GearBest Crossbody Bag After 4 Months [Story & Review]

GearBest Crossbody Sling Bag  - The bag hanging from a door.

The Story

I DJ, and the progression from big square heavy record crates to CD binders and now hard drives has been an interesting evolution when it comes to DJ bags. I only have to carry my hard drive, headphones, and adaptors. The problem was I was using a big bag to take little stuff, and in transit, I found it to be a nuisance. I started looking on Amazon and found nothing that would actually work until my cousin recommended me to a site called +GearBest. I knew nothing of the company or their products, and I was really reluctant to shop away from my usual place, but I eventually gave them a try and purchased the Backpack Crossbody Tactical Bag for a pretty inexpensive price.   

Fast Forward four months later. 

Let's check out how everything did in the review.

The Cons
  • No peace of mind on rainy days. 
  • The main and front lower compartments have holes for possibly additional elastic loops or ventilation which goes right through the bottom of both main compartments. 
  • Not water resistant 
  • The additional support for the shoulder strap folds inward at times making it a bit of a challenge putting it on while on the go.  
  • The plastic buckles feel a bit fragile.

The Pros | Benefits 

  • The 600D oxford fabric is very durable.
  • The ambidextrous sling design is excellent. 
  • There are no unexpected breaks from the zippers. 
  • The sling strap and plastic clasp have held up with no wear and tear.  
  • The main compartment has three convenient multi-layer compartments. 
  • The inner material is great. 
  • The shipping was free and took approximately two weeks to get to my home in Western Canada.

Would I repurchase it?


Would I recommend it to a friend?

Yes, if they didn't mind the holes in the main compartments.
