IF you’ve kept up with the old blog over the last couple months, I’ve been on the search for a Man Bag. Well, think I finally grabbed one up.
This is a STM Scout 2 that I picked up on Amazon for less than $10. One of the reasons that it’s so cheap it that it’s a discontinued model but at that price, I just couldn’t pass it up. It’s intended for 10 inch tablets but the tablet compartment fits a composition book perfectly. You see I don’t have a tablet, yet. Right now I cant justify the expense. About the only thing that I’d use it for gaming PDF’s. Every other function, I can do with my phone. So why spend the money on tablet?
Now if you do have a tablet, the bag is really nice. The compartment for tablet is really well padded like half an inch of heavy duty padding. The bag is pretty thin so if I do rip out that padding, I’ll add a bunch more space. According the manufacturer’s dimensions the bag is 2 inches thick. I measured the padding and there’s a total of about an inch. Part of me is debating whether just to rip that out. But part of me is saying, “You’ll void the warranty and what if you do get a tablet?”
So that’s just something that’ll probably bounce around inside my head for a couple of weeks. Still there’s plenty of room to carry around the essentials. Notebook, pens, emergency dice, harmonica, business cards, cables, ear buds, phone, and few other little odds and ends.
