    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.

                        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.

                        Not Addressing Tablet Market

                          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.

                          Looks great and sleek while worn.

                          Clearly an argument of function vs. form and style vs. usefulness.

                          If you put "stuff" in the main pocket it makes the two outside pockets to tight to get stuff in and out of.

                          Both outside pockets are too small. If you use them they take away from space in the main storage pocket as they maintain the sleek line of the bag, but with the items bulging inwards and taking away space from the main storage pocket.

                          The water bottle pocket is not really big enough for a standard water bottle to fit in easily when the main pocket is empty, then totally impossible for even a slim bottle if the main pocket is used.

                          If would be more useful if the water bottle pocket had side gussets that folded out when opened for a bottle.

                          The other outer pocket does not easily fit a mans hand ... especially to retrieve change or other small items that may be at the bottom of the pocket.
