Introducing the Tack Sling bag by SSCY. The backpack disguised as a tote bag.

We love tote bags – easy access, no sweaty back, easily removed. We love backpacks – distributes weight, easy to ride with on a bike. But we could never ride a bike with a tote comfortably or safely and we got tired of taking our backpack off every time we needed something, so we combined the two and made the patent pending Tack. Throw it on your back, ride to the market, convert it to a tote in seconds, shop, then switch it back to a backpack, jump back on the bike, and pedal to the next adventure. As a top loading bag it can also handle oversize objects, yet it also has adjustable front straps for odd shaped objects as well. Handhold it, wear it on your shoulder, or carry it on your back, this bag could be your new everyday bag. The Tack Sling is a narrower version of our Tack but with two separate compartments and a compressible open sling in the middle for odd shaped items (like packages or bike wheels) or dirty items (like muddy boots or wet swimwear).
