Customer reviewsCute traveling bag
I was looking for a backpack for an international trip to serve as a carry-on purse and also carry items on day trips while traveling. I took a representative set of items I usually carry planner, Canon camera, extra lens, battery charger, wallet, Kindle, pens, water bottle, baby wipes, lip stick lip balm and tried them in several different backpacks. The Slingsafe LX500 was one of my top two choices. It comes in a variety of colors with useful anti-theft features like hooks to hold zippers in place. Some of the zippers are held in place with elastic loops rather than a clip hook, which mostly seemed like a pain to open. I liked the side pockets which fit my water bottle. I noticed two main downsides the top outer pocket in the front tends to make the bag top-heavy, and the lower front pocket is unsecured, which means I m unlikely to put anything in it except things I wouldn t mind possibly disappearing maps napkins . I stored the packet of wipes down there which was practical but didn t help the weight balance issue. This bag did have ample room with all the pockets and the large main compartment, but I think it s just slightly too large for my purposes. I would definitely recommend it though if you re looking for a medium-large traveling backpack.
