I have been looking for the most perfect bag to carry my Microsoft Surface Pro 2 and extra gear along. Not too big and not too small, but with the right amount space and compartments. Well…the STM Velo 2 Small does seem to fit the bill. I have reviewed the Crumpler Moderate Embarrassment laptop bag a few days ago and this STM Velo 2 bag will give you a different experience. I will be looking at 11 inch bags soon to compare the usable space for the Surface pro 2 and its accessories. However, I am very impressed with the STM Velo 2 small laptop shoulder bag and this is why…..

The STM Velo 2 small bag arrived by UPS in another shipping bag protected with another clear plastic bag inside against any stains.

STM Velo 2 Small Messenger Bag (13 inch)

The STM Velo 2 small laptop shoulder bag comes in three different colors:

  • Black
  • Grey (Sample I received)
  • Blue

The materials used on the outside are the 300D velocity poly which feels very strong and durable. The inside lining has a different bright color which makes it easy to find your gear. The inside lining is made from a 200D water resistant polyester. The weight of the bag empty is only 2.4 pounds (1.1 Kg) and holds your Microsoft Surface Pro 2, your Surface 2 and a mini tablet and all it’s gear you need in the extra compartments (see video)

Below are some of the features

  • Main flap secured with two quick release buckles and interior zippered compartment for further security
  • Zippered option to slip over a luggage handle
  • Unique side-entry, fully padded and lined laptop compartment
  • Waist strap to stabilise the load for a longer journey
  • Comfortable and adjustable shoulder strap and padded back panel
  • Dedicated soft lined tablet section
  • Front organisation pocket for all your accessories, phone, cords, cards, etc.
  • Side pockets for water bottles/umbrella
  • Sall hit of reflective to prevent any unexpected hits
  • Designed to fit most 13″ laptops


The STM Velo 2 small laptop shoulder bag is cheaper compared the Crumpler bag I reviewed earlier and you can get it with Free Prime shipping on Amazon for $100 If you want to go for the medium sized Velo 2 (15 inch) you will pay the same price as well. But I really like this 13 inched sized STM bag.

You can see many of the detailed pictures on the STM Velo 2 Small Laptop shoulder bag page, I have made a video showing you why I really like to have this bag be my companion on my travels with the Microsoft Surface Pro 2. The easy access of the multiple great sizable compartments makes this bag ideal to store away your accessories and find them with ease.
