gear good to go

Summary: Bag is great for transport and travel. Feel confident that the construction will protect my camera and lenses for along time. Would recommend for photogs that want to take a few lenses and a couple pieces of other gear with them to their next shoot.
Pros: Adjustable Harness, Comfortable, Easily Accessible Equipment, Roomy, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is a great bag of which I picked up a used copy at my French B&M photo store. It was in "like new" condition and not expensive ... the newer version had been released and this bag was "discontinued" ... despite the fact that plenty of new ones could still be purchased via Internet.
Pros: Comfortable, practical, build, swing around for DSLR access via zippered flap ...
Cons: Maybe too small for me now ... upper compartment a bit tiny, enlarged on newer version plus addition of a tripod holder system
Summary: I travel and move around a lot with my camera. I have a Velocity 10X sling bag which I found to be way too big on my travels to Asia. When I was manuevering around Asia, its size and weight simply got in my way. I wanted and needed a smallish bag that would fit just enough stuff and this hits the spot...I am able to fit my Canon T2i with Tamron 17-50 lens attached, a 50-250mm zoom lens, and a Canon 50 mm lens in the main compartment.
you can fit pro-sized bodies (or standard dslrs with battery/grip attachments)

Summary: i added 2 photos of the slingshot packing an EOS 1Ds (about the size of any of the 1Ds, or a 5D with optional grip, or any other pro nikon body). the lens on it has to be a reasonable size, my favorite 50mm f/1.4 works well. it's a tight fit but works well, and i have room for another zoom or smaller camera. others have covered the other major features.
Summary: As a father of three daughters of various ages involved in many activities, this bag has been a Godsend. With diaper bag, stroller, and other things that accompany me on every outing, this camera bag makes carrying around my DSLR a minor afterthought. because this is a shoulder bag/slim backpack centered on my back on the go, it is very stable.
Summary: I was wondering if my D90 with my 18-200mm lens mounted could fit, and it does perfectly! Just the right size for this camera. It has space for two more mid-small lenses and there's still room for more stuff in the upper compartment. Great deal for hobby photographers.
Summary: My husband and I purchased this bag because we loved the fact that it didn't look like your ordinary camera bag--less bulk, and easy to carry. The shoulder strap makes it very easy to swing the bag around and access the camera. Plus there is lots of extra storage without adding to the size of the bag.
Summary: Eventhough I don't have much equipment as someone new to the hobby, I find this is an excellent bag for taking gear on the go...it is my primary bag right now. Fits my Canon XSi with zoom attached (70-250) as well as the 18-55mm that came with the camera. With that, there is still room to add a flash and carry battery charger, filters, etc. Fast and easy to access my camera, sturdy and many features. Lowepro has a number of these in different sizes.
