STM – Smarter than Most is an Australian company that manufactures laptop bags. In India, they sell their laptop bags online via Amazon. Today we are reviewing the STM Myth Laptop Brief. As the name suggests, this laptop bag is in the shape of a briefcase or can also be called a laptop messenger bag. Available in Blue and Granite Black colour, the Myth Laptop Brief we are reviewing here is Granite Black.
The Myth Laptop Brief 15 features a water-proof fabric material and rubber base. The bag has four sections, two large and two small. The large zipped compartment can be used to stow the laptop and the other compartment can be used to store a tablet or an iPad, e-book reader, phone chargers, cables and more. Since there are small pockets in the compartment, one can easily use them to store nifty things like Pens, USB sticks and more.
One thing about this bag that we appreciate is its weight. The Myth Laptop Brief is easily the lightest bag that we have come across that can store 15-inch sized laptops. This comes in handy when you are traveling by air as most of the airlines have strict policies for cabin luggage weight.
The main compartments of the bag are well padded and provide protection to the devices. The other two sections of the bag are on the front side and at the rear. These come in handy to store things that you would require to access quickly. However, one section at the rear does not have a zipper to close, hence this can be ideal for documents, notepads and others.
The Myth Laptop Brief 15 comes with an adjustable shoulder strap so you can lug it around or also hold it like a briefcase via its handle. The bag also features a luggage pass-through strap at the back which can be tucked in your luggage handle so that you can just stroll the same along with your luggage.
Priced at Rs. 5,034 on Amazon India, the Myth Laptop Brief is ideal for executives who want to carry their laptop or MacBook with few gadgets and limited paper stuff. However, if you are planning to use it as an overnight bag, look elsewhere. Having said that, if want a laptop bag that should last long, is waterproof and looks smart, the Myth Laptop Brief is an ideal purchase.
