Comfort

Atlas Packs Athlete

(1/2)

Important: Choose the Adventure or Athlete hip belt – otherwise you will have literally no padding on your hips. I don’t recommend using the bag without a hipbelt either. The Adventure belt is more comfortable as it provides two layers of foam padding and a wider webbing and buckle – it’s also bigger and bulkier.

Bellroy Mini Sling

(1/1)

The material was rough, not comfortable to handle. It grated on my clothes. If a bag material is not comfortable to handle, I don't use it, the bag ends up taking space in my closet. Size was another issue: I can fit my iPhone 11 Pro Max and Ray-Ban sunglasses in the case, but when I hung the pack around my shoulders or waist, the strap automatically pulled the pack smaller

Compartment

Bellroy Mini Sling

(1/1)

Let’s bring attention to the top of the bag, where we find both the front and main compartment openings. The front compartment’s zipper is shrouded by gusseted fabric courtesy of the front of the sling. It helps keep a cleaner aesthetic by not exposing the zipper elements, and you end up with a much flatter profile when the bag is compressed.

Carry-on

Bellroy Mini Sling

(1/2)

The result is a much tighter fit against you and a much better carrying experience. This also comes with the added benefit of fewer straps as you no longer need separate compression straps. Fewer straps equal cleaner looks equal to a thumbs up from us.

Size

Bellroy Mini Sling

(1/2)

I got the mini sling thinking it would fit my small Asian female frame better. It’s still a bit big (the bag in comparison to my body) and even at the tightest setting, the band was too large to clip around my waist. I ordered the blue and the color in real life is a lot darker (more of a navy blue) than what’s shown in the product photos. The material is also quite rough so I’m afraid it would shred up my clothes when being used as a crossbody sling

Strap

Bellroy Mini Sling

(1/3)

Fortunately, the Sling Mini improves on that while retaining a lot of the features we like on the bigger Sling. While it does come in a smaller size, there’s still a lot to love in the smaller sibling.
