As a man who travels a lot and lives an active lifestyle, having the right bag helps in more ways than just carrying your necessities. I recently received the KP Sling Bag which has been great.
Every time I’m in line checking in for a flight to who knows where (Colombia last week), I find myself thinking that it is unfair how women have a variety of choices for smaller bags where they can carry their valuables. Men like myself struggle looking for my passport or I leave it bulging out of my front pocket. The option for this is usually slightly smaller backpacks, laptop bags, or really ugly fanny packs. This is how the search for the ultimate everyday carry bag began.
I am happy to report that I think I have found one carry bag worth trying. KP Sling Bag, a Kickstarter that launched on July 14th, claims to be able to hold all your modern day tech essentials and keep up with my active, globetrotting lifestyle. A modern twist to the ugly and dated fanny packs, this bag proves to be stylish, comfortable, functional and robust. Whether in line boarding a flight, training with executive security details in Bogota, or at the gym; this bag is just pure awesomeness.
The KP Sling Bag Highlights
Bags have not managed to keep up with the lifestyle of people of today. People are on the go, with 2-3 gadgets close to them all the time apart from their other valuables. The main benefit of the bag is that it is built to cater to our modern lifestyle. It is comfortable and can be worn throughout the day. It has great functionality and minimal weight so that it can hang on your body without getting annoying. It is form fitting and slides from position to another, so you wouldn’t have to take it off when you are taking something out of it.
Another thing to point out is that it fits your gadgets and has a number of great compartments that can hold and organize your stuff. The bag is well-made with premium fabric and material, including a water-resistant exterior and waterproof zippers. It is ready for whatever activity you’re into – whether you’re hiking up a mountain or biking down to the coffee shop. To top it all off, it looks pretty damn cool.

The only thing that I can think of being a downside is that it has a sporty aesthetic. The bag looks more fitting for an active or casual day, so it might not be an everyday carry bag fitting for the commute going to the office in your full suit.
