What makes sling backpacks so comfortable and so awesome for everything? Studying that was a little beyond our scope, but we DID manage to research and review the best sling backpacks around. When you need something comfortable and durable to carry your gear, you can’t go wrong with a sling backpack! Need a little more info before reading our best sling backpack review? Take a look at these basic specs we list with each review to help you choose!
Colors: From basic black to neon brights, you can choose the best match for your style from different color options.
Water Resistant: Can the bag hold up to rain or snow? Water resistance is a great feature even if you just need a sling backpack for school.
Laptop Size: If you want to bring along your laptop or tablet, check out the allowable laptop size (measured diagonally from corner to corner).
Dimensions: We’ve all ordered something online and had it arrive looking… different from how we expected. Avoid that with the dimensions spec!
Weight: Some of our sling backpack picks are ultra-lightweight, while others are more rugged and heavily padded.
Warranty: Once the return window is up, it’s good to have a safety net in case a hidden defect rears its ugly head!
Okay, are you ready to start reading the reviews now? So are we! If you’re short on time, our top pick and budget pick summarize the best of our sling backpack finds.
