Windspeed Cadet Sling Bag Review: Your New Everyday Companion

windspeed sling bag review

Sling bags are as cool as they are functional when you want to hit the course light. Up here for review, the Windspeed Cadet Sling Bag promises to deliver what the crowd wants in a sling. In particular, it has garnered attention for its promising blend of utility and style. It promises a hands-free experience without the bulk of a backpack and has piqued our interest as a potential staple for our regular gameplay.

So if you like small bags, they are a dime a dozen. And in this section of the market, there are some premium slings like the Nut Sac or Sling Shot, which you can see here. Well, the Windspeed isn’t in the outstanding category in the small disc golf bag sphere; it’s aimed squarely at the budget market. If you are the kind of person who is not into fancy labels or doesn’t need the premium line of sportswear, then this bag is in suitable territory for you.

First Impressions

  • Packs up to 10 discs
  • Good starter bag
  • Unisex
  • Room for a water bottle
  • Easy on the pocket – you don’t need to be precious with it
  • Good backup bag
  • Waterproof
  • Adjustable Strap
  • Choice of rectangle or round
  • No padding
  • Thin Material

Design and Aesthetics

Straight up, I prefer the rectangular version. The round is too much like a cake box for me. But its nice to have two style options. This will certainly not be a great wearing bag, even though it’s made from Cationic Oxford fabric, which is rip resistant and very tough in principle, as well as easy to clean. It’s just a bit on the thin side; a few reviewers on Amazon have noted the strap has completely detached with very little abuse. But new players starting out, and kids will love it.

There is a mini-zipper bag to keep your essentials. And with an adjustable strap, you can bang 10 discs in it, grab water, and be out of the house in minutes. Sling bags are so good for fast rounds; hook it round your shoulder, and you don’t even need to take it off when you’re throwing, unless you have a full water bottle in it. Especially as it weighs practically nothing (0.17kg). It is definitely a good choice for a backup or light disc day bag.


Very light

Under $10

Good starter/kids bag


Material is very thin

Strap is short

Built with disposability rather then longevity


Windspeed Sling Bag Round-Up

Windspeed has designed a sling that isn’t going to win any awards; it isn’t going to last forever, but it’s not making any claims to do so. You won’t see much of any YouTube reviews on this product, as it is not going to last a long time. But it’s cheap, it’s cheerful, and it provides a bit of waterproofing and a space for a bottle. Even if you have a more premium bag, everybody needs a few cheap slings just to grab some discs on the go, say you want to go to a park, or out the front of your pad to air some discs.

For these situations, you don’t need a big bag. And if you want something cheap, the Windspeed is like one of those bags you’d lift in the supermarket without giving it a second thought. You know what it’s going to offer you, and only if you get a couple of games out of it, so what at this price?
