Thanks to its recent popularity as a fashion staple, you have more options than ever for a crossbody bag to EDC. Before, these handy slings were usually designed with a specific use case in mind: tactical, outdoors, or travel. Now, there's a new bag on the block that offers that extra bit of carry capacity you need that you can wear every day, on any occasion. Bellroy brings their signature minimalist yet functional design language to the trendy silhouette with their new Sling bag. Besides its versatile, understated styling, it's crammed with thoughtful organization, EDC-friendly features, and premium materials throughout that any discerning EDCer can appreciate.

When your EDC outgrows your pockets but isn't quite expansive enough to justify carrying a full-on backpack for the day, a sling bag shines as a stylish overflow solution. Bellroy's Sling delivers more than just style, offering a surprisingly spacious 7L of extra capacity via three well-organized compartments. Its quick-access front pocket features a high-visibility liner for easy identification of your most frequently used gear. Behind it is the sling's main compartment that does the heavy lifting. It features a gusseted design which compresses down for a low profile when you're packing light, but can expand to accommodate bulky items like a water bottle too. Inside that main compartment you'll also find an internal zippered pocket with a soft-touch lining, perfect for shades, glasses, or devices you don't want scratched up riding with the rest of your gear. Lastly, an integrated key leash keeps your keys safe and secure for easy retrieval.

Bellroy's also given the Sling the same premium materials and fit and finish as their other bag offerings. This includes a water-resistant Venture-weave polyester exterior to protect against inclement weather paired with a Fidlock magnetic buckle to always ensure secure closure while still allowing ease of access. Smooth, pliable nylon seatbelt webbing wears comfortably and avoids abrading clothes to suit all-day use. Leather detailing and zipper pulls round out the Sling's hardware, while padded back paneling offers all-day comfort and ventilation.

A compact sling is an EDC essential, and Bellroy's offering is worth a serious look. Check it out and pick it up direct from Bellroy at the link below.
