Recently, I have been using a sling bag, and not just any sling bag, but the OutdoorMaster Crossbody Sling Bag, the product you see above. The first thing I notice about the product is that, wow, I look good wearing that sling bag, and of course it’s not the first I’ve owned, so I appreciate how an outdoor, convenient product can be so stylish.
I have started using the sling bag when going outdoors, traveling to a friend’s place, while carrying all my valuable items. It stays on easily when I run or use my roommate’s bike, and it also has a lot of versatility on what I can bring with me whenever I need to go outdoors.
It’s not like I can carry a briefcase with a bunch of papers, all my student’s folders, and a projector in the sling bag, but as a runner, I usually wear shorts that don’t have pockets. I usually have to carry my phone around somewhat obnoxiously, but as the photo shows, there’s a pocket to put your phone that mitigates the inconvenience.
A strap on the sling bag reminds us of our best backpacks, and can be a good fit for our bodies as we run, bike, or run. A sunglasses compartment also accompanies the backpack strap, and the backpack has four different pockets that you can use: two smaller ones I can barely fit my hand into, one meant to put phones and other electronics and accessories, and a big pocket where I can easily fit books, my laptop, and everything in between.
My girlfriend commented that her laptop, being much bigger than mine, wouldn’t fit into the compartment. It’s clear that it can hold so much without falling apart. It’s a new product that I haven’t used that much, so I can’t speak to its durability, but it’s worked well for me so far when I’ve bought books to read at the park or to go to the store.
The sling bag is genuinely a jack of all trades. It can fit many items while fitting well, being stylish, and light for camping trips, your daily walk, or going to a friend’s place. It’s not meant to hold all your hiking supplies, but for a day’s trip, it holds all your necessary items without restraining you on the way. I would recommend this functional sling bag to all of my friends and loan it to them for their excursions into the outdoors. A sling bag of this quality is usually a lot more expensive than $33, its current sale price, and I would recommend it to anyone I come across.
The one drawback, I would say, is the size of the water bottle holder. I don’t normally carry a water bottle for me, so it’s not an issue, but the holder is just too small, even when loosened to its utmost degree. I tried putting a bigger water bottle into it and it wouldn’t fit into the holder, so be wary of trying to put a water bottle into the big compartment and getting everything wet.
OutdoorMaster, founded in 2015, is about to have its five-year anniversary of its launch, so now’s the time when you’re quarantined at home with the outdoors as your only form of escape to get solid ski goggles, sling bags, tents, and helmets for the outdoors at a reduced 20–30% rate.
A much bigger hiking backpack is not much more expensive and can suit other needs for more arduous treks, and the sling bag comes in a variety of different colors. The polyester bag has almost universal five-star reviews, with some reviewers’ only problem that wearing it for long periods of time is not comfortable — but with this sling bag as much as any, it’s essential to switch shoulders once in a while.
Currently, my girlfriend and I are looking to go on a camping trip as it’s one of few leisure activities we have during this pandemic. We’re currently looking at tents at OutdoorMaster, and, of course, I’m going to bring this the sling bag.
