    First time poster - thanks in advance for any feedback. I'm looking for a minimalist sling bag to hold a small pistol (Sig P365 at the small end, but maybe periodically a full size pistol), and maybe a few other items. I'd prefer a gray approach (no Molle), so I've looked at the Nutsac Man-Bag Dammit. The MBD seems a bit more like a purse/murse, and not really set up for holding a pistol. Should I change my thoughts on the sling, or are there other suggestions? I took a quick look online at the Maxpedition Lochspyr, and while it seems closer to what I'm seeking, I'd love it with the materials from Nutsac instead of the nylon.

    Cache L1 Concealed Carry Shoulder Bag

    I found these on tactical geek. Look better than the one I got from China a while ago that I still use. Easy to wear driving under a jacket.

    Thank you very much. I found the Cache and it’s a bit larger and tactical than I’m seeking. Another item that is closer to what I want is the Bellroy Mini Sling. Maybe I just need to get something like that and see if I can tweak it so it has an interior Kydex holster or other pistol retention system?

    Take a look at the Vanquest Carbide-8 and Carbide-12. I just picked up the Carbide-8 to use as a grab & go for quick trips to the store, restaurant, etc. Might be what you’re looking for.

    Thanks. I feel like Goldilocks - that Carbide 8 looks pretty cool, but it’s about 2x as big as the Bellroy Mini, which is the closest *for looks and size* that I’m seeking.

    I hadn't looked at the Bellroy Mini till just now. I see what you're going for. I don't have one, but the Vanquest Dendrite-Large is similar to the Bellroy. 4L and can be worn as a sling. It is CCW capable, but does say for sub-compacts.

    Awesome - looking into these now, but my initial reaction is that this, or the small, may be perfect.

    Check out the Vertx Tourist or Essential sling.

    Vertx makes some great stuff. Purpose-driven, off-body carry bags.

    Thanks. I’ve had my eye on the Tourist for a while, but for different reasons (as well as a few of their larger bags that would hold a rifle). They both look great but a *bit* large for this purpose.

    If you like Nutsac, look further into them. They make a bag designed for EDC weapons with holster and molle inside the bag (if I remember correctly). Nutsac Tacsac 11” and 13”.
