Perfect light sling for an APS-C shooter

I was looking for a sling bag to replace my Mirrorless Mover 10. I have the Backstory 13, but sometimes I need something a little smaller and discrete. I can fit my Sony A6400, with a Tamron 17-70mm F/2.8 attached if I remove one of the dividers. That still leaves room for 2 primes in the main compartment.

Love this little bag

Overall, I really love this bag. I look forward to going out to shoot knowing that I can carry my gear safely in a bag that is stylish and comfortable, with extra room for other items.  There are a couple of annoyances with it, mainly the placement of the zippers. I use the bag on my left shoulder which means the access for the main compartment is right next to the area for a tablet (or, in my case, a phone). The first couple of times I wore the bag, I got confused about which zipper to pull and invariably opened the one with my phone by accident. To remedy that, I moved the camera compartment zippers down toward the bottom of the bag and trained myself to reach there. But what has also happened is that the zipper pull for the tablet compartment has gotten stuck in the camera compartment and made it difficult to open. Argh! So something needs to be changed with the way the zipper/zipper pulls lay. I may change out the pull so it is heavier and let gravity work for me. Other than that, it's a bag I would fully recommend, is very versatile for both camera gear and other necessities (face mask and hand sanitizer- sign of the times). I can also fit a small water bottle in the front pocket. Thanks for making a great bag.

Great design, easy access, caught between the access 10 and 8. Want to travel light so 8 was the solution.

It is the closest thing to right I've found.

I had corresponded with Thinktank and actually had a conversation with someone there about my concern that almost all camera bags are storage bags... really difficult to work from. But, when I looked over the Urban 8 I was surprised at how many of the features dealt with whaty I had complained about, the flap that folds toward me and is always in my way, the difficulty I have just reaching in some bags for a lens, no place to put the lens removed while I change to another, additional pockets which are so small they're useless. The Urban 8 handles all those. The narrowing of the basic compartment I could do without but all and all this is a really fine bage.
