Finding the perfect bag for travel can be a challenge.
Too big and it becomes cumbersome and heavy to lug around, but if it is too small you cannot carry everything you need.
In the past, when the kids were younger, we relied on backpacks for all the paraphernalia you need when leaving the house with small children, however, now they are older I am after something a little more stylish.
Gaston Luga is a Swedish backpack retailer located in the heart of Stockholm and they have a beautiful selection of back packs for every occasion.
I have to admit that I fell in love with their bags straight away and they reminded me of a top quality, old fashioned school satchel in their design.
The exterior is minimalist and elegant, yet there are many functional features including a pocket at the back of the backpack which has been specially designed for things needed to be easily accessible yet kept safe (i.e. passport, cash).
Each backpack is also equipped with an inner tablet/laptop compartment, making it a good choice for work and travel.
I have to admit it was a struggle choosing with design I wanted as I had two favourites, but in the end I opted for the largest of their range: the Pråper.
It is the perfect bag for travelling as has a lovely and roomy interior, a strong, rugged build and the innovative adjustable hooks provide extra-secure closure – my kids still cannot figure out how to open it.
I have used it for a few weeks now and it is the perfect size for me. I have managed to hide some cheeky Christmas present purchases inside and it has even managed to store all the goodies from a visit to see Father Christmas!
The Pråper backpack comes in four colourways and costs £109, plus there is currently a free travel bag offer running with any purchase (whilst stocks last). The next bag on my wishlist is the classic!!
Gaston Luga have offered my readers a 15% discount on their next purchase. Simply enter CHELSEAMAMMA at the checkout, plus there is free delivery and returns.
Which bag would you most like to find under the Christmas Tree?
