Warranty Information:
Limited Lifetime Warranty (See our warranty page for details.)

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"

    Great backpack…but

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Functional and discreet.

    Posted by Michael T on Apr 21st 2018

    Pretty good bag. I'm not a fan of the zipper pulls. After a couple weeks of daily carry, the interior zippered compartment inside the admin compartment (where all the elastic organizers and stuff are) has torn right next to the out zipper.

    Replacement Bag

    Posted by Dennis on Apr 14th 2018

    This bag replaced the same bag I had. The original ripped on the first front pocket and they replaced it with the same bag. This bag is great, I use it every day. I'll see if it lasts and if it breaks again if they will replace it. Only time will tell.

    Urban Slingback

    Posted by Courtney on Mar 22nd 2018

    This bag is amazing! I bought it to replace my purse (that basically became a diaper bag/snack bag/purse combo). My old purse was too heavy and put too much weight on my shoulder. This bag carries EVERYTHING I need without being bulky at all; and it’s crazy comfortable.

    Excellent quality bag

    Posted by Chaun W. on Mar 13th 2018

    The bag is excellent quality. Seems tough and built to last. It is exactly as the website describes it. I am very happy with my purchase, and I have already recommended 3V gear to some of my friends.

    Nice pack, zippers are good.

    Posted by Claudine D. on Feb 11th 2018

    Nice pack, zippers are good. Good storage and pockets arrangement. Only disappointment is the size of the zipper pulls - the string is small enough to pull out of the zipper if under too much stress. Larger string or paracord will fix this, but not what I expected given the quality of the rest of the pack.

    I really like the subdued,

    Posted by Saysana R. on Jan 19th 2018

    I really like the subdued, stealth style of this new bag. The organizer pockets are plentiful and make this better choice for me and my trek to work each day than my much-loved Outlaw Sling (I have two of them). It seems to hold more gear than my Outlaw as well. The only thing issue I have is with the zippers - they seem to stick or not move as easily as the zippers on my Outlaw bags. I am going to put heavier pulls on them this weekend to see if that helps. Otherwise - an awesome bag at an incredible price.

    I ordered this pack along

    Posted by Jay M. on Jan 15th 2018

    I ordered this pack along with 2 hydration packs. In my opinion, the description on your website does state clearly enough that no bladder is included with the hydration pack. When the items were delivered and I realized that the bladders weren't included, I looked at website and noticed that the bladders are offered at a discount, but only if purchased at the same time as the bag.

    My request for the discount on a immediate order for the bladders was declined. I chose to return the entire order. I am not likely to be a future customer of 3vgear.

    Posted by Marc J. on Dec 13th 2017

    I love their packs! I had a zipper issue with one of their bags that I had just purchased but they sent me a new one free of charge and let me keep the old bag. Awesome in my book!

    Great Urban bag. One nit

    Posted by Tony on Dec 9th 2017

    Great Urban bag. One nit pick would be is that the string attached to he zipper doesn't feel as sturdy as the ones on the outlaw sling bag.

    Posted by K J. on Nov 11th 2017

    I bought this and the old Outlaw gear sling bag as gifts for my sister, both are about the same size, however, the Shift looks more covert and discrete. I would buy both again in a heartbeat.

    Hands down the best of both worlds!!! I purchased the outlaw 2 sling pack at first and while I loved it, the shift urban pack had all that functionality and looked so damn beautiful on top of it. This pack goes with me everywhere!
