Designed for urban carry, the PILUM™ VSlinger™ offers the same levels of functionalities & ergonomics as our popular JAVELIN VSlinger, with a refined urban-covert look.
The shoulder-specific asymmetrical design stores your gear securely both upright and sideways. A quick swing of the pack to your front, pull open its large S-shaped zipper, and have instant access to your gear.
The 3"-wide shoulder strap with padded breathable mesh delivers great support and comfort. There is a hidden slip pocket against your body and a 2” Duraflex® Double-Lock buckle for added security. You can unlock the buckle with single hand, or have the double-lock feature disabled by adjusting its latch. The stabilizer holds the PILUM close to your body, and stops the pack from shifting when you need stability.
With its 1,000-D mil-grade Cordura® fabric coated with Dupont® Teflon protector and lockable #10 YKK® zippers, this bag can handle any rough conditions.
Padded main compartment and three dividers provide extra protection for your EDC (everyday carry) items, tablets, and photography gear. A dedicated laptop sleeve fits most 15" laptops* and tablets. High-visibility lightweight 210-D ripstop nylon interior helps you find accessories in low-light conditions.
Many organizing pockets on the inside, and a CCW-ready (concealed carry) zippered pocket on the outside. The front vertical webbing with shock-cord provides an area to stuff a jacket. The rear compartment is both CCW- and hydration-ready for a 3-liter water bladder.
Exterior PALS/MOLLE attachment points are found on both sides and the bottom of the PILUM, giving you the option of expansion. Plenty of interior loop surfaces for attaching hook-and-loop accessories. With 19 well-throughout pockets and slots for your personal items, EDCs, and CCWs, the PILUM VSlinger is your ultimate urban-carry slingpack!
*Fits a 2015 15" Apple MacBook Pro, or a 2015 MacBook Air.
FAQ: If I am right-handed, should I choose the RIGHT-Shoulder or LEFT-Shoulder version?
Answer: It depends. Choosing a shoulder to carry a "shoulder-specific" slingpack is usually a personal preference. Whether you are right- or left-handed, you can wear a slingpack on either shoulder as long as it feels "comfortable" to you. Statistically, 60-65% of our right-handed clients opt for a left-shoulder-carry slingpack, and vice versa. There are a few things that you might want to consider when making such decision: (1) Is there another item that you must carry on a specific shoulder? Example, a shoulder carried rifle. If so, you go with the opposite shoulder to carry your slingpack. (2) Do you have a bad shoulder? If so, please wear your slingpack on the opposite side. (3) Do you carry bulky item on one side hip that will interfere with shifting a slingpack to your front? The reason being, a LEFT-shoulder-carry slingpack will swing from your BACK, travel across your RIGHT hip, then to your FRONT. Therefore, if you must carry something bulky on your right-hip, please go with a right-shoulder-carry slingpack (and vice versa). (4) Do you carry something in the bag that must be operated with a specific hand? For example, most cameras are designed for right-hand use, so a photographer might prefer the RIGHT-Shoulder version because it gives him/her better access to cameras using right hand, while allowing left hand to change lens or return the slingpack to the back.

I use this bag as my "Get Home Bag." The bag itself is quite comfortable and has just enough room for about 12-15 pounds of gear. The lack of a hip belt allows for easy access of a concealed weapon in the appendix position.
It took years of experimentation but I have finally found a bag that is both functionl and practical. The quality of this Vanquest product shines like a diamond up a Billy goats butt!
The inside is YUUGE! I use this pack for hiking/fishing/around town stuff/school/ dog stuff.. Its the best. It is also perfect for carrying my dslr safely on all of these endevors. Excellent build very durable, everyone tells me how totes jelly they are.
I have a natak (for smaller loads), sitka, and kodiak (for larger loads) from Maxpedition but I'm thinking of selling the sitka and kodiak now after getting this baby from Vanquest. Its a lot like the javelin but it is a little larger and a little slimmer. I got the premium black camo and have to say it is the nicest looking sling bag I've ever seen. Its really a lot like the javelin only different configurations on the front and less attachment through molle options. You can still shock cord down anything you like though but I think its best for something light like a rain coat or hat. Everything about this bag is Vanquest quality and it is very comfy, a little more than the javelin because it rides a little higher on my back and has a little slimmer profile. I just gifted my javelin because they are pretty similar, much preferring the more discreet look of the Pilum. By the way, I thought I'd prefer the two pouches on the front that the javelin had over the one of the pilum but I was wrong. The one pouch of the pilum does the job really well and is quite large, easily holding my iPad mini in its case, for example. Well done, Vanquest!
