Hit the highway with the WaterField Moto Front Sling


Summer is here, and whether it’s hitting the road or just attending your favorite convention, the perfect bag makes all the difference. While clearly designed for motorcycle commuters, GeekDad’s latest fave WaterField is also designed to be the perfect tote for cunt season.

Available in waxed canvas with chocolate leather – my favorite style, as evidenced by my current daily wear – black ballistic nylon with black or chocolate leather, and an ultra-sleek all-nylon design, WaterField Motorcycle Front Strap is a front carry bag for those who need extra storage space without too much extra bulk. Its 15-by-7.5-inch footprint has a depth of 4 inches, or an approximate volume of 7.4 liters, and it has an additional exterior pocket for smaller flat-packed items.

Both compartments are sealed with YKK waterproof zippers to keep your gear out of the rain…or just the occasional spill on the convention floor. What you keep in these compartments is up to you, but our friends in San Francisco have sized the bag to accommodate biker necessities like:

  • Wheel lock
  • Multi-function tool
  • Hex key set
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • A bottle of water (horizontally)
  • Earplugs
  • Wallet
  • Call
  • Keys
  • ipad mini
  • Extra space for other essentials

Personally, I think this model is perfect for housing a Nintendo Switch and Joy-Cons, a USB-C charging adapter/cable, your glasses case, a cleaning cloth, and snacks for the road, but that’s probably just me living my best GeekDad life.

Everything you put in it stays secure and comfortable thanks to the self-contained strap system, grippy shoulder padding and auto-sensing Fidlock magnetic buckle. This means you can put it on and take it off easily, whether you’re sitting comfortably in your vehicle or just wandering through the crowded hallways of Dragon Con.

The motorcycle front strap is available to order now from WaterField Designs for $179. The next batch of products is slated to ship on July 29, giving you plenty of time to plan your next big summer adventure.
