Nice backpack if you value security

I bought the Flipside 200, because I liked the style and the security it provides. I was debating between the Flipside 200 vs. the Slingshot 100. I like the style of the Flipside better, but must admit that the Slingshot would have probably suited me better, because it is much easier to access the equipment.

I bought the Flipside 200, because I liked the style and the security it provides. I was debating between the Flipside 200 vs. the Slingshot 100. I like the style of the Flipside better, but must admit that the Slingshot would have probably suited me better, because it is much easier to access the equipment. However, the Flipside is better for hiking trips when you also want to lug a tripod thanks to the built-in external tripod holder. The Flipside also allows more customization in its interior compartment (via detachable velcro dividers), and it's roomier. I've been able to put in the bag my Oly E-510 and E-410 along with the 14-54mm, 40-150mm, and 25mm lenses, plus the FL36R flash, and assorted filters and batteries. I also attached a Slik Sprint Pro tripod to the outside of the bag. Not bad at all for a small bag. The construction is very good. However, if you have broad shoulders, beware. Given that the Flipside 200 is fairly skinny and narrow, the placement of the straps might be a little bit too close together for someone with broad shoulders (i.e. me). The problem is somewhat resolved by loosening up the straps. But then, the bag bounces around a bit too much. But I think I've found a decent compromise. Overall, it's a nice bag if you know its limitations. Obviously, it's harder to reach stuff quickly (more than I initially imagined). But it provides security and protection for the gear very well.

Not for narrow shoulders

Bought this bag and returned it. I have narrow shoulders and the backpack didn't fit comfortably across them. In order to secure it, I had to strap both the waist belt and the chest belt - probably not an issue for men, but not very comfortable for women! A nice bag, but not as comfortable as I had hoped. Those with broader shoulders would probably like this bag much more than I did.

great value

By

sturdy build, ample room, and great for on-the-go street/outdoor photography. Drawback: you will almost certainly give off the tourist vibe.

Good for the price

By

The zipper is kind of difficult to use. It is in an awkward place. It would fit my needs better if it had a quick access point to get to the actual camera without having to unzip the whole back compartment. It is still a very good product.

Nice pack for attached lenses.

By

from Alexander City, Al.  -  Photo Enthusiast

This pack is best for carrying longer lenses attached. For example the 70-200 group. Because of this, the camera will have to be vertical rather than horizontal like you carry in the slinger type bags. With these heavier lenses, two straps are much better than one slinger style strap even though the slingers are much faster to access because of the side door. But, if you are carrying your gear some distance then this pack is far better and easier on your back and shoulders. You can swing it around to the front of your body and access your gear from the rear of the pack. Not really a problem. I recommend this pack for longer lenses and slinger 100 for shorter lenses. Slinger 200 W carries too much weight for a single strap.

Extremely light, very comfortable

By

from Eastern Washington  -  Photography Student

I have worn this backpack for several hikes now, and it seems like the more I wear it, the more comfortable it feels. At first it was a little tough accessing the equipment, but again it got better with use. Highly recommended

Decent backpack

By

from Mohawk Valley, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is a decent backpack, great for starters. The material quality of this product is very good. I am 5,11" so its fits very comfortably. The backpack can not be opened from behind, I like that a lot, especially when walking in the crowded places.So why only 4 out of 5 stars?Well, on the outside, the backpack looks much bigger then it actually can fit. The zipper does not come all the way down, makes it very difficult to access the bottom portion. Not as configurable as I wanted.But overall its was worth it for [$] bucks.

Perfect for an oversees trip.

By

from Pennsylvania  -  Photo Enthusiast

I went on a bus tour of several countries in Europe. The pack traveled well in the airports, on the bus in the overhead compartment and walking around on the different stops. It was harder to access the compartments than I thought, but that also provided great security and protection.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
RON T  I would recommend next model up. I found this bag too small. If you are going to carry gear with you that warrants a back pack, bigger is better.
Lee D  there are 2 models - 200 and 300. what is the difference? is the 300 bigger and holds more? do they both have the tripod holder?
Andrew R  The only real difference between the two units is size. The 300 has esentially the same features as the 200, but is slightly larger.
Shopper  Does this model support a laptop? If not, can you recommend one in this style? Thanks
SHARON D  Sorry but you wouldn't be able to put a laptop in this bag. My son used it to travel in Central America this summer and loved it. He said he was able to put all his camera items in it that he needed.
