why this product

Informed by daily treks across New York and Hong Kong, Stuart & Lau started with a singular premise - this backpack should never touch the ground. Everything should be within reach, easily accessed while it stays on your shoulders. With today's man on the move in mind, this felt like the perfect place to start building the better backpack. They studied his complete range of interactions with a backpack, optimizing the placement of pockets, sleeves, and zippers to foster a fluid and efficient experience. Easy entry into the interior is key, and to this effect, they opted for dual access through a top flap as well as a side zipper that opens the bag while it remains slung over one shoulder. For the man in motion, this is the perfect backpack.

use & care

Back by a lifetime guarantee and crafted from resilient DuraLite™ fabric and full grain leather — The Black Capstone Backpack is a durable and fuss-free solution built to be carried everyday. But if you have any questions about caring for your bag, the Stuart & Lau team is always standing by to help.

production & design

Aside from the perfect positioning of pockets, Stuart & Lau integrated the full wish list of features for today's mobile commuter: waterproof thermos or umbrella compartment, top loading laptop sleeve, add-a-bag strap for luggage, hidden stow pockets, microfiber linings that pull out to act as a screen wipe, cord and card organizers, and foam injected shoulder straps for complete carrying comfort.
