The Vertx Navigator Sling Bag is our GO TO for night vision helmet transport.

The Vertx Navigator Sling Bag is an elegant, simple, and effective way to store and transport your night vision helmet and PVS-14 or binos. For years we were hunting for a high quality bag that would suit this role. Finally, the Navigator does just that and more.

Compact, Discreet, and effective sling bag.

The Navigator steps away from the more traditional sling bags from Vertx. It is very different than the Transit sling or commuter sling bags. This is largely due to the design that is more “satchel” like than sling bag. Additionally, this bag can be used for day to day EDC tasks and trips.

Small design but don’t let that fool you. Storage is plentiful.

The Navigator has a front pocket that features loop for hook accessories. The middle is the “main compartment”. This compartment also features loop as well a laptop pouch (or notebook pouch) and a zipper compartment for storage. The CCW compartment features a slot for a ballistic insert as well as ample space for your EDC pistol of choice.

Comfort, Style, and capability.

The Navigator sling features a 3D textured back design for comfort. Additionally there are two grab handle points for moving or carrying the bag off body. The strap is wide and well designed. Attachment of the sling is accomplished with two large and robust buckles. Sewing quality is amazing as always. Vertx creates amazingly high quality bags that are built for hard use.

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)

Need a larger sling bag? Consider the Commuter Sling, or the Commuter XL.

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: The folks at Vertx make an amazing bag.  A Vertx Bag can take immense abuse, and it won’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 manufactures their bags in Vietnam.

4.) Who should consider the Navigator Sling Bag?  

The Navigator Sling bag is perfect to store a helmet with your night vision unit. That is our preferred use of this bag. This bag will fit MOST bump helmets, and we have tested it with the Team Wendy EXFIL helmets and Hard Head Veterans Bumps. A team Wendy with peltor hearing protection attached fits perfectly, then we simply place our NV unit INSIDE the helmet for protection. Sometimes we will use a cloth bag or extra materials to keep the unit from moving around. Aside from helmet storage, this bag can be used for a day-to-day EDC bag to carry smaller items, notebooks, magazines, and your EDC pistol.

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 (13-15″) 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 Navigator Bag?

Folks who need maximum storage might not find a home with the Navigator Sling Bag. This bag is purpose built to be small and lightweight/simple and more of a satchel design. For bags that hold maximum capacity and larger rifles, users could consider the Gamut 2.0 and/or the Commuter Sling.
