Welcome to the review of the Tumi Alpha Bravo Monterey Sling

Quick Take

A small, sling-style backpack that exudes quality. The Tumi Monterey Sling has specialized compartments for the items you are most likely to want to carry in a small pack. Made with high end materials and uncompromising build quality this bag makes you look good and gives you the compact convenience you need.




Materials and Build Quality

Ballistic nylon, leather, nylon straps, waterproof pocket lining, and heavy duty zippers make up the base materials of these bag.

Ballistic nylon is one of the best materials you can have in a soft-sided bag. Only leather can equal it. Leather is used in this bag too, and not only as an accent. The bottom of this bag is protected in leather.

Top class materials is complemented by solid build quality. Build quality so good that it is immediately obvious when looking at this bag, other people won't miss it too.

Specialized Storage

This bag has four storage areas.

Nearest the back is the storage for mini tablets.

The bad news is it isn't a big space but that's also the good news. You don't need a bulky pack all of the time, you just want something light, and versatile and just enough space. The Tumi Monterey Sling has all that, plus it looks great.

Comparing The Tumi Monterey Sling Backpack


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

VS

The Adidas Capital Sling gives you significantly more space than the Tumi Monterey Sling. To make up for the increased load the Adidas Capital Sling incorporates LoadSpring technology in its strip.

You also have to give up the professional mein of the Tumi Monterey for a sportier look. Goodbye ballistic nylon, helo polyester.

Both bags have a special space for a tablet.

It all comes down to how much you want to bring and if the sporty look is something you won't mind projecting.


The Tumi Alpha Bravo Monterey Sling vs. the Leaper Canvas Message Sling Bag

VS

If you like the Tumi Monterey Sling's business-like look but balk at the price, then you should consider the Leaper Canvass Message Sling Bag.

Still a small bag, the Leaper presents the a look that is in line with the Tumi Monterey. You will have to exchange the ballistic nylon for washed canvas.

The Leaper Sling also has more pockets than the Tumi.


The Tumi Alpha Bravo Monterey Sling vs. the SUNVP Tactical Military Sling

VS

The SUNVP Military Sling is a sling backpack that takes a military slant. Essentially what you get is a sling pack with PALS webbing that makes the bag MOLLE compatible. This means that you can attach extensions to the bag. Here are some examples:

molle water bottle molle pouch molle flashlight molle utility pouch


The bag has a bit more space than the Tumi Monterey sling but is a step down in terms of looks. Material and build quality are also not as good as the Monterey Sling.
