The Shift Urban Sling Pack was designed to give you the same rugged, tough construction that you would expect from all 3V Gear bags but with discreet styling. This gives you all of the benefits of a tactical sling bag but also allows you to blend in if you want to. The Shift Urban Sling Pack is designed to give you quick and easy access to your bag without removing it. This Shift swings around to the front of your body and all of the zippers are positioned on the side of the bag to give you access to all of your gear with the bag in front of you.

The Shift features a padded laptop sleeve, loads of organization, stabilizer strap to keep your bag secure, conceal carry pocket with loop field for a Velcro holster, and molded EVA foam back. Two padded grab handles and a thick, padded shoulder strap will keep you comfortable when using the Shift. Whether you are commuting to work, heading to school, or working a security detail, the Shift will be your perfect companion.

The Shift is the perfect addition to the 3V Gear Stealth Operator Bag (SOB) line. You get the same great features, build quality, and design you would expect from 3V Gear, but it comes in a nondescript tactical pack.

Looking for something a like more tactical? Check out our best-selling Outlaw II Gear Slinger Pack.

Protect yourself by pairing the Shift with our NEW Riparo Shield - IIIA Soft Body Armor 8" x 10"





The stabilizer strap gives you the added support and stability of a backpack without losing the functionality of a sling pack. When not in use, the stabilizer strap will tuck neatly away so it isn't dangling off the pack.

Padded Laptop Sleeve


A quick stash pocket on the front of the bag is great for small items, like your phone, keys, and other small items.

Tons of Expansion


Multiple pockets, slotted elastic, and a key lanyard give you tons of organizatsion. No matter what you are carrying, you will be able to have a dedicated spot for that item. No more hunting through large pockets trying to located something.

Modular Backpack Design


An elastic water bottle is great for stashing your water bottle when you are on the move. It will easily accomodate just about any water bottle, including a 32 ounce Nalgene water bottle.

EVA Back Panel


Padded grab handles on the top and side of the bag give you a padded carry option and will protect your hands while you carry the bag at your side. A large front pocket is great for stashing notebooks and other items.

Hook and Loop Back Panel


The Shift Sling Pack is perfect for everyday carry and with its sleek design, it will fit in at the office or at the range.

Hydration Compatible


The Shift Sling Pack comes with a PVC lined hydration compartment that will accomodate most 2-liter hydration reservoirs. A port on the top of the bag allows you to run the tube out of the bag and down the shoulder strap. There is also a velcro patch to accomodate CCW holsters.

Attention to Detail


A padded laptop sleeve will fit your 13" and most 15" laptops. A velcro fastener will hold you laptop in place when you are on the move.

Additional Features


The top loading design gives you access to all of the slings pockets without you having to remove the sling pack. (Sentinel Padded Camera Insert sold separately)

    Urban sling pack

    Posted by Michael O on Aug 16th 2018

    I purchased the urban sling pack for my son after getting myself a Subrosa. He really likes it as with anything there are suggestions or changes I could make but overall I’m pleased with both of the packs I have and I’m getting ready to purchase another urban sling pack for my nephew. I would get a sling pack for myself but the strap is on the wrong side for my preference.

    Great backpack…but

    Posted by Matt on May 25th 2018

    Great backpack, super comfortable on the shoulder and I love the design. However, if you prefer lots of pockets this bag might not be a good idea.

    Good Look, but Room to Improve

    Posted by Kevin T on May 22nd 2018

    The sling is low-profile, a great carry for miscellaneous items. A little weak on the build; tugging on the molle on the sling strap ripped out seams within the first week of gentle use. Also some difficulty pulling the zippers shut, even when the pack is only half full. Would earn full stars if it were put together with stronger materials or stronger seams in weight-bearing parts.

    Poor quality

    I've had this bag less than 6 months and one zipper has already stopped working

    Awesome EDC bag

    Posted by Shane on May 18th 2018

    This has become my EDC pack. Plenty of room for my loadout but small enough fit almost anywhere.
    Comfortable on shorter hikes though I find myself changing shoulders on longer ones.
    Quality product, mine has seen some abuse and is holding up well. Would recommend.

    Five Stars

    Posted by John D on May 14th 2018

    Awesome bag had to clamp down all the zipper slides to prevent the pulls accidentally coming out, but other than that awesome so far

    Posted by Trevor on May 1st 2018

    Great! Use for my everyday needs. Plenty of compartments for cables, connectors, laptop, iPad and small tools needed. And, I don't have to hand carry my water bottle now… Network Engineer

    Good bag for work

    Posted by JohnVa on Apr 25th 2018

    I carry this bag for work as it is more more simple than a tactical bag. That being said it does not have all of the webbing I would like in a true EDC even on the insides. 4 stars because the CCW compartment could have some sort of padding below and/or above the Velcro square to even out the back plate when a weapon is being carried. This would limit hydration options but with what this bag is designed for you are almost certainly going somewhere you could just carry a water bottle.

    Great pack one of the best

    Posted by Garrett L on Apr 24th 2018

    Durable pack I've been carrying it around for about 2 months now every day it's held up to being used very well. I would recommend this to my friends and family.
