I had been shopping around for awhile looking for a sling-style bag which was just big enough to handle my daily carry tablet but which wasn't a full sized, non-compartmentalized backpack. Mostly I wanted something that had a separate compartment for my tablet away from the other stuff in the bag, but which compartment was also accessible without having to take the bag off my person, such as during a public transit ride. I stumbled across this particular pack during a session of Googling and liked the design immediately, but it was the company's story and goals that really got me. I decided to take the risk of ordering a product from a company I was unfamiliar with, and I'm pleased to say it paid off. The bag I ordered was exactly as described when I got it, was true to the measurements the site listed (and which I may or may not have meticulously measured against my tablet and school texts), and the quality of the material is at least equal to the best school bag I've ever bought off the shelf. If I had to single out a complaint, it would be that I wished the stretchy water bottle sleeve was big enough to fit a 32 HyrdroFlask; but it fits an umbrella nicely and I found a carabiner clipped to the shoulder strap holds a bottle with a loop-lid quite well.
Overall I'm very pleased with this bag, and have quite literally used it every day since it arrived. It has more than adequately met the purpose of hauling my tablet, notepad and a book or two at a time, along with selected charging cables, USB blocks and drives, and earbuds. If I can make suggestion to others looking to utilize this bag as a school/tech/commuter bag, consider a Grid-It organizer; the small size (7.25'' x 9.25'' fits perfectly in the main compartment.
I receive complements on my pack all the time so I was excited to give this pack as a gift for the Christmas holiday. As always these packs have an above average performance and quality.
I thought that this would make a great Christmas gift (it will!) But after I saw the pack, I ordered a second one just for me. Happy to be supporting the Gulu community and getting a well-made, compact sling that is roomy enough for my laptop.
I ordered the sling pack for my teenager. It has the cool vibe that I think he'll like. It is very high quality. And it arrived within days!
Extremely well made, great packaging. This shoulder bag was smaller than I expected but it’s so nice that we will find use for it.
