Met Expectations

I’ve been using this sling for almost two years now, and I must say, it has met just about every expectation I had. It’s the only sling I’ve tried doesn’t constantly slide around my body. That’s due to the grippy rubber on the shoulder pads. The pockets have worked phenomenally for my needs. I’m honestly surprised I haven’t seen any reviews thus far. This is leading me to believe I should make one for this bag, so as to get the word out, because people have no idea what they’re missing. It was a bit larger looking than I expected, and a bit on the smaller expensive side, but overall it’s an amazing bag; even if you don’t use it while riding a motorcycle, because I don’t.

Moto Front Sling for EDC and Travel

Well, I haven’t purchased a motorcycle yet. In any case, I primarily purchased this sling bag for my EDC and for traveling. It holds everything that I must have on me: from my Leatherman, wallet, cell phone, reading glasses, headphones, etc. and still has room to conveniently carry additional items needed when traveling.
Took a while to find the right sling bag – you can’t go wrong with the MOTO SLING! The build quality, both inside and out, is excellent! The magnetic quick release buckle is one of my favorite features on this sling bag!

Very Happy

I recently picked up this sling bag that’s specifically designed to be worn in the front. It’s not your typical sling that you slide to your back; this one’s all about that front-facing style. I picked the ballistic nylon with the black full grain leather accent, it looks really sharp.
Design and Features
The bag’s design is super thoughtful, especially when it comes to the compartments. It has two main ones:
Front Compartment:
A slot for my iPhone.
Two pockets for my wallet and keys.
Extra space where I can toss in some cash and coins when I’m in a rush.
Main (Middle) Compartment:
Four pockets: two on the front side and two on the back side.
Roomy enough to fit my iPad mini 6.
Space for my two charging cables (one for my iPhone and one Type-C for my iPad).
My power bank, coin pouch, and sometimes my hand sanitizer or face mask.
The middle space can even fit a 12-ounce water bottle.
While this bag is geared towards motorcycle or scooter riders, it’s perfect for my bicycle rides and works great as a regular sling bag too. It’s versatile enough for just walking around as well. I genuinely think it’s the best sling bag they’ve made. They have another version, but this one’s design stands out more to me.
When I Use It
I reach for this bag when:
I need to carry both my iPad and iPhone, plus charging peripherals.
I’m heading out for a day-long trip and need my essentials.
I want a little extra space for small purchases.
I feel like showing off a bit because it looks so stylish!
Personal Touches
To make it more my own, I’ve decorated the bag with charms that match its aesthetic. I’ve got a cute bowl of ramen charm and a tribal shield charm from Coron, Palawan. These little touches highlight my love for ramen and travel, making the bag even more special to me.
Final Thoughts

Excellent sling bag for air travel.

I don't own a motorcycle but I have found this sling bag is perfect for air travel. I've already used it on a couple flights. It can hold my 11" Samsung S9 tab in it's case, Sony over the ear headphones, battery bank, wallet, travel docs, keys and a protein bar it's very convenient at the airport and I've been been using it as a 3rd carry-on item without issues. Highly recommended. The quality is excellent and it should last for years to come.

You don’t have to own a motorcycle to enjoy this bag!

I’m a huge fan of cross body bags and an even bigger fan of WaterField Designs - so I grabbed this bag even though I don’t own a motorcycle anymore. I love quick release buckle, and how easy it is to get at all my EDC stuff.

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




For a limited time, the Moto Front Sling is available in X-Pac® Canvas, a high-performance textile that blends the durable, lightweight, and water-resistance of X-Pac® with a soft canvas feel. This combination is ideal for the Moto Sling which requires tough materials to weather the elements. 


With the X-Pac® Canvas, we have more flexibility in offering the Moto Sling in other colors. The canvas feels gentle yet it can withstand rain, wind, sleet, and snow. 


Available in X-Pac® Canvas until April 21st. 



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.
