STM's 'The Drifter' is their most comfortable and durable backpack

STM, a company that was found in 1998 just outside of Sydney, Australia in the suburb of Bondi Beach is providing backpacks and bags to discerning customers all over the world. STM co-founder, Ethan Nyholm, struggled to find a bag that actually protected his new laptop while also uniquely complementing his casual lifestyle. He teamed up with co-worker Adina Jacobs to design the better, bolder laptop bag. The first STM bag was created: a backpack design that focused on protecting a digital device, and just as importantly didn't look like just any boring bag. The company mission is to provide Stuff That Matters for the doers of the world, a group they refer to as, Generation Do.
