Ditch large, bulky, hard to wear backpacks for BirdieBlue’s sleek, sustainably made Sling Bag. The Sling comes in Birdie’s signature three color design and holds everything you need in four, well organized pockets. The Sling’s largest pocket fits a water bladder, a tablet, and selfie stick for documenting all your adventures. The hidden zip pocket inside the large compartment allows you to store any values, credit cards, or your ID. The smaller middle pocket is the perfect size for your phone, snacks, and sunscreen. And the smallest zip pocket on the front ensures you never have to dig for your keys again. And last but certainly not least, the Sling Bag waistband makes sure the bag isn't shimmyin' around as you tackle your favorite actvities. Now all you have to do is choose your favorite color combo and get out and enjoy some #birdieblueadventures!

My sling from Birdie Blue is my new favorite bag! I LOVE the colors and how much it can hold. There are so many different zippered pockets to keep my phone/wallet/keys separated, and I love the slit at the top to thread my water bladder through- there's even an elastic to hold the hydration tube in place. I can fit my DSLR camera in here when I'm out hiking AND there's a waist strap for added support! 10/10 recommend!

Adorable bag!

I’m a first time Birdie Blue shopper and I’m so glad I found you! I purchased the sling bag in the hot pink/purple/white combo. I got it to carry my son’s meds while skiing but it’s a perfect everyday bag, too. The over shoulder clip is a bit heavy, but at least i know it will hold everything in place. Can’t wait to purchase another style!

The perfect bag for a day hike, Nordic ski, travel or concert!

I love this bag! It's just the right size to fit everything I need for a day outing. The details and craftsmanship are beautiful and it feels like it is built to last. Thank you, Birdie Blue, for turning our old ski gear into fun and useful bags!

Wonderful Gift!

Bought this at a holiday show in Burlington VT as a Christmas gift for my out of state nephew who encouraged me to support a local artist. His thank you note says it all:
Deb, you did! You killed it this year. I didn’t know I needed a sling bag but it’s like my new purse - comes everywhere with me. I think it’s a great local buy and I was excited and surprised so thanks again!


Women owned company! I love the community of Upcycling, and Kate does a great job. I highly recommend her products, they are sturdily built, and made with pride. You can’t go wrong.
