What to Keep in Mind when Choosing a Sling Bag
We believe that finding the a good quality sling bag can enhance your life exponentially. The perfect sling should be designed to help you out with things you hadn’t considered, and in ways you couldn’t have ever imagined! It sounds too good to be true we know, but if you put in the time and effort looking around for the sling bag that best suits your needs, and follow our handy tips below, the right sling bag for you will be just around the corner.
First and foremost, your sling bag should be designed with comfort in mind. If you are so lucky as to find the perfect sling bag for you, it will basically become an extension of yourself, taken with you everywhere you go, holding all your essentials on the daily. So, making sure it feels right for you, on your body is important. A lightweight design is always best, preferably with a comfortable strap that is easy to use and adjust.
We find that ones made of nylon work the best for this. You want a bag that both serves you and feels good for you, so our top tip would be to find a comfy sling.
Next thing to look out for when choosing the perfect sling bag is one that is secure. Your sling is likely going to hold some pretty important things, your phone, your devices, your credit cards, and so you need a sling that has the right kind of features that allow it to become a mini safe. We’re thinking a sling with anti-theft lockable zippers and RFID blocking compartments to protect your cards from potential skimming attacks.
With features such as these in a sling, you will not only be getting a high-quality product, but also peace of mind.
Now picture this, you think you’ve done it, you have found for yourself the Holy Grail of sling bags. You transfer all your essentials, your valuables, and you set out, fully equipped to deal with whatever life throws at you, when suddenly your bag breaks. Less than ideal. This is why we would personally recommend prioritizing a sling bag with durable features, designed to extend its lifespan, and endure alongside you, throughout the hustle and bustle of daily life.
With this in mind, we believe that no sling bag can be complete without, weatherproof fabrics, abrasion-resistant fabrics and waterproof zippers.
A cunningly designed modular sling bag can be home to a stunning array of features that you never knew you needed. Nowadays, you could be walking around with a sling that has MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment) webbing, the same kind of fabric used by NATO, allowing for an endless number of configurations for your sling.
Or what about something a bit simpler like an integrated key tether to help keep all your keys in one place? The possibilities really are endless. An interesting trend we have also noticed is the incorporation of technology into the design of bags, particularly sling bags.
It is not uncommon to find a sling bag with such features as external charging ports and hidden sim card holders, ensuring your online presence never falters even after you have left your house.
Hygiene is another feature that has recently taken on a far greater importance, and a clever sling bag will account for this also. It is now possible for you to own a sling bag with anti-microbial copper and silver lining that repels germs and keeps both you and your essentials safe and clean.
These high-tech options now exist to make your life easier and are definitely worth looking into.
