Not only is it trendy and fashionable, but it is small enough to take all those important essentials that you may need.
Need a few compartments
This will include smartphones, wallet, keys, or even a compact tablet. Make sure your sling bag has a few compartments so you can house these.
Many travellers prefer sling bags to backpacks, and effectively they are carried in a similar fashion to backpacks.
Put over your shoulder
The beauty of sling bags is you put it over your shoulder with one long adjustable strap across your body. This makes the weight of the bag evenly distributed and more bearable.

The advantage of the trendy sling bag is that they are not expensive compared to other bags. They can be as cheap as $15 to $100 dollars. Sling bags come in all shapes and sizes for both men and women. They are perfect for carrying all your essentials, when going on a flight, day trips, travelling to work, and running errands. Unlike other bags which might give you neck, shoulder, and backache, you can carry your sling bag with the strap across your chest.
One of the main disadvantages of a sling bag is that it has limited storage space compared to other bags. If the bag is heavy, it might be uncomfortable to carry with one strap. If you buy a waterproof sling bag you might find them more expensive and heavier than other types.
If you don’t want to carry a heavy load then sling bags are your best option. Literally just sling it over your shoulder and away you go. A good colour to have is Burgundy/Rust, which goes well with any outfit. You can never go wrong with black, and green is a nice earthy and warm colour.
