Top 8 Camera Slings for Minimal Creators & Travelers

Quicker access, more comfortable, and incredible convenience. Slings are all the rave, so here are our favorites.

Top 7 Camera Slings for Minimal Creators & Travelers

Camera slings, and everyday fannies, have made a big comeback this year. Not only do they satisfy the minimal traveler for everyday carry, but some are often large enough to carry your camera setup, photographers, and filmmakers alike. They aren’t able to hold the sheer volume a backpack might — but isn’t that the point? Many offer quicker access to your gear and emphasize reliable conveyance. Their cross-body engineering promotes more comfortable wear than your typical messenger or shoulder bag. Such beneficial carrying solutions have made these bad boys a favorite over the average backpack, but which ones are the best?

Not to worry, we did the work, so you don’t have to. Here is the top pick for the best camera sling bags for minimal trailers and everyday creatives.
