Kickstarter Highlight: FARER DESIGN DAYFARER Sling
Crowdfunding is fast becoming the world’s go-to platform for new releases. But do you ever find it hard to cut through the noise and pin down the ones worth your hard-earned? Well, that’s where this sponsored series comes in. We’re vetting carry Kickstarters for you, digging up the facts, and shedding light on the ones we think are worth a closer look.
This week’s selection: FARER DESIGN and their DAYFARER Sling.
The essentials without excess
When you need to carry a lot, it makes sense to have a large bag. But when you want to travel light and fast with a small load, it’s an unnecessary hassle to haul around bulky carry. With this in mind, FARER DESIGN set about designing a bag for packing light, moving quickly and easily accessing gear whenever you need it.
Meet the DAYFARER Sling.
Rather than standing out for all the wrong reasons, the DAYFARER Sling blends in for maximum versatility. The low-profile design looks sleek with a touch of elegant sportiness to it, ready for both active or more laid-back use.
It also offers a choice of carry options to fit in with your lifestyle and changing needs. Carry it as a sling bag or shoulder bag or alternatively remove the shoulder strap and use it as a compact briefcase for work settings.
You don’t want to waste time getting to your gear. Thanks to the DAYFARER Sling’s quick access, you don’t have to. The bag features a magnetic Fidlock snap buckle that allows for easy closure and access on the fly.
Additionally, the bag’s shoulder strap features a magnetic Fidlock V-buckle for quick yet secure strap closure and opening. And with the ability to quickly slide the bag round to your front, you can get to gear in a jiffy without having to take the bag off.
Gear where you need it, when you need it
The DAYFARER Sling is designed to efficiently handle the essentials. And that includes keeping them tidy and within easy reach when you need them. The bag offers a range of organization options including a padded tablet pocket and interior zippered and slip pockets. There’s also a magnetic key clip so you can save time on rummaging and get on with your day.
How about quick-access items? The zippered back pocket provides an ideal stash spot, with a further zippered pocket on the front under the flap. And if you need to carry a bit extra? No problem, the DAYFARER is expandable to pack a larger load if required.
A quality build for a quality experience
Many bags are let down by their poor build quality. But not the DAYFARER Sling. The bag’s PU-coated 1680D ballistic nylon exterior is tough enough to handle years of hardy use, while protecting your gear from the elements. And for added weather protection, the bag also features top-notch water-resistant YKK zippers. The protection extends inside the sling too, with a PU-coated 210D ripstop nylon lining for added durability while keeping weight to a minimum.
Just right with just enough
The DAYFARER Sling lets you carry just what you need without unnecessary excess. There’s just enough size without it being too bulky for compact loads. There’s just enough organization without becoming cluttered. It’s a bag that celebrates simplicity, efficiency and versatility for formal and informal environments alike. If it sounds like it could be right for your needs, snap up your very own through the DAYFARER Sling Kickstarter campaign which runs until 15 December 2018.
Note: this is a sponsored series, but only the best candidates are given this feature placement.
Above are the facts, but there’s always a little risk when backing a crowdfunder, so keep that in mind before you decide to back/purchase.
