As technology continues to advance, our devices become more and more portable. And, as the portability of laptops and tablets progress, so do the designs of their cases and carrying bags.

STM has taken this design process a step further and engineered a backpack built for the technology inside.

The Drifter conceals two floating sleeves crafted for holding a laptop and tablet safely, making it ideal as a transitional bag from a weekday commute to a weekend excursion. If the Drifter is dropped, the floating electronics pockets will remain safely suspended inches above the ground.

Constructed with water-resistant fabric for the main body and reinforced bottom fabric, the Drifter maintains its durability without sacrificing style. The top loading design of the Drifter makes the bag easy to navigate through without dumping out all of the contents.

“The Drifter is a device-centric backpack built for any situation,” said Adam Ziegelman, Vice President of STM. “From the suspended laptop and tablet sleeves, to the fleece-lined pockets, to the form-fitting rainfly the Drifter is designed to safely transport technology.”

The Drifter from STM is available in graphite, olive, or red and retails for $149. For more information, visit:
