Backpacks are great work-travel companion that will allow you to carry your day to day essentials in style and comfort. Whether it is far, near, urban or outdoors, you will need a backpack that is comfortable and lightweight to carry around all day without breaking your back. Besides being comfortable and lightweight,  a backpack should also be stylish enough to make you feel attractive and confident at every occasion.

About a month ago, Gaston Luga contacted me to offer me a backpack of my choice so that I can introduce their products to my readers. For anyone who have not heard of the brand, Gaston Luga is a Swedish backpack retailer from Stockholm, Sweden and has recently entered the Singapore and Malaysia market. The company was founded by Carl Sundqvist with a vision to create a backpack that is different from the regular school style. He wanted a elegant minimalist backpack that is perfect for all different occasions.

Gaston Luga offers 3 different designs for both men and women to choose from: Classic, Praper and Classy. All 3 designs comes in a variety of colors, as well as more office appropriate black and navy. I have an extremely hard time choosing which one to get because the designs and colors are all so damn gorgeous.

After browsing through its website, I finally decided to choose the Praper bag in pink and black design. Pink and black are just the perfect color combination. The vibrant color and design would be just perfect for a plain outfit and makes you stand out from the crowds.

Bold, elegant, minimalist and stylish, the backpack will fits every outfit perfectly and is suitable for most outdoor activities. The color pink is soft and ultra feminine while the color black is dark and sophisticated. When the two are put together, it create a great contrast and style.

Shipping was extremely fast. I received the backpack from DHL Express in just 3 days after I placed my order. The backpack comes with a dust bag for storage and protection, keeping it clean and dust-free.

Great in style and looks, it is made from a combination of high quality leather, metal and thick canvas. The backpack features a full leather flap with expendable metal hook closure that will ensure the safety of your valuables. There are a total of four hook closures, which will provide the backpack extra height whenever needed.

On the front of the backpack, there is a metal key ring holder for you to hook a keychain or leather address tag, which has to be purchased separately. The leather address tag is available in 10 different colors, so you can mix and match to complete your own unique backpack.

The backpack has one large main compartment, which will provide ample space inside that will hold your essentials safe. Within the main compartment, there is a padded slot that is big enough for a 13-15 inch laptop. Other than that, it also comes with two smaller pockets for your phone and other small accessories.

Made from thick cotton canvas fabric, the backpack is highly durable, versatile and long-lasting. It comes with adjustable shoulder straps, so it can be altered to your desired fit.

On the back of the backpack, there is a special pocket where you can keep your passport, flight and train ticket. The pocket allows you to access to your passport and tickets easily. Besides passport and tickets, the pocket fits my Samsung Note 4 phone perfectly as well, keeping it safe from pick pockets.

At the bottom of the backpack, there are four metallic feet, providing extra protection and a cooler look.

However, one downside of the backpack is the weight. The thickness and quality of the canvas and leather makes the backpack much more heavier than many other backpack, which makes it not so ideal for travelling or everyday use.

The Praper bag currently retails at SGD 319. It is a little pricey but the material is excellent. For all my readers, you can use my code 'elinchow15' to get 15% off your order on Gaston Luga website. Apart from the 15% discount, you will also enjoy free shipping with DHL Express and 20% off tax rebate (from non-EU country only).

No monetary compensation was received for this review and all opinions expressed were my own. Thank you Guston Luga for sending me this gorgeous backpack!
