Sutter Tech Sling - The Ultimate Sling bag

I have spent the better part of the last ten years in Wheelchair. It took every bit of those ten years to find a bag that works rather I’m in my manual chair or my electric chair. The Sutter Sling Bag by Waterfield is by far the best bag I have found. The craftsmanship and material are easily the best I have come across. If you are looking for a high-quality bag that can be used for work or play this bag is worth every penny. Sure, it’s not cheap but like the old saying goes you get what you pay for. I highly recommend this bag for anyone looking for quality materials, outstanding workmanship and a bag that only looks better the more you wear it. The only thing I would add is a leather grab handle like so many of your bags have. Other than that it is by far the best sling bag I have come across!

Gorgeous and functional: may be the perfect bag?

Been looking for something like this for years-and finally have it. Exceeds expectations, great work! The bag is so good, that I change the laptops-I’m now at 13 inch laptop user forever.

The ONE

I have looked and looks like many other for the “perfect” EDC bag/satchel/backpack. It’s hard to find one that is big enough, not too big, looks good and is comfortable. It carries my 12.9 iPad fits perfectly. I love Waterfiled. Quality and thought out products.

Like this bag a lot

I have had time to use and carry the Sutter Tech Sling and it is great. I got the smaller one in waxed cotton to carry my new iPad Pro with the keyboard and my Bible with me on an Israel Pastor’s Study Tour in January. We’ll be doing a lot of hiking and this is lighter than my small waxed cotton backpack from SF Bags.

Minimalist Sling Pack

The Sutter is a fabulous pack to transport your iPad and other mobile devices. The iPad Pro with KB case makes for a snug, secure fit in the dedicated pocket. There are three pen pockets, which fit the Apple Pencil nicely. There is also a larger interior pocket to hold a wallet, phone, or similar device. There is a key fob to secure your
keys. There is an exterior pocket in which items can also be stored, accessible from either side via zippers. A highlight is the strap with a cam lock that be adjusted with one hand to adjust if you are carrying the case cross-body, or over a shoulder. The waxed canvas is rugged, the zippers designed to prevent water seeping in to compartments, and the leather “face” is both gorgeous and functional in providing protection to the pack. Not only are materials of high quality, but the workmanship is exquisite! This pack has plenty of organization and space, and yet no excess or bloat. It is an ideal pack for mobile tech users.

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 leather 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.
