Return of the Cafe Racers - Riding Gear – Icon 1000 Slingbag

Riding Gear – Icon 1000 Slingbag

If your search for the perfect motorcycle backpack is coming up trumps, perhaps it’s time to change tack.  This cross-body, single strap pack ticks all the right boxes. Icon 1000 makes gear that never fails to hold up and their new Slingbag is no exception.

It all starts with a near-indestructible Cordura fabric chassis and a waterproof main compartment with a 12-litre capacity. The roll-top closure keeps the rain out and the quick access compartment out front lets you swing the bag around to easily access your essential EDC — phone, wallet, keys — as needed.

The extra wide strap is padded for comfort, as is the back, and the secondary waist strap stabilizes the pack so it won’t swing or slip as you ride. A Fidlock magnetic chest closure keeps this motorcycle backpack secure while still being easy to operate and storage will never be an issue. In addition to the 12-litre holding capacity, the Icon 1000 Slingbag has a laptop compartment, comes with an ICON tool roll for your tools, and features Molle webbing on the exterior for attaching additional items as required.

Icon serves their Slingbag up in an all-black package with a low-profile design, making this cross-body, single strap motorcycle backpack the perfect example of how to do bike luggage right.
