Sutter Tech Sling

Nice design, lightweight & comfortable. Love it!

Excellent sling bag for lighter carries.

Versatile sling bag, comfortable to wear once buckle position adjusted to suit your body shape. Shoulder pad is excellent with heavier loads or when wearing the sling over a tee shirt, but can be dispensed when wearing a jacket. Organisation pockets are good in the main bag, but an additional dedicated key pocket would have been useful since the existing pocket is handier for a phone.
Main bag easily fits water bottle, iPad Pro, chargers, camera, lightweight fleece. The additional pocket is good for quick access items such a book, windproof jacket or lightweight coat. The brown leather panel on the outside gives a nice weathered look. Sling equally comfortable worn across the front which is useful for airports when carrying a backpack.

Perfect size for quick errands. Doing a project between 2 houses and got tired of carrying everything in my pockets or holding them. Nice number of compartments/pockets to delegate certain items to. Quality and appearance is awesome. Picked up the matching pencil case. Having everything organized and together is Everything! Truly a happy lifelong customer here!

Fantastic Bag!

The Sling IS the perfect size. I was looking for a minimalist bag to carry a MacBook Pro 13 to 14 inch — mostly solving for a carry-on solution. I can easily and comfortably fit an iPad Pro and an Arc’teryx light jacket with a bit of room to spare.

ONE-HAND ADJUSTMENT WHILE THE BAG IS ON YOU

Quickly find the right fit and balance by easily adjusting the strap without taking off the bag. Small detail, big timesaver. 

 

"Perfect. Super compact. Zippers are easy to manipulate one handed. Cam lock works great to loosen it and slide to the front without taking it off for quick reach in." - Lawrence I., Santa Ana, US

HOW TO FRESHEN UP YOUR CANVAS

Keep your bag looking new by applying wax when you think it needs a little refresh. Although any wax is applicable, you can use Martexin Original Wax which was initially used to coat your canvas bag. 

CARING FOR YOUR LEATHER AND WAXED CANVAS 

 

If you have the waxed canvas and chocolate leather version of the Sutter Tech Sling, Gary shows how you can maintain these materials so they’ll look great over time. We use full grain Roughman Leather for your bag which has oils that respond well to heat.

 

Although this video is for the AirPods Max Shield Case, the maintenance also applies to your bag.
