Which are the best sling bags for women?

Functionality that comes wrapped in the spirit of style is the ideal choice that you should be looking for.

A simple Google Search can open a rabbit hole in the different types of sling bags that are out there. But the most important part should be your comfort and requirements. You should consider your personal preferences while investing in your sling bag. Things like size, the number of compartments, material, type of strap, and strap length are important considerations while making your choice.

The size and shape of the many different types of sling bags have given these types of bags a very special identity more than just the functional value. Each design of the sling is worn with a very distinct outfit. So the kind of sling bag that suits you the best, would depend on the kind of outfit you usually like to carry around. Having said that, the basic rule of the versatility of any type of bag comes from the simplicity of the design.

In our humble opinion though, a simple, minimal, design made with a classic material is easy to blend with most of the outfits and moods. For that reason, a simple and modest sling bag makes sure not to stand out but to blend in and complement the outfit through the choice of color and texture of the material.  

Leather sling bags in a tan or black color should be your all-weather, all-purpose, and any-outfit sling bag. Leather sling bags can be expensive but they are also the perfect go-to bags that you can always carry with you, a no-brainer for any outfit and any occasion. Which reduces the number of bags you need to keep changing.

This is why the collection of sling bags from The Bicyclist is the epitome of simplicity, timelessness, and versatility. All you need to do is make a choice based on the number of things you would like to carry around with you. Based on your need for the number of essentials you are comfortable with, we have a variety of options that are all handcrafted with premium leather with an in-depth eye for the details that give them a very expensive and luxurious look.
