BackPack Review with Discount Code: Gaston Luga Classic Backpack

Over the June school holidays, I had a no car day with my boys once a week and I brought them out via the public transport! I was anxious in the beginning - I am used to bringing a small bag and leave all the necessary like diapers, extra clothings, umbrella, raincoat etc in the car. We can always go back to the car to get them right? But when we had our no car days, gosh! I didn't know how I should pack and what I should bring! We had a total of 5 car free days in June and I used 5 different bags (bigger, smaller, backpack, sling bag, tote bag etc!) and over-bring and under-bring many items!! 

The experiences made me want to look for a new backpack! I am a mom of two active boys and we love going outdoors for fun and exploring! Backpack is the most convenient because I will be able to bring most of what we need, and I can still carry Little Brother easily whenever he needs. 

And so while I was browsing online for a new bag, I received an email from Gaston Luga, a Swedish backpack retailer located in the heart of Stockholm, Sweden! I browsed their website and was totally blown away by the style of their bags! 

I was totally in love with their bags! (images from Gaston Luga Instagram)

Their backpacks are uniquely designed to fit any setting, no matter where you would go—whether you are sipping Mai Tai on a beach in Thailand, sailing the French Riveria, going to work or simply a weekend brunch with friends, the Clässic, Clässy and Pråper collections will suit and add to the occasion!

I wanted to work with them, but it took me many days to reply simply because I was browsing their site daily,  and couldn't make up my mind on which backpack I want because I love so many of them! In the end, i decided to get a bag from the Classic collection, because it has a pocket in front specially designed for things needed to be easily accessible. I am a mom.. I NEED that pocket! ;p

Having narrow down my choice to this Classic Collection, I then couldn't make up my mind on which colour to get between this 4 colours that I really love! 

In the end, the very pragmatic me choose to go with the Classic - Black & Black backpack instead. It is easy to maintain, and it will tear my heart apart if I accidentally dirtied the bag (you know how things are when we go out with the kids), so black is the best!! 

I was then amazed by the speed of delivery of the backpack by Gaston Luga, all the way from Stockholm in Sweden to my house! They used DHL Express and I actually received the bag in a time, shorter than the days I took to choose the bag I want! Haha! 

Now, let me flaunt my new backpack!! 

I love how the bag is light yet sturdy, small yet roomy, plain yet stylish, basic yet luxurious! Most importantly, I love how the bag looks good on everyone of us! Yes! I am the type of mom that likes the family to help out, so everyone in the family will help to carry the outing bag! 

I am totally in love with my all black Gaston Luga backpack! Because it's black, i can put it on the ground!

Here's me with the stylish bag, we were having a fun day out at Universal Studios Singapore!

The bag is unisex, and it looks good on Hubby too!

In fact, even Big Brother can help us with the bag and it doesn't look out of place!

On top of the minimalistic and elegant exterior, the backpack has many functional features which made it extremely practical. 

The spacious front pocket allows me to keep things that are needed to be easily accessible

Top: The backpack is also equipped with an inner compartment which can hold a 13-15" laptop with ease
Bottom: There is another two small pockets for holding phone or a power bank

The bag may look small, but it's extremely roomy inside
On the back, the unique Gaston Luga pocket for holding your passport, tickets or handphone, keep them safe yet easily accessible.
There is a keyring holder, which allows you to hang items to personalise your bag

Close up photos to share the workmanship and quality of the backpack:
  • The backpack is made of thick and strong cotton fabric for durability. 
  • The front leather straps are held by strong magnets for easy access. 
  • The inside is dressed with a 100% cotton fabric. 
  • Under the backpack are four metallic feet, giving the backpack extra protection and a cooler look.

So I kept saying the bag is roomy right? Let me show you what I put into my backpack!! You will be amazed because even I am amazed! 

From the front pocket: Wet wipes, tissue, a hand sanitizer and a solid perfume
(I happened to love green. LOL) 

Drum roll please....  Below are the things I put into the main compartment of the backpack! :D You can tell how pleased I am with the functionality and style of my new bag!! 

Must bring items (from left to right): My kids water bottles, my wallet & sunglass, a cap, my kids' raincoats & brolly, mosquito repellent, extra diapers, a portable fan, a expandable bag for my purchases, my camera and mobile phone!

More Information
Official Website:

Gaston Luga loved his elegantly custom-made piece. We understood the industry was lagging when it comes to what customers today want. Most products are designed with big fluffy shoulder pads, plastic materials and thin fabric, which brings thoughts back to the first day of school. It was important for Carl to create something he would wear himself and be proud of. The vision was to make a line with Scandinavian minimalism and elegance to suit all different occasions. As time went on, leather parts, thick quality cotton, metal details and a mix of carefully selected colors were put together and became the foundation of the new brand named after its predecessor, Gaston Luga.
