your passport, travel documents or other important belongings. This has got to be my favourite feature of the backpack because it is not only safe but also easily accessible.
The front leather straps are held by strong magnets for easy access. The inner lining is made with luxurious 100% cotton fabric. Under the backpack are four metallic feet, giving the backpack the extra protection and its cooler look.
I love the minimalistic design of this backpack, the good quality faux leather straps add a luxurious feel to the whole outlook. And being a unisex design, this means my husband could also share this with me. This is a very versatile backpack which I can foresee using it for travels, weekend outings and even to work as well. Black is a neutral colour so it will match with everything that I am wearing.
Even the dog finds it uber chic!
