Ever since the pandemic, I've pretty much been doing all of my work from home (it helps having a large iMac to work with). However, there are occasional times when I need to be somewhere other than home and still work, so I'll take a MacBook Pro with me while out-and-about. For those moments, I usually grab one of my Tom Bihn backpacks because of all the organizational pockets for my tech accessories.
But what if I could simplify my setup even further when it comes to hauling around all of those cables, batteries, power adapters, hubs, and more? I mean, my backpack has plenty of pockets to store my things, but it can be a hassle to remember which compartment my cables or power bricks are in, especially if I'm carrying a lot of stuff. And what if I'm not even bringing a laptop with me, and just wanting to spend an entire day at Disneyland? I still need some external battery packs and cables with me to make it through the day.
Enter the Dapper Wrapper from STM Goods. This is a simple tech pouch with multiple compartments for all of your tech, and then some. Whether you're planning to work away from home, at the office, or just going to be at a theme park for the day, the Dapper Wrapper helps keep all of your tech accessories neatly in tow.
STM Dapper Wrapper: Price and availability
The STM Goods Dapper Wrapper is available at retailers like Amazon and Office Depot, as well as directly from the STM Goods website. It retails for $30, but you can occasionally find it with a discount at certain retailers. The Dapper Wrapper comes in four colors: Black, Granite Black (gray), Slate Blue, and Windsor Wine.
STM Dapper Wrapper: Simple and efficient organization
The Dapper Wrapper is more than just a cute name. This is an essential tech pouch that keeps your cables and other tech accessories neat and tidy. STM made the Dapper Wrapper with an environmentally-friendly 100% polyester fabric that is coated with C6DWR, which is an advanced water repellent solution. So the exterior of the Dapper Wrapper is water and dirt repellent — meaning that even with tons of use, the Dapper Wrapper will still look brand new.
You have four color choices with the Dapper Wrapper, and they're all fairly neutral colors, besides the Windsor Wine, I think. I received the Slate Blue color, which is my personal favorite.
Even though this is technically a "pouch," it doesn't quite look like one. Instead, the Dapper Wrapper folds up three times, and there are a total of 10 compartments on the interior. When it is fully open, it measures 5.7-by-10.2-by-0.4 inches, and it has a starting weight of just 0.15 pounds. It's similar to a women's clutch in size. As far as pockets go, you get two stretchy mesh compartments on the outermost flap, two elastic pockets in the next section, then five smaller elastic pockets, and finally a zippered pocket at the end.
With a nice variety of different storage options, the Dapper Wrapper can hold pretty much anything you need it to, whether that's Lightning cables, chargers, external battery packs, USB-C hubs, wireless mice, AirPods, and more. Heck, it can even hold travel essentials like toiletries if you need it to — it's incredibly versatile.
Once you have your Dapper Wrapper packed, it simply folds to close. To keep everything nice and secure, there is a strap on the outside that can be adjusted to hold what you have in there. For example, if you packed in a thicker charger, it may feel like it's flopping around — just make the strap tighter and it's all good. The Dapper Wrapper has a slick magnetic closure that is easy enough to close but also gives you quick access to your cables when needed.
I've been using the Dapper Wrapper for the past several weeks, and it has become one of my favorite organizational products. It provides enough compartments for pretty much all of the things I need for my devices, and it folds up neatly into a portable size that is easy to stow away in a bag or backpack. I also like the fabric and colors, as it still looks new despite heavy use. The price point is also very reasonable, which is another strong draw.
STM Dapper Wrapper: It may end up looking bulky
Honestly, there isn't much I don't like about the Dapper Wrapper. I suppose if I had to nitpick, the Wrapper can feel a little bulky if you have larger chargers or battery packs in the two mesh pockets, which also make it not as flat as I'd like it to be.
The smaller compartments on the inner half of the Dapper Wrapper are also not as useful, at least for my kit. Some may find it handy for super short cables or something similar, but I don't have too many of those that I rely on frequently.
STM Dapper Wrapper: Competition
There are plenty of tech pouches out there to choose from, so STM's Dapper Wrapper certainly isn't the only one. For example, there is the Waterfield Designs Tech Folio Plus (along with the smaller Tech Folio and Tech Pocket). This can actually hold all of your cables and other accessories, as well as your favorite iPad or best MacBook. However, the price point for the Tech Folio Plus is north of $100, making it significantly more expensive than the Dapper Wrapper. Even the smallest Tech Pocket starts at $49, which is still more than STM. But the Tech Folio is great if you want an all-in-one kind of solution.
STM Dapper Wrapper: Should you buy it?
You should buy this if ...
- You tote along a lot of cables and accessories daily
- You value organization and efficiency
- You like a great value
You shouldn't buy this if...
- You don't need to carry a ton of accessories with you
- You need something smaller
- You want to carry your MacBook or iPad too
The STM Dapper Wrapper is one of my favorite little products these days. It looks incredibly simple on the surface, but it gives you a ton of organization and efficiency when it comes to storing your tech cables and accessories. Despite the slim appearance, you can fit a ton of stuff in here, and it folds down into a compact size that fits into most bags. The magnetic closure is also very intuitive and secure, and you can adjust the strap according to your needs. Plus, you really can't beat that price — it's affordable for everyone and oh so useful.
However, if you don't tend to carry a lot with you, especially things like cables and power adapters, then the Dapper Wrapper may not be for you. And if you were looking for an accessory bag that can also carry your iPad or MacBook, well, this won't do — the Dapper Wrapper is meant as a complement to your existing bag.
Bottom line: The Dapper Wrapper is a slick little tech pouch with plenty of compartments for your accessories and gear. The magnetic closure keeps everything safe and secure.
