Stow Organizer: First Impressions

I bought the Native Union Stow Tech Organizer after I lost my Stow Lite at Heathrow Airport on a recent trip to Singapore. I used the Inateck Tech Bag as an interim bag, which was nice to use but pretty bland to look at. The Stow Lite I before I was a little small, but it did look good. Its triangular shape made it difficult to hold larger items. The Stow is a bigger version, and if you are happy with the bulk a significant improvement.

Design

The Stow Organizer looks great, I love the looks and the colour. And the front has a two tone texture blending into an external pocket that looks great. I think it looks a lot smarter than the pencil case design of my old one and will look a lot better on my desk. 

Organisation

Native Union Stow Organizer Intermals Review

Inside if you want to organise your items, there’s one zippered pocket that’s quite tight so only thin items will fit. There are two elastic pockets and three bands, so there’s a few options for storage. With a lot of space in the middle for larger items too. Much better to fit items like a foldable keyboard, or a couple of SSD’s when travelling. There is a pen or stylus loop as well, but my tablet case holds my stylus for me so I have never used this. This may be handy for some though.

Usage

I’ve been using it for a few weeks now since it arrived and it’s great. I do find I’m not using the organisation pockets as much as intended, instead putting everything in the middle. Although the zippered pocket is great for my SD cards and ensuring they have protection

In testing only one of the three bands is big enough to fit my SSD’s, but both the elastic and zippered pockets do so you can always store them in there instead. The zips allow you to open the bag entirely making it a lot easier to view and find the contents. Of course you have to pick the time and place to do this otherwise it will all spill out over the floor. 

Stow Organizer: Final Thoughts

I think whether the Stow or Stow Lite is best is going to come down to personal preference. For myself, I’d go with the Stow. I prefer the rigid design, and the larger capacity. Not to mention the fact that I think it looks better too. I can put my bigger items in without having to work out how it’s gonna fit. But others are gonna have a lot smaller or less tech, and the Stow Lite is going to be absolutely perfect. Although they are on the more expensive side there isn’t a huge amount between the prices. So the biggest factor between the two is how you intend to use it.
