What Exactly are Sling Bags?

Sling bags are a popular choice for those who need a durable, fashionable bag. These bags have multiple benefits for those who are looking for something simple, functional, yet fashionable. Design wise, a sling bag is a bag with a square or rectangular storage compartment that are either zipped or folded (envelope) with a long strap that's attached on the side. This strap is used to easily carry the bag on your shoulders or across your body. Sling bags can vary in shape, size, and design which makes them a flexible type of bag.

A Sling Bag's Design

Sling bag sizes can range from big to small depending on the design and purpose of the bag. Sling bags come in a wide variety of styles, from nylon and canvas to high-quality leather. If you will be carrying valuable items in your sling bag, you will want to pick a style that provides some security by fully closing, so that any important items will be secure when worn on the back.

Best of all, sling bags are virtually the same size as backpacks, carrying everything you'll need for school, work or play. Convenient front and side pockets keep sunglasses, cell phone and audio player easily accessible. Many styles also include a mesh pocket for a bottle of water or your favorite refreshment.

Tips for Carrying Sling Bags Comfortably

While sling bags are comfortable bags to wear, it can be a little bit strenuous to carry for long periods of time, especially if you are carrying a lot. A sling bag is a hybrid pack designed to rest comfortably behind you while allowing easy access by simply swinging it off your shoulder. The position of the curved, padded shoulder strap causes the bag to ride on the back without slipping forward.

The shape of the shoulders is that the part that is near the base of the neck is usually higher than the tip of the shoulder, so it creates a natural “down slope”. Therefore, when a sling bag is carried only on one shoulder, the tendency is for the bag to slide off the shoulder. In order to stop the bag from sliding, one usually needs to lift up the shoulder on the same side to level the “down slope”. This can eventually lead to overuse of the shoulder and neck muscles and causes pain and stiffness.

Carrying across the chest

Therefore, to carry a sling bag properly is to carry it with its strap across the chest. By doing so, the weight of the bag pulls the strap towards the base of the neck (the “cross” effect), instead of slipping off the shoulder. Thus, there wouldn’t be a need for the shoulder to elevate excessively.

Another benefit of carrying a sling bag across the chest is that the weight of the bag can be supported by the hip or back, the downward pull on the shoulder is also lesser, which helps reduce the risk of over-using the neck and shoulder muscles. With these few pointers, you are now sling bag ready! Check out other sling bags in the Philippines such as messenger bags, and satchel bags!
