Laptop bags offer the highest level of protection for laptop and netbooks and their are a great number of styles and designs to suit any taste. Amongst the more informal styles is the messenger style bag and the STM Scout laptop bag fits the bill as a smart/casual style of laptop bag.
The STM Scout Laptop Bag we reviewed was designed to house laptops with up to a 13" screen size (although both 11" and 15" sizes are available) and was the olive coloured version. Like most messenger style bags the bag is closed with a large flap with an adjustable fastener and the bag provides a heavily padded felt lined laptop compartment (with a separate velcro fastened lid) and a separate document compartment. On the front of the main compartments is a good sized zipped pocket and two further utility pockets, one containing a detachable key fob and the other providing stationary storage.
The entire bag is manufactured in 14oz water resistant canvas and lined with water resistant nylon and the combination of these materials give the bag a very solid feel. The should strap of the bag is also easily adjusted to accomodate any wearer and the padding is incredibly well designed so as to minimise the stress to the wearer.
Priced at ~£35 (at the time of writing) we felt that the STM Scout laptop bag represents excellent value for money, with a solid design and offering excellent protection for any suitable laptop.
