Well thought out design

Looks great with very practical features, for example the magnetic fidlock being used only where appropriate and the elastic band used to hold sling strap slack in place. Main compartment snugly fits iPad Pro 12.9 + Logitech K380 keyboard. Would have appreciated a horizontal Apple Pencil holder instead of the two vertical pen holders in a pocket that is not deep enough.

This is perfect.

I was looking for a small sling that would hold my MacBook and a few other things and this is exactly that. I can put the essentials for my Mac and my standard daily carry stuff and have room if I need to put some other things in. My only complaint is I wish the pouch could seal with a zipper since I worry about water getting around the top flap when it’s full.

I have a Alpha Sling bag but was struggling to get my everyday things to fit, but now o can with the XL. Both bags are extremely well made with solid materials and feel comfortable when carrying

Heart pump bag

I have recently had surgery for a heart pump. The external portions: 2 very large batteries, the controller and misc items easily fit in there. If I really want to pack it full my 13 inch laptop will fit. It might be a niche market but it is way better than the LVAD (heart pump bag I originally got from the manufacturer. Nurses and doctors constantly comment and ask about it

Great for keeping your Tablet / Items with you

I like the Sling bag features with their Clasps and overall versatile way for putting items into the bag. The bag is the right size to have with you on your side. Not bulky and slim enough to carry my Tablet and also my small notebook and other items needed. Has pockets thru out that is helpful for easy reach.

*5 STARS for the Alpha Sling XL!*

I received my bag and started using it everyday for work. It works great and holds all of my essentials and is easy to access anything out of it while not being bulky when full. This bag was designed with great thought and offers maximum comfortably when worn. I am absolutely happy with my purchase and highly recommend!

Great bag

This is a great compact bag to carry my 11 inch laptop while commuting to work. I wanted something small to carry. Been using it for 2 months and the quality is good.

I bought this sling and was pleasantly surprised by its convenience and quality. Alpaka is always known for quality but this has become my EDC. It has enough space to hold my stuff and it is comfortable to wear all day. What would you expect from Alpaka? Only the best in bags!!!

Prefect Bag for My Apple Devices

MacBook 13” or iPad 11” or both at the same time! They fit perfectly in this bag, with room for wires & plugs too. The bag is so comfortable to wear mid back and is light yet strong. Rain proof too.

Great bag! Now have a pair of small and XL to use.

Bought the small one from Indegogo and was very happy with it. Good material and easy magnetic lock. Decided to get an XL one to bring my laptop out sometime. Keep it up!

Bag of all Bags

This bag fits exactly where I want, it mid back, for mainly walking but cycling too. It is smaller than I thought but everything fits, MacBook Pro 13” & iPad Pro 11” and at the same time. There is so much space for documents & wires. Epic bag I am so happy with it. Super quick delivery too. 5 stars from me.

Surprised my boyfriend and he loves it!

My boyfriend hasn’t used it yet due to social distancing and working from home, but the bag is a perfect size for commuting and travel. Thanks ALPAKA!

I love it!

It's very convenient, I love using is as my daily bag to go anywhere!

Nice case

I really like the feel of the case. I have to use small cases for small items so they don't fall out, not a problem. I added a strap between the two connectors so I could easily pick up the case and put it on the handle of my roller bag when I didn't want to carry the alpaca.

A good bag to carry your IPAD PRO 12.9 inch

This bag is a perfect fit for my IPAD PRO plus some essentials such as a mouse, usb-c dongle, ssd drives, headphones and charger. Great for days you need to carry around your IPAD PRO. The only con is no extra space to carry my Sony A6400 camera. But you can squeeze an Action Camera or Sony RX100 into the bag.

Perfect Sling to carry your IPAD PRO 12.9"

Whenever I need to carry my IPAD PRO this sling is the perfect go-to bag. Not too bulky and enough space to fit accessories such as a dongle or power charger.

Better size

I had the regular Alpha Sling via Kickstarter, which was good (and probably has better design proportions), but does not fit my new Microsoft Surface Pro 7. This bag works for that computer! Also fits my Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 and Sony WH1000XM3 headphones.
