The Dux

Especially when they’re being used for school. Most teachers incorporate tablets into curriculum these days from kindergarten to college. STM Bags now offers The Dux, which combines military-grade protection against drops, scratches and dinged corners with a sleek design that saves battery life and protects the screen when not in use.
