Nothing greases the wheels of the morning commute like having the right bag to carry your work gear in. And in this day and age when you have an entire quiver of computers--from smartphone to tablet to netbook to laptop, you need a rugged, organized commuter pack to carry everything.
The STM Revolution is your latest go-to bag. The laptop backpack includes a concealed, suspended, plush-lined laptop compartment with protective foam padding to keep your computer protected through the crub drops, pot holes and sewer grates. To carry your favorite high-tech device, the bag also includes a separate iPad (or general tablet) sleeve in front that's spun from a soft nylex fabric designed to wipe the fingerprints right off your screen.
To store the other 101 tools of the workplace, the bag includes such provisions as shoulder strap pocket for your phone, two side pockets, compartments for pens, AC adapters, flash drives, etc., a quick-access front pocket and a main compartment for the books and other big gear. External featues include a stow-away rain cover, adjustable suspension system, foam back panel, sternum strap and tuck-away waist straps.
The Revolution laptop bag comes sized for both 13- and 15-inch laptops. It comes in orange and carbon and other colors for less than $100.
