Product Review: STM Drifter Backpack

SmarterTravel

What Is it: The STM Drifter Laptop Backpack.

Price and Where to Buy: At the time of publication, the Drifter was on sale in certain colors on Amazon for $106.14.

Pros:

  • Unique interior suspended pockets protect your laptops and tablets if you drop the bag
  • 3D foam mesh back panel lets you carry heavy loads comfortably (and the air channel keeps your back from getting too sweaty)
  • Can be attached to rolling suitcase
  • Comes with a tuck-away rain cover to keep everything dry
  • Side pockets with compression straps keep your water bottle away from your electronics (and easily accessible)
  • Three different sized zippered pockets on the front keep everything organized
  • Very comfortable padded shoulder straps

Cons:

  • Slightly heavy (weighs 2.3 lbs when empty)

How it Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Who among us hasn’t dropped (or had knocked off a chair) our bag with our laptop in it? This bag protects your tech equipment like no other.
  • Value: 7/10. It’s pricey for a backpack, but if you can snag it at the sale price, it’s not too bad.
  • Durability: 10/10. Made from nylon and a water resistant fabric, this bag seems very durable, plus it will keep everything inside it safe.
  • Cool Factor: 10/10. We love the stylish design of this bag. It’s not nearly as bulky as many other backpacks, and it comes in great color choices.

Final Verdict: If you take your laptop and tablet with you while you travel, pack them in this bag to prevent tech disasters.
