In the review of a satchel of Spigen SGP New Coated Backpack I directed attention to its small thickness and in reply received from 1 of readers, the companion of uKho, council to get accustomed to production of the Swedish company Thule. Having looked narrowly, found even more thin decision — Thule Crossover Sling baby sling. But except small thickness me were involved specifically by the form factor of a baby sling assuming possibility to get the necessary things, without removing it from a shoulder. Well and Thule brand, perfectly recognizable to car owners on high-quality autoluggage carriers and a car different fixture of the equipment, inspired respect. Expectations of a mad ryukzachnik and Roman sumochnik completely came true if not to tell more. In details for a laptop and other things necessary on the way I will tell about operating experience of this non-standard receptacle below.
The 1st reminiscence from a baby sling — the THING, an obmyslenny, first-class and reliable thing! It was created rather easily — at the expense of materials of a device, its small weight and design. Crossover Sling is executed from nylon with hitretsky weaving. To the touch it ridge, rigid with is sensitive acting dark and snow-white thread. You touch that and you go bananas. From ordinary nylon of similar feelings I somehow will not remember, though, it everything very personally.
The 2nd that appears on a look — dural accessories. Nevertheless aluminum a tremendous material and very safely looks against the ordinary alloy used in bags and satchels, or plastic.

It is very presentable for a baby sling and a tear-shaped form, plus lightnings of the main departments especially look, permitting to open them only half, but it is a basic part of functionality of this product about which we will have a talk is sensitive later. While let’s make out this creation of the Swedish masters closer.
Fine and functionally outside, it is excellent снутри
Basic part of a satchel are straps and their design. This element and for a baby sling is more important. Thule used very wide strap on which comfortably took place not only only small pocket and the handle for carrying.
The handle rigid, with a leather insert and very comfortable.
The pocket too is very functional, because, unlike similar ryukzachny, it especially is not bent at a sock and there it is possible to place much that useful. I carry a small pack of cardboard napkins, it is possible to enclose keys, a small purse of type clip-on earrings with a leather cover for notes, etc. When on a shoulder, before a pocket it is simple to get a baby sling, in other words, it truly the worker.
Belt holding a strap too wide and quite the long for though what person. For example, I at volume of a chest section in 120 cm have still a big laid up. The pleasant trifle — is a flypaper on the belt end. It does not dangle, and аккуратненько is braided in a roll and fixed by a tape велкро.
From below the belt fastens to the next wide strap from within trimmed with a myagenky material passing air.
It is used from an internal part of the main strap, plus in the same place is own sort punching for ventilation. The body under a strap, in principle, in hot weather should not sweat.
The back, by the way, too it seems as is protected from superfluous perspiration by means of pair of thin myagenky pillows on a slinka, but to check it in practice yet it was not possible. Nevertheless, to carry Crossover Sling it is comfortable, a back and a strap at it cool.
Direct attention and to the second handle. Quite often happens useful and if baby sling perfectly to load, to bear it for this handle more convenient, than for that that on a strap (the 2nd handle same rigid and cool) — the weight is distributed better.
Doggies on lightnings too dural with an elegant slip from rigid translucent rubber of blue color. Walk simply, and quality of lightnings of altercations does not cause.
However, the water-proof lightning is only on one pocket — on face-to-face. It small, there perfectly is located with Galaxy Note II or though what other phone.
This department reveals with tangible effort so imperceptibly to take out from it valuable things to the hooligan hardly it will turn out, you will feel it. But, in any case, not запамятовывайте to look behind a baby sling in weight, and it is better to throw it forward what to make not so difficult about what we will have a talk in operating experience. Snutri a pocket is laid out by the same myagenky, but a strong fabric that is on an internal part of straps and a device back.
We run across to the subsequent, average department. Its wall is trimmed by the myagenky fabric mentioned above. For pockets and the main part of office the fabric pleasant to the touch is used smooth and too, but it is more rigid. It is excellent. Whether enough that will drag in a satchel. For example, terrible iron клипса my knife does not leave on this fabric any traces while I seriously am afraid for a pocket of jeans.
