STM Goods was born in 1998 when Ethan Nyholm resourcefully slipped his new laptop into a padded postal envelope for protection while carrying it around in his hiking pack. From here he teamed up with co-worker Adina Jacobs to create products specifically designed to protect digital gear while offering a fashion-forward look. The latest offering from STM, the Myth is a bag that has both style and substance. the Myth was brought to life,. Available in three attractive designs: Granite Black, Windsor Wine and Slate Blue, it features  Slingtech protection- a dedicated laptop pocket. This pocket has extra padding and gapless corners that suspend your device away from the edge of the bag, isolating it from the bump zones and protecting it when you set it down onto the ground whilst the super soft lining prevents any scratches.

The CableReady system means you can charge on the move with wires kept out of sight by allowing cables  to pass through the bag sections, neatly routing the cable from device to spare battery whilst keeping the bag interior cable tangle free. There is a clip in the front pocket for attaching keys for instant access. The lip that covers the zip access for the front pocket gives the bag a streamlined finish however it can collect unwanted dirt, sand for example, which you then need to shake out before opening the zip and letting it drop into the pocket. There is an AirPod pocket and earbud keeper, so you know exactly where your gear is when you need it, as well as a luggage pass through on the back of the pack, comfortable TPU-coated webbing carry handles with rivets for durability, water-repellent C6DWR coating Reverse coil zippers protect teeth to keep out moisture and dirt and a fleece-lined sunglasses pocket. There is an AR app and scan system that aims to provide interactive 3D graphics, animations and videos, but as we couldn’t get the scanner to recognise the tag we can’t comment on this feature. The shoulder straps are generously padded and so too are the air channel back panels, along with the chest strap this keeps things comfortable over long periods of wear, whilst allowing air to circulate around your back. This compact bag (17.7’’ H x 11.4’’ D x 5.9’’ W) is lightweight (1kg empty) and holds it shape well, its sleek design will appeal to the fashion conscious whilst the hordes of pockets and that protective Slingtech pocket will ensure your gear remains protected and organised whilst on the move.
