Product Information

This beautiful, versatile bag is more than just a backpack. It's also a tote and a shoulder bag. The two back straps can be pulled upwards through the top tab to transform the bag into a tote with an 8" handle drop, perfect for in-hand or on-shoulder carry. Bring the straps back down and the bag is a backpack once again, ready for hands-free travel. 

The unlined interior provides ample room, and the bag can be compacted and brought close to the body by adjusting the collar buttons on the interior straps.  



    The monogram on the Sling Backpack is subtly placed on the interior pocket of the bag, slightly below the zipper. The font is Times New Roman and stands about 1/4" in height. You have the option of gold (pictured) and debossed (not pictured).

    It’s very nice

    Worth the investment!

    I could not love my bag more. The leather is supple and the design is as gorgeous as it is versatile. It makes me happy every time I see it. I also had an excellent customer-service experience with Greg after my purchase—Lotuff has made me a loyal customer for life!

    My Perfect Companion

    I’ve always been a backpack kind of woman, but the trouble is that there are not many stylish, versatile and well made backpacks out there for women that aren’t covered with logos or zips everywhere. The Sling Backpack is perfect. I’ve been using it on my trip to Vietnam where it has served as a reliable carry on and travel companion walking around the hustle and bustle of Hanoi as well as a work companion, providing an understated stylish home for my MacBook during the work week in Central London. I love how easily you can move from backpack to shoulder dependant on your situation.
    I have no doubt I’ll be using this bag for many years to come and I’ve greatly appreciated the wonderful customer service I’ve received, from Greg and the team, as an international customer.
    The only question on my mind is, which colour to get next?

    Perfect Pack

    It’s here, it’s gorgeous, I’ve already stuffed it every which way with travel gear! This will be the perfect bag for biking/hiking, and then for whatever the day holds. The color “clay” is sublime, it’s the perfect neutral, but not at all boring. And the leather is just so so soft. The shorter strap length works, and being able to store my phone so accessibly is huge, so thanks for the extra pockets and custom work. What a luxury, what a treat. Lotuff is the best. Thanks for being here! And thanks, Greg, for the personalized service.

    Perfect Everyday Bag

    I am in love with my indigo Sling. Living in New York, I treasure the versatility of being able to wear it like a tote for work meetings and then converting it into a backpack for a bike ride. It fits my macbook air perfectly, and even has some room left over for gym clothes. It's been by my side for over two years now and the leather continues to get softer and richer with age. I constantly get compliments on its modern style and love having a unique piece that isn't just the Bag trend of the season. I'd highly recommend this bag to others.
