“Now, men in the U.S. can catch up to the the rest of the world with WaterField Designs’ Sutter Sling Pouch, a gentleman’s handbag that’s just big enough for you to empty your pockets into.”
As usual the bag is well made. The strap is a bit of an issue. Without a cross body strap there is nothing to keep the bag from slipping further down your back or around to the front of your body unless you really shorten the strap. I find it difficult to find that sweet spot between uncomfortable and having to constantly adjust the bag. This is with no weight in it aside from a minimalist wallet and a set of keys. Additionally, since the bag requires regular adjustment as it slips around, if you accidentally grab the buckle, instead of pinching the strap, when you pull down the buckle (closed) simply slides down the strap. This is all while walking. I can't imagine trying to ride a bike with this bag without a cross body strap. Otherwise I love the bag and the form factor so hopefully I can find a solution to make the bag more comfortable and not slip around so much. It suits my needs as far as holding just enough for the day.
I just recently received the iPad mini case and despite the measurements on the website suggesting otherwise I would like to report that the case does (just barely) fit in this bag. It's not a tight fit (i.e., no force involved). It's just a hair smaller than the back panel on the bag. I wanted the case either way but was hoping to make it work with this sling so I'm happy it worked out.
one of their most apt products right compromise between a bag and a bag!
This bag is extremely high quality like the rest of their bags.
I bought this bag with a few concerns, but trusted the brand since I have another bag of theirs. It all worked out.
First concern was the size of the the front zipper. I thought it was just the width of the leather and could be too small, but it actually goes to the bottom of the bag. It should fit any size phone, however a kindle is just slightly too wide to zip. I just carry it in the main pocket.
Second concern - having to adjust the strap constantly. I wear my bag in the middle of my back and can easily pull it over my head without needing to adjust. Either way, the strap clamp is secure and very easy to change.
Zippers are high quality, some other reviews said its difficult to pull but I did not have that issue. It gets smoother after a while, but it should be snug anyway since it is designed to keep water out.
Is the Sutter Sling Pouch waterproof?
Can the Sutter Sling Pouch be worn as a waist-pack?
Why is the bag lined in gold?
We chose gold because this light color makes it easier to quickly identify the contents inside your bag. The liner also adds a thin water-resistant layer of protection between the canvas or the ballistic nylon and the items you carry.
What type of leather is used for the front panel?
We use premium, full grain leather, the (most expensive) part of the hide with a really tight grain that makes it highly durable. Scratches and other surface character are signs that you’re getting the real thing — authentic, distressed leather that will develop a beautiful patina over time.
