About Lowepro

SlingShot AW Series... The next generation of SlingShot AW from Lowepro. Designed for the photojournalist. Adopted by the enthusiast.

The fast-access SlingShot AW series builds on the inventive design of the original and incorporates what many photographers are looking for: faster access, extra space for personal items, improved organization, and the ability to add a tripod.

The SlingShot AW offers more volume in the upper compartment for extra accessories or personal items. A Hideaway Tripod Mount system with foldout holder and quick-release buckle secures a compact tripod to the side.

The same inventive design letting you quickly rotate to the front to access remains a tried-and-true feature of this customer favorite. Also includes: a patented All Weather AW Cover; 3 SlipLock attachment loops; built-in microfiber cleaning cloth; and more.

Great Bag

Just went to Disney and surrounding area for two weeks and this bag was great. I was able to tote around my gear with no problems. I put a Nikon D3100 w/ 18-55mm lens in it along with a 55-300mm lens. When the 55-300 was attached to the body it was difficult to put the camera in lens first, but it did fit well horizontally in the bag.

Solid pack, just not a right fit

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). All of this might be personal preference, but the thing about the actual design I don't like the most is the inabi...

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). All of this might be personal preference, but the thing about the actual design I don't like the most is the inability to rearrange the interior. It has the standard removable velcro wallls, but only thin strips of velcro on the interior sides of the bag, so they can really only go in one place; so unless you only have two extra lenses and they are that size thay will most likely bump around a bit. And the camera sits sideways in the bag when it's on your back with no support on the body, so the weight of the camera is on the lens attachment (unless your camera body is 10" wide). I was excited about this pack but it's going back.

Excellent for 1 camera and 1 lens

By

from Upland CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I love this bag for the great sling strap when hiking and traveling . Rides really well , the only problem I faced was carrying my 70-200. To carry it I need to put the camera around my neck which can throw me off balance on some trails. I think for me the 201 will be better. It took me a bit of trial and error to learn how to get into the sling properly ( both arms in and over my head ) and then put my camera around my neck. Lowe pro has high quality construction and the only brand I buy now.

Light and compact

By

from OC, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

This is great alternative to my other big camera bag for a quick day trip. It will force you to bring only what you need, maybe an extra lens and some filters. It will not weight you down. I do not give it 5* because it seems to work best on the left shoulder, due to its bottom "flapper" that doesn't work too well if you use it on the right shoulder...

Well made, but...

By

from Troy, ID  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Went to Lowepro site for a camera size check, but this is way too small for a Pentax K-3 with extra battery. Worse is the total lack of use instructions. If I am using it like the "quick draw" video suggests, it is too easy to spill the extra lenses that I want to carry. I'll stick with my two strap backpack. Babes don't run away that fast! I have some other Lowpro bags that I like much better. Going back.

Good concept but very painful to wear

By

from Florida  -  Photography Student

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. There is ample space for me to place filters, spare batteries and other carry along items which is useful. Unfortunately I don't think I would use this backpack again and therefore I ended up returning it.

Beautifully Made but Too Small

By

from Boise, ID  -  Photo Enthusiast

Nice concept, but too small for my Olympus OM-D and two lenses. Adorama handled my return quickly and fairly.

A size too small, otherwise a good bag

By

from Yorba Linda, CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Originally I ordered the 102AW thinking that it will be sufficient to hold a Canon 6D with 24-105L attached, 85/LII, 17-40/L, and 580EX, just like my other similarly-size generic sling bag. Well, it doesn't. I then ordered the 202AW and the gears fit that bag perfectly. Construction for the Lowepro bags are top notch so if you can live with just one additional lens in the bag then the 102AW would be a good choice, otherwise buy the 202AW instead.

Like it so far

By

from Ankeny, IA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I just got it but I think I like it so far. It is just a tad small. I wish there was another pocket or some space somewhere for another lens or more space to put cleaning accessories so I have room for another lens.

Great Product

By

from Woodway,TX  -  Casual Photographer

This innovative product is a step forward in being utilitarian, not one that just sits around the house. The bag is out of the way when not needed and carries my essentials for easy access. Overall, it is a great idea.

Looked bigger in photos

By

from gonzales, la  -  Pro Photographer

It looked bigger in the ad photos but for the price it seems to be well made and I'll use it when there is only a bit of gear to lug around.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MARIANNA S  I had hoped that it would be large enough for my purposes, but I exchanged it for the 202 AW model.
Gerard G  Is this big enough to fit a canon 40D with a 28-135 lens?
JUDITH Z  I have a Nikon 7000 and have no problem with it fitting with a 18-200 lens attached. Love this bag.
Shopper  Looking at the Lowepro SlingShot 102 AW - One review says that an Olympus OM_D would not fit, yet I see a much larger camera in the photos. Does a OM-D E-M1 fit? Thanks, Rob
JUDITH Z  I have a Nikon D90 and a D7000. Either one of them fit with a lens and at least 2 other lenses. Great, convenient bag!
