The Stash+Stow Weekender backpack is the ideal companion for weekend adventures, whether heading off for a cosy family picnic, camping or living it up at a summer festival. Designed and manufactured with adventurous spirits in mind, the bag represents a natural progression for the Stash+Stow brand.

Originally conceived as an antidote to mixing and matching bags for everyday occasions, Stash+Stow founder Ashley saw a gap in the market for something new and innovative: a place to store all the essentials which are so often taken for granted during the hustle and bustle of busy modern living.

“I was commuting to and from the city, forever juggling different bags for different needs,” says Ashley. “This is where the idea to combine it all together into one bag came from. Somewhere for my laptop, gym kit, a change of shoes, my lunch, my water bottle…I wanted to make sure I never left anything behind, but didn’t feel weighted down, either.”

The Weekender backpack is crafted from faux leather for a vegan-friendly, gender neutral aesthetic. Convertible into a range of styles to suit the mood and occasion, it can be carried as a backpack, shoulder bag or pram bag, and includes not only plenty of room for all the essentials, but a USB charger port with a power bank, ensuring users can go off grid without losing access to their electronic devices.

Additional features include space to stow bottles, umbrellas, pens and even a yoga mat, so whether venturing into the wilds or just heading down to the gym, users will never lose track of the items they need. For added convenience, the Weekender backpack also has buggy clips as standard and even includes a designated space for storing sunglasses for those balmy summer days. 

The ideal combination of minimalism and multi-functionality, the Weekender is versatile enough to work for almost any occasion, making it a worthy investment for getting out and about following a lengthy lockdown.
