    Western Flyer Sling on Ebay

    Just wanted to let people know I've put my Western Flyer sling up on ebay. Recently hurt my back, and I don't get enough support with the sling. I love the bag, but have switched to an aeronaut with waist belt for the time being. We'll see how it goes. Hope I don't have to make the switch to a wheelie!

    How old is this bag? How did you get this with only one backpack strap? Is there another backpack strap to go with it?
    Owner of: Brain Bag backpack (Black), Field Journal Notebook (Blue), Snake Charmer (Small, Orange), Super Ego briefcase (Black / Indigo / Steel) with Reflective Strip, Brain Cell (Steel), Horizontal Freudian Slip, various Organizer Pouches and Key Straps, and a Side Effect (Black / Wassabi) worn as a belt-style hip-pack.


      When the WF was first introduced, (2 yrs ago? or so?), it was designed to be a sling bag with only the one strap. The backpack variant was subsequently introduced. Shortly thereafter, the sling was discontinued in favor of the 2 strap design - presumably because of popularity and demand. As a congenital early adopter, I have one of those original WFs. It's a great bag. Since I am more of a messenger bag kind of person (as opposed to a backpacker-type), the sling has never been an issue for me.
