Good Bag for the active photographer

HelloTest, Bestbuy
30 May 2014
  • Summary: The design overall was great. I have many lenses and a larger DSL with attached telephoto lens requires compromising what lens one leaves attached...
  • Pros: Good Compact Bag. Many useful Compartments
  • Cons: Limited internal compartment dimensions hampers the ability to carry 4 or more larger lenses when travelling.

Good concept but very painful to wear

Eskay, Adorama
6 August 2013
  • Excerpt: I bought this just in time for trip to Italy. I have a rebel SLR, zoom lens, and a wide-angle lens All of which fits snugly in this pack. Unfortunately I dreaded wearing this backpack there because I find one shoulder straps are often too painful to carry around. I think that's more a function of all of these one shoulder backpacks rather then to shoulder backpacks. I'm not even that much of a wuss either because I routinely work out and lift weights.
  • Pros: Easily Accessible Equipment, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Cumbersome, Heavy

Too small for extra

Bomber, B&H Photo
14 September 2010
  • Excerpt: After trying to fit Nikon D90 with 70-300mm lense attached, I had to return it. It simply doesn't fit. I know that I am going to be using 18-200mm lense most times. However, if I ever decided to carry 70-300mm, then I wouldn't be able to use this bag. I like all the features that this bag has. So I am exchanging it to 202AW.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Has all
  • Cons: Limited Compatibility, Too small for 70-300mm

Simplicity speaks to itself

kwayms, B&H Photo
12 July 2010
  • Excerpt: I travel a lot and decided to buy a slingshot bag for my SLR. I have two Olympus lenses and one of my telephoto is too big to fit. Perhaps not most of SLR lenses will fit into this bag. Very convinient to carry. Most pockets have use on it and the best part, it has a place to put your tripod. Like I said very simple yet needs more adjustment. There's another version of this but it looks very bulky to wear.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Not most of SLR will fit

Solid pack, just not a right fit

Adorama
24 May 2010
  • Excerpt: This is avery well made pack and is a really good idea, it's just not designed well. It's awkward. It can only go over your left sholder, sits too high on the chest when spun around making it awkward to get camera in and out. If you want to get anything other than the camera out, the bag has to come off (I guess it doesn't but you run the risk of all your equipment spilling out).
  • Pros: Compact Design, Professional Quality
  • Cons: Lacks Functionality, Limited Compatibility
