STM Bags Compass
The folks over at STM Bags have done it again, rolling out a new canvas laptop bag designed to appeal to women. Available in extra small and small sizes—perfect for an 11” MacBook Air or 13” Air or Pro, respectively—Compass ($100) has a secret hidden inside: in addition to the full oversized purse-like bag, it includes a removable computer sleeve. This isn’t some cheap neoprene afterthought, either, but a heavy duty, well-designed sleeve that could certainly be used on its own.
Compass is pretty large, with the 13” model measuring in at 14” x 21.9” x 5.5”—enough room for all the stuff you may need to carry around on a daily basis. Undo the Velcro and zipper on the front, and you’ll find more pockets than you’ll initially know what to do with, including another zippered compartment. Inside the main cavity are dedicated spots for the sleeve, an iPad, and spots for books and the like. The only potential problem we see is that the straps are pretty short: they’re designed to fit over your shoulder, and will, but you’ll need to decide whether the bag hangs as low as you’d like, or would benefit from an padded arm strap.
