Compared to the other slings I've used, it goes above the fold in my honest opinion. This is our first ever DSLR-sized camera sling crafted to perfection by our very own Stephen Jones, a legendary bag-maker-extraordinaire. We’re incredibly proud, after all his hard work, to make this what it is today. Check out the review and video below.

The comfortable, rugged camera sling.

Moment’s first ever full-body camera sling, made for the adventurous photographer in mind, is jam packed with customizable features and a low-profile design. This is truly the sling we’ve always wanted. A bag we could trust to carry our gear that was comfortable to use all day… even on our most active shoots. Made from rugged, 100% recycled NorthPack Sailcloth fabric and shockproof padding, this is the build quality that your grandfather would be proud of. Lined with soft pockets and configurable storage, it also keeps your gear organized, no matter how much you carry. It’s even multi directional for right and left handed shooters. Its active strap keeps your sling tight when moving, shooting, or even hiking, while its rectangular shape maximizes the gear you can fit. With a convertible strap for right and left handed shooters, this is the camera sling bag you’ll trust to stay tough and comfortable no matter the conditions.

What makes it unique? It’s a camera sling that does one thing really well — sling your camera. It’s not a multi-purpose sling bag. Instead it’s a camera sling that you trust to keep your gear protected, while staying close (and comfortable) to your body when moving, shooting, and even hiking. It’s tough exterior keeps your most valuable items protected under harsh conditions, making it top-tier quality. The bag has a low-profile silhouette that compliments nearly any style or body.

Overall, we’re proud of the work it took to make this bag and we’re stoked to put it in the hands of those who will appreciate it. Thanks to the man for being the all-star behind this project, Stephen Jones, and for inspiring us to only accept the best of the best.
