STM Bags Laptop Backpacks…
I was truly blown away by STM and all that they offer, if you don’t know about them, you totally should get in the know!
About STM Bags:
Founded in 1998 just outside Sydney, Australia in the famous suburb of Bondi Beach, our mission was, and still remains; to come up with a more comfortable, secure and stylish means of transporting your digital gear. Today, STM makes a variety of laptop bags, laptop backpacks, fitted tablet and phone cases. All designed to make life a bit more worry free. We don’t use wasteful stuffing. All of our products are shipped in biodegradable plastic bags, and we use minimal product packaging. We take great pride in our ongoing “Born to Be Green” corporate sustainability programs.
Gear That Travels With You.
Since I travel and travel often, I was always on the search for the perfect carrier for my technology. When I travel I usually have my laptop, camera, tablets and smartphone with me. Not to mention, that includes my agenda, important documents, pens and tons of cables.
Of course, it is all depending on the length of the trip and the nature of it. While I have a purse tote for my laptop, I have to say it’s more stylish than functional and it doesn’t fit everything that I need it to.
Let’s Try It.
While I was in town in Toronto for TBEX this May, I had the chance to meet the wonderful people behind STM Bags. I was super stoked when they wanted me to review some of their awesome gear since I was seeking accessibility, functionality and style. Something that was all-in-one and that can help me to carry my gear safely. And above all, something that both my husband and I could share, just as we share our love for gadgets.
The Impulse Medium Laptop Backpack.
It is the one.
What I love the most is that the Impulse is lightweight, it has a sternum strap so that it stabilizes your load and that it has a luggage pass through for our luggage. The straps are very heavy duty and are very strong yet comfortable. The main compartment holds my 15′ inch laptop, my Samsung tablet and Mimi’s iPad.
While the second pocket holds my planner and any other important papers and pens and business cards. For the price tag of $100, you really can’t go wrong. It makes a perfect carry-on for short trips too. The best part is that it is made to fit up to a 15’inch laptop and it fits like a glove.
Balance and Style.
When my wife introduced me to STM Bags, I was blown away. I was also super happy that there’s a bag out there for us tech/gadget lovers that both the ladies and gents can use and LOVE. I like the feel of the sternum strap, when the bag is fully loaded, I like the feel that it’s balancing against my body and since there is a lot of padding the back, it doesn’t feel heavy at all. The straps are wide and don’t hurt my shoulders. I can’t wait to take this baby out for a full-ride trip, airport and all. STM Bags are great and the cable wraps are a heaven send. -Dara
