Great sling for everyday comute and travel. The rolling access will be your expansion for jackets and so on. Main access through some (very) tough and waterproof YKK zippers.
Material makes you feel like you can paraglide through a hellstorm strapped only on one side.
Don't buy if you are hoping for a comprehensive bag for your 16" laptop and your small fortune of cables.
Buy it for every thing else.
It is a beautiful sling that I wish had a second strap to be a backpack. Materials are excellent as is the look but it is heavy when packed with about ten pounds of daily commuting gear (including a laptop) and I won't use it for longer walks much preferring a backpack style in those instances.
Great size and the only one that has two external pockets for drinks or umbrellas. Fantastic
Bought this primarily to use as a personal item on flights with the option of using it as a daypack at my destination. Also plan to use it for the gym.
Some youtube reviews show that this can fit a 14” laptop fairly easily. I tried it with a 14” MacBook Pro which slipped in there pretty easily, and the laptop required a bit of alignment to remove. Specs say it is 8.7” deep. The iPad Pro Magic Keyboard case is 9” deep, which unfortunately is about the same size as the opening. Was a considerable struggle to remove my iPad + case (took a couple minutes to make sure nothing got damaged) and I wouldn’t try it again.
Luckily, the big elastic pocket in the main compartment fits my iPad with keyboard case easily. Not ideal considering there’s a dedicated laptop compartment, but this pocket is suspended to protect your device.
I purchased the active sling pack some weeks ago and it was delivered within 3 work-days. I use the backpack nearly every day and I´m really happy with it. It fits all the different things I need during the day easily and it´s still comfortable and fits well even when I go by bike. Concluding it´s a really good and comfortable Sling-Backpack and I would recommend buying it.
