Mega Sling

While sling bag designs usually emphasize sleek, unobtrusive structure, the Hex Ranger Sling XL boldly goes in another direction, offering a large storage capacity that can fit a 13-inch laptop and multiple camera bodies and lenses.

Hex worked with photographers and customer feedback to design the Sling XL from the ground up, making a versatile bag that’s larger than a traditional sling yet smaller than a backpack. Its trunk-like shape resembles a bike or motorcycle pannier.

Features include a water-resistant shell, hideaway rain fly, exterior organizer with phone pocket, multiple points of entry, and cinch straps for a tripod. The 2.2-pound bag measures 14.5x11x5 inches and comes in black, camo, glacier camo, and blackout camo. $149.95
