Review of the STM Bags Impulse Medium Laptop Backpack
We at HomeGear.com believe a great laptop backpack for daily usage should have certain features. For example, it should have a protective compartment for the laptop. It should be lightweight and have space for carrying miscellaneous items such as books, water bottle, umbrella, keys, charger, etc. It should have organizational order inside the bag so you do not need to wonder where to stow your items, or where you did stow them. It should be comfortable to wear and have some water resistance to protect your sensitive electronics in case of rain or dropping into a puddle for a moment.
The STM Bags Impulse Laptop Backpack accomplishes many of these requirements in a cool-looking design. It is light st 2.2 pounds. It has ample space inside each of its compartments. The gray bag we reviewed looks gorgeous, feels comfortable and durable in hand and on your back. It is made from water-resistant polyester.
It has a storage pocket in the front convenient for quickly dropping in smaller items. Above that is a zipper pocket that features an organizational panel with key strap, and a zippered pocket inside. On each side of the bag are two pockets for storing a water bottle or umbrella. One of these side pockets is zippered.
A padded compartment for a 15-inch laptop is located in the middle of the bag to give your laptop or tablet the most protection. Another padded pocket is for a tablet up to 11-inches in size. Both the tablet and laptop pockets feature fleece lining with thick cushioning. The laptop and tablet holder both have some cushioning at the bottom, which helps protect your stowed device in case you drop the bag and it lands on its bottom.
The last compartment to describe is a larger zipper pocket on the back part of the bag. It gives plenty of room and depth for storage, so you can carry some large magazines, for example. This compartment also has a document pocket.
The Impulse Laptop Backpack is quite comfortable to carry. It has an air channel down the back for good breathability. The back panel and straps are heavily padded and adjustable.
It has an adjustable sternum strap that is attached to each of the main padded straps. This not only increases carrying comfort, it also reduces bag movement as you run or jump.
The Impulse Laptop Backpack comes in two different colors: Black, and Gray. Regarding construction, the bag is well built. The zippers are strong. They open and close easily. The fabric stitching is strong enough to hold against repeated stresses and look as if they will not fail easily.
