Matador Travel Equipment, the producer of performance travel equipment, introduced its Speed Stash, a “universal” backpack strap that attaches to any backpack with a sternum strap, even if unbuckled. 

“The Speed Stash is one of the most universally useful products we’ve launched yet,” said Chris Clearman, founder and CEO. “It provides quick access to your phone, snacks, camera, or anything else you like to keep on hand. While we recommend pairing it with a Matador backpack, it works well with any backpack with a sternum strap, adding quick access for the most critical items.” 

The Matador Speed Stash incorporates locking bars to trap a pack’s sternum strap for a secure attachment, providing convenient front access for frequently used items. Made from Bluesign-approved fabric, the Speed Stash features a Powermesh elastic front pocket for easy access and a zippered main compartment designed to fit most cell phones, passports and GPS devices.
