Gomatic Navigator Sling 6L Review

The Navigator Sling 6L is an ‘every day’ sling, designed as companion bag when a full backpack is too big or simply unnecessary. Check out my thoughts after a few months use in my Gomatic Navigator Sling 6L Review.

Gomatic Navigator Sling 6L Review

General Usage

You can pack a surprising amount of things in it, making it very viable backpack replacement, unless you carry larger devices with you. Something I stringently try and avoid, my aim is to take the smallest kit possible I need to still be able to get work done.

The Navigator Sling allowed me to go out much lighter, and saved me taking a full backpack on numerous days. Knowing all the small items like my phone, wallet and keys are there, but also my notebook and laptop meaning I can deal with anything that comes up unexpectedly was very free’ing. A secure RFID pocket is great peace of mind, especially when commuting or travelling in busy touristy areas.

The only negative of the sling really is the fact that you can’t change the orientation of the sling carry side. It anchors to the right side base, and you can’t disconnect it and move it to the left side if that’s your preference. I’ve seen much cheaper bags/slings with this feature so it’s a little surprising and likely something that will be picked up in feedback.

Storage

In the main compartment you get 4 pockets for storage. Including mesh, zipper, and an RFID safe pocket. Thoughtful storage and cord management allow you to charge devices between pockets on the move and store smaller items such as a pen or apple pencil.

In the back pocket you can fit an 11” tablet or other slim gaming devices. The external hidden pocket also includes a key leash for quick access when you need it. I packed my Surface Go laptop and various other things (see the video below) that I need for an average day when I’m away from my desk and it handled all of them without any issue. In fact I could have easily slipped more things in.

Truly bulky items might be a struggle – over ear headphones in a carry case for example might be too wide to comfortable fit, but my Skullcandy XT2‘s as an example fit fine. I carry them without case, and the earphones rotate to lie flat. 13″ laptops or bigger are also going to exceed the sling dimensions and mean switching to something bigger. Gomatic always have you covered there of course with an amazing range of backpacks – you can also check out my review of the Gomatic Backpack here.

There is a convenient and easy to access pen holder, but only one. So if you travel with multiple pens/highlighters they will have to roam lose or be in a separate organiser.
