Smaller than you might think

I was surprised that the bag was a lot smaller then I thought from the look of the photos. Pretty cool that a 13” laptop can fit, but don’t plan to pack it up with a lot of stuff. This works perfectly for me since I don’t want to carry too much. The co my partners for security purposes will work, and the added SIM extractor actually works for my job. Feels like it’s made from quality materials and looks stylish. No regrets getting this bag.

Alpha Sling XL

I love my alpha sling xl for the iPad 12.9 inch pro. The iPad fits perfectly, however it’s a tight fit hight wise with the Magic Keyboard. It just needs to be a little higher to accommodate the iPad with the magic Keyboard. Everything g still did and it’s very compatible to carry. I would also like to see a little bit more room to carry a little more items. This is the only bag I found that is great for the iPad 12.9 inch. I just love it.

Very good. My Second purchase and One of the best case for my 12.9” iPad Pro, yet!!

Specs said it can fit a 13" macbook pro. I use it for my office laptop thinkpad which is 12.5" and a 11" notebook and laptop charger. I feel that it is small for both items, best solution I guess is to downsize my notebook to a smaller one. Overall- great product. Itching to buy a proper messenger bag.

Nice product

This is definitely a company who have put thought into their products, as this is the best sling-bag I've come across yet. Its not perfect, but it's pretty good.

Perfect size.

This is a perfect size for my new 13” laptop and other things. I have been looking for the right back and this was it, and it’s not cheaply made at all. This is a quality product at a great price!

Perfect to carry my iPad 12.9

I need to be able to carry my iPad 12.9 during the summer without carrying a big backpack. This is perfect to carry that and other everyday essentials! This is my 6th Alpaka item and I love them all!

Minimal Sling

Got this to replace a bucket bag I got from Japan! The construction is good! Looks very durable! However due to its durability, it could build up heat on the areas with is in contact with your body. For someone living in a tropical climate at about 28 to 34 degrees I find it bearable as I am used to the weather in my country. There are many features on this bag but I love how it is kept small but able to fit my EDC

Nice sleek and perfect for my iPad

Pretty sleek profile perfect for my iPad and 2 phones and wallet. Don’t fill it too much cause the cool sleekness will look bulgy and awkward looking , it’s meant for a couple items not a whole lot

Stylish and useful

Perfect for fitting everyday essentials while making a bit of a statement at the same time. Great materials make it a tough durable bag and the sleek look and colors make it stylish.

EDC + laptop bag!

Alpaka has pretty superior customer service tbh. I have contacted the team before and they were timely and understanding. Just got this bag in black to add a bold and classic edge to my edc. I've yet to find a company with a style like Alpaka's. It's where edc fashion and function meet as one!

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
