This compact Small Sling Backpack day bag is a smaller version of our hugely popular Large Sling Backpack.

We designed it to fit a 2 Litre water bottle with room for a light jacket, wallet, phone, sunnies, and any 11" Tablet.

The triangular sling design with a single strap makes getting to your gear effortless - just spin it around your body and open with twin zip access, no need to take it off.

2 different sized diagonal zipped compartments separate the big stuff from the small stuff keeping all your gear organized.

An internal dual entry zip pocket can be accessed from both the large or small compartments and fits any passport.

The adjustable main body strap is padded and lined with a breathable mesh- keeping you cool and comfortable.

The back panel of the bag is also padded with a ventilation channel to keep air circulating against your back.

For bike riding and other active pursuits, the cinch strap can be clipped into the main strap and tightened for stability.
Then, when not in use the cinch strap can be tucked away into its own pocket integrated into the body of the bag.

The Sling backpack can also be worn comfortably on the front of the body for easy access and extra security.

Clean, smart, comfortable and go anywhere!

    My first order through this company and the whole process was made so easy.
    I had been after a decent sling bag for some time and this one is exactly what I was after. Solid canvas, well made, comfortable to wear and with a reasonable amount of room.
    More than happy to recommend.

The team at Nomad Essentials are a dream to work with, so nice to talk to real humans! Thanks guys, will definitely be recommending ?

    Great quality and great service! I needed to exchange a product for this one (for size) and the team at Nomad Essentials were happy to help. The bag is super durable, and fits on the body really nicely. With plenty of pockets it also fits my laptop which is a bonus! Will definitely be recommending 🙂

    I’ve been using this for almost a year now for various walks and short wanderings in the bush when I don’t want to take a full-size backpack. Comfortably carries a litre of water, lunch, a book, a small tarp, a bottle of sunscreen and other small tools. I often attach a trekking pole bag to it as well. The sling is well padded and doesn’t drag on the shoulder at all. Very durable, comfortable and high quality. Definitely recommended!

    What a well thought out and great quality product! Received my small sling bag today for an upcoming overseas trip and was super pleased with the product. Exactly what I was looking for and so many uses. The handwritten note inside was a really nice touch, thanks guys 🙂 I’m a big fan of the contrasting orange interior for ease of finding items. I would highly recommend nomad products to anyone looking for great quality durable travel gear.

    Can’t wait to get travelling. Happy coincidence I have a few trips coming up. Would suggest to anyone looking for a new bag.

    Love my new sling backpack! Ordering online from the other side of the world is a true leap of faith, but my order was mailed quickly and reached me here in Canada in just ten days. The backpack is made from heavy canvas and perfectly finished – no loose threads or wonky stitching here! Love the orange interior. It’s just what I had been looking for, and hope to use it for fun adventures for many years to come.
