Usage and Experience

I have been using The Man Bag Co. The City Sling V2 for a few weeks since this post. I like that quality materials are being used, and there are many, many compartments for a sling bag. This includes a padded one for added protection for devices that I feel is important. 

I am also amazed by how much stuff I can actually put in this sling bag! As such, here is the list of stuff that I have managed to fit in together: 
This is like a stress test as the ShakeSphere tumbler and Xiaomi umbrella are big stuff to put into a sling bag of this size. It bulks up after putting all the stuff in, but I am still able to zip it successfully.

As it is waterproof as mentioned, I did a test by pouring a small amount of water onto the surface of the sling bag. True enough, the water did not sip through, and this gives me peace of mind that my stuff will not be wet if the sling bag comes into contact with rain.

This is the first time I come across the Fidlock® Patented Stainless Steel V-Buckle Magnetic Clasp. Unlike other buckles that need some aiming to slot in, the magnetic clasp makes it easy to catch, and it is also secure like any other buckle.
