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.

Top customer reviews
My likes and dislikes about the Sitka Gearslinger. One thing I liked about it is the amount of small compartments this bag has. It is great for those small every day carry items. The build quality is also great. The one big dislike I have and the main reason I returned the bag is it is just uncomfortable. I have a accurate postal scale and weighed the bag after I filled it with the stuff I carry from day to day. The bag weighed loaded 8 lbs. 5 oz. After about 15-20 minutes my shoulder was killing me. The purpose for the pack is to be able to carry it on my back but it just didn't work for me.
I would highly suggest filling one with around 10lbs and wear it for a while to see how it feels. I wish I could have kept it because I really liked the bag but it was just to uncomfortable for me and I went back to my Condor II
My MacBook Pro 13 inch (mid-2014 retina) fits fine and unlike others, I do like to use it this way at least when I fly since I use only this bag and a Northface Base Camp 90L to carry everything I own. The bag is high quality and looks great. I load it down as heavy as I feel like and I never worry that it will break nor do I whine about having 12 kilos on one shoulder. Sorry (not sorry) but the negative comments regarding these bags do not sound like they come from the type of people that the bag was designed to appeal to. They doesn't mean those concerns are not valid, but the star rating should somewhat reflect this, in my opinion. The company name even says "Hard-Use" right between Maxpedition and Gear. I'm jsayin...
However, it is such a versatile bag, that it appeals to not only military guys but all sorts of fashion minded folks (even avid scuba diving travelers) and that is a good thing. I don't mean to criticize the naysayers, but as a "hard use" kinda guy, I say put your lap top in it if you want to, then load it down with 20 kilos (if it is even possible) and then put full Nalgene in the pocket for even more weight. It won't hurt the bag. It probably won't hurt you either. My laptop has not been damaged.
I didn't want to just jam a bunch of kit loosely in it, so I've made use of a Condor organizer, which fits snuggly in the main compartment. Even with that, I'm able to carry a notebook/journal, a few sets of small pliers, a Maxpedition pocket organizer I use for a first aid kit, and still have space for a good length of Paracord. In the top outer pocket I have another Max organizer with my lockpick kit. In the pocket below I carry my medications and energy bars.
I'd have to rethink it if I were EDCing a firearm - probably have to lose the Condor. But my personal protection preference is a small-medium fixed blade knife, which I can strap right to the outside.
Of all the rucks I've carried, this one is my favorite so far.
