After a lot of experience with sling packs I made the decision to downsize. I was in the market for a small pack to serve as a baby bag as our daughter was just born. I wanted something that could be converted into an EDC pack in the future after the need for a baby bag expired. I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on this particular pack so I was very pleased when I found the SOG Bandit. SOG typically makes lower priced gear. They cater to the budget prepper. This naturally makes their product lack in quality sometimes, so I was hesitant. At this price however, I figured i’d give it a shot.
I didn’t plan to use this pack in the field, so I figured it would be okay as it wouldn’t be getting abused much. The SOG Bandit is a great sized sling pack. When it comes to sling packs the reason I downsized is due to the weight that applied to the shoulders after extended carry. I mention that in my review of the Condor Sling Pack. The Condor Sling Pack is great if you don’t mind the discomfort from long-term carry but if you’re looking for a similar two strap version they also make the Mission Pack, which is the same pack with 2 straps.
Overall the SOG Bandit is phenomenal for the price, and i’m actually very happy with the quality. With anything in life, you get what you pay for. If I did put this pack in the field and use it in some high stress environments I don’t have any doubts that it would perform as well as it’s supposed too. You can’t, and shouldn’t expect a piece of gear to do more than it is designed to do. With that being said, this pack is perfect for an Urban EDC pack, or a tactical baby bag.
