Vertx Commuter Sling

Original price was: $226.99.Current price is: $195.99.

The Commuter Sling 2.0 is purpose built to be fast and light, but still carry the essentials daily.

The Commuter Sling is the larger brother to the Transit sling. This sling bag is packed with the same features as the transit sling, but is just a few inches larger all around. While it is a bit larger, it is still a comfortable discreet size. The overall size and storage capability is very similar to the EDC Ready Pack. Sling bags are advantageous in their quick deployment and speed. The Commuter sling shines in this realm.

A few notable features of the Commuter Sling:
  • Although small in size, the main compartment is spacious and features a zipper pouch and various pockets
  • Main compartment opens via YKK zipper and is lined with loop
  • Main compartment can be used to fit small laptops (13-15″). MacBook Airs/Macbook Pros/Ipads are perfect for this bag.
  • Front most compartment is lined with MOLLE and loop: Perfect for medical gear or other EDC items.
  • CCW compartment is lined fully with loop. Perfect for CCW storage or spare magazines/important documents.
  • Various color options designed to be functional and not stand out in public areas
  • Intuitive layout of pockets means easy organization of your essential items
  • Adjustable shoulder strap and waist strap that can be used for extra stability of the bag
  • Compatible many micro rifles and medium length rifles up to around 7.5/8″. Note: This will depend on muzzle device and folding stock setup.

The Commuter Sling is perfect for the prepared citizen. Our desire is to see citizens armed and capable of being formidable. When violence or medical emergencies erupt, having the right gear on tap is critical. Whether for EDC or for serious firepower, the Commuter Sling 2.0 delivers value in a discreet manner. Blend in while being extremely prepared for anything. Be formidable.

The Commuter Sling is built to service those who need more gear but still need to be discreet.

The Commuter Sling blends in. When carrying a backpack and firearms, a major component is blending in. Massive bags that look like 3-4 day hiking packs stand out. Guitar cases, tennis racket cases, etc. all look suspicious. Having a quality, well designed, fashionable sling bag blends in. That means you focus more on your world, and less on what people think about your load out.

For situations where speed of deployment is a must, a sling bag shines.

One of the key benefits of a sling bag is the sheer speed of deploying medical kit or firearms. Vertx sling bags are designed specifically for this task. The Commuter slings size allows for rifle carry up to 7.5/8″ barrel lengths. The CCW compartment is perfect for concealed pistols or our spare magazine shingles. The front pouch is ideal for medical and other important items.

Medium sized sling bag, packed with a ton of organizational features.

What we love most about the Commuter Sling is the fact that it is such a simple layout. This bag is well laid out and well designed. When our team is looking to carry larger firearms but still wants a sling bag for rapid deployment, we look to the Commuter sling. This bag features 3 main storage compartments, much like the Transit Sling 2.0. The rear most compartment is the CCW spot. Fit a pistol or spare mags or even important documents here. The middle compartment is the main compartment. This section can be used for office supplies, notebooks, laptops or even a rifle folded. The front most compartment is ideal for medical or any gear that needs deployed quickly.

We believe that citizens should carry tools to become formidable. Become an asset to your community by training and equipping yourself with lifesaving tools.

Consider adding our Magazine shingles to your bag order (3X Rifle, 2X rifle/1X pistol, 4X pistol)

1.) Are Vertx Bags really that great? 

There are plenty of quality bags on the market. There are also many…not so great options. We bought our first Vertx bags back around 2015/2016. We have been a customer of Vertx for years and we have used nearly all of their backpacks, slings, and packs in our personal lives. Our team quite literally carries Vertx bags on us every single day. There is a reason: They are extremely well built, they are laid out well, they can take immense abuse, and the don’t look tactical. The last thing we want is to have bags that look tactical or are laid out poorly. The Vertx bags in general are well built, well thought out packs.

2.) Are these bags drop shipped? 

No. We stock these physically in our warehouse and we only stock models that we have had the opportunity to get our hands on and use. We stock these bags so we can be sure to service you the way we know you want to be treated: Faster shipping, better service.

3.) Are Vertx bags made in the USA?  

No. Vertx bags are manufactured in Vietnam.

4.) Who should consider the Commuter Sling??  

Folks that love the idea of the Transit sling 2.0 but feel like they need a larger sling bag should consider the Commuter 2.0. The commuter offers a few more inches of useable space. Overall layout is very similar to the Transit Sling 2.0. If you carry a larger laptop, larger pistol, more medical or other gear, the Commuter Sling might be a good fit for you.

5.) What size rifle will fit into the Transit Sling?

In a world where we see more and more violence, our team desires to always have the upper hand. The Transit sling easily fits most 5″ 300 BLK rifles that are folded. This is our primary use for the transit sling: micro rifles and medical. The MOLLE and loop inside the front panel aids in storage of medical equipment. Users could also use the main compartment for smaller laptops (13-14″) and the CCW compartment for a holstered pistol. Although small, this bag is packed with mighty features.

6.) What is the best way to carry spare magazines? 

We offer several variations of our mag shingles. We have a triple rifle version, a 2 Rifle 1 Pistol, and a Quad Pistol shingle for discreet bag carry. For this particular bag the shingles/spare bags work best in the concealed carry compartment (closest compartment toward users back).

7.) Who should steer clear of the Commuter sling?

Folks who need maximum storage might not find a home with the transit sling 2.0. This bag is purpose built to be small and lightweight/simple. For bags that hold maximum capacity and larger rifles, users could consider the Gamut 2.0 and/or the Commuter Sling. Another point to mention is that some folks might not like a sling bag vs a double strap bag. This is especially true with heavier sling bags. They can sometimes be less comfortable when compared to a double strap bag. For longer trips or more hours carrying gear, a double strap bag might be better.
