Great bag

Another well made bag. Great for travel and cycling. Holds just the right amount of technology. Thanks for yet another fantastic product.

Great Sling Bag!

Still enjoying my bag. Perfect space for my iPad and accessories. Including my water bottle and extras. Love the color and finish. Nice product. Thanks.

Exelent bag for my every day carry.

I've been wanting a sling bag, for every day use and have been looking for a while.

When i found the Sutter Tech Sling it was "love at first sight". Not only did it look amazing, but it was a perfect fit for my Microsoft Surface Pro.

Your design philosophy with user input and the gold interior for easy location of things inside the bags also made me interested.

Here is my experience using the bag for a little while now:
While it is comfortable when loaded with a bit of weight I have found it really shines when you keep the load low.

This has forced me to trim down what i carry a bit, especially considering the weight of the computer, but that was probably a healthy exercise for me anyways.

I found buying a smaller charger that would charge all my devices, cutting out a few items I rarely use, and really thinking about the weight of what i bring with me each day has helped me get the bag to a state where it hangs comfortably on my back, instead of twisting awkwardly to the side as it does when the load gets to big.

At first i was missing a bit more organizational pockets especially in the outer room, but I see now why you chose not to do that. And with the trim down i did its not that important. (thinking of getting one of your tech pouches for that if i find the need later)

One place that could use some adjustment in this department is that the "pen pockets" in the main compartment could have been just slightly larger. I don't carry that many pens (if any) but if at-least a few of them where a bit larger in diameter it would be possible to put my charging cables in those pockets.

Over all i really enjoy your product and I have already received a lot of comments on how cool my bag looks! :D

I will definitely keep an eye on any future products you launch and will gladly recommend your products to any of my friends. Especially considering how quickly you got the bag out to me even when you where out of stock.

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.
