INTRODUCING AIR SLING: A COMPACT BAG FOR THE 21ST CENTURY.
Backpacks are a great way to carry your stuff. When you have lots of it. But when you only need your essentials, your 24L pack isn’t going to cut it. So instead of bringing the bulk or going without, what you really need is a compact bag designed for modern life: A small form factor that holds your core gear safely and securely. A bag that helps you plan ahead so your phone never runs out of battery. A case that doesn’t sweat it when bad weather hits. All of this, while keeping you looking smooth and suave.
A BAG DESIGNED FOR EVERY DAY
Introducing the Air Sling. A light, sleek and durable sling bag handcrafted with the toughest materials and made for everyday use. The Air Sling is packed with functional features designed for any modern adventure.
