Video Review: STM Goods DUX Backpack

A written review of a backpack just doesn’t do most bags justice. That said, the $249 STM DUX could be a contender for bag of the year over here at Knapsack. The backpack is spacious, attractive, and priced at just the right spot – under $400 – to make it a compelling alternative to a smaller suitcase or a similar piece from Knack or Timbuk2.

The back itself is designed like a camera bag. The large inner pocket has sections designed for easy modifications, meaning you can take out the velcro sections and stuff all of your stuff into one big area or separate things out like shoes, clothes, and gear. I’m not a huge fan of the DUX’s profile – it’s a bit bulbous for me – but if you like a structured bag I haven’t seen anything better.

The bag is available now and you can check out our quick video review below.
