Born in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee, the EDC Travel Sling sits between a backpack, messenger bag, and fanny pack. We created the EDC Travel Sling for the active luxury lifestyle individual who needs something smaller than a daypack/backpack, knows a fanny pack is a great way to get served with divorce papers, wants to carry the bare essentials comfortably, and needs the ability to go from day on the trail to night on the town without skipping a beat.
The front pouch, constructed of waterproof X-Pac VX21 for excellent splash/weather resistance (note: The EDC Travel Sling is not waterproof), holds large every day and travel essentials like an iPhone 12 Pro MAX and a wallet/card case (Silent Pocket Simple Card Wallet shown) in an ultra-slim end-to-end orientation. For smaller essentials like hotel room keys, credit cards, driver's license, car keys, lip balm or AirPods, two hook Velcro-backed Utility Pockets are included. These Utility Pockets can be affixed to the Veltex inner liner mounted to the inside of the front pouch, opposite the phone/wallet holder. A single IceVents Classic Ventilation Pontoon provides incredibly comfortable stand-off ventilation for every adventure and connects to the front pouch via the laser-cut loop Velcro MOLLE field. The cross-body configuration is comfortable enough for long hikes, but secure enough for even strenuous backcountry adventures.
While primarily designed with everyday carry and light adventure travel in mind, the EDC Travel Sling is a self-defense tour de force, liberating users from the constraints of their environment. The front pouch features an open top load for easy access to an EDC knife and/or flashlight. A Taser Pulse or G43/P365 fit snugly in the iPhone slot. Discreetly placed along the bottom of the front pouch are three elastic keepers that can hold a single stick like a Breachpen, road flare, pepper spray, flashlight, or chem lights. The bottom of the front pouch conceals a quick-access holster for our EDC Coin Purse (optional) that keeps it accessible instantly without opening the front pouch.
A single laser-cut, laser-engraved, IcePlate EXO (ICE) laminate label adorns the world-facing panel of the front pouch. True to our multi-function design philosophy, it features laser-cut MAPs spaced for sunglasses, radios or any other belt-clip equipped item that you need to keep handy. A single YKK Water Resistant Zipper with Uretek Finish seals up both the front pouch and rear Bottle Bag.
An adjustable laser-cut shoulder strap made from our unique IcePlate EXO (ICE) laminate connects the front pouch to the rear Bottle Bag. Precise, asymmetric laser cuts position the sling perfectly on your body for a comfortable, stable, and secure fit. The shoulder strap is shrouded in the same stretchy, comfortable, durable and versatile plush Tweave found on our IcePlate EXO (ICE) Shoulder Shrouds. This Tweave Shroud is permanently anchored to the front pouch strap, making adjustment and Source 90 Drink Tube routing effortless.
The rear Bottle Bag provides scalable surge capacity. It can carry a water bottle (single use or reusable, up to Dasani 1L/33.8 oz., Nalgene 32 oz. or similar) or packable jacket, vest, light rain/wind shell, pullover or just about anything else you can fit in it. Each EDC Travel Sling comes with the same IceCap QD Water Bottle Adapter and Source 90 Drink Tube found on IcePlate Curve. The IceCap + Source 90 combo allows you to convert any Dasani water bottle into an instant, improvised hydration bladder for life on the move. The bottom of the rear Bottle Bag has a dedicated, laser-cut IceCap Port that allows you to invert an IceCap-equipped Dasani water bottle and pass it through to use as a field-expedient hydration bladder. Elastic Keepers surround the rear pouch for lashing packable layers when carrying a water bottle inside.
