Waterfly Messenger sling bag

Sharing is caring!

I’ve already reviewed one of the sling bags from Waterfly — the Mini sling bag. As the name suggests, it’s quite small and perfect for everyday use.

The Waterfly Messenger sling bag is larger and more spacious than the Waterfly Mini sling bag.

The Messenger sling bag is great not only as an everyday bag, but, unlike the Waterfly Mini sling bag, is also perfect for commute. Thanks to its size and multiple compartments it can hold all your electronics and essentials.

Waterfly Messenger Sling Bag is Roomy

What I like the most about this sling bag is its capacity. It can easily accommodate my 12” MacBook in its case. And there’s even room for a couple of books and some everyday essentials, such as hand cream, chargers, phone and wallet.

When my laptop wasn’t in the bag, I could fit a few books and a thermos easily. And there was still a plenty of space left for small everyday items.

Because of its roominess the Waterfly Messenger sling bag is great for day trips as well.

Just like with the Mini sling bag, one end of the shoulder strap is detachable. It can be attached to either of the D rings at the bottom of the bag, depending on what shoulder you prefer to carry the sling bag.
