My favorite bag I own

I purchased the waxed canvas full size sling and it’s almost the perfect bag for me. The main compartment is spacious enough for my Switch Lite (in a Waterfield pouch), JBL Flip 5 Bluetooth speaker, iPad Pro (11”), and headphones with a good amount of space left for whatever else I want to throw in there. The front pocket that’s accessible on both sides is extremely convenient yet without changing the clean, minimalistic look of the sling. What must be Waterfield’s trademark lining is beautiful and really does act like “turning a light on” inside your bag.

The sling is generally comfortable but I do find it tends to slide down my back more frequently than I would like (I’m on the smaller, thinner side) and I’ve tightened it as much as I can while keeping the strap pad attached. For my purposes, though, it works just fine.

Anyway, I highly recommend this bag. It looks and feels amazing. I like it so much I might end up grabbing the backpack version too. Between this and my Qwstion Daypack, I’m all set!

Quality with lots of storage places

Awesome bag! Perfect for what I need for grad school and going places. Lots of storage!


Thank you. It is a gift so it has not yet been opened our received and not used. I have a smaller one which I am very happy and use every day.
I appreciate the quality and originality and the utility of your wonderful incredible line of manly accoutrements. I am Canadian.

Perfect for a surgeon

This bag is the perfect size to store my surgical loupes in and also the perfect size to carry any needed paperwork, etcetera around the hospital. The additional pockets and pouches make for each access to pens and I can keep a pager clipped to the strap. It's great to finally have something lightweight that I can use to carry my loupes without having to lug around a big bag.

Great experience so far!

I love to see an American company going after it :-)
From marketing to materials to perfect fit. I feel like this bag was made for my unique workstyle.
I love wearing it - I love the way I look with it on - it’s super detailed craftsmanship.
I will be acquiring from this Grade ”A“ U.S.A. company, soon.

What makes the Sutter Tech Sling comfortable for your shoulder and back?

First, the top strap attachment swivels 180 degrees so the Sutter Tech Sling stays vertical on your back as you move about. This allows for a more balanced weight distribution. Second, the wide pad helps keep the strap from digging into your shoulders. Third, the cam lock lets you adjust the strap while you are wearing the Sling so you can always get the proper fit.

What do you mean by easy-access or one-hand access?

We designed the Sutter Tech Sling so you can quickly and easily access its contents with one hand. If you’re in a crowd with limited personal space, you can quickly swing it in front of you to access items from the front pocket. The dual zippers in the main compartment also let you access items in there.

Why is the bag lined gold?

First, the liner adds a bit of protection for the different items you carry inside. Second, we chose gold because this lighter, brighter color makes it easier to quickly see the contents inside your pouch.

What are splash-proof zippers?

These zippers from YKK, a trusted name in the zipper industry, are water-repellent and add another level of protection to the contents inside the Sutter Tech Sling.

What type of leather is used for the front panel?

We use premium, full grain leather. This is the most durable (and expensive) part of the hide with a really tight grain. Scratches on the surface are signs that this is the real thing, and it will develop a beautiful patina over time.
