BUYER'S GUIDE: What to Look For in a Concealed Carry Sling Bags
Concealed Carry Sling Bags are a popular choice for many new and experienced hunters today. The classic style of carrying a heavy bulky backpack has been replaced with something more exciting; the concealed carry slings. These bags have become more popular than ever, primarily because they offer hunters more options for their gear. Many times hunters will use their slings to carry items such as their GPS, gun holsters, and even tactical vests. The sleek, modern design of the hidden carry slings makes these bags even more versatile than their traditional backpacks.
When choosing the best sling bag, there are many things that must be considered. First, the size is an important factor. Many are small enough to be worn in a shirt pocket. Others can be big enough to be worn over the shoulder with your favorite vest or on your belt. All carry bags should fit your body type and provide you with the best options for your gear.
The interior design of a bag is also an important feature to look for. Some are made with padded compartments for your important accessories while others are made to be very functional with separate compartments for your handgun and other essentials. Having separate compartments is essential for your gun and gear.
Another important feature to look for in a bag is its durability. It should have a durable waterproof vinyl exterior that resists tearing and staining from exposure to water. A durable exterior is great but even more important is the interior design. The best are those that are water-resistant and are made with a sturdy design that provides a comfortable carrying position. In addition, most have multiple pockets designed for quick and easy access to your gear or other items.
Strap design is another feature to look for when making your selection. The better bags have padded straps that run the full length of the bag. This allows for the best possible carrying comfort and protection. Many also include extra accessory pockets on the outside of the strap so that you can easily reach for your flashlight, gun, or other items you need.
Another feature to consider is the quality of the shoulder straps. If a bag has weak or loose straps then it will not last long. The best feature to look for is the strength of the strap itself as well as the fabric used. Choose bags that have reinforced straps with thick nylon or high quality cotton to ensure that it provides the maximum comfort to the user. It is also important that the straps run the full length of the bag so that it is well-padded. This will prevent it from being pulled down or ripped during a fall.
The next feature to consider is how well-equipped the bag in regards to water-resistant capabilities. Some have inside pockets which are designed to hold wet, damp clothing which is necessary when camping or hiking. Most also come with high-quality waterproof material lining inside the compartment. However, it is important that the bag has proper lining so that you do not have to pack all of your wet clothes separately to keep them from getting ruined.
Lastly, you should choose a Concealed Carry Sling Bag with plenty of pockets. This is where you will be storing your cell phones, keys, money, pens, and other items you need. Most of the bags I find have three or four separate compartments along with a zippered pocket inside of each compartment. This allows for easy organization of your gear while also allowing you to access the items you need quickly. Along with the zippered pockets, you may want to look for an exterior zipper pocket which you can then use to stow your items such as a map, a flashlight, or another small item that you need quickly.
