Paul C. (Idaho, United States)

It was intended to be a gift but I kept it for myself. At least I wanted to. I gave it to my son who’s going to Brazil for two years and he loves it. He wears it on the front as designed but it wears just as perfectly on the back too. This is my/our 7th or 8th product from waterfield sfbags. The integrity of these products are just as true now as they were when I bought them…close to ten years of regular to semi-regular use. Thanks

Moro cross bag

I love this bag because it holds all my stuff and is always in front of me. You know quality when you have have 2-sided zippers. I love the magnetized strap connection. I have bought 4 or 5 products and have been very happy with them. One extremely minor detail, I wish some of the inside pockets could close, e.g., velcro or magnet magnet to keep a wallet from falling out.

Edison A.S. (California, United States)
Almost perfect

I love the design it’s simple and straightforward. It’s just missing one thing and that is a pen holder something to keep your pen in place and easily accessible. One of the other main reason I bought it is because it’s made in California (San Francisco) American made that was in one of my great driving force to buying this bag. Just want to add one more thing It’s my second bag from this company and I’m on a roll I love the quality. Sal from LA !

David D. (California, United States)
Close to perfect for me

During my search for a front sling, I've tried many. Some were too small, some were too larg, and some were just the right size, but lacked an adequate amount of pockets. This, for the most part, checked off all of my boxes. Plenty of space for my needs, and it definitely has the correct number of pockets for me. I haven't really had a chance to wear it out yet, but I anticipate it serving its intended purpose.

My only concern,vis the strap. It appears to be slightly fraying all around, despite not being worn outside yet. That's the reason I've given it 4 stars instead of 5. I hope this doesn't affect its longevity. I considered requesting a replacement, but didn't know if that would be an unnecessary hassle.

Misha’El G. (California, United States)
Perfect sizing

It fits the daily items I use and need (wallet, chargers, nail hygiene kit, work phone and ID, lighter and wick, blue light lens glasses, sunglasses case, a utensil kit, two glass containers for lotion, and tiny Vaseline) without items falling out from the bag overflowing. There is plenty of storage compartments for all of those essential day to day items with the extra space for bringing back my little first aid kit to the rotation if I wanted to do so. The strap and bag itself is padded and comfortable to wear for a whole day and then some. I carry this for the whole day and a backpack with water and snacks on and off. Both are a breeze to carry now that I don’t have to take the sling on and off. The other sling bag I use called plenty of attention to itself with color and stuck out physically getting stuck to the backpack straps and to the seat belt. This is easier to carry and access belongings and has the dimensions for items I take to work.

Fashion Goes Fun-Sized: GeekDad Reviews the WaterField Moto Front Sling

GeekDad - October 21, 2022

“Designed as a front-wearing solution for biking commuters, its trim silhouette boasts everything I love about WaterField products in an even smaller package.”


The Moto Sling is a front-worn sling bag to access contents easily without swinging the bag around. The Moto Sling will hold the following: 


  • Wheel lock 
  • Multi-tool
  • Hex key set
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • A water bottle (horizontally)
  • Ear plugs
  • Wallet
  • Phone
  • Keys
  • iPad Mini
  • And extra space for other essentials




The Moto Front Sling is designed to be worn in the front, not the back, making it quick and easy to retrieve your wallet, keys, cash, cards, phone, and other personal items without the extra step of having to swing the Sling around from the back. 

This convenience is especially useful  for motorcycle riders who want to carry their essential gear in front so they  can access them without having to dismount and remove their jackets. Getting their wallets or ID before entering parking lots or purchasing coffee can be a hassle when stored in the back. 



The Moto Front Sling's one-of-a-kind design was developed with input from motorcycle enthusiasts to  address their specific riding requirements:


Gloved Access: Large zipper pulls with a grippy texture let riders zip open the Sling with gloves on.


Quick-Release Buckle: A magnetic buckle quickly separates the bag from its strap so the Sling can be taken off without having to pull the strap over the rider's helmet.


Stability While in Motion: The unique shape of the Moto Sling embraces the rider so it sits close to the body and minimizes moving around when going at top speed. The super grippy shoulder pad lets the Sling stay put on the body.


Weather Resistance: The materials can withstand the rain and keep gear dry. The ballistic nylon has a water-resistant backing and the nylon liner has an acrylic backing for two layers of protection. YKK water-resistant zippers are used throughout.


Interior Organization: Multiple pockets separate essentials tools (like heavy wheel locks) from personal items (phone, glasses).


The result is a stylish front sling that can be used on and off the bike. Light, compact, and fitted just right, you'll hardly notice you have it on. 


The beauty of the front-wearing Moto Front Sling is that you don't need to take off your bulky motorcycle gloves to access any of your essential items. The zipper pulls are big enough so you can zip open the pockets to take out your wallet, ID card, or safety lock. 


When you do take your gloves off, you can attach them to the Moto Sling so they'll be easy to find.


Designed for motorcycle riders, the Moto Sling's ergonomic front-wearing design and features are useful for anyone riding any type of transport where they have to sit or stand upright. 


Electronic scooter drivers, city cyclists, one-wheel skateboarders, and even those in wheelchairs will find the Moto Sling useful as an everyday carry.
