DSPTCH’s USA-Made Slingpack Gets A Weatherproof Dyneema Upgrade

Like a modern hybrid between a classic messenger bag and the not-so-cool fanny packs of the ’80s and ’90s, sling bags are actually quite versatile — especially when it comes to city living and for those who use mass transit. And DSPTCH, for the larger part of a decade, has offered one of the best ones around. Now, it gets even better than ever before with the Slingpack Anniversary Edition.

Honoring the brand’s 10th anniversary, this new take on the Slingpack retains most of what made the original version excellent. That includes a sleek minimalist exterior, 15L of internal space, a laptop sleeve that fits computers up to 16 inches, and a 410D nylon pack cloth liner with a DWR coating. There is one major upgrade to this new edition, however, in that the exterior is now crafted from ultra-tough weatherproof Dyneema composite fabric — also making it more puncture- and slash-resistant than any other. Of course, it’s also still made in the USA and comes with the brand’s lifetime guarantee. Get one for yourself today for $184.
