Finding a bag you can use for outdoor hobbies that is also built to protect your tech gear can be hard. Most technical bags offer little in the way of extra padding and thoughtful design for devices like laptops, smartphones and tablets.

The $99.95 STM Haven backpack (, which fits most 15-inch screens, blends Air Channel Comfort padding and a chest strap on the exterior with CableReady Organization, SlingTech Protection and pockets for a balance between performance and design.

SlingTech keeps tech gadgets safely suspended inside the bag so even if your drop it, your gear won¹t hit the ground while CableReady Organization lets you wind cords from power banks inside the bag through interior pockets where your devices are stashed for easy, tangle-free charging on the go. 

The STM Haven has water resistant fabric, an internal fleece-lined sunglasses pocket, an internal document sleeve for paperwork, a stretch bottle pocket, a front overflow pocket for quick storage, and an elastic power pocket for stowing your laptop’s charging brick and cord. Its air mesh harness and channeled back system offers comfort and ventilation over the long haul. And an adjustable sternum strap helps lighten your load.
