Some people simply prefer a shoulder sling, while other people find this uncomfortable and awkward to carry. In front of these dividers is an open space that’s perfect for larger objects like your phone. Aer Day Sling 2 Main Zipper Pocket FullThere’s also a key clip here, but it’s plastic—and even if it was metal, we prefer to keep our keys in the front for quick access anyway . Two lash tabs on the front of the sling allow you to clip items to it, though you’ll obviously want to avoid anything large or bulky.
Additionally, it will make a great secondary carry-on bag for travel purposes to make your devices and travel necessities easier to access. Usually there isn’t a middle ground when it comes to personal opinion, so don’t feel bad if you’re just not amazed by the Aer Day Sling 2 for whatever reason. Now, youcould spend a fat chunk of $$$ on the WRONG present for someone. Wrong size hiking boots, wrong fit backpack, wrong shape sleeping bag… As any adventurer will tell you, gear is a personal choice.
It’s actually impressive how organization friendly the Day Sling 2 is for such a small bag. Aer Day Sling 2 Main Sleeve FullAt the front of the Aer Day Sling 2’s main compartment, there is a zippered pocket that is ideal for holding coins and other smaller items. If you’re at all unsure about how to carry the Aer Day Sling 2, we’re happy to clear it up for you.
For many of Aer’s backpacks, the organization can sometimes be excessive and redundant for some. There is just the right amount of organization in the City Sling. On the opposite end, two equal-sized slots take up the entire width. The slot can fit up to the height of something like the NOMAD Powerpack before you start having difficulties zipping up the compartment. The organization of the main compartment is also basic, with a full-width slot along the back of the compartment. YKK zippers are a given in modern packs these days.The City Sling comes in either Cordura Ballistic Nylon or X-Pac or a gray eco-dyed polyester variant.

Generally, this has been a pleasure to use when I have taken it out with the family. I also am a big fan of the updated patterning of this version over the original Travel Sling, which was overall a more boxy design. This almost feels like a scaled-up version of the Day Sling, and the bag feels well-proportioned overall.
As a sling, it’s designed to be carried across your body, either on your back or front. It can not be worn as a hip belt and it isn’t designed to be used as one. Once you’ve got that down, the overall carry of the Aer Day Sling 2 is comfortable and the length of the strap is easily adjustable so you can have it sitting as high or as low as you’d like. We’ve had nothing but positive experiences with all three of these components.
I really like the organization provide by the Day, but unfortunately since it’s such a slim bag, you really can’t fit much in here outside of similarly slim items. Feel around the outside and you’ll find that Aer has fitted the City Sling 2 with a hidden back pocket for stashing valuable essentials such as wallets and passports. One of the best aspects of the City Sling 2, though, is that it sports a zippered front pocket with a built-in lanyard.
