About Us

about us

Founded in 1998 just outside Sydney, Australia in the famous suburb of Bondi Beach, our mission was, and still remains; to come up with a more comfortable, secure and stylish means of transporting your digital gear. Today, STM makes a variety of laptop bags, packs, fitted tablet and phone cases. All designed to make life a bit more worry free.

You could say bubble wrap doesn't really cut it. 
Trying somehow to conceal the fact that he worked in the IT Department was a bit of daunting task for STM's co-founder. A sea of boring black bags that screamed, "I work for the Man." was not really helping. The solution of the laptop wrapped in bubble wrap and tucked into a hiking pack resulted in the classic "There's got to be a better way!" The rest, as they say is history.

You could say we’re a focused lot. 
Our mission is to come up with a more comfortable, secure and stylish means of transporting your digital gear.  We sweat the details almost to an absurd level.  This level of focus, we hope, makes us very good at what we do.

You could also say we’re a motley crew. 
We get that a lot. Founded in Sydney, Australia with offices in Poway, CA, the UK and Shanghai, China, chances are no matter what time zone you live in, someone from STM is always working on the next perfect bag, or enjoying happy hour.

No matter what you say, we can take it.
We are always looking for your feedback. Let us know what you’d like in your next bag. We’d love to hear from you.
