The Sitka Gearslinger is our sling designed bag which allows the user to "swing" the pack to the front while the pack is still worn.
A one-strap design maximizes utility when the bag is rotated to the front of your body, and a ventilated, padded back keeps you comfortable.
Top and side handles offer numerous alternative carrying positions, while the PALS modular webbing throughout enables you to easily attach accessories. A water bottle pocket is sized to fit a standard 32-ounce Nalgene bottle.

The one thing that drastically effects the way i use this bag is the third strap. I keep it connected all the time. I will disconnect the main strap to take it on and off. I don't have to throw it over my head, and i can carry it with the one strap like a backpack only being carried with one strap.
I have also attached several aftermarket pouches, only one maxpedition.
I run a headlamp through some of the MOLLE on the strap to make it easily accessible to point at things I need to see. I also have a multtool pouch, and a gear re tractor with my bike lock key.
I removed the elastic tie string over the top section, the compression strap, and the zipper pull tie down. I replaced the zipper tie thing with a grimlock clip.
I also added a grimlock clip to the front to hold in a pair of trauma shears.
I have no real complaints other than the back i received was not fully quality checked, one of the zipper ties was sown into the bag. I cut it out and just don't have a pull tab on that one. Not a big deal for me.
Update 6/12/15: After using his for over a year and a hlf I have some addendum.
#1 I rarely use it for off body carry. The concealed carry pouch is perfect fir for my Yoga 2, it also adds much appreciated stability to the pack.
#2 I have added two new triglide sliders to both of the mainbody straps. I found when I had it heavily loaded (which is easy to do) it was more comfortable cinched up tight. It loosened easily though, so I modified it.
It is starting to show visible wear after a year and a half of daily use. 5 countries, and about 5 military schools and trainings. But it is not wearing out at all.
Size - Holds more than enough for daily use.
Compartments - Plenty of compartments and dividers inside pockets to organize items. Stops things from moving inside bag
Balanced - With a normal load it will not shift with one strap. Second stabilizing strap in not needed with normal load.
Secure - has a loop to hold all zipped compartments shut.
Durability - No change in bag in 3 years.
Tacticool - This is possible the most tacticool small backpack you could find. I suggest a matching molle fanny pack.
No Compression straps - it would be nice to be able to compress thinner when not carrying much.
A few modification can be made to make this look less tactical.
-Maxpedition logo can be taken off easily without damaging the bag.
-The Y strap with the buckle in the center Can be removed
-the elastic cord around the top on the outside compartment can be removed.
I would purchase this again if something happened to my old one. Very durable and practical.
Well, I've now had this bag for several months. I use it every single day, and I'm not exactly very nice to it. It has seen a lot of abuse and such, but it has stood up to it all incredibly well. I don't use it to carry all my textbooks, it isn't big enough for that, but I use it to carry a lot of my school stuff: iPad, computer, pencils, folders, calc book... Honestly, I haven't washed it once, and I've used it every day and it still looks brand new. Every stitch is still in perfect condition, the zippers are incredibly heavy duty, and the MOLLE webbing is very sturdy and helpful. I know there are some complaints that the single strap messes with your shoulders or something like that, but I carry it around all day every day with about 15-25 pounds and it hasn't had any effect. I guess if you put fifty pounds in it then it would be an issue, but you would have to load it with weights to do that anyway, and most bags will hurt after a while with fifty pounds. I find the single strap very comfortable and convenient. When I'm walking around campus, I can slide it around to the front of my body and pull anything out of it. Overall, still INCREDIBLY pleased with this product. Definitely worth the money.
