Just like my MESSENGER BACKPACKS, my SLING BAGS are made based on my experience working as a messenger, and balance long-term durability, ease of repair, water-resistance, and cost.
Every bag comes with all the features a messenger bag should have. I do not make basic bags and charge for extras and add-ons - everything below is included by default. Extra charges will only apply for special colours or custom requests.
This is a single-strap bag meant to worn high and snug over the shoulder. The strap can be quickly loosened, so the bag can be swung around to the front for easy access.
The large main compartment is tarp-lined and just has a two bottle pockets at the back. There is also a unique velcro slip pocket at the along the front of the bag which is a perfect place for tools. A front 3D pocket has it's own small closure flap and has some organization pockets for smaller items.
Three cargo straps allow for a variety of cargo-strapping or overloading and two compression straps on the bottom allow the bag to be compressed to a more convenient size when it isn't full.
A key feature is the reversible shoulder strap - the bag can easily be swapped for the left or right shoulder.
