Mission Workshop The Spar Sling Pack

Lightweight Weatherproof Sling Bag For Any Adventure

The Spar is a lightweight, weatherproof sling pack designed to carry the daily essentials. One of our most compact bags, it can be worn in either single-strap sling configuration or as a backpack with optional backpack harness.

In sling configuration, the Spar can be worn on either the front or back of the body and has dual-access capability through top flap or side-zip entry points. The sling strap is equipped with custom quick-adjust aluminum hardware and the side-zip allows for access to the main compartment without doffing the pack.

The Spar is available in either ultralight VX-07 diamond ripstop from Dimension Polyant or 500D Multicam® Cordura® black camo. Our 500D Multicam fabric is very durable with a refined handfeel and matte finish, while VX-07 is one of the most advanced textiles in the world with virtually unmatched abrasion and tear resistance per gram weight.

The Spar is Arkiv®-system compatible and can be combined with an R2/R6/R8 or Radian pack to create a versatile travel system.

Additional design features include weatherproof construction, YKK Aquaguard zippers, dual-access 8-liter main compartment with microfleece-lined iPad compartment, zippered front organizational compartment with key clip, padded back panel, and magnetic Fidlock main flap buckle.

Made by hand in small batches in the USA.
