To Know:

Moment’s first ever full-bodied camera sling is now here. This bag is the first of its kind. With an extremely tough exterior featuring a rugged, waterproof, recycled NorthPak material, this bad boy can go literally anywhere you want — worry-free. It’s made for both men and women looking for something to carry their bag through harsh conditions in a minimalist fashion. Its extremely thoughtful design means big comfort and fully customizable packing options.

What We Love:

Satisfying Magnetic Buckle

The magnetic piece for the tripod strap is incredibly satisfying and secures everything in place.

Non-Slidey

A super thoughtful piece is the strip of hypalon to help your tripod not slip on the recycled material.

The case and phone fit perfectly in the fanny.

To Know:

Tie it around your waist, or sling it around your shoulder. This sling pack is designed for the one-the-go creative in mind.

The Moment Fanny Sling is one of the most comfortable fanny packs on the market and the bag I use for day trips in the mountains or hanging in the city. Moment likes to use canvas and ripstop materials with a PU coating so the packs can handle light water during a rainstorm, while feeling comfortable against your body. We even included weathproof zippers to protect gear during a rainstorm. The end result is a pack you can wear for hours with a variety of gear and size combinations.

The Olive Canvas and Black Ripstop feature updated design details including a slack proof main strap, for true set-and-forget fit. The lens pocket on the front is now accessed beneath the front strap, which keeps the bag’s silhouette tidier while storing your Moment lenses or other small accessories more securely.

What We Love:

1. On The Go

Its sleek, low profile design makes this bag your first option to bring while skating, hiking, shooting streets, or music festivals. Because you’re able to clip it around your waist or sling it around the shoulder, there’s room for any activity at any time of day.

2. Tough Materials

Black Ripstop features updated design details including a slack proof main strap, for true set-and-forget fit. Moment likes to use canvas and ripstop materials with a PU coating so the packs can handle light water during a rainstorm, while feeling comfortable against your body.

3. Small, But Mighty

The main compartment features a larger phone pocket for those Plus and Max models, the filter pocket fits two 62mm filters, and the interior lining is now a high visibility light gray so your small accessories can’t hide in plain sight.

The Details:

Brand: Moment

Price: $49.99

Bag Type: Camera Sling

Made for the urban photographer in mind.

To Know:

An easy-to-access camera sling that is large enough to carry all your gear but comfortable enough you can explore all day with it.

This sling combines the traditions of a camera bag with the requirements for all day mobility.

Start with the shape, it’s rectangular which gives you the room you need to configure the bag from three small pockets to one large body. It also makes it easy to move the bag to your side, access a camera and change a lens without the bag collapsing on you. The soft, protective liner protects your gear and the small pockets prevent you from having to fish for things. The design of the wide strap and the extra chest buckle lets you lock the back down, close to your body, for all day walking or riding.

If you are looking for a camera bag that can fanny or a fanny that is a hidden camera bag, the Niko Sling is for you.

What We Love:

The Brand:

This is where the history of Chrome Industries stands out. If you aren’t familiar with their bags, they have been making indestructible gear for people living in the city, since 1993. It means they understand zippers, buckles, and materials.

The Size:

This fanny sling is unique. It’s large enough to fit large camera gear, but comfortable enough you don’t notice when it’s full.

Quick Access:

The top opens for fast access to change a lens, the pockets make it so you don’t have to fish, and the removable organizers let you change from three small compartments to one open compartment
