The best travel accessories are the ones that last the longest and stay in great shape regardless of how much you use it, which means they’re durable, long-lasting, as well as protecting your goods in all types of weather. STM’s Myth 28L Backpack fits the bill. Don’t let its size fool you, as no one backpack size is better than another, but what matters most is that it’s proportional to your body.

Available in granite black, windsow wine, or slate blue colors, we opted for the latter, and right away, you’ll notice how smooth the 100% polyster material is to the touch. This backpack measures H 18.5″ x W 11.8″ x D 6.7″ and weighs in at 2.69 lbs completely empty, with more than enough room to store a 15″ laptop. Water repellent C6DWR coating applied to the fabric ensures that everything stays dry while reverse coil zippers protect teeth as well as keep moisture and grunge out. An internal fleece lined sunglasses pocket keeps your shades protected and TPU coated webbing handles with rivets can handle just about anything.

Want give your body a rest while rolling through the airport? Its PassPort luggage pass-through quickly connects your pack to other baggage items while also being integrated with the lumbar support of the back panel. What mobile warriors will appreciate the most is the CableReady system that lets you charge with the cords tucked securely out of sight, thanks to STM’s innovative AirPod pocket that offers easy access to your wireless headphones and an earbud keeper. Carrying a backpack all day can be tiring to say the least, and that’s why STM built an air channel back-panel-and-yoke system to wrap around you to provide improved weight distribution for maximum comfort.
For a backpack that combines function, style, and durability, there’s no better choice than the Myth 28L. Many travelers hate bringing suitcases for long trips, especially since if you’re traveling around the world, your luggage gets thrown about and is a pain to roll around. If you’re constantly moving and backpacking around the world, it’s far better to choose a proper bag, since they’re simply more versatile, easier to carry up flights of stairs, pack into tight places, and overall, make life easier.
