The Daythum sling is a great bag to carry your everyday items but keep your hands free. It’s sized to fit a standard bottle of water, along with your wallet, keys, sunglasses, and other essentials so it’s really handy for walking and travelling, when you just need the essentials and don’t want a handbag hanging on your shoulder. On the back is a zip pocket. Because the pocket is against your body while the bag is in use, it’s a great place to keep your phone secure.
