I love this stylin' bag so much! It's really great for holding the glass water bottle that I just purchased, as well. Looks exactly as the pictures suggest, and there are no defects. I am very happy! Shipping was a little delayed due to two separate shipments that I didn't expect, but I received it within 11 days at least, so that's all that matters, in that case!
My son is attending a camp at the local Zoo this week and they recommended a strap or bag to carry a water bottle so the kids can keep it with them all day and not lose it. This sling is perfect. It's light and holds a variety of bottle sizes. He is using the 18oz kleen kanteen. He doesn't lose the bottle this way and has his hands free for activities. It save my sanity and keeps him hydrated in the 100+ degree heat this week. The strap was little long for a 7 year old, but I just tied a knot at the top to adjust the length and now it's great for a cross body sling for a child just over 4 feet. The Zoo emphasizes reusable and trash free lunches/snacks so this fits right in and was admired by several parents at drop-off.
There is only one thing I would change. The shoulder strap needs to be longer for us "big guys" but then it needs to be adjustable for the smaller people.
Otherwise a good product and it does what we want it to very well!
I bought two of these, for my husband and myself. We used them for the first time while doing day hikes in the Smokey Mountain National Park. They worked great. They're sturdy, yet comfortable to wear.
This sling is fabulous! My 40oz Kleen Kanteen fits in nicely and the strap is plenty long enough to carry the sling diagonally over my shoulder so my hands are completely free. No more trying to carry a 40oz water bottle on my little finger - hooray!
I originally got one of these slings for myself and it worked so nicely that I purchased two more to give as gifts. I like to use Klean Kanteen water bottles, the size I carry depends on what I'm doing. This sling will carry any of my Kanteens, even the 40oz or the insulated. It even has a nice little pocket to store my phone, keys & ID. Very handy to have around. Much like the other reviewer, I would love to have the ability to adjust the strap length but I can easily knot it to shorten it up a bit.
My daughter, husband and I always carry water bottles with us everywhere but some tasks take both hands. This bottle sling is especially great for taking water with you while mowing pastures and carrying grain,etc.. We love it.
I was used to carrying my water bottle in a neoprene sleeve but it always had to be in a tote bag etc. or I had to carry it in hand. With the new bottle sling, I can carry even a large bottle cross body and free up my hands. Sometimes I would avoid carrying my supply of water because it was so inconvenient. The only thing I would improve would be to put a buckle on it that would allow you to change the length of the strap as it is very long. The material is so slim, now I usually knot it to shorten it.
