Keep Pursing KP Sling Bag review

{ 6 comments }

kp-sling-1

Keep Pursuing’s new KP Sling Bag is a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign that launched today for what they are calling an Everyday Adventure bag. I call it a cross between a wallet and a messenger bag because it’s designed to be part of your EDC – Every Day Carry.

Note: Images can be clicked to view a larger size.

The KP Sling Bag is a small unisex gear bag designed to be worn across your body. It’s available in three colors including Jet Black/Blue, Gray Camo/Orange and the Army Green/Orange version that they sent me for this review.

The tear drop shaped bags are made of water resistant 1000D Cordura nylon with vegan leather accents, zinc alloy hardware and a seat belt style shoulder strap.

The KP Sling has three YKK water resistant zippered compartments. The largest compartment unzips to reveal a bright Ripstop Nylon interior with a sunglasses pouch under the flap and three meshed pockets on the back wall of the bag. This bag isn’t very large, but it had no trouble holding my LG G3 smartphone in the electronics pocket, my Waterfield Finn wallet in one of the mesh pockets and other small items like a notebook, pen, car keys, lip balm, etc.

Here’s a view of the back of the KP Sling. The back of the bag is flat so that it can be worn comfortably against your body. There’s an extra metal attachment point that you can use to attach items or for the included stability strap (not pictured).

The center pocket is along the top edge of the bag and opens to expose a padded compartment that is perfect for electronics like your phone or small camera. It’s not quite large enough to hold a small tablet like an iPad mini though.

There’s also a pocket on the back of the bag that has a secret pocket that can be used for hiding cash or other small flat items like your passport.

The image above shows the included padded shoulder strap that is removable.

The KP Sling bag is designed to be worn across the body.  Since the bag is small and can only hold your essentials, it is very comfortable to wear.

The bag doesn’t get in your way while walking, biking, etc. The included stability strap can be attached if you’re worried about the bag sliding around while biking or running.

kp-sling-10

The KP Sling can easily slide around your body so that you can access the pockets without removing the bag.

kp-sling-6

Keep Pursuing is also offering a KP Paracord USB Bracelet with 32GB of flash memory.

kp-sling-7

The bracelet can be used every day for transferring files and in emergency situations you can unravel the paracord for a variety of uses.

The Keep Pursuing KP Sling Bag is a well-made, comfortable to wear gear bag that offers an assortment of storage pockets to carry your daily essentials. As long as you don’t expect to carry too many items, it works great.

    Yagottabekiddingme. Sorry. I just can’t see how this price is justified.

      Unfortunately, the price doesn’t seem out of line when compared to other bags from companies like Timbuk2, WaterField, etc.
