About Lowepro

Passport Sling, Freedom for your every move. Protection for your DSLR. Lots of space for your personal gear....

Lowepro's Passport Sling is designed for today's photo enthusiasts who want to carry an equal amount of camera and personal gear as they sightsee, travel or go out for a walkwith their DSLRs. It's unique and comfortable shape is unlike a traditional sling bag it truly conforms to the body and easily moves with the wearer.

Place it across the chest, high and close or low and loose, depending on the activity. The shoulder strap features a cam lock buckle that easily adjusts for an ideal fit, plus a removable, sliding shoulder pad that offers cushioned comfort when needed. On the exterior, two slash pockets and a water bottle pocket provide quick access to maps, guide books, boarding passes.

Inside, the sling is equipped to protect your DSLR and a few accessories as well as offer plenty of space for personal items. Unzip the front of the Passport Sling to reveal an expansion compartment that adds approximately 30% more space enough to accommodate items like a light jacket, lunch, cool souvenir or farmers' market find.

A fully padded camera box (with built-in memory card pocket) protects a DSLR. Remove it and collapse the box when you want to pack the sling in a larger bag for travel.

Great addition to my gear

First of all, I don't think there is any one perfect bag for all situations. I was deciding between this bag and the Lowepro Versapack and ended up buying the Versapack. After a couple of months I bought the Passport Sling as well and love it. This will be my everyday camera bag. I set it up like a second purse (pen, gum, chap stick, etc.), so I just have to move in my wallet and cell phone and head out the door. I did wrestle with the divider in the camera compartment and ended up taking it ...

First of all, I don't think there is any one perfect bag for all situations. I was deciding between this bag and the Lowepro Versapack and ended up buying the Versapack. After a couple of months I bought the Passport Sling as well and love it. This will be my everyday camera bag. I set it up like a second purse (pen, gum, chap stick, etc.), so I just have to move in my wallet and cell phone and head out the door. I did wrestle with the divider in the camera compartment and ended up taking it out for now. My Nikon D7000 with 16-85mm lens fits in with a little room to spare and I like that I can get my hand in easily to get it out. When I take an extra lens I put in the bag part. I am more of a minimalist and don't want to carry a lot of weight, so this bag is great. I like that I can carry a water bottle and can unzip the bag if I want to lose a layer of clothing. I like that it is attractive, yet low profile, and I don't feel conspicuous taking it to a restaurant, sports event, work, etc. It is great in the city or on excursions and short hikes where you want to multi-task. If I was going on a longer hike or wanted to carry more gear, I would take the Versapack to better distribute the weight. That said, I don't find the bag uncomfortable. I am very happy with this purchase.

Great idea - needs tweaking

Loved the idea of this bag - just carried it on a trip and once my Canon 7D was in there, there was hardly room for everything else I needed to fit for the day. Security of having things in the exterior pockets is an issue and there isn't enough rubber grip on the shoulder pad. Mine is headed for [...].

Best camera bag


from Athens, GA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I use this bag when I want to take my DSLR and only 1 or 2 lenses with me. It is light, has just the right storage for some accessories. I like the way it conforms to my body unlike some bulky camera bags. The cross body design distributes weight and provides easy access (unlike a backpack). I just love it!


Great bag to use travelling


from Smithville, NJ  -  Photo Enthusiast

Very comfortable, hold enough gear and personal items and has handy pockets for water bottle, brochures, batteries, etc. I bought one for myself and one for my husband and he loves his too.


nice size - travels well!


from Maryland  -  Photo Enthusiast

We were looking for something small but would protect our slr when on the go. Goos amount of padding and room for extra lens and flash this bag goes over the shoilder and keeps camera close when out and about.


Be an invisible photographer!


from New Hampshire  -  Pro Photographer

I only gave it 4 stars because the padded camera insert is a bit roo small for complete coverage of a proDSLR with battery pack. I use it with one and can still zip it closed, but it is a bit tight. It would only have to be slightly bigger. Lowepro would not have to change the bag at all. It's easy to wear & can be slung around to stay pretty much where you want it. The interior pockets for memory cards, extra batts, etc., are terrific, and the zippered extension works well. Others have said the outside pockets should have closures. While that would provide more security, they are still deep enough to hide and hold a lot of items. Overall, I find this useful - and fairly attractive - as both a bag for the intrepid photographer-on-the-wall, and the casual user-of-all-things. I am a woman and can vouch for its comfort; not always true of camera shoulder bags/cross-body bags. The perfect bag for men or women to use when all you want to take is a camera and your brain;-)


Lowepro Passport Sling Case


from Bowling Green, Kentucky  -  Casual Photographer

Well designed, easy to open and use. Can be carried in a variety of ways. Also makes a conventional bag without the camera box so it is multipurpose. Good value for the money.


Purse with camera


from Hot Springs AR  -  Photo Enthusiast

Great for travel. Holds enough plus a lens and flash.


Great Case for M. 4/3 cameras and lens


from Va Beach. Va  -  Photo Enthusiast

Great for carrying M.4/3 gear-- holds my OM-D EM-5, four lens, and a Nissin Flash all in the "protected" compartment inside the larger bag. Still have more room in the rest of the bag and its zip-out part, as well as the three outside pockets. The reason for only 4-star is that the outside pockets should have zippers on them for security.


This is a great case......


from New York, NY  -  Casual Photographer

I wanted a case that doesn't look like a camera bag but yet able to protect the camera. It even has room for other things.


Versatile lightweight sling case


from SF bay area, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Great day bag. Easy top zip access to gear. Only improvement would be to add a zipper on one of the outer side pockets. This is a repeat purchase but in a different color. Carries DSLR, 18-200 mm lens plus 60mm macro or 50mm lens plus Canon S95 and extra batteries, SD card pack, cell phone, cable release, wallet and a few other small items. Can carry a water bottle on one end. Hiking or city a good all around bag.


Amazing carrying capacity ....


from Ashburn, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is my second Lowepro Passport Sling. It tends to be my preferred bag for vacations and walkabouts because it can carry two micro 43 cameras with lenses mounted + four additional lenses + extra batteries, etc. This allows me to avoid changing lenses in the field. I might be called a "camera bag collector" (I own nine ... some bigger, some smaller) and this is the only bag I own that allows me to do this.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MARILYN K  Allows me to carry my Canon 5D MarkII with a 24-105mm F4L lens attached at all times. The fit is snug but the camera is well protected and most importantly it means it with me at all times. There's room for a couple of CF cards, shutter release cable, camera raincoat and spare battery in the bag's special compartment. And there's more than enough room for my "stuff" -- best part, it doesn't look like a camera bag.
Shopper  Is this a new bag?
MICHAEL B  I seem to collect camera bags. And this is my all-time favorite. It has room for two micro four-thirds cameras with lenses mounts plus a few extra lenses in the rear storage area plus compartments for extra batteries, media, hand-held light meter (or water bottle), sun glasses, and wipes. This is one of the few camera bags that will hold two cameras with lenses mounted that doesn't appear to be designed for a month on the outback.
Amar B  I have a nikon d3100 with 18-55 mm, 55-200 mm, and a sunpack flash. Will all of that fit into thiscase?
GENEVIEVE C  Yes! The camera with a lens should fit in the "camera box", as well as your extra lens (there's a divider for the camera area). Flash (and lots of other stuff) will fit in the taller part. You should be fine! I have a D90 with the same lenses. Not sure if the D3100 is wider or not, but there's still quite a bit of space. The stiffer camera box is about 5" wide, but the soft sides give some flexibility.
