Delighted with my new Mini Roll Top rucksack. Great design and quality, perfect for my daily commute by bike. When I did have an issue with it, the response from S&C was quick and the outcome very satisfactory. So a really good product backed up with excellent customer service.
Dominic hailed Stubble & Co as a company and highlighted The Roll Top’s durability.
I’ve used several Stubble & Co bags over the last year – the Weekender, Rolltop, and Adventure – and they’ve all been fantastic! The Rolltop has been my go-to for cycling to work, and it’s kept my work stuff dry through torrential rain. The separate laptop sleeve and bright orange lining are a nice touch, and all the bags still look brand new. Stubble & Co definitely knows how to make quality bags!
Leigh shared a story to highlight the great customer service.
I’ve owned a Roll Top for around 6 months and absolutely loved it. The quality is fantastic. However the bag developed a tear at the top. I emailed them and Sarah replied within 10 minutes and had already arranged for a replacement to be sent out to me the next day. Absolutely brilliant service and I’ll definitely be purchasing from them in the future.
I was sent The Roll Top to review and I was impressed with the rucksack.
I primarily wanted to use the bag to store clothing, technology and personal items for travelling. With two dogs, I needed space for some of their essentials too.
Having previously reviewed a number of versatile rucksacks, I was attracted to The Roll Top thanks to the stylish design and the g-hook closure.
I wasn’t disappointed. I loved that The Roll Top has one large compartment that has plenty of space to store clothing and shoes. It makes life simple when you’re looking for something.
Inside the main compartment, there are a number of small compartments/sleeves so you can store personal effects, keys, cards, pens etc.
There’s a laptop so you can still get some work done if you’re living the office-free life and need to check in every so often.
Having used the bag in rainy and windy conditions, the Roll Top passed the weather test with ease.
