In the past I was never a huge fan of sling bags, but that is starting to change. In my quest to be more of a minimalist with my kit, the sling bags force me to carry only what I need. Sling bags are also easy to carry through airports, venues with large amounts of people and overall every day excursions. That fact that you can access the contents of the bag without taking it off is a huge plus. If you’re commuting via public transportation, there is no need to ever take the pack off; you just swing it around to your front and take a seat.

I’ve been doing a lot of searching online, reading review, and consulting those that carry them. The name that keeps coming up is Vertx. We have highlighted several Vertx packs on our site in the past (The Gamut Plus Assault Pack and All in One Range Bag). Today we are going to take a look at the Vertx EDC Commuter Sling Bag. This sling bag blends right in and doesn’t draw attention to itself as a tactical bag. The Vertx EDC Commuter Sling Bag on the inside can accommodate your laptop, everyday carry items and a full size pistol with spare mag. Take a look at the following video to learn more about this awesome sling bag.
