* The best tactical sling bags
* Inject some military style into your look
* Great for hiking and camping or streetwear
Military gear has always had a place in fashion, but the combat-ready look changes quite often. Lately, a new piece of military gear has started popping up on the street: sling packs.
The trend makes sense, as crossbody bags recently blew-up, but the tactical look makes the must-have trend feel fresh for 2019.
Military sling packs are essentially small backpacks that utilize a cross-body fit. The bag’s design is intended for quick access on the battlefield, but this quick access also comes in handy for everyday essentials like gadgets, chargers, IDs and diapers. Plus, their smaller size and tactical organization makes them ideal as an everyday carry. The tactical sling also makes a great choice if you’re traveling this summer, as you can carry it on your chest to avoid pickpockets.
If you’re in need of a new go-to everyday bag, we highly recommend considering a tactical sling pack. To help find the right one we rounded up a few highly-rated, reasonably-priced options below.
