STM Blazer Laptop Sleeve

A good laptop sleeve should protect your laptop, drop easily into another bag, and carry some essentials like a phone or a charging cable.

High density 8mm foam protects your laptop from bumps and drops, water resistant fabric ensures your tech stays dry and alive, the soft nylex lining surrounds your device keeping it polished and scratch free, a zippered external pocket for your tablet or other accessories, and a removable and adjustable shoulder strap for those longer trips.
