The Teardrop Sport.

The sporty version of the popular Teardrop Sling Bag. I have had so many requests for a “guy version” of the Teardrop and so here he is-

The Teardrop Sport comes in two sizes and is designed to be a lightweight crossbody backpack, durable, and most of all extremely comfortable to carry. Designed for the guys but equally handy for the girl on the go.

Small Size Measures: 15” Tall, 8” Wide (at the bottom), and 5” Deep
Large Size Measures: 19” Tall, 10” Wide (at the bottom), and 6” Deep

BEST OF ALL the Teardrop Sport is easy to assemble. A new and more simple construction method that eliminates the drop-in style lining, but still offers the same large opening for easy access to the inside. No bias bound seams, easy birthing though a pocket so the interior of your bag is as pretty as the exterior. 

The Teardrop Sport Backpack sling makes the perfect day bag for outings, hiking, day trips, cycling, the gym, weekend travel, or for hunters with a strap designed to provide all day comfort and flexibility.

The exterior offers a large front zipper pocket for easy access to the essentials. A water bottle pocket along with a zipper pocket on the side for your phone, keys, cash, or other small items. More organization on the inside with 3 more slip pockets that can be divided as you wish to offer even more pockets for sorting your stuff.
