With two main compartments, a pocket just for your phone, multiple interior pockets, the Slinger is the perfect day bag for any Dime Bags fan. It has the capabilities of a large tote or purse but the compactness of a fanny pack while conveniently carried across your torso and shoulder. 

Our Hempster colors and water-resistant recycled polyester colors give it an ultramodern, eco-friendly vibe. Four colors come in our water-resistant material which helps keep moisture out and keeps all of your belongings safe. Its heavy-duty zippers and adjustable straps make it a comfortable bag for on-the-go travel. You’d be surprised to see the many zippered compartments we’re able to fit into this midsize bag, but as always, we’ve got a pocket for whatever secret treasures need to be hidden.

The Omerta Collection

If you need to keep your latest hoard of goodies hidden from your family members or have to store your dirty clothes along your road trip, then the Omerta line of bags will be the perfect choice for all your travel needs. Our entire Omerta line features activated carbon lining that traps in any free molecules and absorbs it completely. Its porous surface gives the carbon lining the surface area it needs to capture any strong scents and never release them. Many of the Omerta bags also come with their own locking mechanism, so if keeping your stuff only accessible to you, is important, then be sure to find the right Omerta bag for your upcoming road trip. 

The Omerta line takes its inspiration from the coined golden rule of “omerta,” the code conduct of loyalty and silence used by the Silician Mafia. With this oath to silence, our line of Omerta bags are equipped with locking zippers and smell-proof protection that’s sure to last.

We’d like to give a little shoutout to the Omerta Underboss as well. It is literally the magnetic case that keeps your stash under your car. Learn more about the smell-proof car case here.
