    This review is from: Lowepro SlingShot 100 All-Weather Digital Camera Backpack – Black (Camera)

    After much thought, I decided to get a sling-type bag, as a backpack would be too difficult to access on the run, and in my experience a traditional (boxy) camera bag is a pain to carry around.

    I have an EOS 20D with the 17-85mm zoom, and it fits beautifully in the main compartment with sufficient room for another lens and a flash or for two lenses.Then there’s an upper compartment where I keep my battery charger, cables and other assorted stuff, and a filter pocket in the front.

    Some nice details that really stand out to me:
    – The hidden all-weather cover that stows away in a flat Velcro-ed pocket to the base of the bag is invisible until you pull it out for use: so much so that one reviewer didn’t even realise it is there!
    – The back is very well padded.
    – The zips are very high quality, and silent when in use. When they are closed the zips themselves are not visible, instead you have a neat covered `bead’ for the length of the opening.
    – The main compartment flap opens fully, giving unrestricted access.
    – There are two nylon webbing straps with quick-release clips to that ensure that when the bag is on your front, there is no chance that the flap will accidentally open due to the weight of the camera, even is the zips are half opened. This is hard to describe accurately, but trust me- there’ll be no nasty surprises if these clips are in place.
    – When in shooting position, the bag presents an excellent platform for your elbows, greatly enhancing the steadiness of your shot.
    – There’s a built-in microfibre cloth that protects your LCD screen whilst the camera is in the bag, and may well be used as a lenscloth.
    – When you want to get moving, there’s a second smaller strap that attaches easily to the main strap so that the bag really stays put on your back, even when hunched over on a bike.

    This is beautifully made and intelligently designed bag that will likely last for years. I can’t recommend it highly enough.

    UPDATE: Have gotten the 70-300 IS (non-DO) canon zoom and the SlingShot 100 will not fit this lens whilst it’s attached to the body without distortion of the closure flap – it does however fit the 20D body with a 17-85 mounted on it whilst the 70-300 is in the left compartment and the 70-300’s large lens hood stored either on the lens in reverse, or in the right compartment, so I’m still happy with it.

    UPDATE 2: Alexander asked me is the Slingshot would work on one shoulder: i.e. not over your head and across your chest. The answer is yes and no: you can certainly sling it over one shoulder, but due to the angle it was designed to work at the strap does not ‘sit’ as well on one side, so if you choose to carry it like this, you’ll have to hold on to the bag a bit. Having said this, I use it on one shoulder far more than slung across my chest, so let that be your guide.

    Customer Video Review Length:: 7:13 Mins

    Bought my Lowepro Slingshot 100 AW bag off of Amazon Lightning Deals a few days ago. Although the reviews and description were very helpful to me I was still a little hesitant in not knowing if all my equipment would fit and how sturdy or well padded the bag was. Decided to try a video review (which I hope you find helpful) to walk you through the ins and outs of this camera bag as I was pleasantly surprised all the way around!

    This review is from: Lowepro SlingShot 100 All-Weather Digital Camera Backpack – Black (Camera)

    Lowe has done it again. I own 2 other Lowe bags (one being my expedition backpack for camping and a computrekker). I swear by their design innovation and attention to using professional grade materials.

    I use the SlingShot 100 AW everyday. Photo ops come up at any second. You have to be ready and the SlingShot allows you to be there. It comfortably holds my DSLR Rebel XT, 430EX flash, 5 memory cards, cables, power adapter, 24mm lens, 85mm lens, 100mm macro lens and the attached 18-55mm lens.

    The INGENIOUS sling design is easy to use. Simply rotate unzip the main compartment (everything stays in because the closeable buckles prohibit you from opening it up too far) and easily lift the camera out in shooting position.

    While the camera is out, the bag hangs comfortable around the front and I use it to rest my elbow on while shooting (an added bonus! stability).

    The stabilizing strap can be hidden away, very NICE touch. And easily pulled out when needed.

    The all-weather (AW) hidden cover comes out and protects in a downpour. Another great idea.

    The microfiber LCD protector, numerous pockets are added bonuses, but the TRUE BEAUTY OF THIS BAG is that it allows QUICK, EASY AND SECURE motion from storage to shoot.

    I got the 100 because I’m smaller and prefer a smaller bag. If I need to absolutely carry more lenses and gear, I’ll most likely be going somewhere where I’m going to be stationary so I’ll use my Lowe computrekker.

    But as for being in the field, and being ready at moments notice…the SlingShot is it.

    UPDATE JULY 2008:
    =================
    I sold this bag. Not because it was bad–I got more stuff and bought the next size up! I own the Slingshot 200 now and it is just as versatile, convenient and durable. LoweProducts are the way to go.

    I’m thinking of going backpacking up into a mountain, but the only problem is, is that I don’t have a backpack for it. So for all of you backpackers, what is by-far THE best backpack for a trip up into that mountains?

    We have an ADT security system, and theres a sensor at every door. Its always in ready mode, never in armed mode. We open doors all the time and it beeps 3 times, nothing more. Last night my dad and i were chilling in the basement watching tv, and we heard 3 bumps coming from upstairs but thought nothing of it because we were intoxicated, then 10 min later the alarm started going ballistic. Its never done this before and we’ve lived here for 2 years. I dont know if this has anything to do with it but the next day i noticed the alarm display was off, when i went downstairs to the board, the powerwire had been disconnected from the plug. Could it have anything to do with the alarm going off? the display was on and working when the alarm sounded.
    yeah i couldnt find a board for home security or anything relevent.
