Reasons to consider the Adidas Capital Sling backpack for your next backpack:

  • You want a big sling backpack. One that has as much space as a regular backpack.

  • You need a water resistant bag. Maybe you had the unfortunate experience of your pack getting rained on and you are looking for better protection from the elements.

  • You need a 'front body' bag. Maybe you're already using a backpack but you need to carry more stuff so you need a bag you can carry in front of your body. A sling backpack is perfect - just swing it over to the front.

  • You want Adidas quality. This German brand has a great track record with you and you know that money spent on an Adidas product is money well spent.



Introducing The Capital Sling


Adidas Capital Sling Backpack

The Adidas Capital Sling Backpack is the second generation of a successful design by Adidas. The first generation of this backpack being the Adidas Rydell Sling Backpack .

If it looks big that's because it is. This is a sling backpack that you can consider as a replacement for your regular backpack.


Material

The material is 600-denier polyester done in a honeycomb design. Here's a close up:

Compared to cotton or wool, polyester is extremely durable and stain resistant.

This polyester material has a hydro shield, making it water resistant, a quality that complements the sporty look of this sling backpack.


Storage

The Capital Sling helps you organize with four pockets. Well, three pockets and a pouch.

Here's the pouch:

Where the yellow circle is in the image above, just unclip that and underneath is a big slip pouch. Now let's have a look at the other pockets of the Adidas Capital Sling.

The zipper where the key is hanging is your quick access pocket. Just swing the bag over to the front and get what you need, quick and easy.

The headphones are hanging out of your main storage compartment. This is big enough that you will not miss your old backpack.

The tablet is shown tucked into a secondary compartment in case you want to keep some items separate, like, in this example, electronic gadgets.


The Sling

One advantage of a sling is that you can move the entire bag from your back to your front without taking off the straps.

Since your looking at a big bag the strap comes with LoadSpring technology.

LoadSpring gives the strap an elasticity that will help with a full load. You also get this on the strap.

A small zipper pouch for - whatever. You'll think of something, something like this always proves to be handy.





Comparing The Adidas Capital Sling


The Adidas Capital Sling Backpack vs. the Tumi Alpha Bravo Monterey Sling

VS

The Tumi Monterey Sling asks you to give up the space of the Adidas Capital Sling for some posh materials and an office vibe.

The Adidas Capital Sling trumps the Monterey when utility is important to you. Unlike the Monterey Sling, the Adidas, true to its pedigree, gives you a sporty image.


The Adidas Capital Sling Backpack vs. the Under Armour Compel Sling Backpack

VS

The Compel by Under Armour presents a valid challenge to the Capital Sling by giving you space plus Under Armour's water repellent UA Storm technology and space for up to a 15 inch laptop.

The Capital Sling Backpack fights back with its unique pouch-clip design, secondary compartment and LoadSpring technology.

Who wins this fight is up to you.


The Adidas Capital Sling Backpack vs. the Leaper Canvas One Strap Sling Cross Body Messenger Bag

Not only does the Leaper Sling give you a vintage look; it's design is just like a regular backpack but with a sling.

On the other hand, a conventional look might not be what you want. You'll never find the distinctively modern shape of the Capital Sling being referred to as 'vintage'.



The following video is a bit of a negative review of the Capital Sling. Don't let that put you off, since, in this video, the Adidas Capital Sling is being evaluated as a concealed carry bag and that would probably not be your purpose for the bag. It's worthwhile to view this video to give you an idea of the dimensions of the bag and the features.
