The 14 Best Sling Bags For Men To Keep The Essentials Close In Style

Keep your essentials handy with the best sling bags for men.

Sling bags, along with their cousin the bum bag (or fanny pack for our US readers) have slowly but surely become a part of everyday carry culture. With the bare essential items for any outdoor trip being a smartphone, a portable charger, and a wallet, we no longer need a large backpack to facilitate our everyday needs.

What was once a hit in the 90s died a tragic death in the early noughties, but now they are back in a big way. Not only do they provide a genuine functional purpose, but sling bag designers are able to inject their own stylish flair into their respective models, providing you with an extra accessory through which to show off your personality.

The rise in popularity of the sling bag – and their adoption by men – has also meant more and more manufacturers are jumping on board the bandwagon, giving you even greater choice. That does, however, make your task of finding the best sling bags that little bit trickier, but not to fear, we’ve got you covered with this definitive list.

How do I carry a sling bag?
