Sometimes you have a lot of things to carry in your pockets, but not enough to warrant a full backpack. On those days, I prefer to simplify my life by carrying a sling bag and avoiding the impulsive need to fill up space. The Sling Bag becomes the midpoint to conveniently carry your essentials around without feeling weighed down by them.
When I travel, they are a must for me. Combining them with the backpack makes the perfect combo. I use the backpack as a carry-on, but as soon as I get to the hotel, that's where it stays. I take my shoulder sling bag for getting out of town hands free while exploring the place or just checking my phone. Especially, on those hot days when the last thing you want is a sweaty back from wearing a backpack.
The best part, they are becoming more and more fashionable. Long gone are the boring fanny packs my grandfather would use as his daily accessory. Now they are much more stylish, giving it an urban and modern style that catches the eye and makes a statement. Would you dare to use it as an office bag? It's sure to get people talking; it has for me.
For those looking for a fashionable daily carry accessory, I designed our Fenek Sling Bag. It allows going light taking everything they need while traveling or commuting. The first design I made was a bit more compact, but at a client's request, I added a few inches of height to fit devices up to 11". He spent most of his day walking between meeting rooms; a sling bag to carry his iPad plus accessories was key to creating his portable office.
I wanted a bag that was true to the versatility concept. I designed it with a detachable tab with velcro all around that divides the interior. You can configure it with one big compartment or two medium to fit your everyday needs. Carry anything from an 11" device, headphones, power bank, and notebook. For the young professional on the go, to an X100 and speedlight for traveling photographers.
It has a single strap with a fastener to enjoy multiple carry alternatives, including crossbody across the back or chest, around the waist, on the shoulder, or by hand. Plus, the option to conceal it and transform it into a vertical handle. How do you prefer to use it?
Accessibility is the number one feature. Reaching your belongings without taking the backpack off. Our Fenek Leather Sling Pack features dual access to the main compartment and an easy access back pocket for a phone, wallet, cards, and keys. Just swing it around and get items out of the various compartments.
