If you’re looking to carry multiple things at once without the hassle of juggling them on the go, or burying them into bulky pockets, then you will benefit from the ergonomically designed Bellroy Sling Bag. Unlike bum bags or fanny packs which are worn on the waist, these stylish and unobtrusive storage solutions seamlessly sling across the body, allowing you to tuck away items while still maintaining comfortable ease of access.
The Bellroy Sling Bag is a prime example – lithe and elegant at only 350 grams, but big enough for the essentials with a capacity of 7 litres. The clever inclusion of an expandable side gusset allows you to compress and expand the bag depending on how much you’re packing, furthermore self-compressing so that when you tighten it onto your body, the Bellroy Sling Bag adjusts and compresses to its fill.
The Bellroy Sling Bag’s slick design follows function, with heavy-duty venture-weave polyester used for the black and ink blue models, and soft-woven polyester used for the mid-grey. The soft nylon webbing straps help with comfort, along with the padded panelling including on the back of this environmentally certified leather pack. All materials used are water-resistant.
A magnetic clasp on the strap of the pack makes removal easy and effortless, allowing you to slip this pack on and off as you carry it on one of three ways – you can either wear the bag flush on your front, loose on your back, or just throw it over your shoulder when in a hurry.
What’s really neat about this bag is the centered strap position, precisely aligned along with the two-way zipping on the main compartment. This makes the sling easy to use left-handed, right-handed or ambidextrous, with consistent access to both the front compartment, which has a key clip, and the main compartment.
