My daily commuter

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Perfect for a raoming book worm, or someone who may not want the hip bags.

Good for day trips

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Nice color, functional and good amount of pockets. Works well for errands or a day walk in the park. Fits my binoculars, point and shoot camera and wallet/phone.

Love it!! Great small sling

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wanted a sling bag so my shoulders weren't tired at end of the day when wearing on trails or in amusement parks. This was perfect. This backpack is not quite as big as I expected it to be, I am 6'0" about 170 (see photos). However, this was not a problem for me! I came to enjoy how small it was, I can pack everything I need for a day in it. Wallet, keys (plastic carabiner in interior zip compartment is great and something I like in other outdoor brands), a packable jacket like north face or other brand, portable charger, chapstick, water bottle, etc. Love the color as well! Would recommend it

Cool color way and neat features

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was drawn towards this sling because of the colors and some of the features, like the phone zipper pocket on the strap. My only negative takeaway is that it's smaller in space than the mini borealis backpack. I still like it as it's meant to be a portable backpack.

The water bottle sleeve is USELESS

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] You cannot fit anything bigger than the skinniest water bottle in the water bottle sleeve. It will fit a Totes style mini umbrella, but not a water bottle. Deal breaker for me. I will be returning it. Also, be aware it's not ambidextrous.

Perfect Pack for Short Trips and People

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great sling bag for short hikes or walks around town. It can fit a water bottle - I gotta assume reviewers complaining it cannot think that anything smaller than 32 oz is a thimble. A bottle up to 2.5 inches diameter fits OK, which includes 16 and 20 oz plastic water bottles and some resuable equivalents. Anything wider, including smaller Nalgene bottles, is going to be a struggle. Or you can use the bottle pocket to hold an umbrella. Inside the main compartment is a sleeve that just accommodates my 2017 iPad when it's not in a cover. I wish there were a couple of millimeters more clearance but it goes. It fits a iPad mini or a sketchpad easily. There's a separate zip mesh pocket in the main compartment that takes stuff like a wallet, and has a key strap. The smaller outside pocket is fleece lined - I use it to protect clip on sunglasses but it would be good for a phone. Except my iPhone 14 Pro fits into the strap pocket just fine. My old 12 Pro Max also fit although it was a fiddle to zip up. The sling has a carry handle on top that is padded - a luxury touch point for a small bag. And the bungy cords on the outside are good for holding a fleece or raincoat. Both compartments have zippers that are also positioned so that you can slide the sling around you and open it sideways while it's across your chest, so your stuff doesn't cascade out. The only thing I don't like is that the strap doesn't accommodate both shoulders. I wish there were a clip and loop on each corner to let me switch sides from time to time. In an era of accessibility being left-handed shouldn't be a crime. And for big folks the strap might be tight. But I'm 5ft 6" and I don't care about giants.
