“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.”
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.
Got tired of loading up my pockets and going through a mental gear list every time I left the house, so I got me this manly purse, er, murse, er sling bag. Works as expected, but only stays up on my back if cinched up quite a bit. Some strips of rubber on the underside of the strap might help, but might have its own drawbacks. It nonetheless less stays behind me out of the way, and also rides well on my hip or under my arm. I don't mind the thinness of the strap, but a wider one might make it a little more comfortable and easier to tell when the strap is twisted. Got the ballistic version so I could use it with a suit or without. As I hoped, it flattens out when not full, which is a good thing. I like using the key tether since it makes my keys easy to find and pull out, but I wish it was longer, since holding up the bag to unlock a door is tedious (I'll look for an additional tether). Finally, I wish it had 2 or. 3 skinny pockets for pens and/or my pocket knife. There seem to be a lot of new sling bags out there, but most of them are larger than I wanted. This one is comfortable and checks most of my boxes.
Last year I purchased a padded gear pouch to use as a Murse before a trip to Italy. I ended up buying a hook and strap for it through amazon. Always wished it was bigger and the strap only connected on one side. When the shutter sling came out I purchased it for my trip to Spain. I got the smaller of the two I love everything about it except it needs more pockets inside. My gear pouch has five on the inside and a couple on the outside compartment. The sling only has two on the inside so everything is disorganized. Not sure why there isn’t more pockets like the gear pouch.
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.
