I can't really give much opinion on other bags because this is my first and only unless you count my old Jansport backpack from high school that still gets used to haul ammo and gun stuff to the range. I prefer a sling bag because it's easier on my shoulders. I really don't carry them as much as they lay in the passenger seat on my vehicle, but for 5 years now I haven't left home without it. It did start to come unstitched in one spot on the sling, but I figure after the use I've put it through it was acceptable and easy enough to sew up.
Well that's a fair point, they are less comfortable if you really weigh them down. I do tend to have a lot of crap in mine, but mine really spends more time in the passenger seat of my work truck than it does on my back. If I had to carry it more often I may look into the Rush 12 which is a standard backpack. That second strap is always a pain for me to get my second arm into, I like how easy the sling bag is to get on and off, and I really like how you can spin it around to your front and get into it without taking it off.