Under malekhanky pockets is, how I call it, «a net pocket», dividing the lower part of a baby sling on three parts. Snutri grids under the lock can store any valuable things if there is a fear that someone will get into department when the bag is behind the back. A grid too strong, the lock on it successful. How many I stretched it, from what awkward provisions in it a hand залазил, troubles any are not present. Plus on a face-to-face part of a grid is own sort the limiter in the form of a nylon thong.
In the greatest department there is a special pocket for the laptop on a back wall and the next pocket on a face-to-face wall. The laptop снутри is perfectly protected from casual blows: as I mentioned above — a satchel back very thick, with myagenky dempfiruyushchy inserts, a forward part of a pocket too powerful. Cheerfully that on the official website comparability of a baby sling to 13-inch laptops is specified, on a firm cardboard label the 14-inch laptop is noted, and upon in Crossover Sling 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro perfectly is located. Moreover, on инфы 1 of readers owners of the same baby sling, in it, without being scratched about a lightning, 17-inch MacBook Pro, thus without harm for convenience of operation holds!
Between pockets it is possible to place mass of all useful. Usually I there carry the Sony RX-100 camera in a rigid cover, a set of connecting wires снутри a small organizer, the external 2,5-inch winchester, earphones and a little other trifle. There the handbag with shampoo, shower gel and a small towel, plus rubber slippers when went to Kiev in an aquapark perfectly held. As required it is possible to arrange a two-three of T-shirts, pair of changes of underwear, socks if for short term leave to other city. Though the baby sling and thin, but holds in it many poleznost.
In a pocket on a face-to-face wall there is a carbine on a belt, it is possible to fasten keys, plus also to enclose there any necessary pieces.
There is in Thule Crossover Sling the next pocket, from the first look the imperceptible. It opened also is in a face-to-face part of a baby sling. If prophetic снутри it is not enough bag, this department simply will include a small bottle with water. I usually there carry a big package or pair such, just in case. Suddenly the spouse will ask to get something voluminous in grocery shop.
As a whole at a device very obmyslenny design, thus it is adapted as for extraction of things, when a baby sling in vertical situation and when it in horizontal, for example, when is thrown from a back on a breast. Imperceptibly we also approached to the most fascinating part of article — to operating experience.
On a back and on a breast
The baby sling connects воединыжды in itself satchel and bag pluses through a shoulder. the 1st comfortably to carry, hands are free and it does not fight about a back and buttocks. But to get any thing, it by all means needs to be removed. For this purpose it is not necessary to remove a bag, but in a sock it is not so comfortable. The baby sling actually as is quite good in respect of carrying as a satchel, at all this to remove it not by all means if it is necessary to get or sit down urgently something in public transport.

By the way, here so the baby sling looks on a mighty back
If I go with a satchel, also I drag with myself a small bag through a shoulder where quite often taken things such as a purse, a malekhanky tablet, phone, etc. lie. With Thule Crossover Sling from a small bag it was possible to be released simply. The baby sling is simple for throwing on a breast nearly one movement and something useful from it to get:
As it is simple though what pocket to clasp and return to Crossover Sling for a back.
Similarly and in public transport if it is necessary to sit down. And if it is not necessary, it is possible to throw a device on a back because it actually does not take an excessive place and люд will not constrain. Though, better, it is natural to turn a bag to a wall not to tempt pilferers.
That the baby sling practically hangs on one shoulder, personally especially does not strain me, loading is perfectly distributed at the expense of wide and quite rigid strap. Not including that, it not so difficult and promptly to put on, nearly one movement I throw and заныриваю under a strap.
Well, I can tell only: «Thule bravo»! The company made a successful baby sling, with similar ease replacing both small city satchel, and a bag through a shoulder. The laptop, a tablet and mass of the trifles necessary on the way always with itself, and their huge part is simple for getting, without removing Crossover Sling. Besides this piece cool looks, is lovely to the touch and. as showed experiment, quite strong and reliable.
Pleasure cost on the official website — $100. On Amazon it is possible to find for $70, and even is cheaper, if color not so popular. On open spaces of the Russian Federation for a wonder demand to $200. I will add that Thule gives on own baby sling an imposing guarantee in 25 years.
