The Nomad Sling Bag looks unusual but it's made to outperform and outclass any mass-produced, lazy-stitched nylon "sports" bag you want to challenge it with. The Nomad was conceived under the ideals of old-school military equipment that needed to be tough, practical and resistant to battle. Who's got your back: Sgt Barnes the WW2 Commando or Lionel the lycra wearing bicycle courier? Cover me Barnsy!
Made to make sense
The Nomad is a mid-sized sling bag with a bad-ass look. It’s conceived as a day bag or commuting bag and is large enough to accommodate a 13” laptop or iPad. Designed to be worn across your body on either the front or the back, it also has both left and right wearing options. This is a highly recommended motorcycle bag.
Significantly the Nomad XL is constructed from 16oz beeswaxed cotton canvas and features genuine, solid brass hardware and true vegetable-tanned, top-grain leather. Each Nomad XL is handmade in small batches. It's not mass-produced. It's made with meticulous attention to detail and care.
It was January 2019 and the Vietnam monsoon was unloading on Da nang City. Gale force winds and rain so thick it posed me a drowning hazard as I rode headlong into it on my 250 Yamaha scooter. My Nomad XL was strapped across my front and we were both taking a bath! This was not what it was designed for. When I finally got home I unzipped the Nomad expecting to find frogs and lily pads but the interior of the Nomad was dry and so was my gear. Thoughtful design, 100% cotton and a protective layer of beeswax had beaten this extreme weather. I wouldn't recommend this kind of activity day after day but it re-affirmed to me that old-tech doesn't mean obsolete. *The Nomad XL is water-resistant, not water-proof.
