The STM Banks Laptop Backpack is the best place to keep your cache. It’s where to deposit your laptop, withdraw your files, and handle a host of other daily transactions. Roomy and handsome, it fits your storage and style needs equally. When it comes to choosing the right backpack, this one’s money.
The STM Banks Laptop Backpack looks like a backpack for walkers but is built like one for an office job. The outside is a desert brown, with flashes of blue for the tags on the zips. It features 3 sections, two at the top and then one on the front.
STM Bags Banks 15″ Laptop Backpack
The first section is for your 15″ laptop. STM uses their SlingTech, which features extra padding and gapless corners that suspend your device away from the edge of the bag, isolating it from the bump zone.
The second section is your “bits” section. The padded sleeve will fit most 13″ devices and there is a top pocket for your delicate devices. Though as its soft, I wouldn’t recommend anything like sunglasses. Space will fill up pretty quickly, especially if you are using the laptop section.
The third section is at the front. This has a couple of pockets for any smaller devices. There is also a “Stash Bag”, which comes on a tether. This is great for any spare cables or pens. Outside are two side pockets for water bottles or umbrellas.
Something which I think any bag should have is cable management. The STM Banks backpack has that, using a feature called “Cableready”. There is a pocket for a battery charger, with a hook for the cable. Each section mentioned then features a hole for this cable to go through. So with say an Anker battery, you could charge multiple devices.
The backpack uses a standard two-strap system, each one is adjustable. There is also a clip to attach them across your chest. There is also a handle at the top allowing you to grab and go if your train is about to leave.
The whole backpack feels tough and ready for a beating. The material feels durable and well made. Inside its as soft as cotton, which is perfect for your devices.
This doesn’t feel like an office backpack for me. Even the grey colour which features orange zip tags feels casual. This is made for the techy who likes to travel.
The STM Banks Laptop Backpack is minimal and sleek. It offers enough space and features for all your tech needs, without feeling like some huge backpack. Finally, check out our other lifestyle reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
