Everything started when a team of product designers realised they could re-engineer the standard wallet. I love these bags especially the Pacsafe Venturesafe X Anti-theft sling pack. Water resistant and the anti-theft pocket is two attributes on the top of my list.
This is absolutely ideal for this type of bag, and while it does have some trade offs, they are well worth it for keeping the bag low profile, and your goods from rattling around. While the Bellroy Venture Sling is undoubtedly a very good sling, it won’t be for everyone. It does have a large footprint, and if you’re smaller, it may be too big for you even in its compressed form. As you can see from the photos, it spans almost the whole width of my body.
Well, the 3L will give you enough room for the small number of things you need to keep on your person — like your phone, wallet/ID, a protein bar, etc. And it doesn’t hurt that it was meticulously and brilliantly designed, meaning it looks as good as it functions. With an 8 liter capacity, it also has a bit more storage space than the Aer Day Sling 2. In terms of durability, the sling bags are fairly equal, although the YKK zippers on the Aer Day Pack 2 are a bit higher quality and less likely to snag than the zippers on the Red Rock Rover. Now that you’ve read about the details of the Aer Day Sling 2, you might be wondering how it measures up to other sling bags on the market. Here are a few of the other best sling bags which might fit your travel style or intended use a bit better than the Aer Day Sling 2.
If you’ve been waiting around for something a little more streetwear- and technical-focused, the wait is finally over. Crafted from a triple-layer waterproof textile — and equipped with water-resistant zippers — the TKS is ready to take on any adventure, rain or shine. But it also has numerous other impressive details you can’t really find anywhere else. That includes things like interlocking zipper pulls , a Fidlock V-buckle, a phone pocket with a charging pass-thru, and a unique internal organization scheme. If you can afford it, this is a tough bag to beat at any price.
Free yourself up for adventure, with this small sling that keeps your essentials in reach, and out of your pockets. When it’s just wallet and some other flat stuff it seems to hold pretty well. Discussion about backpacks, onebag, one bagging, travel, packing, and EDC. Bellroy’s diminutive Sling satchel is up to the task of carrying your essential items in any setting, helping you leave your large, bulky backpack at home. However, it could be a little too small and little too expensive for some.
Since the bag is so small, it can fit into a variety of settings, whether you’re an international traveler, university student, or city commuter. If you’re going sightseeing for an afternoon, it will probably be enough to carry your gear, but obviously it’s too small to be your sole travel bag. Aer has divided the Day Sling 2 into three compartments; one main compartment, a smaller front pocket, and a hidden back pocket for your passport or valuables.
Through a simple strap mechanism, the bag’s full volume is collapsed down by the simple act of wearing it. The more full the Sling, the less cinching the straps can do, but it takes care of itself. All you do is pack and put it on, and the combination of the bag’s weight and the way it’s worn ensures it’s at its minimum possible volume for the given load. I’ve found this to be true of the MAAP x Shift as well, which I’ve been using for much longer.
