          Comments about Monterey Sling:

          I overpaid for this when I picked it up in Berlin, Germany - compared to if I were to get it back home in Canada. Regardless, i love the bag and wouldn't have it any other way.

          I dress down for work (high tech) and now I don't have to bring my brief case to work while wearing jeans. The sling is big enough for my slate PC and iPad along with the rest of my equipment, but small enough that it's not bulky.

          I also plan to bring it on all my flying trips - when I leave my plane at an airport, I'd like to take a few items with me - log book, GPS, electronics, etc. I can do all that with this bag and just GO! Love it!

          A Great Day Bag...for Running Around Tow

            Comments about Monterey Sling:

            This bag was gifted to me by my employer. I work as tour guide with groups coming to the city and this bag is an ideal size for carrying, my Tablet PC, smartphone, small brochures, a water bottle and my keys (with an attached lanyard in one of the side pockets).
            The compact size makes it less intrusive in public spaces, particularly when I am riding on a crowded subway or bus. Construction is incredibly sturdy and stylish (as I have already received many compliments and inquiries about it).
            In my off time, I have found it to great transport for my personal electronics, keys, wallet and a small food container.
            For my use, I have not found any cons about the bag.
            I am incredibly happy with this bag and will recommend it to friends. Thank you Tumi for a well made, comfortable and sharp looking sling bag.

            Perfect Beach Bag

            Comments about Monterey Sling:

            I now use the Monterey Sling for when I'm in tourist mode and also at the beach. The build quality is fantastic and there are pockets and sections for just about everything you would need.

            I generally carry a tote to the beach but I'm reluctant to put my wallet, keys, phone, Kindle, and camera in the same bag and risk getting lotion, sand, water, etc. on everything. Now I carry the sling and put all of those items in it. The plus is the detachable strap; I hang the bag on a beach umbrella by detaching the strap, looping it through, and then attaching it back. If anyone wants to grab the bag and run, they have a anchored beach umbrella to deal with. It's also nice to be able to leave the tote items on the beach and just take the sling to lunch nearby.

            I did try to use this as my daily use bag, but it's just a bit too small to comfortably fit my standard list of items like over ear headphones, tablet, accessories bag with cables and such. I also found the strap did not go short enough (I'm 5'6) and one of the hardware pieces at the bottom of the bag for the strap would grind into my back getting caught right at my waist line because of my belt. I now use a Greely bag daily and use the Monterey for mostly travel, pool, family visits, and short road trips.

            • Very Light Traveling

            Comments about Monterey Sling:

            I tried to use this product while Traveling. Very tight fit for the following items: (Main Compartment) Noise Canceling Bose Headphones, 2 Pair of Sunglass in Cases, (Small side Compartment) keys, light wallet, Pen,(Larger side Compartment) Cell phone charger, Bluetooth, Glass Crookies, (Rear Compartment) iPad.. I used this backpack for Entertainment holding a few Items in the pack. The Biggest issue was the water bottle/umbrella holder. When the headphones were in there the water bottler holder was unable to operate. Also, while reaching in and out of the main compartment the zippers will scratch your hand while pulling out items (very annoying). In Short improvements to this specific pack should be update zippers, add expandability to the main compartment, have water bottle/umbrella holder extend out from main compartment to maximize main compartment interior. If you plan on purchasing this pack make sure the items that you are going to put in there FIT.. If not consider a different line of tumi Backpack... I love TUMI this pack was not for me but could be of use to someone else. I do Have a bigger tumi Back that i do use for traveling and love it..

                                Bought for travel (camera, etc). Strap on left side of the big zipper makes left pocket too small. iPad barely fits with case around it. Could use pad on strap and case for phone on front. Tumi usually does better.

                                  Sling looks great and is put together very well. Main problem with this product is size. My Samsung 12.2" tablet doesn't fit, as the zipper can almost not squeeze around my device. I personally think this is a significant problem that Tumi needs to address. The sling was designed for ipad dimensions, but tablets have since evolved and more consumers are demanding larger screens. Consumers would benefit from Tumi rolling out a 2nd generation sling with slightly larger dimensions.

                                  Use this for work that also transitions to travel for me. The styling is impeccable. I love everything about the way this bag looks. It's a wee bit tight as far as the pockets and overall storage. Access to the bottom of pockets is restricted and the main compartment opening is tight. That said, I do love it. I carried all of my airplane carry on stuff in it: iPad, headphones, small notepad, small medicine pouch, keys, wallet and a rolled up magazine plus a small point and shoot camera.
