About this project

The Sling is the last case you will ever buy

It is slim, versatile, durable, elegant and customizable to suit your style and lifestyle.

Here are the facts:  

Phones and tablets keep getting thinner and harder to hold with each new generation. I don't get it either. Sling fits like a glove. It eliminates slips and cramps while reading, gaming, browsing, drawing and watching videos on the couch or on the go. Sling has a place for your headphones, stylus, USB drives and more so you can keep what you need on hand. It can be mounted almost anywhere as a result of the design.

FAQ  

Do the straps warp?

The straps are elastic and made from high strength materials. They will break before they warp. And if it wasn't clear, they are very difficult to break. 

Does the Sling have a lip to protect the screen? 

The sling has a 0.75mm lip all around the top edge to protect your device's screen when it's laying flat on the screen. 

Does it work with the iPad Smart Cover? 

Yes. The iPad Smart Cover will snap on magnetically and work just like it did even with the Sling on your iPad.

Risks and challenges

We are experienced Industrial Designers and artists at Sling. Our main obstacle is getting this operation off the ground while sourcing good high quality materials and afford the best manufacturers available. All contributions will go to create a strong foundation for Sling to provide the best product and post purchase services over a long term. Sling is a simple idea, but we believe it can impact the mobile world in a BIG way. We’re a new start up so that’s why we need your help. All it takes right now is your contribution on Kickstarter.
